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.
