Are you looking to get really organized this year? If you’re looking for ways to manage your kids’ toys, get your kitchen/home/office more orderly, stay organized during travel, and/or just minimize the myriad of charging cables and cords you may have, here are 11 unique and highly rated products!


1.) Lay-n-Go Large Activity Mat & Toy Organizer

“As a mom of two boys with LEGOs, I highly recommend this product! We’ve tried several different LEGO storage containers and this one is the best! My son can actually search for pieces very easily since it lays out the size of a small kiddie pool. The best part is when I pull the drawstring, all LEGOs are quickly but securely stored in a nice sturdy bag! We would never normally take my son’s HUGE Lego collection out of the house (vacations, play dates, etc.) for fear of losing pieces, but with this Lay-n-Go bag, it makes LEGO travel super easy!”

The Lay-n-Go Large Mat is a 5-foot diameter activity mat that converts into an easily transportable shoulder satchel, allowing for quick and effortless clean-up of small toy pieces! Toy collections used on the Lay-n-Go surface are easily spread out for hours of fun. Once playtime is over, the drawstring is pulled and the activity mat is converted back into a completely sealed, soft storage bag.

2.) Toy Storage Organizer with 12 Plastic Bins

“One of the best purchases I have ever made. It helps keep toys organized, off the floor, and easy for kids to find what they are looking for. Also, it’s easier to get my son to clean up after himself when he knows he can just throw the toys in the tubs. My son has tons of LEGOs but we don’t have a great system for storing them so we just use the large tubs and can move them around the house to where he’s playing and that makes cleanup easier too.”

This space-saving Tot Tutors Kids Toy Storage Organizer with bins stores children’s toys in easy-to-see, easy-to-access plastic bins. The 8 standard and 4 large easy access storage containers are removable, making it fun for kids to take out toys, books, and games for playtime and quick to clean up after.


3.) Three by Three Mighty Magnetic Strips

“I love these magnetic strips. My husband of 30+ years has given me numerous artistic cards over the years with lovely sentimental messages. I wanted a way to display them and the magnetic strips were the perfect solution. They are easy to install, work great and I love the look. Now I can enjoy the cards over and over again every day as I work at my desk!”

These Magnetic Strips are a practical and chic addition for displaying and posting photos, cards, coupons, tickets, reminders and receipts in your office, teen’s room, dorm room or kitchen.

4.) Brother P-Touch PT-D210 Label Maker

“This label maker is an organized person’s dream come true! There’s a HUGE variety of fonts and 99 different frames to choose from to personalize the labels. Also, if you purchase the tapes in the Eco Friendly packaging you’ll save money! I am very satisfied with my purchase!”

The P-touch PT-D210 makes it easy to create great-looking labels for your home and home office. With its convenient one-touch keys, you can quickly access fonts, symbols, frames and templates. Plus, you can preview your work on the display so that you know exactly how your label will look before you print.

5.) Self Adhesive Towel Hooks

“These towel hooks are easy to stick on the side of my cabinet next to my sink in my kitchen island. I had used an adhesive hook before and the towel often fell off if I didn’t make sure I carefully put it back on after using it or if anyone brushed by it. This neatly and securely holds my towel with a simple push and it stays there until I need to use it! Great for kids too!”

These towel hooks are a unique way to hold your towel in place while eliminating the frustration caused by frequent towel slip-offs and tearing up of towels due to sharp or rather poorly designed hooks. Use these small hooks to hang tea towels, hand towels, bath towels, wash clothes or anything alike!

6.) Modular Flip Out Bins

“I ordered a few sets of these flip out bins so that my husband would have a place to store all of his vitamin supplements. They are perfect for holding the really large vitamins and it eliminates the clutter I always had in my dining room of countless bottles everywhere. We also use ours for storing nails, screws and other odds and ends. It also comes with labels which I didn’t realize at first. Wonderful product!”

These Modular Flip-Out Bins are a fun and easy way to organize craft supplies, hardware and other small items. Grooves along all sides of the six-bin organizer allow you to join multiples together vertically or horizontally. It can be used on a desk, countertop or shelf – it can also be mounted to a wall.


7.) Smart Speaker Outlet Shelf

“This outlet shelf was exactly what we needed in our shared bathroom to calm the arguments over space for the Bluetooth speaker. My daughter always forgets to charge the battery in the speaker and so she’d stack it on top of a tissue box so her cord would reach. Then someone else would enter the bathroom, wash their hands, reach for the towel and bump the tissue box. Everything would crash to the sink and floor. This shelf solves the problem by keeping the speaker right around the outlet and plugged in. I love it because it’s very well made and should last for many years!”

Have you ever looked at your crowded kitchen counter, bathroom vanity, or nightstand and thought “I wish I had more space for my electronics and knick knacks!”. The ECHOGEAR Outlet Shelf is designed to be easily installed on your existing outlets. Once it’s installed, the shelf can easily hold anything up to 10lbs. That means your Bluetooth speaker, lava lamp, Amazon Echo, and drill can all have a new home.

8.) 10 Port USB Charging Station Dock

“This dock is perfect for conveniently charging our devices in a central location without having to use individual AC adapters. A great quality charger. I can put all four of my boys tablets on plus my husband and I can charge our phones, all at the same time. And we still have room to add four additional devices if needed. So far we have charged Apple and Android devices. We have also charged Bluetooth headsets, portable charges and portable speakers. The Apple chargers come attach to the charging station. It comes with 4 short cords that charge Android and other devices. Very convenient!”

