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? Those bloggers and pinners you envy aren’t super humans, and many of those inventive hacks you see online can be recreated with affordable organization products you can find on Amazon.
We came up with nine ideas inspired by popular Pinterest pins and trends to help you bring fresh organization tricks into your spring cleaning.
1. A set of canisters with on-trend chalkboard labels
Almost every trendy pantry on Pinterest or Instagram has one thing in common—clear, glass canisters that have practical and pretty labels. You can match that same look, and achieve organization nirvana in your own pantry with this five-piece set of canisters that come with vinyl chalkboard stickers and a piece of chalk. It’s satisfying to see your pantry essentials clearly in labeled containers. Plus they look a lot nicer than random cereal boxes and plastic bags of rice.
2. A magnetic strip for knives, tools, crafting supplies, and more
Many of today’s bloggers are going for magnetic everything to organize their metal tools and toys. Hang this best-selling 16-inch stainless steel magnetic strip on the wall, and you’ll have the perfect drop zone for knives, tools, crafting supplies, toy cars, bobby pins, or practically anything else that’s metal. You’ll save drawer space, and your essentials will always be within reach.
3. A stylish charging station and organizer in one
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
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.
5. A set of organizers to categorize fridge foods
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.
6. A collapsible bin that can store and be stored
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.
7. A cart for easy laundry sorting
Hyper-organized laundry rooms are a thing right now, and they’re more beautifully decorated than ever. Instead of treating your laundry room as an “afterthought space” in your home, bring in some ingenious organization methods that will not only be helpful, but will work in your decor, too. This rolling cart is amazing for laundry sorting—lights, colors, and delicates—and it’s certainly more sophisticated than an average laundry basket.
8. A rack to organize pans and pot lids
Cooking connoisseurs have come to rely on a must-have organizational item for their kitchens—the brilliant pan and pot lid organizer. If you have the space, you can proudly display your cookware right on your countertop. Or you just can keep your cabinets better organized than the precarious stacks you have now. This rack can be used vertically or horizontally.
9. A rolling cart to provide storage in unused gaps
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.
10. A cabinet door organizer for your bathroom supplies
You may be able to hide your bedroom clutter from your guests, but your bathroom is going to see a lot of traffic. The odds are good at least one or two will poke around in your cabinets, so impress them with your organizational skills. This over-door rack not only holds three hair tools, but has a shelf for things like extra hand soap and shampoo bottles.
