Looking to overhaul your home's organization strategy from the top down? Our new organization line of drawer organizers, bins, and more has you covered. Made from durable plastic, these containers can be used in your kitchen, bathroom, office, and craft room to keep things neat and tidy.
We've got options large and small, so everything from large containers of condiments and styling products, to smaller items like craft supplies or nail polish bottles will have a home. There are even organizers to help you get more storage space out of deep drawers, and produce bins to help you keep your food fresh for longer.
Below, check out all of the picks from The Spruce's new organization line.
iDesign + The Spruce 15 x 6-Inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
Put an end to cluttered drawers with these clear, low-profile organizers with four non-skid feet. The modular organizers can be stacked for even more organizational help to keep everything from your pantry cabinet to your bathroom closet neat and tidy.
These particular open-top drawer organizers are the perfect size for storing measuring cups, small appliances such as a hand mixer, or individual-sized bags of snacks. In the bathroom closet, we like it for blow dryers and curling irons. Or try them in your dresser drawers to keep socks, tanks and tees, and underwear in line. Every piece in the collection is made of strong, BPA-free plastic that can be hand washed with soap and water.
iDesign + The Spruce 9.75 x 3.25-Inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
Like our other drawer organizers, these slim containers 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. They're also small enough to fit several in a kitchen drawer to neatly hold your forks, knives, and spoons. In the bathroom, we like them for makeup brushes, tweezers, toothpaste, and other hard-to-store personal items.
iDesign + The Spruce 12 x 6-Inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
This larger drawer organizer is perfect if you need an easy way to make sure bulkier items have a home. Whether you want to keep your cooking utensils together, keep thank you notes and Post-its from sliding all over your desk or would like an easy way to sort makeup palettes, this pick can do it all.
iDesign + The Spruce 12.75 x 3.25-Inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
These long and slim organizers are the perfect length to nestle larger kitchen tools like tongs, spatulas, or whisks. Pair them with our other organizers (sold separately) to create a customized layout in all your kitchen drawers. You could also try them in the craft room to store ribbons, paints, paint brushes, and scissors.
iDesign + The Spruce 14.5 x 8-Inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
You could buy a fancy new fridge or you could make do with your perfectly good one and invest in a few different size fridge and freezer bins to seemingly double the size of your fridge for hundreds of dollars less. These deep bins help keep like items together—think yogurts, pudding cups, cheese sticks—to hold everything neat, tidy, and accessible.
The transparent walls make it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for as soon as you open the fridge. We also love that each piece has built in handles, so you can move it from the fridge to the counter and back again after a trip to the grocery store.
iDesign + The Spruce 14.5 x 4-Inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
A perfect partner to the wider containers above, this 4 x 4 x 14.5-inch bin offers many of the same advantages when it comes to organizing your fridge or freezer. It’s a clear storage container with handles that will work on any shelf in your fridge. We like this size for storing jars of spices, small bags of snacks, or fruits like lemons that can be piled on top of each other.
iDesign + The Spruce 8.3-in x 6.3-in Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
If you’re the type who likes to have a place for anything and everything in your fridge—the butter in the butter compartment, the cold cuts in the deli drawer—these are the containers for you. It has a removable divider to help keep your foods organized and separated and a lid so the bins are ready to stack. We suggest keeping like items together: say string cheese with individually wrapped cheese sticks or single packs of hummus with single packs of guac. The clear, BPA-free plastic keeps foods visible so you’ll never have to hunt high and low to find them.
iDesign + The Spruce 12 x 8-Inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
This bin is compact, with a single, removable divider and built in handles to make getting it in and out of your fridge easy. It works equally well in your fridge, freezer, or pantry—or truly anywhere you want to store items together to maximize your storage space. Plus, the relatively tall sides make this pick perfect for condiments or taller toiletry bottles that you want to keep standing up.
iDesign + The Spruce 14 x 6-Inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
Similar to the smaller bins above, this larger version will help you find just the right spot to store all the food in your fridge. It has two removable dividers to create three sections and a built-in handle (but no lid) making it easy to transport wherever it’s needed. It also does wonders in your pantry cabinets, separating bags of chips and cookies, nuts, and more.
iDesign + The Spruce Crisp Turntable With Handles
Anyone who has ever hunted for that elusive jar of mustard in an overly-packed fridge will appreciate this spinning turntable. At 11.41 x 4.41 inches, it won’t take up a lot of that coveted real estate, but the clear spinning container will hold like items—like condiments—together in one neat space in your fridge. We also like it for corralling yogurts, juice boxes, and cheese sticks.
