If you're anything like me, you used the last few weeks of summer to try and get organized for back to school: closets and dressers were outfitted with school clothes, pantries were stocked and labelled for lunches and snacks, and mudrooms were prepped for the impending change of seasons (if the cooler weather ever returns!). However, we're just a few weeks into the start of the academic year and already I can see things going all topsy-turvy.
Here are some family organizational products you need so that you can get everything in order and stay that way.
If you have a baby at home, then make a stop at Enfantino Boutique, where you'll discover a plethora of accessories that will make managing a household with a little that much easier. They sell all the major baby brands, including Skip Hop, who manufacture stylish space-saving bottle racks, grab and go bags, and more.
Linen Chest has a wide range of kitchen products that are perfect for the whole family. In addition to racks, baskets and bins for kitchen cabinets, we love the selection of items they carry for school lunches, like the three-piece lunch set from Trudeau. Forget all that haphazard Tupperware (which, I swear, gets messy all by itself) and streamline it down to this all-in-one set.
Wagonbags are my saviour at the grocery store and whenever I am running errands. They come in different colours so it's easy to keep things separated (fruits and veggies, meat, dairy, non-perishables, etc.), and they fit right into your shopping cart, meaning you can shop systematically way and then bring everything home in the same neat and orderly way.
Ares Cuisine is one of my favourite stores, like, ever, and I've purchased a whole slew of their handy storage items to keep my kitchen in tiptop shape. A few suggestions: their stackable square glass jars, which are ideal for dry items in your pantry, their stadium shelves (so you can really optimize on space), and their InterDesign drawer spacers.
Labels make everything easier. Professional organizers always preach: Everything should have a home, and with labels, you can clearly define spaces in your kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms and closet. There's no more guesswork as to where things go when everything is labeled. Get beautiful labels via StickerYou.com.
