As a professional organizer, I am always on the hunt to find stylish-yet-functional products that can help bring order to my clients’ homes. I was pleasantly surprised to find three options when I was shopping at my local Aldi with a budget of $25. If you are looking to organize your office, playroom, or storage space, you’ll want to check out each of these products which came out to just a little over $25 — by 95 cents, to be exact!

If you need to get your office supplies in order, the Huntington Home Decorative Box will work in any style of home with its neutral linen fabric-covered exterior and sophisticated brown faux-leather tab. I love that it stacks so that I can maximize storage space. I recommend using these boxes to store things like photos, cards, and infrequently used office supplies. The interior of this box is not quite wide enough to store standard printer-size paper so if you are looking for a similar alternative for paper storage, try the Bigso Marten Letter Box from The Container Store.

If you want to brighten up your child’s playroom, the Huntington Home Recycled Storage Bin is a beautiful option for storing toys. Available in clear, tinted green, or terracotta, this large bin will fit perfectly in the IKEA Kallax shelf unit or a Target Brightroom six-cube organizer and the handles make it easy for kids to carry. I recommend purchasing a few of these bins to keep color consistency across one row of the cube organizer or playroom shelf. Check out Container Store’s version of this storage bin if you are seeking some different color options.

I also found a great product for organizing seasonal storage items at Aldi: the Sterilite 54-quart gasket box. I always recommend using clear storage bins to easily see the contents inside. These clear bins also have latching handles and that extra seal comes in handy if storing in a basement or garage. If you want a slightly bigger size, check out the 66-quart one available at Target.
