For reference, discarding took about 4.5 months in my 1400 sq foot home and two storage sheds. I have started working on deep cleaning, upgrading necessary yet ugly items, and storage/organizing. I expect this to take another two months. I am watching "Clean My Space" and "Home Organizing by Alejandra.tv" channels on YouTube now to help with the process.

I am trying to keep in mind getting products out of original packaging, if possible, to limit exposure to constant advertising in my home. I am choosing to spend quite a bit on higher quality products that I love and expect to last many years. Fortunately, I have a budget that allows for some luxuries.


I started with my closet and these great baskets from the container store http://www.containerstore.com/s/whitewash-rattan-bins/d?productId=10037633&q=Large%20Rattan%20Bin%20Whitewash. The closet has a built in shoe organizer and I used my label maker to indicate what style shoes go on which shelf – heels, sandals, sneakers, flats and boots. I also labeled the shelf for each basket. Clothes hangers are all white. They used to be all kinds of colors, and I realized that white is more calming. I am now using these for my socks and undies since konmari folding did not quite work for me on those items http://www.amazon.com/MIU-COLOR-Collapsible-Underwear-Organizer/dp/B009A3HTXY. The folding works great for most of my other clothes. I am still pondering how to organize the nightstand drawers.


I bought a couple of 10" bamboo lazy susans for keeping my oils and vinegars organized in my cabinets. I bought some refrigerator organization units from InterDesign and the Rubbermaid FreshWorks Produce savers. I intend to get Oxo food storage containers for dry goods.
I upgraded to these measuring spoons http://www.amazon.com/Cuisipro-Stainless-Steel-Measuring-Spoon/dp/B00004SU1I and these measuring cups http://www.amazon.com/Sagler-Measuring-Piece-Heavy-duty-Stainless/dp/B00V5EFWTO.

When I was discarding in my kitchen I found I did not really love my dinnerware so I got this set http://www.amazon.com/Corelle-Coordinates-18-Piece-Dinnerware-Service/dp/B00R790CLY plus matching lunch sized plates. I love the simple clean lines and the durability of the product. I downsized from a 12 person setting to 6 and it is great.


Have not done much here yet. I don’t have much need for storage organization in the cabinets. Still considering what I want to do with the drawers. Right now the drawers are still organized with small cardboard boxes from Glossybox, a cut down cereal box, and an empty jigsaw puzzle box. I upgraded my plunger and brush to nice stainless steel containers, and got a toilet paper holder that matches them http://www.amazon.com/Home-Basics-Vented-Stainless-Toilet/dp/B00JB20IDW.


I replaced my bulky plastic basket with this http://www.amazon.com/Bajer-Design-Marketing-5234-Basket/dp/B0010KZCFC. It now hangs on a Command Hook next to the washer.


I have repacked the car kit and 72 hour emergency kits in these for my car and my son's car. ttp://www.amazon.com/TrunkCratePro-Best-Premium-Trunk-Organizer/dp/B01AHK0J9Y. We live in an area prone to natural disasters so I like to be prepared wherever we are. I bought a car trash container (http://www.amazon.com/Highland-1932600-Car-Trash-Keeper/dp/B0027QWNGO) and created a little kit in a ziplock bag in the glovebox with essentials. Also, found tissues in a round container that fits perfectly in the door cup holder. I also bought a set of matching reusable grocery bags (http://www.amazon.com/ReBagMe-Reusable-Grocery-Reinforced-Handles/dp/B00Y17OIR4) so I don’t have the mismatched set. Finally, I have these on order (http://www.amazon.com/Car-Hammer-Seatbelt-Emergency-Must-Have/dp/B00CB8WM2S). Not organization related, just something I have been thinking that I needed for safety.


I reassessed what is in my purse. I used a couple small cosmetics bags that I had on hand and now have many things I wished I had at various times. Everything is neatly organized and I know exactly what is in there and why I have it. Everything from safety pins, to pen and notebook (http://www.amazon.com/Marble-Composition-Books-Notebooks-Green/dp/B00WRDIS9I), to a tiny flashlight, a granola bar in case I am out and hungry, a tide stain remover pen, a tiny Band-Aid package, tiny measuring tape (http://www.amazon.com/Stanley-33-115-10-Foot-4-Inch-PowerLock/dp/B00009OYGH), my phone, my wallet, and my keys are always on the little hook. Not exactly Konmari minimalism, but those are all things that I wished I had at various times and I am happy that I will not be caught without again. It is a medium size purse, packed just right, with stuff easily accessible.

