If you have any kind of Pinterest board or handwritten list called “Things I Want to Do in My Home,” you know that sometimes it can feel tough to make those aspirations a reality. But guess what?

Your daily essentials, all in one spot.

The majority of charging stations are no longer overly techy products that stick out like a sore thumb in your decor. Charging stations have become increasingly sleek and tasteful, and some of them even have a few tricks up their sleeve.

This handmade charging station is a great example of this. Called a Catchall™ stand, it does exactly that, serving as a charging station and providing slots for basics like your wallet, keys, and watch. Shaped like a jigsaw puzzle piece and crafted in wood, it artfully organizes while fitting easily into modern home decor.

4. A small-scale command center to hang on your wall

This is a must-have for entryway organization.

Command centers are all the rage these days. You’ve likely seen them on Pinterest—entire corners, cubbies, or desks in homes devoted to filing papers, organizing mail, signing permission slips, and storing keys.

A command center can act as a nerve center for a family, but it doesn’t have to take up that much space. Instead, turn to a wall-mounted command center that you can hang in your entryway. This organizer features a slot for mail and magazines and six hooks for leashes, keys, coats, and more, and it will only take up a small section of your wall instead of a whole corner.

The clear, unfussy way to organize your fridge.

Almost all of us have those cluttered fridges where things get lost behind other things—you’ve likely lost a fair share of forgotten yogurts to expiration dates. That’s where this hack—in the “Why didn’t I think of that?” category—comes in.

Simply place your items in clear containers and categorize them—salad dressings and sauces in one, cooking ingredients in another. You can even devote an entire bin to your beloved yogurts, keeping them together front and center. This set of three organizers can also be used in freezers and pantries.

Who said organization can’t be chic too?

People have come to love collapsible items for their homes. Instead of a basket that takes up space when it’s not in use, foldable fabric bins can be tucked away and saved for another day. Many of these fabric bins have a look that’s fresh and modern, ideal for storing small towels, toys, or books.

A small-space solution for kitchens and bathrooms.

More and more people are downsizing (we can attribute this to the minimalism and tiny house movements), and as a result, they have less space for storage. But with a little ingenuity, you can implement storage solutions that are effective in small spaces, like a rolling cart that slides in and out of those random, “What can I do with this?” gaps. Slim with plenty of shelving, this cart can be used in a kitchen, a bathroom, or can be used out in the open as a trimmed-down shelf.

Because that’s what organization comes down to—creativity. Between these imaginative products and thinking outside the box, you can bring all those modern-day organization tricks into your own home, and in turn, make your life a whole lot easier.
