Tote bags and handbags with no interior pockets can become a jumbled mess, making it tough to grab your glasses, phone, keys or wallet in a hurry. This insert has 13 pockets, one of which is detachable, so you can organize all your belongings. The inserts come in 24 colors and several sizes from S-XL. And for new moms, they also make an insert specifically for diaper bags that fit two bottles.
What is the first step to decluttering your home?
The first step to decluttering your home is committing to the decision-making process, according to Murray. “Getting organized isn’t all about bins and color coding,” she says. “Items become clutter when decisions aren’t made. Keep or don’t keep? Donate or toss?” She advises her clients to consistently declutter their belongings over time — “one shelf at a time, one drawer at a time, one decision at a time.”
What are the best items to organize your home with?
Murray says these four items are among her most favorite creative solutions:
Coffee tables and ottomans with storage. These are ideal solutions for hiding pillows, blankets and household essentials you need access to but don’t necessarily want out in the open.
Magazine holders. “These have the flexibility to do much more than store magazines,” she says. “They can store papers and file folders vertically, gift-wrapping and cutting boards. They can also be placed in a pantry to hold foils and plastic wrap.”
Over-the-door shoe organizers. You can hang these in a playroom to hold dolls, action figures and toy cars or in a linen closet to stash medicine and toiletries, according to Murray. “In the winter you can store hats, gloves and scarves in each pouch, then switch them out with flip-flops and suntan lotion in summer,” she says.
Clear plastic containers. You can easily see what’s inside them, they blend in with most decor and you can reuse and repurpose them in other areas of the home, according to Murray.