Or, try it in your spice cabinet or on your counter with items that might drip or spill, such as oils or pepper mills. The built in handles means it’s easy to move from table to counter (or fridge) and back again.
iDesign + The Spruce Crisp Berry Bin
You’ll never accidentally let a pint of berries go bad in the back of your produce drawer again once you have the crisp berry bin on hand. It works in two ways: it has a double-layered design—an inner colander basket that lets water and other liquids strain through to the bottom of the bin—and a removable notched lid that allows for airflow to prevent excess moisture building up in the first place.
Plus it’s clear, so you can readily see what’s inside when you open the fridge to grab a quick snack. It works for all types of berries, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, and more.
iDesign + The Spruce Crisp Produce Bin
Not only will this produce bin keep your fridge better organized, it will also help your produce last longer, too. The stackable clear BPA-free plastic produce bin maximizes storage space in your fridge and prevents any water or sticky fruit runoff from accumulating on the bottom of your fridge’s produce bin.
In the container, the removable tray allows any moisture to drain off to the bottom and enhances airflow to prevent bacteria and mold growth. You can keep celery and carrot sticks, pepper slices, and broccoli stalks front and center in your fridge so they’re the first thing you see when you’re on the hunt for a snack.
iDesign + The Spruce Ariel Push Lock Sink Center
Your kitchen counters already have enough on them—the last thing you need is a slimy sponge sitting on the side of the sink. Give your sponge, scrubbers, and small dishwashing brushes a place to call home with this innovative organizer basket. It sticks to the inside of your sink with an integrated push lock suction cup that holds tight to any clean, smooth surface including tile, glass, fiberglass, and metal—no drilling or hardware needed.
With an open top and drainage holes on the bottom of the basket, wet items can dry quickly in between uses. You’ll want to buy at least two, because in addition to the kitchen sink, this organizer can also be used in the bathroom shower to hold razors, soap, and other toiletries.
iDesign + The Spruce 16 x 4.95-Inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
It may seem like you never have enough space, but organizing experts will tell you it’s likely that you haven’t maximized all your usable space yet. Take these low-profile, long and thin transparent bins that attach to the inside of a deep drawer via a transparent hanger. Voila! Now you have space for those odd-shaped items, like your hand mixer beaters, your turkey baster, and other kitchen utensils.
iDesign + The Spruce 9 x 5-Inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
These drawer organizers also work well in your desk drawer to tidy up office supplies like charging cords, rubber bands, envelopes, or stamps or can be used in your dresser drawers for socks, tights, or undies. At nine inches long, this one fits into tighter spaces than the larger version.
iDesign + The Spruce 5 x 4.96-Inch Plastic Multi-Use Insert Drawer Organizer
Even those who don’t think they have any space left can eek out a little more with the small Ariel Deep Drawer Organizer. Use it in the kitchen for items like Tupperware lids or cookie cutters, in the bathroom for makeup or cotton balls, or even near your front door as a handy place to store your keys.
What to Look for in Organizational Products
Organizational products are made in a number of materials, from metal to bamboo to acrylic. If you’re going to buy plastic, make sure that it is durable and BPA-free. Look for a quality product that will last for years to come, since none of us want to add any more cheap plastic to the landfill.
Modular and Stackable
It’s never a good idea to buy more storage products than you need. Look for modular organizational products that allow you to create a customized storage system that can be expanded as needed over time. Bonus points if they are stackable so that you can take advantage of vertical space in cabinets or inside the fridge.
Attention to Detail
When it comes to storage bins, little details count, like non-skid feet on drawer organizers to keep them from shifting and slipping; or built-in handles on stacking storage bins to make them easier to grip and move around.
What goes where when organizing kitchen cabinets?
There is no right way to organize kitchen cabinets, but it helps to divide your kitchen cabinetry into zones, and to organize your kitchen gear and food by category. So you might store coffee, tea, sugar, and honey on the bottom shelf of a cabinet above the coffeemaker or electric kettle for easy access, with mugs reachable on the second shelf, and teapots or cups and saucers on the top shelf that 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?
There are many ways to organize a messy house. Perhaps the most popular modern day 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, miscellany, and mementos. To organize clothes, for example, Kondo instructs people to take all of their clothes, shoes, and accessories out of drawers and closets and to pile them on the floor, then to sort them one by one, keeping items that “spark joy” and thanking and discarding the rest.
How do you clean plastic kitchen organizers?
Plastic kitchen organizers should be cleaned regularly to remove grease, food spills, crumbs, and dust. Most plastic kitchen organizers can be washed 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 restocking them and putting them away.
