While a cluttered home may seem harmless enough, all that accumulated "stuff" can take a toll on our well-being after a while. After all, nothing can make you feel like you're living in your to-do list like a room full of laundry to put away, knickknacks to sort through, and messy counters to clean.
That's why choosing the right storage tools is the difference between a temporary stress fix and long-term bliss. Professionals organizers agree that giving all your belongings a rightful place—be it a jar, box, or basket—sets the foundation for a truly clean space. Once you give every little thing a home, it's easier to keep clutter from accumulating.
Here are the products that the pros turn to again and again with their clients. Nearly all of them do double duty, serving a valuable purpose across multiple rooms. So be sure to stock up, set up, and watch your entire space clean itself.
