Guest Picks: 20 Accessories to Organize Your Life

It’s recorded, spring has arrived! In my home spring means organizing. This is the time of year that I handle our unkept cabinets, wash out the door and sift through the junk drawer. While all these jobs can seem overwhelming, I secretly adore it and breath a sigh of relief when everything’s in its appropriate location.

To help you get a jump start on your spring cleaning, I’ve scoured some online resources and gathered my favorite home accessories. These products will include organization to your home and life and some will even add a nice design element also.

Metal Tipped Coat Rack – $199

If you live in a little area and don’t have a coat closet, a coat hanger is a nice alternative. There are many styles to choose from that will bring form and function into your room.

Cabinet Organizer – $5.95

Spice cabinets can be among the most untidy spaces in a home. By adding a simple cupboard organizer, such as the one displayed here, you are able to display items of varying heights and maintain everything in view.


TJUSIG Bench with shoe storage – black – IKEA

Closets can go from clean. Tip: Try adding a very simple bench inside the cupboard for storage. I’ve got this particular one in my coat cupboard and it’s made all the difference. Rather than shoes piling on the ground and never being able to find a matching pair when we had been running from the home, they’re neatly set on the rack and always in view once we want them.

TPS chartreuse file cabinet – $159

Maintaining paperwork out of getting out of hand is a common request of the unorganized. I propose adding a nice filing drawer in which you start your mail. Bills and other important documents become registered instantly, things to throw go straight to the trash.


Komplement Storage with Compartments – $20

Drawer organizers are perfect for places where you are storing small items. Use them and panties storage in children’s rooms or jewellery storage to you.


1L Weck Jar – $14

If you have open shelving in your kitchen contemplate setting pastas, cereals and grains in more attractive canisters, such as the ones shown here. They will keep your shelves from looking cluttered and will keep your food fresh longer.

Placing a simple square lacquered tray in your entryway table can keep paints, keys and mobile phones directly where you left them.

Lacquer Jewelry Tree – $29

It’s pretty much time to pack off the heavy sweaters. Using a clear storage container, such as those in The Container Store, will keep your sweaters in opinion and free of dust until autumn.


Bjärnum Hook Р$4.99

Including a simple hook into the inside of your coat cupboard is an easy way to get kids to hang their own coats. No children in the home? It’s also a great solution for storing the dog leash.

Modern Baskets – $169

I love looking through magazines as much as the next man, but I really don’t like the expression of piles on bedside tables. This modern rack will keep your glossy collection in check and show off your own favorites.


Wire 3+3 Organizer – $59.95

Among the easiest ways to add immediate organization to your mudroom would be to install a cubby unit. The one shown here’s a place to store hats, gloves and gloves, but my favorite feature would be the hooks for hanging coats and bags.

OFFI Perf Boxes – $399

Look at going vertical with your storage. If you want a lot of storage but don’t have a great deal of room, a unit such as the one shown here’s the perfect alternative.
