The best organizing products allow you to see what you have.
Acrylic is great because it is shatter-resistant and you can easily see what is inside.
Acrylic organizing box:
This is the best acrylic box because it is so versatile. It holds letter-sized hanging file folders and is great for desk-top use. It is also great for craft supplies and pantries! There is nothing better than an organizing product with multiple uses. Clear containers are great because you can see what you have, and reminds you to keep things neat. As always, measure your space before purchasing.
Acrylic Airtight Food Storage Containers:
Removing snacks, pasta and popcorn from boxes/bags and storing them in clear, airtight containers has so many benefits: food stays fresher longer, you can see what you have, no spills and they stack nicely so they are space savers. Tip: always remember to shop your pantry before you shop the grocery store.
Acrylic Handle Food Storage Containers:
Containers with handles are great for storing items on higher shelves. The handles make it so much easier to reach.
The best organizing products make the best use of space and allow you be a little “lazy.”
Lazy Susans have been around for centuries! It’s said that Thomas Jefferson invented it for his daughter so that she could reach her food easier. Not sure if that story is true, but I like it. Lazy Susans are so versatile; use them in pantries, bathrooms, craft rooms, anywhere and everywhere there are round bottles that need organizing. Put them in awkward corners to use wasted space or under-the-sink cabinets with limited space. They come in multiple sizes, so measure your space before you order.
The best organizing products use underutilized wall and door space.
Behind the door “shoe” organizer:
You can use these amazing space savers for storing and organizing more than just shoes. Use them for water bottles or snacks in the kitchen. Scarves and accessories in the closet. Small toys and books in the playroom. Cleaning products and utility items. The possibilities are endless!
Wall hanging baskets:
Use your wall space to get files and mail off your desk. You can even use wall baskets in the pantry for snacks or in the bathroom for toiletries. Get creative.
Label ALL the things!
The label maker:
You can always hand-write labels, BUT label makers give you a clean, consistent look. If you are going to take the time to get organized you might as well make it look as beautiful as possible, right?
Wet erase markers:
If you enjoy your hand writing or are always needing to change out labels then wet erase markers are great! Use wet, not dry erase markers. Dry erase markers are too easy to wipe off. Wet erase markers easily write on glass and acrylic containers. When you need to switch out your label, they quickly erase with a damp cloth.
Always keep in mind that products don’t keep you organized; Good systems and habits keep you organized. However, a great organizing product can sometimes be life changing.
