It always amazes me what people use to make their organizing process easier for them. Today, I want to share with you the 10 Organizing Items That Make Life Easier. Products that make organizing easy are always worth it. All of these items are used in my home. Some items, like the shoe organizer, can be used multiple times for different items around the house. You can read all about how I use shoe organizers here: 6 Ways Vertical Organizing Can Work For You. I have discovered that people get really creative with products to make organizing easy for them.
A couple weeks ago I did a post that featured 14 Experts share their favorite go-to organizing products and it gave me an idea to share with you some of my favorite organizing products. I can’t wait to show you the things I use in my house that help to make organizing easy in my everyday life.
1. Label Maker
This is the label maker I have used for over 10 years. In fact, I have two of them. I love my label maker. I label EVERYTHING. I love how neat and orderly things look when they are labeled. I have been thinking about getting a more high tech one, but haven’t decided upon one to get. So for now, I will stick with this label maker* that has never let me down.
My magnetic makeup board is still one of my very favorite items that I use everyday. I love how neat and orderly things stay on it. Now, putting on makeup in the morning takes less time and also takes up less space.
My magnetic makeup board was a gift to me from my sister. Her husband made it a couple years ago. However, I have seen several on ETSY that are really cute. Or, maybe you have someone handy in your life that could make you one. Wherever you get it, a magnetic makeup board will definitely make your makeup organizing easy.
I absolutely LOVE my clear organizing containers*. I use them in the refrigerator and freezer. I have different sized containers to hold different sized things. If your freezer is lacking organization and you can’t seem to find what you know you just bought, then maybe it is time for a little organization in your freezer. And, these containers are the way to go! Being able to see through the bins and access your food items makes refrigerator organizing easy and maintainable.
These storage bins with drawers* are so versatile. They can be used anywhere you are needing organizing. They aren’t the prettiest thing to stick on your shelf, but using them behind closed doors is a must! One of the places I use them is in our bathroom. You can check out how I use them for our bathroom organization.
Believe it or not, command hooks* are so useful for so many different things. A couple things I use them for is the inside cabinet door to hang all the keys we have for different things in the house. They are great to hang behind closet doors to hang clothes. For example, a pair of jeans, your unmentionables, night clothes, etc. I have some clear ones hanging in our closet for my necklaces. And of course the obvious, to hang pictures and wreaths.
If you have been reading my posts long enough, you know how much I love using shoe organizers*. And, the funny thing is, I don’t even use them for shoes. I have so many other uses for them though. From the post I did on vertical organizing, here are a couple things in the house I use the organizer for; behind the pantry, for scarves, for nail care (my youngest loves to do her nails) and of course, you could always use them for shoes. Some other great ideas would be craft supplies, cleaning supplies, and toys. Honestly, the list is limitless!
As much as I hate to admit it, I love baskets. I use baskets with lids, baskets without lids. Baskets* some how just make everything look more tidy. Did I mention that you are able to hide all kinds of good things in baskets with lids. The great thing about baskets is they can also be used for decoration and no one even has to know they are being used for storage as well.
If you have a home office* or even an area in your home you keep everything to do your bills, then you know what I am talking about when paper clutter starts to take over. I have found when we have a system in place for our bills or paper, then the clutter seems to be a bit less.
Storage ottoman’s* are another great way to hide things that you need often. They make things very accessible. If you have toys all over the living room floor, instead of getting onto your kids everyday about taking their toys to their room why not make it easy for them to put away their toys by having a storage ottoman that can also double as a foot stool. That is a win-win situation right there. We have a storage ottoman in our bedroom the holds blankets and pillows plus doubles as a foot stool for our chair and a half. It is so nice to have such a great piece of furniture be so functional.
Having shelves in your garage really helps with storage. Whether you are storing paint for the house or outside toys for the kids having a unit like this really helps to make the space look more tidy and function much easier. We have this storage shelf* in our garage and it has been very useful. And, I just have to mention how very easy it was to assemble!
I love organizing things! And finding products to help me along with my organizing journey is such wonderful feeling. When you try a product and it works for you and your family that is when you know that is a product you can’t go wrong with. All these products I have talked about today are all products I use in my home. I hope you are able to look around your house and see different organizing items that help you stay organized. Because in my opinion, being organized really does help you live your life more at ease.
