Below is a list of a few of our favorite organizing products, just in time for the holiday giving season. Click on an image to view more details.
Shelf risers help you create a second shelf within your cabinets to maximize your storage. Both the height and width are customizable to fit your needs. These are fantastic for upper cabinets or pantries that do not offer the option to add additional shelves. Consider a shelf riser for your juice glasses/coffee mugs, canned goods, boxed tea, vitamins & medications, pet treats & supplements… the possibilities are vast. This is one of our favorites as it offers both adjustable width and height. It is shown as two stacked as an option for taller needs, but functions very well as single units in upper cabinets.
Lazy Susan organizers are extremely versatile. We love this one for several reasons. It is made of a renewable resource and offers a fairly low profile. It rotates smoothly and the upper level can take some weight as the supports are bamboo instead of plastic. Lastly, the size is ideal for upper cabinets! These are ideal for your spices and supplements/medications. Instead of having to dig through to find what you need, just turn the lazy susan. We love to put items in alphabetical order (i.e. Adobe, Allspice, Basil, Cloves….) for easy collection.
These handy clear organizer trays are extremely versatile and can be used in the bathroom, kitchen, office, craft space, etc… With various sizes, you’ll find the right combination to puzzle together a custom organizer for your space. Separate your things by like item and then contain together (i.e. lipsticks, nail care, etc..) Rubber feet make sure your trays stay where you put them when opening and closing drawers.
This expanding silverware and utensil tray made of renewable bamboo is both attractive and durable. With easy reach for your butter knives, forks, and spoons, it also includes spaces for those ‘other’ lesser-used items like soup spoons and serving spoons. In addition, the expanding sides allow for additional utensils to maximize your storage to custom fit your kitchen drawers.
If you don’t like the look of a knife block on your counters OR if you’re storing knives openly in a drawer, consider a knife tray. These safely store your knives in a drawer while keeping them organized and easy to access. We love these bamboo trays and you’ll find there are many configurations and sizes to accommodate the drawer you need to fit.
Do you have a space that just doesn’t have enough storage? How about a bathroom with a pedestal sink with no storage? This metal rolling cart with extra storage pouches is the perfect solution! If your family needs extra storage in that powder room for a daughter who needs extra space to get ready – she can utilize this rolling cart to hold all the necessary products. Best of all – it can be rolled into a closet or a bedroom for storage when guests are over. Do you craft but don’t have a designated space for your art or craft supplies? This is the solution! So versatile and can easily move from space to space yet is small enough to tuck into a corner or closet when not in use.
These mobile shelving units are perfect for a mudroom, laundry room, garage, or any other space where you need more storage. This product also offers shelf liners to keep smaller items or items with feet from falling through. Metal shelving with casters are available in many sizes and styles. The locking casters allow you to move the unit to access additional space or simply to clean below/behind it. Consider these in a laundry room for supplies or even to store the oversized Costco quantities of paper towels. In a garage, they may hold gardening supplies or tools, and in a pantry, they may hold small appliances. The best feature of these shelves is the customization. The shelf height can be set in increments to the height desired. Heavier items should be placed on the bottom. If you have heavy boxes or cases of water, consider putting those on the bottom. Then the shelves higher can be placed closer together. At eye level put smaller items that will be easier to see. If needed, there are vendors that sell additional shelves if you find you’re in need. We often purchase taller units and then add a shelf or two to maximize the space. Most homes don’t take advantage of the vertical space and these help you maximize it.
With any organizing tool you select, it is important to know what you want to store. These tools are extremely useful, but like anything can become clutter if not put into use and designated for a purpose. Follow us for more tips on sorting and organizing your spaces.
Happy Holidays and Happy Organizing!
