1. Several medicine cabinet organizers for a spectacular before and after that will make your storage space 1000x more functional than it was before.
2. An acrylic makeup organizer so you can neatly display all the products you use and love the most, speeding up your entire routine.
3. A plastic bag dispenser that mounts directly to the inner cabinet door (or just the wall) of your pantry or laundry room, because keeping bags in a pile under the kitchen sink just isn't working anymore.
4. An over-door pocket organizer because knitting needles, cleaning products, your kiddo's doll collection, pantry snacks, and (of course) shoes aren't about to magically start neatly storing themselves.
5. A heavy duty closet shelving unit perfect if you have a large sweater or t-shirt collection that takes up more rod space than you'd prefer.
6. And a smaller set of single-row shoe cubbies used in a novel way: to confine those warm-but-bulky sweaters that would fill, like, half a drawer on their own.
7. A three-tier can rack designed to keep your cans rolling forward (so you always know when you're out of the basics you like to stock) — and that can totally be repurposed as extra shelving for the small stuff in your fridge.
8. A colorful carabiner to hold that new package of hair ties, saving them from slowly disappearing to who-knows-where.
9. And some magnetic tape to hold all your bobby pins and barettes in one place in your bathroom drawer.
10. A cube storage unit that can quickly make a living room covered in kid's toys look like a grown-up space again (thanks to the moveable, interchangeable bins).
11. And/or clear plastic totes the kids can keep in the playroom or their closets, and exchange whenever they want to play with something else.
12. A bathroom-cabinet drawer with a shelf on top, so you can stack on other organizing products OR just store your towels — all while taking advantage of every single inch of the cabinet's depth.
13. A set of gorgeous file folders to bring a little smile to your face even when you have to deal with boring adulting tasks, like taxes.
14. A two-tier Lazy Susan spice rack because it's perhaps the best way to find exactly what you're looking for when you have bottles of all different sizes and brands.
15. A hanging organizer that, besides just neatly storing your bags so you can see and easily access all of 'em, will also keep them relatively protected. Plus you can repurpose it to store whatever you need...
16. A large pegboard so it's exactly zero hassle to find the skillet, tool, or gadget you're looking for in your kitchen or garage.
17. A few clear bins for your cabinet or pantry — you'll finally be able to pull down the EVOO without accidentally knocking down the marshmallows and the mac and cheese in the process.
18. Some velvet non-slip hangers to save space (compared to the big plastic kind) and keep everything looking tidy, day-in and day-out.
19. A pack of food storage containers that thankfully contain ~themselves~ by interlocking into tidy, neat stacks.
21. A battery organizer with a tester so everyone in the house always knows which batteries are charged and ready, and can easily get to the little power providers when they need 'em.
22. A traditional paper planner — sometimes the physical act of writing things down is what you need to actually remember your to-dos.
