Kims Top Organizing Products
As a Professional Organizer with over 8 years of experience, I have encountered ALL types of people and situations-from Hoarders to OCDers.
Many people gather ideas from Pinterest which is a great resource to a point. I would agree that we all want our spaces to look nice and pretty just like the pictures.
I have tried organizing spaces with pretty and expensive bins according to client’s wants and desires but end up using clear containers because they just work better.
Here are a few drawbacks of pretty organizing bins:
I know this may sound crazy but my favorite “Go To” bins are Clear Containers.
Most people would never think about using clear because in their mind they are
not pretty and seem boring. But in reality they look very streamlined, utilize space efficiently and very cost effective. THEY JUST WORK!! Promise :)
Shopping on-line or in-store can be very frustrating so I’m sharing pictures of a variety of clear containers that I use depending on the space. I hope you find them helpful. :)
My favorite and mostly used containers are The Container Store’s regular and men’s shoe boxes. They beat Dollar Store, Walmart, Target, Home Goods, and Home Depot’s shoe type boxes.
