Guest Post from Allie Kleinman, Professional Organizer:
As an organizing enthusiast (so much so that I’ve turned it into my career), I’m always on the hunt for the best products on the market to help streamline, simplify, and beautify your homes and lives and I love sharing my findings with all of my friends! Since Videndae is definitely a friend of mine, I wanted to share three of my all-time favorite, high-impact products for organizing the home.
For the Fashionista – Matching Hangers
Swapping out your mis-matched hangers for cohesive, uniform ones will do wonders for your closet. These hangers from The Container Store are my favorites! The non-slip velvet finish prevents clothes from sliding off the hanger and onto the floor and the slim design will help you maximize your valuable closet space. The hangers look sleek and orderly on their own without having to rearrange your clothing in any specific order (a big bonus). However, taking the time to coordinate your clothing (either by color, category, etc.) will significantly elevate the overall look and feel of your closet.
For the Makeup Enthusiast – Cosmetic Organizer
I could write an entire post on organizing your makeup and cosmetics (in fact – I have! Read it here). As a product junkie myself, I’m no stranger to the plethora of cosmetics that can pile up and the mess it can create. Get your essentials in order and save time during your A.M. routine with a cute clear case from Bed Bath & Beyond. They come in a variety of sizes so you can customize according to your needs, routine, and products. Depending on your preference, you can hide these organizers in a cabinet or display it on your vanity for a more accessible and polished look. If you have a lot of makeup (like me), this is the perfect organizer to house your everyday items.
For the Jet Setter – Jewelry Organizer
In my previous life as a Destination Marketing Specialist, travel was a big part of the job. Luckily, I’m a great packer (seriously, I know how to work a carry-on to fit two weeks’ worth of clothes). However, I always struggled to efficiently pack my jewelry and accessories (and a girl can’t leave home without her jewels). I tried using zip lock bags before eventually upgrading to a proper jewelry organizer. I recently found this one on Brit.co and think it’s perfect! Not only is it cute and fun to assemble, but its practical and durable design will keep your precious gems safe whether they’re packed in your suitcase or stowed away in that tote bag.
Which organizer is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below and if you’re in need of some organizing assistance, I’m offering 20% off in-person and virtual services for all Videndae readers. Please mention “Videndae” when inquiring!
