We love an organized home, but we also love our planet, so we launched a collection with iDesign on Earth Day 2022 that's made from 100 percent post-consumer, recycled plastic. All of the pieces are BPA-free, shatter-resistant, and transparent so you can easily see the contents. Getting organized and being environmentally conscious in the process has never been easier.
The Spruce by iDesign products come in three, four, five, and seven-piece solution sets. They feature sleek products with movable dividers for quick customization, plus integrated ledges and handles so you can quickly move them around your kitchen or home. The solution sets are available on Amazon, in several neutral colors so you can spruce up your home according to your style, and products from The Spruce's previous collection with iDesign are still available at Lowe's.
Below, all of the products in The Spruce's organization line to cut down on clutter in your home.
Best for Beginners: The Spruce by iDesign 4-Piece Plastic Refrigerator Organizer Bin Set with Lids, Clear/White
If you're looking to maximize space on the middle or top shelves of your fridge, The Spruce by iDesign 4-Piece Organizer Bin Set is for you. Even if you don't overhaul your whole appliance, organizing one or two shelves of your refrigerator will make a big difference.
The two small bins can hold fruit, snacks, pouches, and more. Stack them on your top shelf to utilize vertical space, or place them on your middle shelf for easy visibility of healthy snack options. The two larger bins will make use of the entire depth of your fridge, so no expired items get stuck in the back or forgotten about. Fill these bins with produce or single-serve yogurt cups, and place them on a middle shelf of your fridge for easy and drawer-like access. The handles make these super easy to slide in and out, plus you can shop the bins in three different colors.
Best for Small Fridge: The Spruce by iDesign 3-Piece Plastic Refrigerator Organizer Bin Set with Lids, Clear/White
If you live in a small space, you know how important it is to maximize every inch of real estate—including your shelves, bins, and drawers in your refrigerator. The Spruce by iDesign 3-Piece Organizer Bin Set helps you do just that. It comes with a berry bin that includes a removable basket insert, designed to strain the water from your fresh blueberries or grapes so your produce stays fresh.
Another small bin helps keep larger produce visible and accessible, while the larger divided bin is excellent for storing pre-cut fruit, snacks, or yogurts and jams. The two dividers are removable, so you customize this large bin to your needs. At a depth of 16 inches, it will also keep those back-of-the-fridge items accessible.
Best for Standard Fridge: The Spruce by iDesign 5-Piece Plastic Refrigerator Organizer Bin Set with Lids, Clear/White
The Spruce by iDesign 5-Piece Organizer Bin Set comes with everything you need to organize a standard-sized fridge for everyday use, and it might even make restocking your fridge an activity you look forward to. The berry bin will keep your produce fresh, while the two small containers are the perfect home for cut-up veggies or hummus cups that you can easily grab for a quick and healthy afternoon snack.
The large divider bin is deep enough to help you reach those back-of-the-fridge items, and the customizable dividers mean you can adjust the sections based on your needs—perhaps, some weeks it's filled with pudding and sweet spreads, while other weeks it's stacked with cheeses or grab-and-go items. The small divider bin has the same customizable feature and is a great size for kid-sized snacks and pre-cut fruit.
Best for Large Fridge: The Spruce by iDesign 7-Piece Plastic Refrigerator Organizer Bin Set with Lids, Clear/White
A large fridge shared amongst multiple people or family members can be hard to keep organized. The Spruce by iDesign 7-Piece Organizer Bin Set will help you keep things in line, though, and find ingredients for snacks or meals with total ease. It comes with everything you need to live your best organized life, and with multiple bin sizes, you can customize you fridge's organization based on you and your family's needs.
This set comes with a crisp berry bin to keep your produce fresh, and two small bins for healthy snacks and pre-cut fruit or veggies. It also comes with a deep bin, as well as a small bin with removable dividers so that you can customize and adjust the sections for your evolving needs. What really takes this seven-piece set to the next level are the egg bin and beverage bin. The egg bin holds 18 eggs, while the beverage bin can hold nine large bottles for easy grab-and-go access.
Best for Large Cooking Utensils: iDesign + The Spruce 12 x 6-inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
Looking to declutter your kitchen counter, but still need a place for your larger cooking utensils—like a pair of tongs or spatulas? Look no further than the 12 x 6-inch Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer. This large drawer organizer is shallow enough to sit comfortably inside most kitchen drawers, and wide enough to hold several items together in one container. It's also easy to wipe down if you tend to make a mess while cooking.
