The 12 Best Organization Tools You Can Buy At IKEA For Under $30

by Megan Grant

Know what sounds like the perfect Friday night to me? A little vino, maybe some soft music, and every episode of KHLO-C-D on YouTube. If you're a neat freak like me, this is pure heaven. KHLO-C-D is great for organization inspiration; but if you're looking to stock up on Khloe Kardashian-level tools on a not-so-Kardashian budget, you're going to love these organization tools you can buy at IKEA for under $30.

I learned after one trip to IKEA that one does not simply visit IKEA, briefly peruse the aisles, and find exactly what they're looking for. Your options are either to pack food, water, and clean underwear and spend the entire week there, or do your shopping online. I'll go with the latter of the two. Spend five minutes on their website and you'll see this is one of the go-to places for people who love to have everything organized. After all, there's a place for everything, and everything belongs in its place.

Buying all the essentials to keep your home neat and tidy can get a little pricy; but rest assured IKEA has sweet purchases for every budget. These items are less than $30 each and will help you channel your inner Khloe Kardashian.

Hanging Compartments

Organizer With 5 Compartments, $8, Slakting

Imagine getting your dirty shoes off the floor and easily storing them someplace out of the way. Does that not sound like a dream come true? IKEA also has a version with three compartments, in case you don't need as much space. Or, you know, you could just buy both.

Hanging Shoe Organizer

While you can use these compartments for anything, they're typically used to hold shoes. I have one of these hanging on the back of the closet door, and let me say: even when the world is in chaos, I know my shoes are organized, and I feel a bit better.

Don't they look like cute little trees? This isn't mere decor, though — it's a fully functional clothing rack.
