Organizing Tools of the Trade


At a recent meeting of our local NAPO Chapter fellow professional organizers shared their favorite tools for organizing jobs. Here are 5 that intrigued us:

Rubbermaid Flex‘n Carry totes. The short heights work really well for sorting items during clean up. When not in use, they stack easily and don’t take up a lot of storage space. The tall heights make fantastic hampers that provide air flow, a small footprint, and are easy to carry. Cost ranges from $13-21 based on size.


12” rotary paper trimmer for easily cutting shelf & drawer liners.



Here’s an example of a hand-held trimmer

Cooking spray or cooking oil is an alternative to GooGone® and GoofOff® to remove sticky residue.


Any salad oil could work is an email unsubscribe tool. It acts like a filter on your inbox, identifying subscription emails and letting you unsubscribe with a single click. Also gives you the option of getting a daily digest email of subscriptions you are interested in keeping. for electronic organizing. It is a system with an external hard drive that acts as your personal cloud that can be accessed by any wifi enabled device without having to pay monthly fees to outside companies. Made by Western Digital.

Of course we can never leave home without our label makers, Sharpies® and Post-Its®… Have a home organizing tool you rely on? Share it here!