Home office

I have not done much there yet, but this drawer organizer is working pretty well http://www.amazon.com/Rolodex-Regeneration-Deep-Drawer-Organizer-21864/dp/B002JG48R4.

Command center

I am currently working on a “Command Center” to keep clutter off the kitchen counter. I have not purchased anything for that yet. I am writing down ideas, measuring, and considering products. http://thehappyhousie.porch.com/20-fabulous-command-centers-to-get-your-life-completely-organized/

Other random stuff:

I moved my CDs into a holder http://www.amazon.com/Case-Logic-DVDW-92-Capacity-Classic/dp/B00005ATMD and they now live on a Command Hook in my car. For movies I transferred them to these Sleeves http://www.amazon.com/Atlantic-74604729-Movie-Sleeves/dp/B002JR2V7C and they now live in a small drawer in my living room. I tossed the packaging because it was bulky and does not give me joy.

I am using these in my linen closet http://www.amazon.com/Honey-Can-Do-STO-02986-Nested-Woven-Esspresso. This box for my jewelry http://www.amazon.com/Black-Leather-Jewelry-Travel-Case/dp/B0006JCGUM.

Not related to organizing, but I am loving these brushes for getting tiny spaces clean. So much better than an old toothbrush. http://www.amazon.com/OXO-Good-Grips-Clean-Brush/dp/B003M8GMS6

If you made it this far, congrats. Something that I have noticed is that I can now shop with confidence, I can easily toss or donate the old unloved items, and I am organized enough to return those few items that don’t work as well as I hoped. My home feels much more open and inviting. I know where everything is and my clear vision is starting to come to fruition.

u/she_never_did · 4 pointsr/boardgames

I've worked at FLGSs for the better part of the last five years (minus some frictional unemployment after one went out of business) and I have a pretty ridiculous collection of games. I run demos (often with personal copies of games) at "my" store but I also attend a couple of other gaming events regularly and play games at home frequently as well. I keep a selection of my favorites in my car at all times in case I encounter a "gamergency." So I wanted to be able to carry a large number of games in a small amount of space permanently, without sacrificing organization or ease of setup.

So for the last year, I've been "tinying" my games. I get 6"x10"x3" boxes (such as pencils come in when shipped by the gross) for free from a previous employer, a school supply shop (they give them away to the public). You'd be surprised how much you can get in a box that size. Splendor, Carcassonne, and Catan all work really well in smaller boxes -- anything without a board. I used my printer/scanner to reduce the original box art and pasted it onto the smaller boxes, then covered them with clear contact paper for durability.

Ultra Pro card boxes are my best friend; I'm about to buy a half dozen more for some games I've recently acquired. I also use little divided plastic boxes from the dollar store a lot. I don't have a lot of pics on my phone right now but I've posted a link some examples below.

Also included in the album is a pic of the games that live in my trunk; the carrier is one of these: (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019HGI31U/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_TCJBxbBF51MGH). At 22x12x14, it's currently holding 22 games (plus expansions, some in original boxes but most not). I've got room for a few more small ones, too. I love that it has handles; laundry baskets and storage bins hurt my hands. (Tinied games are DENSE, thus my bin is deceptively heavy.)

Here you go!


Few other things I found while digging in my Amazon orders:

u/kevinwilly · 3 pointsr/BMW

I keep a small 1/4" socket set, flashlight, some zip ties and a roll of electrical tape, a few spare bulbs (they burn out one by one but come in packs of two, so I keep the extras handy), as well as a pair of jumper cables, a tie down strap (for securing things from sliding around), a pair of work gloves (in case I need to stop and help someone move or something on the way home), an extra pair of socks, tire pressure gauge, bottle opener, a couple pens, usb charger with cord, an extra quart of oil, sunglasses, wet wipes, napkins, and a few other things in my car. They make nice trunk organizer things like this http://www.amazon.com/Handy-Laundry-Trunk-Organizer-Black/dp/B011871YXA/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1465141137&sr=8-5&keywords=trunk+organizer

Those things are great. Everything you need, no sliding around, and if you need some space you can just lift it out and leave it at home. The USB charger and pens and some other small stuff live in the glove box, but all the tools and stuff stay in the trunk.

