Storage isn’t only about placing everything in boxes and shelves—there are a lot of small organization aids that you probably wouldn’t even think you needed until you actually have them. Here are a few that can make you life a little bit easier:

Fridge organizer bins

Price available upon request, Interdesign at Wilcon Depot


You’ve probably seen those gloriously clean refrigerators with items organized in such a way that you can see everything. You can now do exactly that with these bins by Interdesign, which are available in different sizes.

Whether you own a desktop or a laptop computer, wires can be an annoying mess. Keep everything neat and avoid tripping on cables with this simple silicone cable organizer you can easily stick to the side of your table.

Kitchen towel holder


Price available upon request, Interdesign at Wilcon

While you probably have hooks in your kitchen for towels, there always seems to be a need for an extra rod. This towel holder easily hangs from your cabinets, which makes it very easy to transfer just in case!

PP 4-row storage drawer

Undersink organizer

Don’t reduce the area beneath your sink into a tambakan. Instead, turn it into an efficient storage area with an organizer that won’t get in the way of your sink’s pipes.

Undershelf basket

This basket can be used anywhere you have a shelving system—from your kitchen, to your home office, to your bedroom! Simply hang it from your bottom-most shelf for extra storage.
