Most people could benefit from a little extra organization in the home. I’m sure we all have that friend who is constantly looking for a lost pair of scissors or missing remote. Maybe this situation is common in your own home!
Thankfully, you’re not the only one—and as a result, there are a lot of great products out on the market that can help you make sure that not only is everything in its place, but the home looks organized and stylish as well.
Here are a few products, ranging in price from $5 to $449, so that no matter what your budget is, you too can have an organized, beautiful, and relaxing space to call home.
Bed Side Caddy
It’s easy to get in the habit of tossing remote controls, magazines, and pretty much anything that doesn’t have a set “home” on your nightstand. Sure, this can be convenient for easy access, but not after the junk piles up and you forget what’s even there!
If this sounds like you, it sounds like you could use a bedside caddy. It will keep all your odds and ends within arm’s reach, but in a much more organized way.
For instance, the IKEA Flort has large pocket perfectly sized for a tablet or small notebook, as well as four pockets for remotes and analog tools, and pockets where you can keep your pens and other trinkets!

Entry Way Organizer
The front entrance of a home often gets the same treatment as the nightstand, becoming a haven of unread mail, spare keys, flyers, and loose change.
You can eliminate some of chaos by investing in some sort of cabinet that lets you hide the clutter in it.
We love this wall-mounted mirror cabinet from Pottery Barn. Not only does it help in the organizational sense, but the mirror also reflects your home, making it look bigger.

Wall Mounted Organizer
There’s no reason to throw magazines, loose forms, and books on the floor or tables, making your home look like a paper hurricane hit it.
Invest in some wall organizers which can be hung in the office, or hidden behind doors so that you can easily access your favourite reading material or important legal documents, without it taking up precious real estate in your home.
Are your wall outlets a tangled mess of cords, with all your different electronics charging at the same time?
Not only is this unsightly, but it can also be dangerous!
This charging valet doubles as a storage unit for electronics, and also a charging bay. It’s stylish, practical, and can be fit into virtually any home (pun intended).
The above items are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to keeping your home organized! If you do a bit of shopping, you’ll be thrilled to see all the options out there for keeping your house tidy, organized, and most importantly, feeling like home.Written October 13, 2014 by
