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

Let me start by saying that I have a degree in economics and understand the arguments for and against manufacturing products overseas.  I choose to make purchase of American made products whenever possible to support American workers and manufacturing.

Function is most important to me. I’ve always been purposeful in purchasing items. Who wants to waste money and contribute to the landfill with impulse purchases? These are all useful organizing products that work well in organizing your home. Many of them are versatile, so you can use them in different areas of your home as your needs and home change.

Made in America Organizing Products 

Storage Bins

3 red, green and clear bins stacked
and filled with Christmas decorations

Let’s start with everyone’s favorite organizing friend – the large storage bin.  I use them to store holiday decorations, 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. The lids really are weathertight to keep out moisture and pests.

Kitchen Organizing Products

For years, I’ve been aa big fan of organizing my refrigerator with Binz (as you can see in one of my earliest blog posts).  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. 

It’s important to me that kitchen organizing products be easy to clean. If it’s organizing my kitchen, I want to be able to easily keep it clean and sanitary. You’ll find that all the product I recommend are easy to wash or wipe down.

Closet Organizing

The biggest tip for organizing your closet is to reduce (reduce, reduce) the number of items you have in your closet.

My favorite closet organizing tips:

Once you’ve reduced the amount you have to store in your closet, these are great American made products.

Bathroom Organizing

I’ve also used American-made clear bins to organize under the sink in my kids’ bathroom because they’re sturdy enough to hold all your stuff and can be cleaned easily.

Just like in the kitchen, I make sure that organizing products used in the bathroom are always easy to clean. The high humidity level in the bathroom causes dust to stick to items. Additionally, many bathroom products are messy and will make frequent wiping necessary.

Garage Organizing

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 Craft 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.

  1. Hi Susan – All too often I go for what is there or convenient and I’m ashamed to say I don’t always look for Made in the USA. Thank you for the gentle reminder and will definitely step up my game! Hugs, Holly

  2. Thank you for putting this together. Because of lax standards and oversight in some countries, I’m especially wary of products that I keep food in if it is made overseas. So glad to have options made here in the U.S.A.

  3. I am a big fan of the large storage containers. We have a basement full and I love that there are so many colors available now! I try to color coordinate with the holidays. I have to admit, I have never really checked to see where they are made, but I will be on the lookout now!

    1. Fortunately, Cynthia, you can find the large tubs that are made in the US fairly easily. Happy shopping.

  4. Organizing in kid’s room is a must! I have become a huge fan of large bins for toys, blankets, etc. I really like the bins you have in your fridge – I may have to get some of those!

    1. My kiddos are old enough that I don’t get to organize their rooms as much as I’d like (I kind of miss the challenge of organizing kid clothes and toys). Andrea, you’ll lo-ove the bins in the fridge. They’re nice and sturdy and so easy to clean. Happy organizing!