In addition to kitchen use, this organizer is perfectly sized to keep stationery from sliding in your desk drawer or makeup palettes together in your vanity. You can make it work in almost any room of your house that could look and feel more organized.
Best for Office Supplies: iDesign + The Spruce Linus Drawer Organizer
Like our other drawer organizers, the Linus Drawer Organizers have non-stick feet and are stackable. They're a great pick for desk drawers, since they're the perfect length to hold markers, highlighters, pens, and more. Place them in a row from left to right, front to back, or both to create your own Tetris block of office supplies. If your desk drawer is already perfectly organized, you could also opt to use these in other cluttered spots in your home.
These dividers are small enough to fit in a kitchen drawer to neatly hold your forks, knives, and spoons. In the bathroom, they can work to house makeup brushes, tweezers, toothpaste, and other hard-to-store personal items.
Best for Bathroom: iDesign + The Spruce 12.75 x 3.25-inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
These Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizers are a few inches deeper, making them an excellent choice for deep, awkward bathroom drawers. Line up cotton rounds, toothpaste, razors, and more to create an organized and optimal bathroom oasis. You could even use them to house a bottle or two of your most-used hair products to keep dry shampoo bottles from sliding around when you open and close your drawer.
These long and slim organizers are also the perfect length to nestle larger kitchen tools like tongs, spatulas, and whisks. Pair them with our other organizers (sold separately) to create a customized layout in all of your drawers. In addition to kitchen and bathroom use, you could also try them in the craft room to store ribbons, paints, paintbrushes, and scissors.
Best Multipurpose: iDesign + The Spruce 14.5 x 8-inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
An organizer's favorite, this 8-inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer can do it all. Use these deep bins in your refrigerator to help keep like items together like yogurts, pudding cups, or cheese sticks, or in your pantry to line up pasta boxes or individual bags of chips. You can also use them under the sink to keep cleaning supplies accessible or in a closet to hold extra household items like lightbulbs, extension cords, or toilet paper.
The transparent walls make it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for, and we also love that each piece has built-in handles so you can move the product from shelf to shelf with ease. Grab a few of these for use in your kitchen, bathroom, and closet.
Best for Grab-and-Go Items: iDesign + The Spruce Fridge+Freeze Binz 4 x 4 x 14.5-inch Deep Bin
You can use these Fridge+Freeze Deep Bins for just about anything— from storing sponges, garbage bags, or round cleaning bottles under the sink, to hand sanitizers and tissue packs in an entryway closet. Our favorite purpose for these deep bins is grab-and-go snack storage.
These four-inch wide bins are perfectly sized for storing any kind of small, individually-packed snack and are especially great for children's snacks—think, juice boxes, bags of Goldfish, and more. The handles make it easy for kids to slide the bin out of the cabinet and grab a snack on their own, helping them feel independent and learn the value of an organized pantry all at once. You can also use this bin in your refrigerator to store yogurt cups, sauces, jams, and more adult-like snacks.
Best for Fresh Produce: iDesign + The Spruce Crisp Berry Bin
Never again let a pint of berries go bad in the back of your produce drawer. Bring them to the front of your refrigerator in this double-layered Crisp Berry Bin so they're easy to grab when you're making your morning yogurt. This bin's inner colander basket lets water and other liquids strain through, so it's the perfect choice for berries, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, or any other food you routinely rinse before consuming.
A removable notched lid also allows for airflow to prevent excess moisture buildup so your foods will stay crisp, fresh, and snack-ready at a moment's notice. You can readily see what’s inside when you open your fridge, and the modular, stackable design means you can maximize the vertical storage space in your fridge by pairing several of these together for easy, visible fruit storage.
Best for Condiments: iDesign + The Spruce Crisp Turntable with Handles
Anyone who has hunted for that elusive jar of mustard in an overly-packed fridge will appreciate this spinning Crisp Turntable with Handles. At 11.41 x 4.41 inches, it doesn't take up a lot of coveted real estate in any space, but the clear spinning container holds related items, like condiments, together in one neat space.
The clear sides make it even more versatile and ready for use in a playroom to hold craft supplies like paint, crayons, and stickers, or under the sink in a small bathroom to house cleaning supplies or many bottles of hairspray and dry shampoo. Since it's see-through and easy to clean, you can also use the turntable in your spice cabinet or on your counter for items that might drip or spill such as oils or pepper mills. The built-in handles let you move it from table, to counter, to fridge, and back without hassle.