Want to find a tidy way to centrally charge your devices? Hate the mess of tangling cables on your desktop? With 4 built-in retractable cables, the Levin 10-Port Charging Station organizes and charges up to 10 devices simultaneously! The USB ports can automatically identify the voltage of different devices and provide the power (0~2.4A) to smartphones, tablets, music players, cameras, and more.

9.) Habitat Harmony Braided Extension Cord

“This extension cord is so chic and looks cool, but it’s also really functional because multiple people can plug WHATEVER device they are using into it! And it’s super sturdy which makes it easy to take from place to place.”

The Habitat Harmony Braided Extension Cord features 2.4a dual USB ports that fast-charge a tablet and a smartphone simultaneously! The low-profile, right-angle plug fits in tight spaces and the multi-directional outlets fit bulky plugs. The 12′ power cord puts power where you need it!


10.) 4 Set Packing Cubes

“I am officially sold on packing cubes! These things are amazing! I can’t believe I’ve been packing without them my whole life. I packed my clothes, shoes, and toiletry bag for a 10 day trip to Europe. I packed them as I normally would first, and then packed them in the packing cubes. There was so much more room after packing in the cubes!”

One of the toughest things to do while packing for a trip is fitting everything you want to bring with you into your luggage. This packing cube system fixes that issue by neatly packing all your clothes tightly into space saving bags. It allows you to easily store and organize your clothing that makes it easy to pack and even easier to unpack. Your clothes will stay more wrinkled free & not get crushed during travels.

11.) Compact Hanging Toiletry Bag

“This toiletry bag is great for the traveler that wants to stay organized and keep all their toiletries in one place. I have traveled all my life and this is the best item I have purchased to make my bathroom life easier. I’ve had my organizer for at least 6 years now, and have done quite a bit of traveling. It has held up well, easy to clean, easy to pack, and very convenient to use.”

Hate having to scour through your suitcase to find your toothbrush or razor? Keep travel-sized bottles and spills contained and get quick access to essentials with this toiletry bag with two upper zip pockets and multiple soft mesh pockets. The hinged design and a built-in hook allows you to hang it anywhere.

    I have horizontal outlets (not vertical) – do they make shelves for those? Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Darn! I am not finding a horizontal outlet shelf as I search through. You could maybe try something like this to put near your outlet – Hope that helps!

  2. Maria

    Love our Lay-n-go! It is in use daily! Definitely worth the investment and it holds a ton of Lego’s.

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      That’s great to know how well it works for you!

  3. Christi

    I find it is easiest for me to pack clothes in plastic zip lock baggies. I can squeeze out the air and I save a LOT of room. I can also put sets of clothes together so there is no guesswork on what we are wearing each day.

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Great idea! Thanks for sharing.

    • Wanda

      I use extra large ziplock bags as diy packing cubes too! I found several awesome xlarge bags at our Dollar Tree two years ago, but I still see them in stock. Mine even have a handle. Makes packing wet swimming suits a breeze!

  4. Rochelle

    Thanks!! Ordered a couple of these items. Great tips.

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome!

  5. Sandy

  6. Traci

    I have to say although I own many of these products I absolutely HATE the stick on towel holder! The previous owner of our home had one in a tiny spot in the corner of the cabinetry and apparently had very wet kitchen towels so the constant moisture sucked the finish off the cabinetry. And I really hate that I need to spend the money to refinish them! So avoid wood!!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Bummer! Thanks for the tip Traci!

  7. Brittney Gardner

    I love these ideas!! Can’t wait to get a couple and put them to good use!

  8. lcky3grl8

  10. MayaLynn

    My favorite organization item is our IKEA shoe bins.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing your favorite!

  11. Mel R.

    Thanks for the tips! I’m gonna order that Smart Speaker Outlet Shelf as soon as I get my Amazon gc from Swagbucks. Hubby has his rechargeable razor sitting on the top of the toilet, and it constantly slides. Drives me nuts!

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      LOL! Sounds like a great fix for that problem! You’re welcome!

  12. Joanna

    For the towel hangers I put magnets on the back and have them on my dishwasher. They work great with no residue to worry about and I can move them around to the fridge etc

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks Joanna! What a great idea!

  13. Christy

    Thanks for doing this post and having all of these neat organizers all in one convenient place. I have some but will be getting the others.

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome!

  14. Jaclyn

    If you like the toy organizer but have more of a neutral color palette in the room, bed bath & beyond/buy buy baby sell a gray and white version. Ordered it for my living room because it looks like a toy bomb went off in there after Christmas.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Lol! Thanks for sharing what has worked well in your home Jaclyn!

  15. Lisa

    If you have the 12 bin toy storage, I also use it for paper storage during outdoor parties. I used aluminum foil pans because the colorful bins didn’t match the theme, but you could use the original bins.


  16. *Angela-Miles*

    I have a layngo makeup bag, saw it a couple years ago on the today show. I mostly use it for travel..really convenient. Also I use something similar to the flip out bin I got from Michael’s. They don’t flip out but they pull out and the tiny drawers are nice little storage. You can color code the little boxes

  17. spi_cy13

    I have the same exact compact hanging toiletry bag in the same exact color in the picture! How ironic! I bought it from L.L. Bean about 1.5 years ago, and I love it. I paid about $40 for it, and I use it on every trip that I take. It holds full size bottles too! 🙂
