    1. A copy of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up because the first step to a truly decluttered space is actually getting rid of stuff β€” and this will show you how.

    The cover with the title, the subtitle "the Japanese art of decluttering and organizing", and the author, Marie Kondo

    2. A Zero-Waste Box from Terracycle, where you (or you + your neighbors, or high school, or dorm) team up to buy a box that you then stuff with hard-to-recycle items, and mail back to Terracycle to be recycled.

    3. A set of dresser drawer dividers so you can keep all your clothes that spark joy folded in neat rows that easily adjust to the perfect widths.

    4. A set of three airtight mini snack containers β€” they'll 1) let you consolidate your open box and backup box into one spot *and* 2) keep all of those delicious snacks fresher for longer.

    5. Or a set of airtight ~Pop Containers~ that are a little less convenient to quickly open and pour, but come in a variety of sizes and types to fit whatever your particular pantry needs.

    The five-piece set: one tall large one, a midsize one 3/4 the size of the large, two medium ones each 1/2 the size of the large, and a small one 1/4 the size of the large

    6. A paper shredder because you'll finally be able to destroy that stockpile of credit card offers, old tax returns, and other stuff you (reasonably) didn't want to just chuck in the recycling.

    7. And a slim four-pocket expanding-file organizer perfect for holding onto the few papers that are actually important enough to keep around.

    8. Or if you need more than four pockets, a cascading file β€” it collapses for easy transport, then fans out to make each and every folder quick to access.

    The file cascaded to hang on a home office wall; there's a loop for the nail, six file folders, and a clear slot for something like a calendar print-out in the front

    9. A beanbag cover designed so kiddos can stuff it with all of their less-loved plush toys, turning the omnipresent, messy-looking pile into a comfy place to sit.

    10. A nail polish case that, after you sort through and toss any expired bottles or colors you don't want to keep, will file the ones you actually love into an orderly menu.

    A product photo showing before: a messy pile of lots of nail polish and after: all the nail polish bottles lined up neatly in the case's grid

    11. A bamboo monitor stand with two drawers perfect for storing all of the little desk supplies you need somewhere besides your desktop, but still within arm's reach.

    The monitor stand, which is 22 inches long, 10.6 inches deep, and 4.8 inches high; has two drawers, space underneath them for storage, and three slots in the top for organizing

    12. A pack of shoe doublers β€” the shoes you do decide to keep will take up half the space they would otherwise, freeing up extra shelf you can use for basically anything...including new shoes, of course.

    13. A set of baskets and clip-on labels to turn into a crap basket system: when you find something abandoned in a spot where it doesn't belong, drop it in that person's crap basket for them to put away later.

    14. A coupon wallet so you can toss the pile of of ads slowly accumulating on one corner of your kitchen counter, and just file away the deals you need for when you need 'em.

    A model's hand holds the small organizer, which Velcros over a cart handle and has several labeled dividers like "bakery", "beverages", and "canned"

    15. A set of space bags to compress your out-of-season clothes, extra bedding, or any other bulky fabric things you use often enough to keep, but not so often you want 'em out all the time.

    A large space bag with all the air sucked out of it, half-under the side of a bed

    16. A disc keeper so you can reduce the shelf space all those plastic DVD cases take up to just 2.8 inches, while still keeping all your favorite movies protected (and in alphabetical order, if you so choose).

    17. A cutlery tray that holds an entire set of forks, spoons, knives, and salad forks in half the space of a traditional organizer.

    A hand puts a fork away in the cutlery tray; it's deeper than the typical tray; has three deep slots for forks, spoons, and knives, and one divided shallower slot for salad forks and other small utensils

    18. A jewelry armoire disguised as a full-length mirror so your collection stays organized and easy to access but completely out of sight.

    19. A stackable drawer and shelf that makes even the furthest back corners of your under-sink cabinets completely accessible while maximizing every inch of their vertical space.

    20. A clip-in mop and broom organizer that can turn any 17-inch section of wall into an impeccable cleaning closet the moment you hang it up. You won't have to deal with the haphazard pile of mops, brooms, and dusters falling all over each other the moment you go to grab one ever again.

    A reviewer photo showing the organizer hung on a wall behind a door; it holds a broom, a dust mop, a wet wring-mop, a mini broom and dust pan, a swiffer duster, and the dog's leash

    21. Some photo boxes because even if you don't have the time or motivation to put all those developed pre-digital rolls from the into albums, you can at least transfer them to storage that looks nicer than those old shoeboxes.

    A grid of shelves, with two white photo boxes stacked on each shelf, each with a year in the metal label holder on front

    22. A comfortable ottoman because it lets you both prop your feet up after a long day and hide throws, games, books, and more in its handy storage compartment.

    BTW, after you get your cool new decluttering and organizing stuff in the mail, reuse that box to ship gently-used donations for FREE through Give Back Box.
