If you’ve been following me a while, you’ll know that I LOVE storage! There’s not that much choice in this little country of ours, so when I find good products, I get excited to try them out. To get organised, planning and choosing storage wisely is important. I use lots of different storage in my home. Below are just five storage solutions that I can’t live without!
IKEA VARIERA CONTAINERS
These are without a doubt my favourite storage solution. I have them in my home and have installed them in many clients homes. They match almost all decor and always seem to fit any space! Wonderful product!

I picked up these baskets while on holidays in France a few years ago and I love them. I’m using two in my bathroom to hold cotton buds and my hairbrush. I have another one at the side of my bed holding my bedtime lotions and potions! They are a great example of how beautiful storage solutions around your home can be!
This may seem like a crazy addition to this list, especially after the beautiful baskets above. But I always have a supply of Ziploc bags. If you’re ever stuck for storage, grab a ziploc bag and they’ll store so many small items really well for you!
Ever since I was a child going to school, I have always loved pencil cases. I would change my pencil case every September at back-to-school time. When I finished college, I was so disappointed not to have a reason to buy a pencil case anymore!
That was until I realised one for my handbag would be really handy! It was driving me crazy to search in my handbag for a pen, and I hated when ink would ruin the inner lining. So I bought myself a cute little pencil case & now I always have a pen and pencil to hand! The one I use here is another French buy from a company called Laurige.

And finally, these drawer dividers from IKEA are another favourite. There are very few drawers in my home that aren’t divided up. It’s so much easier to see things in a drawer and keep them organised if you use drawer dividers. These ones from IKEA are great, as they are cloth, so they won’t pull at your clothes or underwear like plastic ones might do. They also come in nice colours.

Storage doesn’t have to be black, white and grey in colour or boring office supplies. There are some lovely containers and storage solutions out there. Hopefully the few I’ve shown here will inspire you to have a good look around next time you need to shop!
