Must-Have Organizing Products

We all want an organized space, whether it's just a drawer or the entire house. Finding really useful organizing tools and containers can be almost impossible without having to seek out a specialized store or spending a fortune. But, there actually is a certain time of year when you can find all sorts of small-space organizing hacks, and they may even be on sale. It's back-to-school time!
Think about it. Back-to-School caters not only to elementary and high school students, but to college students as well. And college students are trying to fit as much of their stuff into a small dorm room as possible, so availability of organizing tools and containers is at an all-time high. You don't have to be a student to take advantage of the products and sales, so this is the time to stock up on all of those organizing tools and containers you'll need to get your space in tip-top shape stat. Here are 5 of my favorite organizing products:
1. Some of my favorite school products to use for organizing are pencil boxes. These boxes can be used for oh-so-much-more than pencils. You can fill them with arts and crafts supplies, seashells collected from the beach, extra printer ink cartridges, small lego kits, puzzle pieces, dominoes, toy sets, batteries, sewing kits, small lightbulbs, hot glue gun with sticks, and so much more.
2. A small drawer organizer is great for organizing a variety of things. It can serve as a makeup organizer (as featured here), or it can store batteries, condiment packages, kool-aid packages, thank you cards, or spare miscellaneous items.
3. A file holder has many uses other than papers and files. It can also be used to organize cutting boards (which I featured here), and those aluminum foil, wax paper, and cling wrap boxes. You can sit it on a shelf, the floor inside a cabinet, or even attach it to the interior of a cabinet door.
4. An over-the-door hanging shoe organizer is useful for way more than just shoes. You can also use it to organize cleaning supplies, food, gaming remotes, gloves and winter caps, shower items, and more. If the organizer is too long for where you want to hang it, just trim it to fit the space you need.
5. This belt hanger can also be used to organize ties, scarves, bras, panties, even tank tops (which I featured here), and of course belts. It only takes up one hanger space in the closet, so this is a great space saver.
BONUS: When you're done organizing all of your pencil boxes, don't forget to label them so you'll know what's inside each one. A label maker also comes in handy for labeling all of those switches in your house that you don't know which light or fan they go to. Now you'll know. You're welcome.

I truly hope you find some of these products helpful in your quest to organize your space. If so, I'd love for you to leave a comment below. What are some of your must-have organizers?
