Best Elfa system

I have had many of you ask about home organization ideas for your closet, playroom and well everywhere! I am going to start with one of my favorite organization systems because it can be used a ton of places (and we do). It’s called the ELFA Start-A-Stack from The Container Store. I know not everyone has a Container Store but this one is worth shipping because it’s that useful. The first place I purchased this for was my office, I knew I had a white desk and I wanted something about that same size that I could use for storage. The great thing is you can buy an inexpensive white top ($14.25) to then allow things to sit on top and now it’s where my printer sits.

The second place we use this set is in both the kids closets (to be honest they both have 2!) We have a very typical builder set up for kids closets where it’s a double door and two sides that are deep but hard to get to.

This Elfa Start-A-Stack fits PERFECTLY in this dead area giving us two dressers worth of storage. One of my favorite hacks (which I also used for my best friends house as well) is kids shoes get thrown in one of the deep drawers. This way you don’t have to worry about them on a rack or fitting on a door everything is there just go pull out a pair!

Another great accessory for this system is the Clear Divided Drawer Organizer ($5.25)  for the top narrow drawer if you are using for an office or playroom this is a great place for pens and accessories. When we used this in the pre-teen bedroom this is where we placed her jewelry.

As you can see these Elfa Start-A-Stack systems have a million uses and GREAT thing is they are 25% off now through end of October so get organizing!! They also come in platinum and clear bins so you can customize the look for your space.

Also keep in mind if you are using this to help organize a play room two of the medium sized white plastic storage bins fit in a drawer. Then inside each white bin I place three tall smart store inserts for markers, pencils and other items. These come in several colors so you can customize for your space.
