There's nothing wrong about buying too many books and there's definitely nothing wrong about buying extra supplies for your space. The only concern that you need to think about would be: where to place all of the things that you've been hoarding. Fortunately, there are items that you can use to help organize your space. Consider investing in any of these storage essentials—just remember not to buy too many of each:


These pieces are perfect choices for your kids' and utility rooms since they're easy to move around. Each box can accommodate many things and you can even group the items according to use.


Cubby-type or pigeon hole storage pieces give a sense of uniformity and an impression of a more permanent storage. Invest in quality pieces and a style that fits your home as you can use it to organize shoes and personal items.

A ladder can be used as rods for towels, quilts, scarves, and accessories. Explore the different uses of ladders—especially if you have a compact space.


Aside from using these for entertaining, trays make for an effortless organizing trick. You can place it by the foyer as catchall, in the kitchen to hold jars, and in the bathroom to hold bottles and decor.

 Hooks make use of vertical space in your home. This is very useful especially if you have limited floor space. Decorative hooks paired with accessories can work as wall decor.

Ribbons and Ties

Manage loose cords with ribbons and ties! If your closet is filled with sheets and pillowcovers, group similar items together using acid-free twine.

Jars and Canisters

These are perfect for the incredibly small items you have lying around the house. Mason jars and canisters provide see-thru, airtight storage. You don't always have to buy new jars, recycle the mason jars that you already have at home.
