Home organizers come in so many different forms — drawer inserts, under-cabinet attachments, cord holders — their looks and functions are practically limitless. You can imagine the excitement here at AT when an editor discovers an invaluable new tool that promises to eliminate clutter almost instantly. Whether you need extra space in the kitchen, bathroom or bedroom, it’s thrilling to find something that works wherever you need it to. That can definitely be said for the star of this post: the Plate magnetic storage caddy from Yamazaki. As long as there’s a magnetic surface, you can put this multi-pocket holder to work.

Loyal AT readers will know how much we enjoy Yamazaki around here. The home organization brand couples minimalist design with storage solutions for small-space living, so how could we not? And the magnetic storage caddy possesses all the trademark Yamazaki product characteristics we know and love: compactness, versatility, and easy installation. “Sturdy and beautiful,” one reviewer wrote with regards to the caddy. “I especially like the cutout on the back of the item, which allows it to be magnetized to a surface that isn’t flat.”

Perhaps best placed in the laundry room, the caddy has three deep pockets to hold your cleaning essentials. Really, it’s great for holding any loose items you might have lying around and, in turn, for reducing clutter. When I take inventory of my own laundry rack, located above the washer and dryer, it can definitely do without some of the extra stain removers, lint rollers, and washcloths I’ve packed it with. Something like this storage caddy would be perfect, and customers appear to agree. “… overall it has been great to hold washing bags, an ironing pad, etc.” one of them shared.

Thanks to its magnetic backing, the storage caddy can be easily attached and detached from metal surfaces without the need for drilling. Additionally, you won’t have to worry about causing any damage to the washer or fridge upon removal. Keep in mind that this product can hold up to 4.4 lbs, so it’s really best for storing strictly lightweight items. In the kitchen, you can attach the caddy to the fridge to hold spices, snacks, menus and other things, but you get the point by now. When it comes to organization, the simplest solution is often the best one. You can always bet on Yamazaki to remind you of that.
