The organizing bug has finally hit here after spending 8 weeks at home. This time has made my mind get a little more creative with home updates and ways to organize cabinets and clutter in different areas of our home. Truthfully, I am not the best decorator but I love a nice and neat home where everything has a place. I’m still trying to teach my husband that. 😉 With majority of us spending more time at home, I can imagine lots of you are working on the same projects and/or have organizing/updating on the to do list. I think there are little things that you can add here and there that will help make things more organized or feel like a put together home and I’m here with my favorites from Amazon!
A pretty drying rack will make your counter tops look and feel put together and functional. I’m one for less is more on the counter tops and while I run my dishwasher every single day these days, I also wash dishes that either didn’t fit or can’t go in the dishwasher.
Baskets also make clutter go away! I have baskets in almost every single room of our home. In the living room for random things, a basket for blankets, baskets hold toys in the playroom, a few baskets in our entry way used as decorative pieces. These foldable baskets are the latest ones I purchased to organize our linen closet. They are much bigger than I expected but I measured the area before ordering and they fit perfectly.
I’m slowly transferring our plastic containers over to glass. I have a set from years ago that I have loved and always wanted to add more. These glass containers are the most recent purchase and I love them! They do take a while for the tops to go on easily but they store really nicely in the refrigerator.
Our pots and pans cabinet has been a disaster for so long! There’s nothing functional about stacking pot and pans together and having the one you need somehow always end up on the bottom. I purchased this pot and pan organizer and so far it’s worked really well and keeps everything organized. I can finally see every pot and pan that I have!
Our medicine container was out of control for the longest time! When I cleaned it out at the beginning of the year, I had medicine in there from when we moved in 2017! I came across these organizers and they keep everything together and I can see what I have. Here is another similar option.
This curling iron and flat iron holder has decluttered my bathroom countertop in a huge way! I really love this thing. I can fit my curling iron and hair iron in it and love that they both no longer sit on my counter.
This striped storage basket now houses our extra sheets in the linen closet. It’s not super sturdy, so I wouldn’t recommend it for toys but it’s functional enough for a basket that’s not used a lot and it’s pretty!
This round seagrass tray sits on our kitchen counter top. It’s a nice way to display our utensils, olive oil and I keep a bowl with all of my essentials oils in there.
My love for these lazy Susan’s has grown over the last few months. We have this divided one in the fridge for the little guy’s snacks that are easily accessible and another one for all of his crayons, markers, paint, glue, scissors etc. This one sits in our spice cabinet and keeps all of our spices and oil bottles organized.
I updated our knife set to these a few months ago. The actual stand is skinner than normal which I love so it doesn’t take up a lot of space.
These phone holders are really functional! These are great if you like watching things on your phone and need to sit it down. While these don’t have the option to charge your phone while using them, I will be tryin these out that do!
What are some house organizing/updating projects you are working on? Have a great Wednesday!
