Have you ever noticed that your entire life – from professional work to personal relationships – becomes more organised when your home and workplace is also neat and organised?

Tidying and organising has a synergistic effect – when you organise one aspect of your life, others often naturally fall into place. Keep your home neat and tidy, and your schedule and to-do list will often quickly follow.

Being organised isn’t just about having the right system in place; in many cases, it’s about having the right tools and products to make organising simple. In this guide, we’ll share five essential storage products that you can use to organise your life.

Desk organisers

Do you work from home? Whether you work from your home office frequently or just use your desk for reviewing documents and making notes, keeping your home office organised and tidy is essential for staying in control of your life.

We’ve previously shared that the best document organising strategy is to discard what you don’t need. For the documents that need to be kept, however, your best strategy is to store them inside a desk organiser or magazine file.

Shoe racks

Have you ever arrived home from work, opened your front door and walked into a messy hallway? Unsorted shoes can turn your home’s entranceway into an absolute mess, putting your mind in a messy state once you arrive home.

Clean up and simplify your hallway with a shoe rack big enough to sort and contain all of your favourite pairs. Shoe racks also encourage guests to be tidy; as they spot the rack, they’ll remember to remove and store their shoes.

Document boxes

From letters to bills, mail can easily accumulate over the course of the week, making your kitchen counter a cluttered and messy space. Document boxes let you organise your personal letter and financial notices with ease, freeing up countertop space.

As well as making organising your personal letters simple, document boxes are ideal for sorting business documents and notices. Keep your home workspace clutter-free and organised, making it easier for you to adopt an organised, productive attitude.

Magazine/paper racks

Got magazines and newspapers to store? Instead of tossing the newspaper onto the coffee table every morning, store your latest newspapers and magazines on a special magazine/paper rack to keep your reading material organised.

Magazine racks are great accessories for entertainers. Not only will your living room feel neat, tidy and organised – your guests will also have something to read the next time they visit for lunch, dinner or drinks.

Rattan baskets

From linens to laundry, rattan baskets are ideal for storing… well, anything. Hugely durable yet incredibly lightweight, rattan baskets are easy to carry around the home and ideal for storing laundry, linens, sports clothes or any other soft items.

Suited to the living room just as much as they are the bedroom or bathroom, rattan baskets are timeless and effortlessly stylish. If laundry seems to accumulate in your home all the time, a rattan basket could be all that’s required for clutter-free living.
