The 10 Best IKEA Products for Getting Organized in the New Year
Let’s face it, after a year like 2020—coupled with holiday season stress—parts of your household probably feel like they’re unraveling. Your kitchen? Likely jammed with seasonal baking essentials. Your dining room/office/craft space? Probably cluttered with paperwork and art projects. Your living room? A chaotic scene of throws, electronics, and games strewn about.
While a gut reno or total room overhaul may be the dream, these are major, often super pricey, endeavors. Organization, however, is a much more manageable, cost-effective focus for the new year if you find the right solutions for every room of your home. And right now, IKEA’s new arrivals section is chock-full of these kinds of finds. Here are my top ten picks, starting at a mere $1.49.
