Happy (Organized) New Year!

Like many people, I set New Year's "intentions" (I prefer this term to "resolutions"). Always at the top of the list is "become more organized in my daily life". If this sounds familiar, this post is for you. Here's a roundup of some cool products and ideas that can help you get better control over your stuff in 2013.

These bright Lacquered Boxes from The Container Store come in three different sizes -- just right for storing your jewelry, holding your recipes, or color-coding your son's Legos!



Nothing's better than cozying up on the sofa with a new magazine and a cuddly throw . . . but where to keep those mags and blankets when not in use? Try these Felt Baskets from West Elm.

This red cart from Target was designed for a kid's room . . . but I could see it holding pantry goods in your kitchen or paper in your home office . . . wherever you could use a shot of color.

This idea is so simple yet so brilliant. Use an old file holder to organize and store your cutting boards!


I just love this Sticks Multi-Hook Rack from Umbra. A cool modern answer to the ongoing question: "Where do we put all these jackets?"


This photo is from Jill's own closet . . . no need to buy expensive jewelry holders when a simple hook rack will do the trick! Try a similar one from Ikea and corral your bracelets and necklaces all in one place.


For those of us who prefer to have our storage labeled, these cute-yet-modern containers from West Elm are the perfect addition to the kitchen.

Organize your household projects, blog ideas or client notes with dedicated clipboards!
 Find these colorful ones at a Target store near you.

Those of us with kids are always on the lookout for organized ways to display their prolific artwork. I love this idea of using the Dignitet curtain wire system from Ikea to create a wall gallery.

And who says a shower caddy has to stay in the shower? It also happens to make a great mini-giftwrap station -- keep your cards, tape, scissors, and gift wrap all in one place.
