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 myriad charging cables and cords you may have laying around, here are 12 unique and highly-rated products!
Organize the toys.
Not only is the Lay-n-Go Large Mat great for the home, but it’s handy for traveling, too! The 5-foot diameter activity mat converts into an easily transportable shoulder satchel, allowing for quick and effortless clean-up of small toy pieces, such as LEGOs, toy cars, figures, Barbie dolls, and more! Once playtime is over, just pull the drawstring and the activity mat is converted back into a completely sealed, soft storage bag. Easy peasy!
“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!”
This colorful, space-saving Tot Tutors Kids Toy Storage Organizer with bins stores your children’s toys in easy-to-see, easy-to-access plastic bins. The eight standard and four 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).
“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.”
Simplify your home and office.
These handled baskets are available in sizes Small or Large (both under $5) and are great for the pantry or fridge for storing food, under your sink to organize cleaning supplies, in a cabinet to hold hair accessories… really anywhere! You can even use them to store diapers/wipes and grab them in a hurry!
“Love these baskets! From holding laundry cleaning supplies (large bin) on a stacked laundry center; to the kitchen for spice bottles, coffee supplies, snacks; to the linen closet for first aid supplies and my husbands shaving/contact needs. Super product!”
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.
“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!”
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 you know exactly how your label will look before you print.
“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!”
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, washcloths, or anything similar!
“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 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. They can be used on a desk, countertop or shelf – they can also be mounted to a wall.
“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!”
Declutter electrical items.
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.
“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.”
Want a tidy way to centrally charge your devices? Hate the mess of tangling cables on your desktop? This dock allows you to power, charge, and organize up to 10 USB-powered devices simultaneously using only one wall outlet. It provides 10 smart IC integrated charging ports to auto-detect and adjust power output, rapid charging your devices to maximize charging efficiency.
“Just recently purchased this 10-port USB Charging station for my kindles, phone, etc. It’s great with everything at easy access. It sets on the stand beside my bed and I plug everything in when I go to bed and its all charged when I get up. No more hunting down a cube or socket to charge everything. Its all right there. Love it.”
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!
“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.”
Stay organized while traveling.
11. Packing 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 which makes it easy to pack and even easier to unpack. Your clothes will remain more wrinkle free and less likely to get crushed during travels.
“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!”
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 allow you to hang it anywhere.
“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.”
