My Top 5 Home Organizing Products
In your search for order and the perfect storage solution, you will find that many home organizing products will help you keep you organized. However, not all products are the same and the products you do choose will depend on your need, your style, and your budget. I have a few products that I love and they have truly made my life more productive. Just so you know these photos are from my home, I actually do use these products.
OXO Good Grips Storage POP Containers
I have to admit, these containers are an investment but they are well worth it. It took me a while to complete my collection but thanks to the coupons from Bed, Bath, and Beyond, my set is complete. I use them in my pantry to store cereal, crackers, rice, nuts, candy, coffee, and popcorn. (second shelf down in the picture) The containers are airtight and very easy to open and close. I also like that they are clear so I do not need to add labels
The Lazy Susan is versatile, inexpensive, and it can be used in almost any space. I have one in my pantry to hold cooking oils (3rd shelf down). With a quick spin, I can find whatever I need. This works well in those deep corner cabinets where everything disappears.
Clear Shoe boxes
You can find clear shoe boxes in many sizes: regular shoe box, men’s shoe box, tall shoe box, even a boot box. Hint: ankle boots fit perfectly in the men’s shoe box. I use these boxes for shoes but they can hold toys, paperwork, craft supplies, pantry items. The possibilities are endless and these boxes are affordable. You can find them anywhere but The Container Store sells a variety of sizes
I found this drawer organizer at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and I can’t believe how versatile they are. Similar organizers can be found at Target, Walmart, The Container Store, and Home Goods. I use them for jewelry, belts, and to organize my nightstand drawers.
Desktop File Box
I can’t say enough about the desk top file box. It is the best way to keep your paper organized. I created file folders for my kids, home, and to-do. I also keep a separate desk top box for my business paperwork. The idea is to have your “action” paper in front of you so that you don’t forget about it. This is the place where I keep school schedules and school information for each of my kids. I keep to-do’s and reminders in my “To-Do” folder and any general household paper (pending internet orders, receipts I am keeping short term, etc.) is kept in the “Home” folder.
