Best Organization Products to Start Your Organizing Journey With

So you've realized the benefits of organization and want to start but don't know where to begin. There are entire stores, like ours, and shows dedicated to getting organized so I can understand how the project seems daunting. Here is a list of the best organization products and must haves to get you started. 

Drawer Organizers - We like to start here because an organized drawer is the quickest thing to organize so you can feel accomplished sooner.  

Drawers hold a variety of small objects and we waste precious time searching thru the clutter to find what we're looking for. Drawer organizers help you sort what's in those drawers so you can quickly get on with your day.

We like the above honeycomb drawer organizers best because they can fit large or small drawers, can be cut down to fit your drawers more perfectly, and can be detached and attached for use in other drawers as your storage space evolves.  

Small Bins with Lids - Think of these as the drawer organizers for your bookcase or cabinets

So you're ready to move on to bigger things. Small bins act as sorters for bookcases, display cabinets, shelves, and storage cabinets. We suggest getting the ones with lids because they are then stackable to take advantage of vertical space.

The popular korean style bins with lids above have an inset design to the lids so the bins you're stacking can sit into them to prevent from sliding around. We also suggest bins with sturdier handles, like cutouts on the side or molded into the design like the ones above, for longer use and minimize handle breakage over time. 

Small Racks & Shelves - Perfect for taller shelves or renters that can't drill holes to add shelves on the walls or in cabinets

Continue to take advantage of that wasted vertical space with shelves and racks. I like to use them for my plates because stacked plates are heavy and it makes it easy to grab my favorite ones when they're divided this way.  Smaller racks and shelves can nearly double your cabinet shelves made for taller items so you can create storage space as well.

Our choice are these baked varnish metal shelf racks that come in two colors and two sizes to go with any home decor. Because they are made of heavy duty metal, you can stack racks on racks to customize your cabinet system. I like the slotted rack design because that means the shelves don't hold onto crumbs and stains as much as a solid shelf. 

Hooks & Coat Racks - Clear out and create floor space by going up with organization

Not only do hooks and coat racks make a great and simple organizer to have, they can also add to your home accent and decor. Compact in size and coming in a variety of quantities suited to your needs, get clutter off the floor by introducing coat racks and hooks to the entrance and behind the doors of your house.

I especially love the function of the above bamboo wall mount folding coat rack because the hooks fold in when not in use to save space, and save from scratching. Plus it's very aesthetically pleasing.  The natural bamboo finish is an elegant accent to your home decor and the sturdy metal black hooks add a modern spin to the overall look. 

So your drawers are all sorted, you added space to your cabinets, and the clutter is off your floors. That is definitely a great start! And all it took was just a few steps with a few best organization products. Soon you'll see and feel the benefits of being organized. There is less clutter in your home. You know where things are.  Being organized and staying organized has many benefits, saving time and money just to name a few!
