A couple of weeks ago, I shared my IKEA home decor must-haves. Seeing as IKEA's virtually synonymous with clever home organization solutions, I'd be remiss not to also share my faves in that category. It'd be like going to In-N-Out and not ordering a burger...

 

 

 

In today's post, I've rounded up my favorite home organization tools from IKEA!

 

 

 

 

1. Kvissle Wall Magazine Rack

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This little rack can do so much more than hold magazines.

We use these in our back entry.

 

 

They make for an easily accessible landing strip/short-term storage for mail and school newsletters.

 

Labels are like my Frank's Red Hot.  I put that sh*t on everything...

2. Skubb Boxes

 

 

 

 

These are the perfect modular solution for organizing any drawer.

We use them all over the house, including in my son's closet...

 

 See? Again with the labels.

 

 

 

 

toy drawers...

 

 

 


and the kitchen...

 

 

 3. Raskog Cart

 

 

 

 

 

 

This little cart is so versatile. It's an inexpensive way to add mobile storage to any room:

Here it is in our bathroom, which is in desperate need of a reno. The Raskog's been a great way to temporarily add storage in here without spending a lot of money.

 

 

 

 

 

4. Variera Knife Tray

 

 

 

 

If you've read my post on kitchen drawer organization, you'll know that I'm obsessed with keeping stuff off our counters. Even things normal people might consider counter staples, like a knife block.

 

Instead, we use a couple of these IKEA in-drawer knife holders.

 

 

They've since discontinued this exact design, but the Variera's similar.

 

 

 

 

 

5. Variera In-Drawer Spice Rack

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just like the knife block, a spice rack is unsightly clutter that doesn't do your counter any favors. The solution?  In-drawer spice rack inserts!

 

 

Don't have IKEA drawers and not sure if these will fit? You can get these adjustable in-drawer spice organizers on Amazon:

 

 Adjustable Drawer Organizer ($14.99).

6. Variera Plastic Bag Dispenser

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a simple and compact solution for storing plastic bags for repeat use. If you've managed to avoid plastic bags all together, these can be used to organize all sorts of other things, from cleaning supplies to wrapping paper:

These modular storage units are handy for narrow entryways:

They also make for versatile storage in almost any other room:
