Buying Guide: Top Items Organized People Have In Their Homes

Words Erin Zimmer

If you’re aspiring to be one of those “organized people” this year (everyone raises their hand), there are a few items that can help you get everything in order.

None of these products will cost much or take up much space; in fact, they’ll actually make you feel like you have more space in the house (win win!). From drawer organizers to bag clips, here are things you’ll want to have to feel more organized.

Keep chaos at bay in any drawer of the house with this adjustable organizing tray. Sure, it’s great for utensils but it’s also good for other drawers in the house (we’re looking at you, junk drawer). It has six movable dividers so you can customize it to fit whatever lives in the drawer and it won’t slide around thanks to non-slip feet.

Everything looks more organized when clipped. Plus these clips have magnets on the back so you can hang important mail on the fridge instead of letting it pile up on the countertop. They’re also great for clipping snack bags in the pantry.

Hooks are any organized person’s best friend! Everything looks more organized when it’s hanging instead of on the the ground. Add a hook to the back of any door, especially for grab-and-go items like jackets or bags.

There’s nothing more satisfying than a perfectly organized pantry. You’ll instantly feel calmer when you neatly sort all of your dry pantry goods (grains, pasta, pretzels, etc.) into POP Containers and stack them on the shelves. The airtight seal keeps food fresh and since it’s clear, you can see exactly how much you have left (and when you need to restock that quinoa). Bonus points if you label the containers.

Here’s another way to keep your kitchen organized. It has a narrow, elliptical shape so you can slide it into most tight corners or it can sit flush against a wall. It can hold 16 utensils into three different compartments.

We’ve all been there—you’re tossing shirts left and right out of your dresser in search of the one shirt you want to wear. Keep your dresser drawers organized (maybe you separate long-sleeve from short-sleeve, or socks from underwear) with these dividers, which slide easily into drawers.

Nobody likes opening a fridge only to find rotting greens and soggy apples hiding in the back somewhere. Keep your produce fresher longer with a GreenSaver—it has carbon filters to trap and absorbs ethylene gas, slowing down the aging process of fruits and veggies. They can all live together into this contained compartment, plus the basket doubles as a colander for rinsing.
