One more closet item that has my attention, is the drop down rack that allows for maximizing vertical space.
Finally, when it comes to kitchen pantries, I don't know too many people that don't struggle with keeping it all visually pleasing. In a recent issue of Good Housekeeping, Jamie Lee Curtis shared her organizing tips for her pantry. She shares "I feel like packaging is bringing somebody else's design into my house." So she stores cereals, flour, sugar, and the like in clear containers with lids. This allows her to access her pantry without all of the label clutter. Ikea has some great storage solutions that work with idea in mind.
When it comes to getting organized for the year ahead, look for ways to motivate and inspire. Create a list of storage ideas you want to add to your own home, work on areas that feel visually cluttered, create a sense of calm in your hidden space. The benefit for you is a feeling of having "your ducks in a row" or readiness to tackle the challenges and opportunities of a new year. Here's to losing it!
