I try to always make purposeful choices. I consider many factors when I make a purchase; price, quality, usefulness, impact on the environment and whether is it made in America. In the past couple of years, I’ve been ecstatic to find that more and more organizing products are made in the USA. Here are a few of my favorite Made in America organizing products.
Let me start by saying that I have a degree in economics and understand the arguments for and against manufacturing products overseas. If you’re interested why I’m so committed to purchasing products made in the USA, you can read my brief diatribe.
Made in America Organizing
Large Storage Bin
…to store my children’s keepsakes, to store items for the many times we move and for storing out-of-season clothing in my children’s closets.
These storage bins from IRIS are used through out my house, basement and garage for storage. I love that they are clear and that they’re made in the USA. I use the IRIS weathertight bins to organize my children’s keepsakes.
I’m a big fan of organizing my refrigerator with Binz. They’re sturdy, clear, easy to clean and made in the USA.
You can purchase Binz bins either individually or in the Interdesign 4-Piece Fridge and Freezer Storage Bins. I recommend the set of 4 because you’ll find uses for everyone of those bins. I’ve also used these to organize under the sink in my kids’ bathroom because they’re sturdy enough to hold all your stuff and can be cleaned easily.
Garages can be such a mess with cords, jump ropes, and so many more items that need to be held neatly together. Nite Ize Gear Ties are made in America and are my favorite way to keep those cords under control. They come in many different sizes, but the combo pack has a variety of sizes, Nite Ize Gear Tie Assortment Bag – 8 Units.
They’re also a great way to organize cords in your bathroom.
Toy and Closet Organizing
I use these stacking crates in my linen closet, my basement and in my closet. They are made in the USA and can be used individually or stacked. I also like them because they’re plastic and can easily be cleaned.
