There are so many great organizing products out there...but we frequently find ourselves using some of the same products over and over because they are so functional! With so many people tackling organizing projects in their homes, we thought it was a good time to share some of our favorites with you again.
These bins are literally some of the most functional bins EVER….we use them everywhere to organize everything! We have used them to organize books/papers, freezer items, sporting goods, food/pantry items, cleaning supplies….just to name a few ideas. These Multi-Purpose bins from the Container Store come in 4 sizes, are durable, and super affordable for any organizing budget!
Drawer Spice Organizers
Spice jars can give even the most organized chef a headache! Who has ever knocked over 4 bottles just to reach the one you really need? Who has accidentally purchased 3 bottles of ground cinnamon because you couldn’t find it in your jumbled mess of spices? One of our favorite ways to organize spice jars is with the use of in-drawer spice jar organizers. If you have the extra drawer space in your kitchen, this is a fabulous way to keep your spices easily accessible and neatly organized. These are 2 of the in-drawer spice organizers we like to use:
Drop-Front Shoe Boxes
We love to have different shoes for all different types of weather and styles, but finding a convenient way to store (while still being able to access them) can prove difficult. For those of us who are not lucky enough to have shoe shelving built into our closets, the drop-front shoe box is an excellent option for organizing shoes. You can stack the shoe boxes vertically to maximize your space, but still get to any pair of shoes easily without having to “dig” through and restack boxes!
If you’ve followed our past blog posts, you have probably read about our LOVE for these collapsible crates. These crates are sturdy and spacious when you need to store/organize a variety of items, and then fold flat when not in use to conserve space. We love to keep them in the back of our cars for groceries, but they can serve a million other purposes!
Bin Clip Labels/Label Holders
We cannot emphasize enough the importance of good labeling! When everything has a proper place (and you and everyone else in your family know where that place is) you will be much more successful at maintaining an organizing system over time. Bin clip labels can add function and style while helping you stay organized! These are a few of our “go-tos”…
We hope this helps you as you organize your home. Let us know if you have any favorite products of your own! Happy Organizing,
Jen and Emily
