A question we get all the time is: Do I need organizational supplies in order to get and stay organized?
Our unwavering answer is YES; a hard, no-compromising yes.
BUT do you have to buy everything from The Container Store? No, absolutely not.
A lot of people think that in order to get organized, you have to splurge on organizational supplies, but this simply isn’t true. While you do need to be mindful of the old adage “You get what you pay for,” there is absolutely no need to break the bank in the name of organization.
With that said, you do need to invest in some type of supplies if you expect any space to hold its own when it comes to system creation. Here are a few options to consider:
Walmart now carries The Home Edit line
Target has their "Brightroom" line
Costco has a ton of in-store and online storage and organization options
The Dollar Tree has some good organization options
But BEFORE YOU BUY, be sure to purge, purge, purge! Never organize what you can discard, donate or recycle. Trust us - you’ll save time, space, energy, and money by doing the edit first!