My list is probably pretty overkill, but I keep a similar stash in my other vehicles. The wife's wagon has a REALLY nice little storage compartment already, though. And my truck is a truck so it's got a LOT more tools and stuff in it. They all fit under the front and rear seats.

u/THEJinx · 2 pointsr/KonaEV

A cheap front only dashcam which works really well, like $35 on Amazon. Got interesting views as I evac'd during a fire.

Sunscreen for windshield, don't want a melty dash!

Safety belt adjuster thing because I'm a shrimp.

Hang bars for dry cleaning.. https://smile.amazon.com/IPELY-Universal-Vehicle-Headrest-Grocery/dp/B01FESXGSU/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?keywords=seat+back+hanger+hooks&qid=1573109491&sprefix=seat+back+hanger&sr=8-6

Organizer thingy for the back. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01DZ03PP8?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title

Various decals and such - Ravenclaw, USMC veteran, and a metallic "Improbability Drive" one that makes me laugh when I see it. Got those on Etsy.

New Amoeba Music "Peace Through Music" license plate frame straight from Amoeba.

I REALLY want a Tesla Tap so I can get that sweet sweet level 3 quick charge.

u/AlexTakeTwo · 1 pointr/subaruimpreza

I got a couple of different sizes of totes to use, that way they're easy to remove and store if I need more cargo space, or I can move them to the back seat, and so on.

For the stuff that always lives in the car, I got this velcro-bottomed tote and I keep one full of stuff, and the other folded flat behind it for grab-and-go. The velcro sticks REALLY well and it goes nowhere. Unfortunately this exact one seems discontinued, but there should be similar ones available.

For groceries and errands and such, I have this basket with handles. I usually keep this basket in the house, toss "things to go to the car" in it, then take it with me for errands. It stays in place pretty well, and I re-inforce that by using a small carabiner to clip it to one of the side rings in the cargo area. Great for dropping multiple grocery bags and shopping bags in to keep in one place, then carry inside in one trip.

And finally for the bigger things that don't fit in totes, I have these cargo blocks which store nicely in that first velcro tote, and then stick to the floor of the cargo area to hold larger boxes and items in place so they don't slide all over. (Had a set of these with a VW a number of years ago, they were the only thing I missed about that VW so I bought a set for my Impreza when I got it.)

u/mickeyflinn · 2 pointsr/television
u/jdi_nit · 2 pointsr/fordranger


It's a hair too big but it's flexible so I made it work. Just nice to have stuff in the pickup but keep it looking clean. Also put it behind passenger side, lol.

u/Tikker_G · 1 pointr/Jeep


yeah, they come as a pair. they're great. it was a late night impulse buy for $100 last fall, and I've been really pleased with them. carry my camping gear in them np. I wouldn't sling them like a backpack by any stretch, but for carrying stuff from the house out to the jeep (loaded) or just down from parking lot to a river/lake side camp site, they're awesome

u/iJeffwuh · 2 pointsr/XVcrosstrek

I got This for easy storage in the back. You can easily strap it to the side if you put the seats down. I like the compartments and the easiness of removing it. I currently put tarps in there. A basic took set, gloves, flashlights, etc. I just got the cheapest one I could find and was surprised by the quality. Probably could spend a few bucks more and get someone with extra features.

u/bertos97 · 3 pointsr/AutoDetailing

my gf bought me a car trunk organizer from amazon, it fits a lot of products and can be attached anywhere! for the price it's a great buy. i wouldnt carry it around with a lot of stuff in it as it gets heavy and feels like the bottom is gonna rip out but that's how it is with pretty much every large surface bag.


u/Jayp1306 · 2 pointsr/subaru


Very similar to this. This one just has a solid top as opposed to a net, and it is on an angle. But it works perfectly and I've yet to have a single causality lol

u/phuckduck · 1 pointr/FordExplorer

My '17 EX has the 2nd row buckets and came with the Ford floor liners and the grooves in them are deep enough for the gunk I bring into the vehicle. I normally buy Weathertech's, but I'm happy with what I have.

