For your emergency essentials

An emergency kit is a must in every home. Keep yours organized by grouping different items into zippered bags. You may group it into: medicines, money, and emergency bandages, to name a few. 

For your big move

Are you moving into a new home? Be an efficient packer by sealing important documents and files inside zippered plastic bags. Doing this will keep your important documents free from dirt and dust.

For art materials

Scattered pens and clips make your side table or home office desk cluttered. Keep things in order by placing pens, clips, and other must-haves inside plastic bags. If it's not that heavy, you can hang them on a corkboard. It is also ideal to keep them inside drawers.

For your makeup and toiletries

Don't let your cosmetics take over your dresser! You can keep your daily essentials inside resealable Ziploc bags to keep your space organized. Doing this makes it easier for you to locate the things you need as well.

For small toys and essentials

To organize your kids’ playroom, keep their small toys like toy cars and building blocks inside zippered plastic bags. Stack them properly on your shelves or drawers, to avoid being stepped on or misplaced.
