Despite going through a manic spring cleaning a few weeks ago, you might notice some clutter creeping back onto your counters, desks and formerly pristine shelves. Sometimes it just feels like no amount of tidying up can do the trick. That’s why we’re not afraid to ask for a little help from organizers and storage solutions. And honestly, discovering ways of storing clutter-prone items has indeed helped us keep our homes in order. One of the brands we rely on time and time again to aid us in managing our messes is Yamazaki. The sleek and unique innovators of organizational design have helped us outfit practically every room in our home with smart solutions.

So, you can’t blame our excitement when, while scrolling through West Elm’s site, we discovered yet another brilliant storage solution from Yamazaki. Enter the Tower Magnet Placemat Storage Holder: The slim, sturdy folder is, just as it sounds, magnetic on one side, so it can easily slide in that gap between your fridge and the wall. But it also can, and should, be stuck on other metal surfaces — think file cabinets, the backsides of trash cans, inside metal drawers… the possibilities are endless!

While the name does suggest the holder is meant for placemats specifically, it can stow loads of other different household items. Think about all those loose recipes, napkins, serving trays, coasters, and hot plates looking for a proper home. Or, if you plan on placing this in your home office or garage — manuals, documents, and even magazines. No matter what you do plan to place in it, you can rest assured it will hold up, even when filled. Constructed from steel and heavy-duty magnets, it’s sure to stay stuck. Plus, you can stick all sorts of magnets on top of it for a fun touch of decor.

The best thing about the Tower Magnet Holder is how much space it will create around the house. You’ll be surprised at how much room even placemats take up. Whether you roll them, fold them, or lay them flat, they wind up creating awkward gaps or leaving no space for anything else. Just imagine how you could fill that empty drawer!

I bet if you really look around your home, you’ll find loads of items occupying unnecessary real estate that could easily slip into one of these handy storage solutions and free up room for a cleaner, neater looking house.