I don't recall if the third row has floor liners or not as I don't use the third row, so it's always stowed. I didn't get a cargo liner either, but I did get myself one of these, plus I have a square milk crate that I keep in the back, and the included cargo net is good at keeping things from falling out when I open the back.

u/HighHokie · 2 pointsr/TeslaModel3


Not what you are asking for. But I have bins like these that I bought and are great. They fold up when not in use, and I can easily pull them out of the car and set on a shelf (eg I go on a weekend trip so I can just pull all my work gear out in one go and throw it back in when I’m done).

u/austinalexan · 1 pointr/Honda

Yep here you go

Red Hound Auto 2 Cargo Hooks for Trunk Storage Compatible with Honda Accord 2008-2017 & Acura ILX 2013-2018 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074R8N4B8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_FS6RDbQ2PA7JE

Couple videos on YouTube show how to install. I just bolted it in without any rivets. It’s super nice. Also it works on the newest civics and accords. Description is outdated.

u/Kimington · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Have you checked out JACO Superior Products? They make the BEST products for car emergency kits:

1 - Auto first aid kit

2 - Good quality tire pressure gauge

3 - Portable tire inflator

4 - Mini battery jump starter

5 - Trunk organizer to keep everything in

u/mushxi · 1 pointr/CX5

Yes, the boxes were separate, but the pattern matched so I went with it. I put grocery bags, umbrellas, and an emergency kit in them. Kind of a pleather material, so I think I will be pretty durable.

trunk mat

trunk box

u/AnalogDan · 2 pointsr/cars

A high quality storage organizer for the trunk is always useful. I have this one and it's great. It can fold down to half size when you don't need all the space.


u/we_wuz_kangz_420 · 2 pointsr/cars


This with four circular off road lights. It's clean looking and has the smallest hit on mpg

I think pods are 100% soccer mom and look like coffins lol just my opinion

u/Rav_Love · 1 pointr/rav4club

I've had two of these organizers strapped against the back seats since August and really like them. Easy to load and unload using the included handles and they have lots of pockets and several different possible configurations.


I also added a cargo cover: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F697D4T/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And cargo mat: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00G2KOG8Y/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/miatatony · 1 pointr/FocusST

I definitely reccomend this, or something cheaper like this: https://www.amazon.com/Autoark-Multipurpose-Collapsible-Waterproof-AK-022/dp/B019OZUEQ6/ref=sr_1_7?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1518162995&sr=1-7&keywords=trunk+organizer

its not a focus ST specific mod or a performance mod but it's been by far the most useful car related item I've had. It's one of those things where you don't think you need it, but after you have one it's so useful you can't live without one.

u/foxbarrington · 2 pointsr/uberdrivers

I'd recommend making a checklist, something like:

  • Phone charger
  • Vacuum the seats and floors (love this guy)
  • Check/remove everything from all cupholders / seat backs / door pockets
  • Windex passenger windows
  • Clear out trunk (these are great )
  • Fill tank
u/phaserman · 4 pointsr/legaladvice

>So I was showing a car at work when I open up the trunk to show the customer how much total space they have there was a swastika made of the car blocksThat are typically used to hold your stuff in place while you drive

We bought a VW SUV recently, and I know exactly the blocks you are talking about. For everyone else - they are plastic cargo organizers with velcro on the bottom, that stick to the carpets, and you can arrange them however you want so your groceries or whatever won't slide around in the cargo area. They are very useful. Here is a picture of two of them:

Our car came with 4 of them, and it would be easy to form them in the shape of a swastika. I could easily see how this could be done accidentally too. But given the other information, it probably wasn't an accident.

u/raresteakplease · 1 pointr/WRX

Still if you need one
it's a bit floppier in person but when you put things in there it doesn't collapse. Kept my watermelon safe

u/WhooperMan · 1 pointr/rav4club

I bought one of these. Included straps and clips lock into RAVs cargo bed d-rings and keep it and load from sliding around. Bonus that grey /black color combination combination birch interior well.


u/zennadata · 2 pointsr/rav4club

Something like this can tie down so it doesn’t slide around using the cargo hooks. Since you want to keep those things in your vehicle all the time, it’s better to have something you can just move around in one when you need to have extra cargo area. There’s different options, some smaller.


u/Karrad · 2 pointsr/crv

i picked up one of these. it comes with tie downs as well to keep it in place. had it about a week and its really handy for thinks like groceries


u/919hornet · 1 pointr/doordash

Great question!

