The Skip Hop Forma Diaper Bag Backpack is exactly what we're looking for in a diaper bag. Special Projects Director, Alison Goldman, says: "This diaper bag has gone everywhere with my family for the past year-and-a-half-plus, and it both fits everything and stays organized." She also loves how comfortable it is to wear and how it's held up after being tossed around. "And one more important criteria: It's sleek and doesn't scream, 'diaper bag' or 'purse.'"

This PEHR bin just screams playtime — and it's the ideal storage bin for toys across all ages. It's made of a canvas material and decorated with colorful little pom-poms (one of the many reasons why we adore it). It's also just the right size — not too big or small.

This toddler-sized, sturdy bookshelf allows you to display kids' books with the covers facing forward so they can easily pick out their favorite reads. The multi-colored design is a bonus because it will complement most kids' room decor perfectly. It can hold a wide range of book types and sizes, too.

When you have creative little ones who enjoy arts and crafts, you'll need ways to keep all their things manageable and accessible. These medium-sized storage containers are ideal because they are clear, have a snap-tight latch, and come in a pack of 10 so organizing lots of arts and crafts supplies is not a problem.

How We Picked Our Winners

The Organization Awards is our guide to the best organizers of 2023. Apartment Therapy editors truly believe these 80 outstanding winners, across 10 categories, are the finest home organizing solutions around. To create this list, we focused on common clutter issues that often arise in everyday life, identified the best products to solve them, and then tested them to see which worked the best.

Here are some of the key things we looked for in an organizer.

  • Durability Is it sturdy and long-lasting? Will it withstand heat, water, or other factors, depending on where it is stored?
  • Availability — Can you easily access this item?
  • Affordability — Is it budget-friendly or worth the splurge?
  • Functionality — Does it serve its desired function or beyond that? Does it solve the organizing issue at hand?

The ultimate goal: Help get your space sorted and free of clutter. Above all, we know there’s no right or wrong way to organize your home, so whether you have 300 or 3,000 square feet of space, we hope this list of adored and approved organizers serves as the best starting point for getting you organized.
