January’s Most Loved Organizational Tools

See how to utilize this month's best buys for all the spaces in your life.

For the first ever round of This Organized Home’s Organizational Best Buys of the Month, I have a range of different organizational solutions for all aspects of life and home. I love to recommend products that I have personally used, but also have provided some options for products that I would love to try. The products I link will be from websites that are easily accessible to most people (i.e. Amazon, Target, Walmart, The Container Store), but feel free to use them as inspiration for products that you might find in your local stores and area you live.

Let’s kick it off with one of my most loved spaces in any home, the kitchen. Here are two products that you need now!


Anyone can tell you that with cabinet space at an all high premium in the kitchen, you need to be able to have systems in place to make them functional and stylish. I love using lazy susans in cabinet spaces to allow for easy access to cumbersome objects. I have been able to utilize them for many areas of my kitchen like storing oils or even sprinkles for baking.

I personally love the look of the clear iDesign Linus Turntable Kitchen Organizer, but you can find other lazy susan option in different colors that can fit with any aesthetic. The best part is the iDesign turntable is durable and easy to clean which is a must for anything in the kitchen.

There cannot be anything more frustrating then searching for a lid to your food storage containers. These food container lid organizers make putting away containers a snap and it is now so easy to always be able to find the correct sized lid.

I love this one from YouCopia that allows you to utilize it for round and square lids, plus it has adjustable dividers to suit your needs. Another bonus is that it can easily fit into your cabinets and is a breeze to clean. It comes in multiple sizes to fit any space.


Pantry space is at a premium in most homes. Working within the space you have can be a challenge. When I was organizing my pantry, I wanted to be able to store canned goods in a way that would take up the least space, but would also be practical. Additionally, I wanted to make sure that I would be able to reach cans easily.

I love these ORG Mesh sliding Cabinet Baskets. There are some additional space saving options with the two tiered system. They are great to be able to pull out and see everything you have in one glance without the hassle of rummaging through a mass of cans. The design is compact so we were able to fit two into our pantry and utilize the space for additional food storage.

If you have a multitude of cans, try to separate them into distinct categories with labels (canned soups, canned vegetables, etc.) that make unloading groceries and looking for a specific product a snap. I highly recommend these!

A true cult favorite are the OXO Good Grips Food Storage Containers. I held off on these at first due to there higher price point, but when I saw some on sale at HomeGoods I had to try some out for myself to see what the hype was about.

Needless to say, I am hooked on them not only because of their classic design that seems to fit with all decor, but also because they do keep food fresh longer than other containers on the market. They are super easy to clean which is a must in any house with little fingers and pretty durable after being dropped on our tile floor more than once. You can get individual containers or sets of these to fit any of your needs.

I love to utilize them in the pantry for cereals, granola, and pastas. They are also a great space saver since you can remove the excess packaging from products and use them in stackable systems. Do yourself a favor and try one out.


As a household, we love to have sparkling and flavored waters in our beverage fridge. However, given the smaller space in this fridge, I was looking for a solution that make the fridge look put together without the hassle and fit the space constraints.

These refrigerator organization bins from Seseno are great solution. They are extremely durable and can be easily washed which is a must for me with any kitchen storage solution. Plus they are extremely versatile and can be used for so many things like canned goods, bathroom storage, and even for office supplies.

Eating healthy can be hard when we are all pressed for time. I found that even with fruits and vegetables in the house, most people were not reaching for them until we started preparing them.

I picked up some of these Fullstar storage containers that are an absolute bargain and come in so many different size combinations.

The clear containers make finding what you want easy and you can even go the extra mile with adding labels to your containers. I have not had any problems with these and have now replaced all my kitchen storage containers with them for a modern and sleek feel. You can put them in the dishwasher, microwave, freezer, and they are even leak proof. What more could you want then an organized fridge with functional storage solutions?


Let’s face it… mornings can be the most stressful time of the day. You have a million things to do all before your first cup of coffee and the last thing you need is to be searching for a pair of socks, let alone the no show nude pair that go with your shoes for that day! When I remodeled my closet, I wanted to make sure that I would be able to quickly see my clothing and accessories for the day and searched for a solution to the great sock problem.

I stumbled on Evelots Drawer Organizers and they have been amazing for this and organizing many other things throughout my home. I love that the organizers are completely customizable and can fit in any space. Plus the honeycomb design can stretch to fit cumbersome items and make your drawers look great.

You can also utilize these for organizing other items in your closet like belts, scarves, underwear, and even bathing suits. I would highly recommend these for any closet.

For anyone that is constantly trying to fit their clothing into drawer space, you need to try some drawer divider inserts. You can instantly change one large drawer space into customization spaces for all your needs in seconds. There are so many different kinds to choose from that can fit into your own design scheme, but I am a huge fan of the mDesign Adjustable Drawer Dividers in particular because they can be expanded to fit any drawer quickly. They also have foam at the ends of the insert to provide a snug fit as well as keep your furniture protected.

I love just having some of these ready to go for when I have another project that needs some organization to instantly make the perfect space in seconds. You would be surprised how versatile these are for organizing items in kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and vanity drawer. This is a must try!

Household/On the Go

If you are anything like me, then you are constantly on the go. One of the easiest things to get messy is my car. Putting solutions in place to keep your car a well oiled machine of cleanliness and comfort takes a little planning. A designated space in your car for trash disposal is a must, but you want something that can be stylish too. Feast your eyes on this car trash can by Yicheyiyou.

Not only does this system have a waterproof interior, but it also comes with disposable bags perfectly sized to the unit. I also like that it can be used as a storage solution for other things that you keep in your vehicle like sunglasses or tissues. Another bonus of this system that puts it above the rest on the market is that it has an LED light so that you can utilize the system even at night. The design is super sleek so it does not take up your vehicle real estate. For the bargain price, you can have multiple in both the back and front of your car.

Everyone has had that moment on Christmas or in the middle of your favorite show when you are in desperate need of a battery. Most people pull out a drawer of assorted things and if they are lucky can find the ones they need.

Now imagine having all your batteries in one concise area that is easy to move, wonderfully arranged, and wait for it… can tell you if the batteries have a charge left in them! You need one of these organizers by The Battery Organizer.

Now you can easily store your batteries in a drawer or closet and see when you are running low on supplies with the clear lid. Plus the battery tester that is included in the organizer is removable so you can easily test batteries from other locations (great for checking the battery life in smoke detectors).



Hope you enjoyed my favorite organizational products for the month of January. Look forward to some new products each month.
