These Marie Kondo-Inspired Home Organizers Make Tidying Up a Joyful Experience
Drawers can easily become clutter-central if they’re not organized properly. The KonMari method teaches us to organize our drawers with boxes, which helps categorize and separate items so they’re easier to navigate. And if you really want to go all-in with Kondo’s system, she even has a special method for folding clothes into those boxes.
Shelves can get the best of us: With so much empty space, we continue to pile things up, without thinking about how it will look long term. Before we know it, everything from towels to bags to kids toys are crowding each other when they’re not being stored in the most optimal way. These baskets and shelving system can help you keep your closets neat and pile-free.
Shoe organizers help with more than just having all your shoes in one place: It will also help you see how many shoes you own. Kondo emphasizes that the best way to organize your things is in a way that helps you see them, so that you aren’t tempted to purchase items that are already similar to what you own.
The kitchen often seems to be people’s least favorite location on Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, but it doesn’t have to be for you! Get your kitchen chaos in order with these organizers. Use the dividers to sort through your kitchen drawers, the spice rack to finally get all those bottles of cumin in order, and the can rack for any kind of can or jar.
Paper and Mail Organizers
Paper: It ends up everywhere. We tend to stuff it in drawers, leave it scattered on tables, and never throw anything out. To help you declutter, Kondo suggests you take all your mail out of their envelopes, so you can easily see dates and senders. Use these sorters to organize any important documents or sentimental letters.
Christmas Decorations Organizers
If you’re someone who loves Christmas like Kondo does, these organizers will be essential for you. Since Christmas decorations can vary so much in size and are only used once a year, they often get stored sloppily in garages or closets. But even Christmas decor can be organized. Just use storage boxes with a clear panels, so you can see what you own and know exactly where your favorite Santa Claus ornament is at all times.