Best for Pantry: iDesign + The Spruce 12 x 8-inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
This 8-inch Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer is compact, and features a single, removable divider and built-in handles to easily insert and remove it from your fridge, pantry, or closet. This bin's relatively tall sides make it perfect for condiments that might topple over in more shallow bins of its kind.
Line your pantry shelf with three of these to store sweet, salty, and healthy snacks, or if you only keep a few snacks on hand, one bin will serve you well since it has three small sections in each container. The sections not only help keep different food categories organized, but also keep things like snack bags or condiments from toppling over when you slide them in and out of your cabinet or pantry.
Best for Jars and Sauces: iDesign + The Spruce 14 x 6-inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
Similar to the bins above, this 6-inch Multi-Use Drawer Organizer helps you find just the right spot to store all the food in your fridge or pantry. It's the perfect size for jars, sauces, and individual-sized snacks, or bags of nuts or dried fruit. Its two removable dividers create three sections so you can customize and organize your supplies as you like. The built-in handle makes it easy to pull down from a shelf and carry over to the kitchen table.
In addition to kitchen use, you could also use this organizer in an office space to separate different types of stationery or in a playroom to organize sketchpads and crayon boxes.
For a large refrigerator, opt for The Spruce by iDesign 7-Piece Organizer Bin Set which includes an egg bin, beverage holder, berry bin, two small bins, and two bins with removable dividers. Looking to dip your toe into organization? Go with The Spruce by iDesign 4-Piece Organizer Bin Set which contains two classic small bins and two large multipurpose containers for storing snacks, fruit, or even household items in rooms other than the kitchen.
What to Look for in The Spruce Organization Line
Organizational products come in a number of materials, from metal, to bamboo, to plastic. The design aesthetic of your home and your personal organization needs will help determine the material that's best for you. Plastic containers are great for housing food or other items you need to see on a regular basis. The Spruce's organization line with iDesign is made of 100% post-consumer recycled plastic, it's BPA-free, and it's durable. One product equals 50 landfill water bottles, so you can organize your home knowing that you're not only using a sturdy quality product, but also one that doesn't contribute to landfills.
Modular and Stackable Design
It’s never a good idea to buy more storage products than you need, and a smartly-designed product should help you cut down on clutter, not add to it. The Spruce's organization line includes modular products that allow you to create customized storage systems you can expand as needed. Many of the pieces are also stackable, so you can take advantage of vertical space in cabinets or inside the fridge. When creating the system that's right for you, place everyday grab-and-go items in the top or easily reachable bins, while lesser-used items can live in the bottom bins.
For storage bins, little details count. The Spruce's organization line has drawer inserts that include non-skid feet to keep them from shifting and slipping when you open and close drawers. Many of the stacking storage bins have built-in handles, as well, to make them easier to grip and move from your refrigerator to the counter and back to the fridge. The berry bins even have an insert that allows water to drain, so that your fruit stays fresh and doesn't sit in moisture.
How do you clean plastic kitchen organizers?
You should clean plastic kitchen organizers regularly to remove grease, food spills, crumbs, and dust. You can wash most plastic kitchen organizers using dish soap and water. Scrub away stubborn stains with baking soda and a bristle brush. Be sure to wipe plastic kitchen organizers completely dry before putting them away.
What goes where when organizing kitchen cabinets?
There is no right way to organize kitchen cabinets, but it helps to divide them into zones, and organize your kitchen gear and food by category. For easy access, you might store coffee, tea, sugar, and honey on the bottom shelf of a cabinet, above the coffee maker or electric kettle. Locate mugs on the second shelf, and leave the top shelf for teapots, cups, and saucers you use for guests. Keep dishes in the cabinet above the dishwasher to save time when unloading. Use lower cabinets for small appliances, pots and pans, baking equipment, and mixing bowls. Keep cleaning supplies under the sink, with the most-used items at the front.
How do you start organizing a messy house?
Let us count the ways! Perhaps the most popular modern approach comes from Japanese decluttering guru Marie Kondo, who has built a global brand based on her KonMari Method, which consists of sorting and tidying by category in a specific order: clothes, books, papers, and mementos. To organize clothes, for example, Kondo instructs people to remove all their clothes, shoes, and accessories from drawers and closets, and pile them on the floor; then, sort them, one by one, keeping items that “spark joy,” and thanking and discarding the rest.
