Whether you’ve recently binged Netflix’s “The Home Edit,” moved into a new place, or have become downright frustrated with the lack of organization in your home, it may be time to stock up on some new storage essentials. The great news is, there are so many storage and organizational solutions to choose from that can match any budget, amount of space and design aesthetic. We’ve rounded up the 22 best destinations for shopping all-things storage and organization to get your entire home sparking joy in no time at all. 

Anthropology

If you’re seeking stylish, colorful storage and organizing gear, consider Anthropologie as your one-stop shop. The retailer’s storage baskets, shelving, hooks, bins, and more are sure to keep your home as beautiful as it will be organized. 

IKEA

Whether you’re looking to reorganize a closet, pantry, cabinets, or an entire room, IKEA has you covered with an array of affordable storage solutions. Shop online or in-store to get started on your journey to a clean, streamlined home at any budget. 

The Container Store

The Container Store is basically a mecca for organization aficionados. It’s home to exclusive collections from The Home Edit (you can even buy the pretty cursive labels Clea and Joanna use!) and Marie Kondo. But the item that’s always hovering near the top of The Container’s Store’s bestseller list? These $2 clear, stackable shoe bins, which professional organizers have been recommending for years as an easy way to organize far more than just shoes.

Macy’s

Macy’s offers a wide range of organizing and storage solutions in virtually every department. Many of the best items come from brands you can find elsewhere, but the retailer has frequent sales, so you won’t have to wait long to get a bargain on what you’re looking for. For example, you’ll definitely want to save this set of stackable storage containers to your wish list. 

Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters is an excellent source for stylish storage and organization products you’ll actually want to show off — a huge plus for small spaces, where you often don’t have a choice in the matter. For example, if your bedroom is short on closet space, place these pretty nesting baskets on a shelf to add extra storage and texture in one swoop.

Amazon

It won’t come as a shock that Amazon, too, has a massive selection of storage solutions, ranging from high-end makeup organizers to this cult-favorite rack for container lids. In fact, it’s hard to think of any type of organizer you can’t find on Amazon. But the online retailer shines brightest when it comes to cheap storage basics, like these wildly popular collapsible fabric storage cubes from their in-house brand.

Bed Bath & Beyond

It’s not hard to see why Bed Bath & Beyond is popular among college students and first-time renters; it’s a one-stop-shop for all the storage essentials you’ll need to make the most of any space, small or large. For example, these stackable storage drawers make the most of your under-the-bed storage space, which is prime real estate for storing anything from off-season clothes to extra bedding.

Wayfair

If you’re shopping for virtually anything home related, Wayfair offers plenty of options to choose from. That’s certainly the case when it comes to storage and organization. In fact, their selection is so huge, it’s helpful to have an idea of what you’re looking for before visiting the online retailer rather than simply browsing. That said, you can’t go wrong with these wire mesh bins that are great for pantry items, toiletries, art supplies, toys, cleaning supplies, and more. 

Walmart

Walmart is a great place to shop around for a deal on storage and organization products, especially since retailers like Macy’s, Target, and Amazon carry many of the same selections. Unsurprisingly, however, Walmart might just offer the lowest price of the bunch, as is currently the case with these endlessly versatile plastic storage drawers from Sterilite. 

OXO

How do we love OXO’s POP containers? Let us count the ways. They’re airtight and stackable, satisfyingly easy to open and close, and look downright gorgeous stacked on pantry shelves. For the uninitiated, the five-piece set is also a good place to start.

Target

Target’s selection of home storage containers and organizers is stellar. Their in-house brands Opalhouse and Threshold have lots of stylish baskets and bins, and their Room Essentials line is great for cheap basics. But when it comes to storage, Made By Design is kind of the Goldilocks: The products are simple and prioritize function, but they’re also well made and attractive in a clean, minimalistic way. For example, our projects editor loves these $5 plastic organizer bins that are marketed for the bathroom, but they come in handy pretty much everywhere. 

