Home organization is one of my favorite things to shop for. I firmly believe that your home should be where you LIVE not just a place to collect STUFF. However, I also have a bit of a shopping problem… so how do I make my home livable while still owning the things I want to own?
By organizing it!
And per my usual standards- everything is affordable! I love that you can find helpful items on Amazon (***with free shipping,***) that don’t break the bank. Make sure to take measurements at home before you get things though to make sure they will fit and help you make your home as efficient as possible.
Why you need it: Getting your dresser drawers organized and under control can be actually life changing. Remove the chaos and make them efficient uses of space. I actually used to HATE using dressers because I felt like the items on the bottom never got worn and the top items got worn over and over and the drawers quickly became messy and chaotic.
Sorbus Fridge Bins Stackable Food Storage Containers BPA-Free Drawer Organizers for Refrigerator Freezer and Pantry, 6 pack, Clear
Why you need it: Unorganized fridges make cooking more stressful than it should be. However, when I was looking for home organization items I was more focused on getting my freezer organized. Since the freezer is not nearly large enough (but we haven’t committed to a deep freezer yet) we definitely need to maximize all of the space including vertically which can be difficult. We have all been there when you open the freezer door and things start falling out! Using these containers really makes a huge difference in the efficiency of your freezer and fridge.
Home- It Mop and Broom Holder, 5 Position with 6 Hooks Garage Storage Holds up to 11 Tools, Storage Solutions for Broom Holders, Garage Storage Systems Broom Organizer for Garage Shelving Ideas
Why you need it: Hanging your brooms, mops, swiffers, rakes, etc can make a massive difference in your garage or mudroom. This one just squeezes the handles which is better than the “grippy” options that seem to loose “grippy-ness” pretty quickly. Having all of these items in one place is great but it is also super nice to keep them from falling down from wherever they are propped. Also, not just helpful for garages but also for mudrooms or closets (which, guys, we all know storing brooms and mops in closets is the WORST because they all fall out and create chaos when you open the door!).
mDesign Modern Plastic Stackable Vertical Standing Water Bottle Holder Stand – Storage Organizer for Kitchen Countertops, Pantry, Fridge – Each Rack Holds 3 Containers, 2 Pack – Clear
Why you need it: Maybe this is just me but my water bottles quickly take up way too much space and become hard to access. This may also partly be because I hate getting rid of water bottle because most of them I have from an event/team/job etc. so they have value to me. But they were really starting to clutter up the cabinets and this like shelf is so worth $13 to have more organized cabinets.
Why you need it: this is quite possibly my favorite thing I have bought for my bathroom. I found this originally in store at At Home and was super excited to see it on Amazon for the same cost! I love how cute they have it decorated on the picture but mine is not nearly that cutely decorated. I use mine because there are no shelves in my bathroom so it holds a lot of my makeup, hair brushes, toiletries, etc. and seriously it makes me feel like my small bathroom isn’t actually that small. If you have small spaces it is so critical to use the vertical height of the space!
*tip: make sure to consider the placement of the toilet paper holder if it is permanently installed. If it is going to bump that lower shelf then get the option that doesn’t have that shelf! Trust me, it can end up being very inconvenient if you don’t think about that!
