Nifty Items Under P1,000 to Organize Your Life This New Year

Nifty Items Under P1,000 to Organize Your Life This New Year

There is something about the new year that propels us to restart anew. Maybe it is the inevitable fact that another 12 months have passed and you still have not accomplished your last year’s resolutions. Or maybe, it is the sense of hope for another shot at life despite the dread we are all stuck in. Whatever it is, a brand-new year is a great motivation to get you going on that resolutions list!

If, like us, you want to start this year with a little less chaos, then it is time to put your organizing skills to good use. No, you do not have to be as pro as Marie Kondo. All you need are patience, creativity, and these nifty yet affordable items to put order to your life.






Kitchen

Are your kitchen towels just lying on your counter, thus making an eye sore? Hooks will be your best friend. But instead of the boring wall fasteners shaped like a U or J, these pretty hooks from Ikea come in miniature chair designs. Talk about useful but decorative! A pack of three hooks costs P190.

If you are worried about those cartons of cereals and open packs of pasta or noodles, then you would love these transparent containers we found on Shopee. They are airtight and clear so you can easily spot whatever you need. Plus, they come in a range of sizes to suit your needs. These containers are priced between P70 and P165, a cheap investment to make your pantry neat and tidy!

Child’s Playroom

Having a child in the household means accepting mess as part of your routine. But you do not have to live in total chaos, thanks to nifty organizers like this cute wall storage from Ikea. Made of solid wood, this item can hold a few books and light toys and be fixed onto a wall at a child-friendly height. It is priced at P890 and is perfect to accentuate your little reader’s room!

Does your toddler have random things lying around but you cannot store them because you always have to take them out anyway? A hanging rack is your best bet. This FLISAT knob rack from Ikea can carry necklaces, ropes, backpacks, or your little tot’s fave hat! This sanity-saver will cost you only P350.






Bathroom

They say you can judge the cleanliness of one’s entire household by looking at their bathroom. So, while it is one of the smallest areas in your abode, your bathroom should never be taken for granted! Aside from keeping your tiles and toilet squeaky clean, making sure that your bathroom essentials are organized is also important. We found this three-tier bathroom shelf from Furniture Source that can keep your shampoo bottles, body wash, hand sanitizers, and other hygiene must-haves in order but within reach. It retails for P890.

If you like to keep your skincare in your bathroom, consider these gold vanity trays from Shopee. Priced between P691 and P789, these nifty organizers can keep your skincare corner clutter-free while maintaining that aesthetic look in your bathroom.

Workspace

For your workspace, we recommend this document letter tray from Furniture Source. Whether you prefer keeping it on your table for easy access to files or hiding it in your office drawer to maintain a clean desk, this tray will help tidy up your work-from-home set-up! You can score this for P795. If you do not want to expose your stuff, consider this file drawer for P995. It has three layers and can fit A4 documents!

For your cables and wires, this organizer from Our Home is a lifesaver. It comes with a lid to protect your wires from dust and is available at a pocket-friendly price of P475.

Wardrobe

Are you living with someone who has a bad habit of pulling out carefully folded clothes not from the top but underneath, and thus ruining the closet? If that someone is you, we are not judging. But to ease your burden, consider buying these wardrobe storage baskets from Shopee to better organize your clothes and intimate wear. You can assign one basket per category, like house shirts, outdoor tops, shorts, jeans, and so forth. This will help prevent you from rummaging through your clothes if you do not like what’s on top of the pile and keep your closet tidy. A basket ranges from P575 to P649.

If you have investment pieces like a suit or a gown that you have not worn for a long time, we recommend keeping them secure in a clothes dust cover like this one we found on Shopee. Put the garment inside, zip it up, and hang it in your closet until the next time you need it. Prices range from P20 to P65.
