My Must-Have Items from The Container Store

I love organizational tools. It helps me feel more put together to know exactly where to put things when I’m cleaning up. Today, I wanted to share just a few of my must-have items from my favorite organization store, The Container Store®.

I love a good lazy susan because you can easily access everything. I use one of these in my laundry room to hold small cleaning supplies, like sponges and Febreze bottles. There’s another one in my pantry to store condiments.

This tote (together with the tray) is a great medicine box. It holds a lot but doesn’t take up much room. Plus, it’s easy to transport if you want to throw it in your car before heading out on a trip.

Marie Kondo Calm Desktop File

I try not to keep too many physical copies of things if I can help it. But we do still have a few, like our mortgage documents and some tax records. Things I need to keep for a while, at least. To ensure they’re organized and easy to access, I wanted a file box of some sort. Since we don’t have too much to file, this desktop file is the perfect size. Plus, it looks pretty great!

Grey Wrap & Tote Organizer

I used to just keep all our wrapping paper and gift bags in a closet but kept losing things or forgetting what we had. This has been a game-changer. Everything I need to wrap presents is in one place, and I can easily store it out of the way when I don’t need it.

White 3-Tier Rolling Cart

I can’t say enough good things about this cart. I bought it for the nursery to store things I need to reach quickly, like diapers, lotions, burp cloths, and nursing supplies. Once it’s no longer needed in the nursery, I can use it to organize craft supplies, homeschool supplies, or a dozen other things.

When I was reorganizing my linen closet, I quickly realized that some items (namely hand towels and sheets) took up a lot of space and tended to look messy quickly. I got a few of these baskets for those items, and it has made it so much easier to keep the closet clean and organized.
