3 Things a Pro Organizer Bought at Walmart for $50 That Can Be Used in Any Room
As a professional organizer, I often see people buy the wrong supplies to get organized. In most cases, someone brings home or orders an organizing product because it seems like it’ll corral their stuff, was on sale, or just looked cute. Inevitably, though, those bins, baskets, and “As Seen on TV” impulse buys become dust-collecting clutter in and of themselves. It kind of feels like a canon event — but one I’d like to try to intervene on.
The fix to this is simply shopping with more intention. An organizing product should be versatile enough to have multiple uses and flexibility to fit in a few different areas. This is especially important if you’re a renter and frequent mover like me. Being able to transition products from space to space, or around the house as your needs or habits change, saves you from the aforementioned unnecessary clutter, plus time and money.
The good thing is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to find good organizing products. I shopped at Walmart with just $50, and found items that are high-quality (another important factor) and amazingly adaptable. Check the products out below, along with ideas of what you can organize using them. The cost came out to be a little over budget, $2.66 to be exact, but they are worth it.
