Getting rid of clutter around the house is one thing, but actually making the effort to organize your stuff is quite another! For one, de-cluttering is just the act of getting rid of what you don’t really need. It’s simple enough, and it doesn’t usually cost you anything. But organizing is more complicated, because it requires you to rethink the way you store your stuff. And if you’re rearranging things and moving stuff around, you might need to buy some organizing supplies (like bins, boxes, hooks, etc.) to help you get the job done.
And while you can easily blow an entire paycheck during a trip to the Container Store, organizing supplies don’t have to be expensive! In fact, there are plenty of inexpensive products out there that can help you get more organized around the house. And that’s exactly what today’s post is all about! :-)
I recently spent a few hours scouring Amazon for brilliant yet budget-friendly organization products. I ended up narrowing down my list to 15 practical products that each cost under $10! Check them out below, and get inspired to tackle your own budget-friendly organization project!

15 Awesome Organizers For Under $10
I used to pile all the lids to my cooking pots in a stack in one of my kitchen cupboards. It was a horrible system, and I definitely don’t recommend it. I bought one of these racks for pot lids a few years ago, and it ended up being a total game-changer! It takes up less space than my stack of lids did, and it makes it so much easier to find and grab a lid when I need it. View it on Amazon.
