Some guys like mess or don’t care about the building, unorganized pile of belongings in parts of their home. I am not one of those kinds of guys. I wouldn’t say that I have obsessive-compulsive disorder with cleaning or organizing (I don’t have labels all over my belongings or anything)… I just like to take advantage of great storage products to organize everything around me.
There are many different kinds of storage and organizing products that I have found to be cost effective, extremely useful, and super creative. A lot the popular home stores like Target, Walmart, and Gordmans have several simple storage boxes and cases to use.
Here are a couple storage products I’ve found highly useful for storage and organization:
Even if you don’t have many books, you can still use a bookcase for other belongings. In three weeks, I built a six-foot bookcase with multiple cubed storage units in it. Each unit has a height and width of about 12 inches, and is approximately 15 inches deep. It can be used to hold a variety of items including movies, books, pictures, and more. Benefits: You can make it out of recycled material, use it for anything, and recycle it when you’re done.
The Macy’s closet organizer meant to hang from a closet bar and hangs about three feet down from the bar. It has two parts: (1) a four-cubed clothed shelving unit of about 15 inches deep, and (2) a closet bar underneath the shelving unit to hang other clothes on. Benefits: It’s inexpensive, clears up your closet and keeps your clothes organized.
It’s not always easy to stay organized, but that’s why home stores and companies are around: to keep you organized and make your life easier. Remember that organizing is great and gives you more space to roam freely and comfortably.