Open Spaces

Open Spaces specializes in minimalist storage solutions that are thoughtfully designed for both function and beauty. Take these popular felt storage bins, for example. They’re crafted of texture-rich, sturdy compressed felt that’s made from recycled plastic water bottles, with half-circle handles and optional wooden lids. While they’re not necessarily the cheapest bins out there, they’re practically guaranteed to spark joy for years to come. 

Yamazaki Home

For irrefutable proof that simplicity can be beautiful, look no further than Yamizaki Home. The Japanese Look no further than Yamizaki Home for products that are both simple and beautiful. The Japanese brand offers a wide range of storage solutions characterized by an elegant minimalism that lets their thoughtful design shine.

Serena & Lily 

Serena & Lily offers a wide selection of splurge-worthy baskets and bins that are perfect for out-in-the-open storage. One basket in particular stands above the rest: the cult-favorite La Jolla basket. This woven piece can be spotted all over Instagram, on Pinterest, and in the homes of design bloggers everywhere. And it’s not hard to see the appeal: It’s spacious, absolutely gorgeous, and has a lid to cover up whatever’s hiding inside.

HAY

Danish design team HAY can make literally anything fun, sexy, and impossibly cool including, as it turns out, storage solutions. Their candy-colored stackable crates are all over Instagram, and it’s not hard to see why people can’t seem to get enough. The crates have a simple look that feels industrial and minimalist; in fact, they’re not dissimilar to the plastic crates farmers use to tote produce to the market. Plus, the unexpected colors add lots of playful personality.

Overstock

Like Wayfair, Overstock has a massive selection of affordable storage and organization products, so it’s a good idea to have a plan before diving in so that you don’t get overwhelmed. For example, if The Home Edit inspired you to get your fridge organized but you’re not ready to splurge on bins and organizers from The Container Store, you can find lots of comparable (and much cheaper) alternatives here, including this popular 14-piece acrylic set.

The Home Depot

The Home Depot carries all sorts of storage and organization products, but unsurprisingly, the mega-retailer is particularly great if you’re looking for something heavy-duty. These stackable storage bins from their Husky Line, for example, are practically indestructible and can support up to 100 pounds. They’re perfect for storing heavy items that you need easy access to in the basement, shed, or garage.  

West Elm

West Elm’s selection of elegant storage and organization products is certainly full of eye candy. And while it’s possible to find cheaper alternatives to most of the pretty baskets and bins, their Jasper Wood Storage Collection really is worth the splurge. The smooth wooden bins come in various stackable shapes and sizes, so you can create a modular configuration that works for your needs. 

World Market

World Market is a great source for storage and organization products, especially if you’re looking for something eye-catching and unique. While the selection of basic storage items is surprisingly expansive, their globally sourced items make the collection stand out from the pack. Check out these airtight ceramic canisters, for example. Hand-painted with intricate black and ivory designs, they’ll look gorgeous on your kitchen counter holding loose-leaf tea, coffee, or anything else you want to keep handy. 

QVC

When you hear QVC, you probably think of TV. That’s understandable, but the shopping channel actually has a robust online presence, plus you can often see video demonstrations of how products work, which will help you make the most of them. Their selection of storage and organization products is full of hidden gems, like these sliding stainless steel trays that’ll help you actually use the space in the back of your cabinets.

HSN

HSN is another TV shopping channel whose website is basically a treasure trove of storage solutions. In addition to the basics you’ll find at most major retailers, their selection includes a special bin, basket, or organizer for just about anything you can think of, like this problem-solving stemware storage bin. It’s the kind of thing that’s incredibly useful but that you might not think to seek out on your own. 

The Citizenry 

Think of The Citizenry as World Market’s richer, more refined older sibling. Their site is packed with unique, hand-crafted goods from all around the world, including a gorgeous selection of handwoven baskets. They’re relatively expensive compared to the other options on this list, but we love that The Citizenry is committed to sustainable, Fair Trade business practices.
