8 Must Have Storage And Organization Items

Hanging Baskets

Shop Hanging Baskets

So who doesn’t like baskets? I have a basket for this, and a basket for that around my home. Hell I will make up a basket out of nothing at all sometimes!

It is getting pretty bad when you get to a point where you are creating your own baskets, out of things that were never meant to be baskets in the first place!

I have a way of getting busy and the next thing you know I have no room left around me. And my entire work area is a janked up mess!


So I either start throwing everything into whatever I can get it into, or start tunneling through my trailer like a prairie dog!

So instead of becoming like a prairie dog, I usually proceed to start throwing everything into whatever I can reasonably get it into. Thinking that later on I will put it away and get it better organized.

Nice thought huh? It’s amazing how life just gets ahead of us sometimes. And you just can’t ever seem to get caught back up.

So first on my list of favorite storage items is baskets. They are great in every room of your home and will help you organize almost anything! And the ones I have up above are especially awesome. Because, not only do they look good, but they are not going to take up any extra space.

Since they are hanging baskets, they will save you some extra space wherever you may be needing it.

Next on my list of favorite storage items would be the storage box. As shown below.

Shop Storage Boxes Now!

This is the perfect item for helping you get organized with the smaller items around your home.

It doesn’t matter if it’s earrings that you are needing to organize, or beads for project making, that seem to be everywhere.


This storage box will help you store away nice and neatly anything you may have going on around you. I have everything under the sun kept in mine most of the time.

Shop Thread Holders Now!

This thread holder is a must have for anyone who likes to sew. In the beginning of my sewing days I didn’t have one and I had thread going everywhere!

It was so hard to find what I was looking for, and hard to store it all away. Once I discovered the thread holder I was able to get my stuff a lot more organized. Which made me much happier and more willing to go into my craft room to start sewing.

Shop Pro Knitting Bag

Here is the pro case knitting bag in my list of favorite things to get yourself organized. They call it the knitting bag, but I use it for my crocheting bag, as well as my spare fabric bag.

And has it ever helped me get myself organized in that area of crafting. If you are an avid crafter, who likes to do crafts in many different areas, this is a must have. For at least one of your areas of crafts will be nice and organized!

Shop Storage Cabinets

So the above rolling storage cabinet for your craft supplies is definitely on my wish list. Talk about getting a person organized with their craft items!

I have been wanting to get one of these for a while now. So if you happen to know someone in your life who likes to do crafts, and you were trying to decide on what to get them for Christmas, here it is! The perfect Christmas present!


Shop Laptop Stands

The laptop stand is a favorite of mine because I am the type who likes to keep my laptop right in the living room area. Because I want it to be easy to use and easy to store, when It’s not being used. And because I am lazy sometimes and just don’t like to have to put it up anywhere!

Since I like keeping my laptop out in the open area of the living room. This laptop holder was perfect for me.

It’s nice looking and it gives my laptop a home in the living room. And it is easier to use it when I am sitting in my favorite chair.


And what is extra nice about it, is the fact that it is portable. So it’s also easy to take it with you to the bedroom or anywhere else in the house.

So if you know someone who has a laptop and they just have it laying around the living room, this would make the perfect Christmas present for them.

Shop Trunk Organizer

So the above item (trunk storage case) is one that has definitely helped me get my car back in order! My car can definitely get itself out of sorts really quick!

I don’t even know how it happens but one day it will be clean and the next it will be a hot mess! So if your car is anything like mine, getting itself unorganized at the drop of a hat, then you definitely will want to have this item.

Even if you don’t spend a lot of time in your car, what time you do spend in it I’m sure you would like it to be nice and organized when you do get into it.

So rather than your car being a hot mess, with you scrambling around, looking for things most of the time. You can get this trunk storage case, and keep your time in your car, a more organized and pleasant experience.
Shop Garage Storage Cabinets

So the above garage cabinet is another one that is definitely on my wish list! This thing would definitely get a person organized with all of their main tools and outside gear. While also looking very good.

So I probably won’t be getting this wish list item of mine in time for christmas. But I am sure that many of you know someone out there who would love it. And this thing would be an awesome Christmas present!


I am 47 and have 3 grown daughters. And I have 1 granddaughter who I am crazy about! I am a recovering heroin addict who has now been clean for over 7 years now. Well I should say clean from needles for that amount of time. I can’t say completely clean because my Dr’s had me on methadone pills for a while when I was first released from the hospital. I then self medicated myself and went to a Dr for a while for suboxone. Which I then used to get myself off of the methadone pills. I was paralyzed as a result of using needles. My Dr’s never thought that I would walk again with the amount of infection they had to remove from my spinal cord. Yet I am now walking! Unassisted even. I do not require a cane or anything to walk now, is what I mean by unassisted. I do better with a cane but I can actually do it without it. So I have been back to school and almost have my associates degree in general studies. I was focusing on going to school to be a drug and alcohol counselor. I have changed my mind on that now and I have been focusing on doing affiliate sales and working on my website. These projects that I have been doing for the last 4-5 years is what has been literally saving my life! And keeping me off of the drugs! I am trying to bring about some awareness concerning addiction and what can happen to a person if they use needles with my website. Though I changed my mind on working as a counselor I still want to try and help others out there who are still struggling with their addictions. So I hope that you will follow me either on my blog or my Facebook pages and help support getting addicts the help that they really need. Instead of the stereotype labels they get here in America as well as the criminal label they acquire when they cannot just quit their use of drugs or alcohol.
