The 17 organizational products mentioned below solve many of the patterns and problems that people struggle with organizing across the board.

17 Best Home Organization Products

Water Bottle Holder

No more knocking over water bottles like bowling pins trying to find the right one, this water bottle holder solves that problem by storing bottles vertically as opposed to horizontally. We have this system set up in one of our kitchen cabinets and everyone that opens that cabinet comments about how brilliant it is!

Hanging Laundry Hamper

These hanging laundry hampers were a total game changer. We have a tiny laundry room that doubles as our mudroom and the rolling laundry sorter was taking up valuable floor space. Once I hung up these laundry bags, it revolutionized my family’s laundry system. Now the entire family brings their laundry down one day a week, sorts into these bags by whites/ lights/ darks, and this room stays tidy and easy to clean since the bags are off the floor.

Another use for these bags are in dorm rooms, bathrooms, closets or other small spaces to collect dirty laundry or even stuffed animals or toys! Gosh I love a product that can be used in so many ways.

Sorting Basket (several colors available)

My office is the main space for processing every piece of mail and package that arrives at our home, plus so much more (it’s where I organize papers, kids do their homework, etc.) That means we have a lot of rubbish in this space, most of which is recyclable. This trash and recycling sorting basket was pricey but worth every penny. I removed one of the adjustable dividers so now my basket has room for 1/3 trash and 2/3 recycling. It’s an easy and beautiful way to become more eco-friendly.

Magazine File Holders

Magazine/ File Holders are the Swiss Army Knife of the organizing world! While I recommend reducing the amount of papers you have, sometimes you can’t get rid of everything. Use these versatile file holders to sort magazines, files, hold samples and swatches, receipts, coupons, cookbooks by theme, and so much more.

Jewelry Cabinet with Mirror

I super puffy heart LOVE my new jewelry cabinet! I have a full review coming soon, but it’s allowed me to move all my jewelry off the countertops and store them in a safe and handy way. Now I simply open it up and select what I need, no tangled chains or lost earrings any more!

Desk Calendar

Even though I use my 2020 printable planner AND use iCal, I still have a desk calendar where I write down every single appointment, deadline, and goal. This makes it easy for me to section off time blocks for tackling major projects and keep on top of my goals. Also, the kids use it to check and see what’s coming up (my daughter has one of these too, mounted on her wall, which has been extremely helpful in helping her organize.)

Sturdy Oil Rubbed Bronze Hooks

We use these everywherrrrrre in our home. I like that they match each other so everything looks streamlined. These hooks are heavy duty and sturdy when attached to the studs or using drywall anchors, and match my home’s decor. I currently use them to hold:

  • a stepladder (pictured)
  • drying rack in laundry room
  • aprons
  • cleaning supplies
  • laundry bags (see above)
  • coats
  • towels in bathrooms

Non-Slip Velvet Hangers

These slim, velvet-lined hangers are our go-to hangers. I love seeing my clothes with matching hangers, it elevates the look of my closet. Plus these won’t damage clothes, and keeps them from falling off the hangers. I did try them in my kids’ closets and unfortunately they were *too* non-slip so they’d yank their clothes off and break the hangers. Maybe in a year or two they’ll be able to handle them!

Spice Drawer Liners

GAH I love my spice drawer so much. No more knocking over spice jars or taking up valuable counter space with large spice holders. Here’s the step-by-step tutorial on how to organize spices in a drawer.

Heavy Duty Shredder

It was so worth it for us to invest in a heavy duty cross-cut shredder. I used to have a cheap one that kept breaking, and then I would take my papers to shred to office stores and pay them to do it which is a waste of time and space spent holding those papers. Getting this shredder has been awesome, I use it daily to shred documents, mail and papers we no longer need. Better safe than sorry in this day and age.

Stylish Charging Station

I’ll snap an actual in-use photo at some point, but my husband got me this charging station for Christmas and it’s practical and pretty! Not only does it solve a problem by corralling all your electronics that need to be charged in one area, but it looks good while doing it. This would be fantastic in a guest room and much-appreciated by guests as well.

Cord Organizing Clips

These little cuties stick just about anywhere and keep your cords organized, handy, and in place. I have them under desks, inside charging stations, and on nightstands. Love them.

THE BEST Food Storage Containers

As you can see from my pantry makeover, investing in these storage containers as so worthwhile. They keep food fresh and beautifully displayed so it’s easy to see what we have and what’s getting low. Also, I suffer from an autoimmune type of arthritis that makes opening jars and boxes difficult. These pop-tops solve that problem. Two thumbs up from the whole family.

Brother Label Maker

I use this label maker AT LEAST once a week if not more. You can change out the tape to print on a white background with black letters or clear background with white letters or really anything your heart desires. I use it to consistently label EVERYTHING and while my family jokes about it, I have the last laugh when they find what they’re looking for in mere seconds thanks to my snazzy labels. 😉

The Perfect Lazy Susan

Ahhhh, the humble Lazy Susan! These are essential for maximizing space in corner cabinets and I love using them under sinks to hold necessary supplies. I especially love this style because it has sides to hold everything in no matter how intensely someone spins it (I’m looking at you, kiddos.)

Essential Oil Wall Racks

Okay, this is a bonus one since I get asked all the time where I get my essential oil racks. While they weren’t made for essential oils, I love that they fit my bottles and look streamlined while doing so (PS- here’s how to organize essential oils in every room in your home.)

  1. Please change the color of your in-article text, it is so light, it can be difficult to read. You have great articles on your blog and I’d hate to miss any. ?

  2. I like reading your blog. I’m retired so I can take my time and do as I wish. I want to do some traveling and the anxiety get’s so bad that I usually back out. I have an older yorkie who is deaf and now I see cateracts in his eyes. Skippy is an insecure 5# and he’s a rescue and I’m afraid he will feel like I abanned him if I go. I would have to board him. Can you give me some reassuring to go on my trip for 11 days.
