Organizing Products You Need in Your Life Right Now

Organizing Products You Need in Your Life Right Now

I know I’m not the only one purging and organizing my house every January so this one will be no different.  Thanks to being at home the last 9 months, I’ve actually be organizing my heart out all year. So when would be a better time to share my absolute favorite organizational find than now?

In no particular order, these are my favorite products to get your life in order this year or every other.  (If you don’t want to read my little story that comes with each item, feel free to just look at the list directly on my Amazon shop here.)

Pretty pre-made food labels:  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, consistently labeling will make anything look bespoke.  Take a bunch of recycled jars or boxes and throw some pretty labels on them and watch the magic happen. I made these for myself a while back using my Cricut but it took forever to design and print and weed.  If I had known pre-made ones had existed, I would be all over it!  If you don’t love this font choice, there are loads more to choose from – just search around.
Stackable acrylic drawers: These were my hero storage find last year. I used them to organize the chaos that was breeding in my under sink storage areas.  They are amazing!  Not only does it look so much better having these pretty bins staring back at me, it also makes it a snap to find everything. Now when I need a bandage or a nail polish or a hair tie, I know exactly what drawer they live in.  They also help so much in not purchasing more of something you already have but can’t find. They can be a bit of an investment but they are worth it! They come in a few different sizes so be sure to measure careful around any existing plumbing to make the most of your space.
Toiletry Bag: While we haven’t actually gone anywhere exciting last year, we did spend a good amount of time at our place at the Jersey shore.  Having a good sized toiletry bag already stocked that can hold full sized products as well as all the other little things I carry was perfection! The clear bag makes it easy to find. The little pocket is great for earrings or hair pins. I also tend to leave it right on my sink sometimes – its easy to tuck away when Im cleaning up. (Someone recommended this bag to me last year but I can’t remember who! If it’s you, thank you!)  For $7 its hard to beat this little workhorse.
Water Bottle Organizer: Before I got this, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had a stray water bottle fly off the shelf and try to kill me.  Between the kids’ school cups, coffee thermos and big water bottles for long park days, we seem to have so many and there isn’t a good way to cut down on the number. These organizers hold them all a little cubby so they can stay with their cap and not come flying out or get lost. 

Reusable Ziploc Bags: Are we the only ones who go through an insane amount of those plastic throw away bags?  They are so handy for just about everything but also super wasteful.  These can help with that.  While they won’t completely replace my need for disposable ones, at least this will cut down on them somewhat. 

Baskets Baskets Baskets: This is the answer to one of the most common questions I get.  How do I keep my house tidy even though I have young kids with tons of toys.  The answer is simply: baskets.  Everything and anything looks better contained. And when it comes to toys, something pretty and texture like these rope baskets are just lovely to look at in any setting. They also make post play clean up a breeze.  Kids can easily throw everything into a basket without much assistance. If you don’t have kids, they also work really well for blankets, storing throw pillows, laundry, towels and pretty much anything that looks sloppy sitting on the floor.

Skincare Organizer: This little 5 compartment storage bin is my personal solution to makeup/skincare products I like to have on my bathroom sink counter without looking like a pile of junk.  It holds a surprising amount of stuff but doesn’t take up too much room and is easy to clean.  When it starts to overflow, I know its time to purge.

Old School Label Maker: I know I’ve mentioned this before but its the best 10 bucks I’ve ever spent on anything organization related. I use it A LOT and I don’t really know how I went this far in my life not having one.  No need to charge it or download it or find batteries – it at the ready whenever you need it.  And each little role of tape lasts a shockingly long time.  Great as housewarming gifts too! Everyone needs one.

Silicone Toilet Brush: Okay so maybe this isn’t strictly organizational so I’m cheating here but I have to profess my love for a toilet brush somewhere and this seemed like the most logical list for it.  First off, it’s footprint is TINY – much smaller that the typical toilet brush you probably already own.  Second it works just as well if not better. Third its made of silicone so “nothing” sticks to it if you catch my drift.  This is the better mousetrap.  Get it.

Refrigerator Organizing Bins:  Ok this one is definitely in the “nice to have”, not “must have” list but if you have been following organizing tik tok or the Kardashians you know that perfectly organized fridges are the hot things to have in 2021.  I admit I haven’t quite gotten to a point where I would share the content of my fridge with the world but these little containers (they come in lots of different shapes and sizes to suit just about anything you eat so make sure you figure out what you need before ordering) make eating and cooking a visual treat!

So there you have it!  Do you have any organizational favorites you want to share with me? I’d love to hear all about them!
