As promised here’s your bonus content for decluttering your home, compliments of my friend and fellow blogger, Tisha Walker. This gal is one of my favorite people when it comes to organization and clutter free, and for lots of other reasons too. I tell her all the time that I want to be like her when I grow up. I secretly want her habits to transfer over to me! Tisha is the ‘Queen of Let It Go’ and she inspires me to do a better of job of keeping my life simple and free from clutter. I hope she does the same for you. So get ready to contain yourself!
I was asked about my favorite organizing products, so I wanted to put as many as possible into one post. You can’t talk about organization without talking about where to put everything, and that means attractive, functional containers. In this post, I will show you some of my favorites and where you can get your own.
Let’s talk shoes, clothing, and accessory organization first. I love my shoe racks from Amazon! I have two stacked. They are so easy to assemble and can be configured several different ways. One rack easily holds nine pairs of shoes.
Pegboards are a great way to keep my jewelry organized in my closet which makes it easy to coordinate jewelry to outfits. I couldn’t locate the exact ones I have for you, but I found this one on Amazon that got a 5-star review. I use the heck out of Amazon! If I need to order more, I will go with this one!
Another purchase that has come in handy is this sturdy clothing rack from Amazon. It allows me to assemble outfits for the week which makes mornings go much smoother. Place it near a full-length mirror for an instant dressing area. It could also be used in a laundry room as a drying rack or in a mudroom for coats and boots. I could even see it in a guest room!
3-Tier Metal Wire Basket
I purchased a 3-tier metal wire basket and hung it on the wall above my tub. I LOVE THIS. It keeps my bath products handy and looks good doing it! I got mine at Kohl’s. This could be used so many different ways. I can see it used in the kitchen for fruit & veggies; in a closet for scarves, hats, and flip flops; or near the toilet for extra rolls of toilet paper.
I moved this rolling cart with removable trays from beside the tub to the kitchen. It works wonderfully both places. I got this one at T.J. Maxx, but look on Amazon too. I am careful not to buy containers unless I have a pretty good idea about where I will use them, but I am not afraid to move something from room to room based on my needs!
Ok, I guess we can move to the pantry now. I worked on it again yesterday. I am using these OXO storage containers for basic staples. They make me happy because they look better than mismatched bags and boxes. They also keep food fresher!
I found the blue bins at Target, but I was unable to locate a link for you. These from Amazon are very similar. I actually like the white a lot and will likely go with it for future purchases. White just looks clean.
I can’t say enough good about my Raskog Utility Cart from IKEA. There are so many uses for this thing! I loved the first one so much that I now have three of them. One is in the guest bathroom, one is in the pantry, and one is in my classroom. The one in my pantry was being used as a cleaning cart but now holds bread. The price was very reasonable. I had all mine shipped; assembly wasn’t difficult at all. Order one (or three); you won’t be sorry!
I hope that gives you some ideas to get you started! I won’t recommend products that I don’t believe in. If you purchase any of these, I’d love to see how you’re using them!