I have one of those cargo nets that are made for motorcycles. So it would be in the DD bag (if it fits), then cargo netted across the rear seat.

I posted above, a few links to some rigid foam trunk cargo organizers. I'm thinking about which one to get. Something like this:


I'd have to add some straps for it, but the bike has the rear seat and saddle bags now, so this should fit right over the saddle bags and sit on the seat.

u/irmikexp · 2 pointsr/XVcrosstrek

I use one of these. I bought it for $22 but it looks like they are out of stock right now

u/licecrispies · 1 pointr/deliverydrivers

This is the one I bought on Amazon. I like how it can be secured in place, so stuff doesn't go flying if I have to slam the brakes.

u/terriyak1 · 2 pointsr/Golf_R


I have this with only one of the two compartments open (the other is collapsed) tethered to a corner in my hatch with bungee cords. Have all the stuff I listed above organized in it along with other things like umbrellas, a collapsible jacket, reusable ikea bags, more bungee cords, pens, etc.

u/val319 · 3 pointsr/organizing

What about something like this. Trunkcratepro Collapsible Portable Multi Compartments Trunk Organizer, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ECMRFTA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_t9rUDbQD82DDA

u/Smitty_Oom · 1 pointr/cars

Storage organizer

The one I have is smaller and more basic than that, but it has velcro and a hook to keep it from sliding around and you can zip the top closed.

u/Crimson-Pig · 1 pointr/crv

I use an expandable cargo-crate paired with a pet barrier.

The cargo-crate allows me to store loose items, or things that might otherwise tumble and roll around in the car in. (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01ECMRFTA/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

The pet barrier allows me to attach small things as well as stack items higher up without worrying that it'll spill into the rear passenger area. (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0040Q8ZM0/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

I have a rear cargo-net as well, but I find that I rarely use it over the cargo-crate. (https://www.hondapartworld.com/cr-v-accessories/cr-v-interior/623_08L96-SWA-100)

u/KS-Tanker · 3 pointsr/KiaNiro

MIU COLOR Car Trunk Organizer - Foldable Cargo Trunk Organizer with Durable Cover Washable Storage with Reinforced Handles https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FLVE9DQ/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_shIXBbTXGA63C

This is an improved version, but lots of options are available.

u/showersnacks · 1 pointr/VEDC

I got it off amazon. It was about $24

u/rabad · 1 pointr/WRX

I use this trunk organizer to hold most of my stuff and I keep my hiking boots, climbing shoes, and approach shoes in a milk crate. I use another milk crate to hold all my cleaning/detailing supplies. With the trunk organizer and the two milk crates, I still have plenty of space for groceries/shopping bags or whatever else I might need to throw in the the trunk.

u/Cervantes7 · 1 pointr/ecoboostmustang

I've been using these. I use them to keep sweaters, hats, etc for my 16 convertible along with misc detailing supplies.

u/carrera4s · 2 pointsr/teslamotors

I have the same problem for the same use case. I plan on getting some velcro stickers and sticking them to the bottom of the items that I plan on storing there. Tire Air compressor, First Aid Kit, Sun Shade, etc. They also sell car storage containers with a velcro type of bottom to solve this exact problem.

This might also work: https://www.amazon.com/Multipurpose-Cargo-Organizer-Storage-Available/dp/B06VVPWSXM/

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Firefighting

I use a medium sized gym/duffle bag that we all got from my department for Christmas, but any large gym/duffle bag would do. Hardest part is getting all my bedding stuffed in the bitch plus my other stuff, so dont be afraid to go big. Part of the way I learned to not carry the kitchen sink in was to have a space in my trunk/back area of my SUV where I can stow stuff in a organized cubby ( like this one https://www.amazon.com/Drive-Auto-Products-Storage-Organizer/dp/B01F9IS2Y8/ref=zg_bs_318295011_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=3FK8S6WBYSVWQWM257B2)
And just run to my vehicle if I needed something extra but kept all the essentials in my bag.
