Our Favorite Organization Items (To Get Your Life In Order!)

I don’t know if there’s a scientific explanation for it, but I always feel like when January hits I am ready to get rid of clutter and make areas of my home more efficient. When I organized my hall closet in one afternoon last year, it really helped make me aware of how much change you can make in a short period of time. And since then, I’ve been constantly aware of the next areas to organize on my list. Since I’ve been trolling the Internet for different ways to keep my home tidy and together, I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you for whoever else is in the same headspace this time of year! I divided up my favorites into “kitchen” and more “general” organization areas, so let’s start with the kitchen!

Let me say, getting a wall-mounted broom holder like that is one of my favorite things—no more falling over onto the floor and it keeps all the things with handles organized. I also love lots of those fridge bins to keep my fridge tidier as well (anyone else have everything fall out when they open their standing freezer? I totally see why people go for the freezers on the bottom now …). I used a lot of those when I organized my fridge in one afternoon—it was amazing! I think this one that holds cans is my top fave and I like that I can stack things on top of it too since it has a shelf on top.

OK, let’s get to the rest of the house!

I also have several pairs of these drawer dividers in our clothes dressers and they are great for dividing up the sections for exactly the size that you want. Lola has lots of little accessories like hair clips and sunglasses, so I got a hanging holder to keep them all together in her closet and it’s a big help. Also, I love a good woven basket to keep items in since you can have them out where you can see them and they still look like a cute decoration (also great for toys and throw blankets and whatnot). I also realized I was making some big storage mistakes in my bathroom recently and figured out how to fix them, so it’s way more efficient in there as well! Hope you found something here to get your year off to an organized start! xo. Laura

  • Hi! I love getting recommendations, but the format you currently use doesn’t encourage me to check out the items out recommend – the pictures are presented without description. It would be nice to have comments saying what the item is used for/how you use it to get organized! I know it might be less minimalist and compact, but I think it would be more useful.

    • Hi! I do talk about some of the items in the paragraphs underneath the photos and I also try and choose photos that show what the items are for so you can quickly scan and see what’s useful for you but I hear your thoughts! Thanks!


  • I love home origination, please more posts like this! I find it so frustrating that most storage bins etc can be so expensive. I want to organize our pantry but I am afraid I’ll have to spend at least 1k on bins which seems crazy to me! If you find affordable solutions please post!

  • Hey-nice ideas, thanks! Number 4 isn’t working sad,y though and it looks awesome too! ????

  • Love this list! Next time can you put the numbers in the same spot next to the picture? I had to open up all the links, kept clicking on the wrong numbers! LOL. Thanks so much Laura, I’m off to buy a few of your recommendations. 🙂
