Sometimes it’s the simplest solutions that make all the difference in the world of organizing. And if it’s a storage gem that you can use anywhere? Even better. Leave it to IKEA to have the chicest, most versatile organizers for less than $1. Yes, you read that right!

IKEA’s plastic beige NOJIG organizer is the missing puzzle piece to your around-the-house storage needs. On sale now for only $0.99, the largest size is about 8 inches by 10 inches by 4 inches — tall enough for makeup, kitchen utensils, or a few hand towels, but compact enough to fit inside almost any drawer. With small, circular LEGO-esque embossed details on its sides, the NOJIG is the perfect mix of simple style and storage. 

Want some even better news? The bin comes in several other sizes for even less: a 6-inch-by-8-inch-by-2-inch version for $0.49; a 4-inch-by-8-inch-by-2-inch version for $0.39; and a 4-inch-by-4-inch-by-2-inch square version for only $0.29. The best part? The different sizes all fit inside one another, for an extra-organized drawer, shelf, or closet space.

Fill the bin with miscellaneous garage tools, office supplies, pantry snacks, or anything else small that needs corralling — whatever you fill it with, the light creamy beige color makes it easy to see what’s in it, and the plastic is super easy to clean. At such a steal of a price — snag five for less than $5 — you might just want to stock up while you can. After all, you can use them anywhere! And with more than 500 five-star reviews, what else could convince you?

In case you don’t live near an IKEA (or you want to skip out on the $10 delivery fee), don’t worry — certain styles of the bin are also available on Amazon for shipping right to your door. Get the longer NOJIG organizer, or a similar two-compartment style bin — both for under $7 each. Organizing has never looked so sleek!
