Spring cleaning isn't just about the cleaning part of things. It's also about the organizing. Once you've gone through that junk drawer (congrats!), you shouldn't just throw what's left back into the drawer. And once you've wiped down the inside of your cabinets, you shouldn't put everything back inside all willy nilly.
Here are 10 of our favorite organizing tools that'll help you stay neat and tidy through the next three seasons, starting with the prettiest dish organizer we've ever seen.
- YAMAZAKI Home Tosca Dish Riser, from $21: Here's one dish riser that's actually pretty enough to sit out on your counter or an open shelf. Of course, you can hide it in a cabinet and it'll make you smile every time you look inside.
- Pull Out Pantry Organizer, $60 at Organize It: Speaking of pretty, this copper two-shelf system sure is a looker. Fill it up with spices, boxes of pasta, cans, and anything else that needs some order. When you need something, you can pull out the shelf and it'll be easier to find.
- Reclaimed Wood Shelving + Brackets, from $88 at West Elm: If your shelves of drinking glasses, mugs, or bowls are getting out of control, consider hanging an extra shelf wherever you can to house the overflow. This one is a great option.
- Modular Kitchen Wall Storage Spice Rack With Cup Hooks, $20 at World Market: Another wall-hanging option, this organizer has room for spices, mugs, tea towels, and more.
- Small Milk Crate Wire Basket, $15 at Target: Fill this guy with your stacks of linens (tea towels, napkins, or microfiber clothes) and they'll finally stop falling over.
- Copper Wire Drawer Organizers, from $6 at The Container Store: Pick up any combination of the shapes or sizes that you need to fit your drawer. Then, get to organizing your silverware drawers and your junk drawer(s).
- VARIERA, $6 at IKEA: Toppling pot lids are a pesky problem in almost every single kitchen. This accordion-like rack can help.
- Anchor Hocking 3-Piece Glass Cracker Jar Canister Set, $18: Because every organized pantry starts with some legit canisters to hold things like flour, sugar, dried pasta, nuts, and more.
- Polder Yellow Corkscrew Dish Rack, $40 at Crate & Barrel: Don't just pile hand-washed dishes onto a dish towel to dry. This rack gives dishes the space they need to dry.
- Medium Modern Metal Hook, $5: Hang one (or three) of these up in the kitchen and you finally have a home for your pot holders. This way, they'll stop taking up valuable drawer or counter space.
