Organizing Love: Some Recent Purchases That Make My Heart Happy

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that we are in the middle of a bit of a bedroom redo with a new bed, bed frame, headboard, and all the bedding. I’ll be sharing more about that soon, but in the meantime, I’ve also been doing a little home organization. I guess it’s the ‘spring cleaning’ bug, because I’ve had the urge to clean and purge and put nicely labeled tags on things.

So, let’s look at two things I bought and love… and one that I HATED:

LOVED: HomeHacks Storage 3-Pack of Storage Bags:


These are currently $11.99 for a 3-pack of organizers and they are fantastic. I was cleaning out all our older bedding out of Jack’s closet and needed somehow to keep things separated, organized, and accessible. These worked out GREAT.

Here they are stored away above my closet:

I have one for crochet quilts, one for off-season Queen sheets for Jack’s bed, and one for a spare Queen duvet, spare Queen summer sheets, and extra pillowcases. They are generously sized, have a clear window, and the zippers work perfectly.

HATED: Fixwal Clear Storage Bags:


Don’t buy these – they are absolute crap! I put two pillows in one of these and immediately the zipper broke. So, I grabbed another one… that one broke too. Immediately! The four-pack cost $23 (double the other kind) and they are absolute trash. These were returned.

LOVED: PowerStrip with Flat Plug:


I have an absolute mess of plugs next to my bed for my iphone charger, iwatch charger, white noise machine, lamp, etc. Once we tidied up the rest of the room, it made this even more of an eyesore:

I found this flat plug power strip for $16 and it has an attractive cord, fits 4 outlets and 3 USP charger ports, and was easily to attach to the wall. LOVE IT!

I currently have everything plugged into the outlets, but can also utilize the USB ports for my iwatch and iphone. I just didn’t do it yet, because I’m traveling this weekend and don’t want to forget to grab the plugs when I go!

The Pocketful of Joules Favorites List

I went through my Amazon orders for the last couple years, as well as items I’ve recommended and made a special Pocketful of Joules Favorites List. If you click through and buy anything on the list, OR if you click through my list and then go elsewhere to make your needed Amazon purchases, I may earn a small affiliate commission. And I do mean small, but it does add up over time to help pay for the annual blog hosting fees I pay.

If you’re planning on shopping anyways, I’d really appreciate it!

  1. Thanks! I have a multi cord plug in for my outlet, and it takes all kinds of cords, and a few for my phone, etc. Great idea! Hopefully, I can gather the energy to start a spring organization, as well. Thanks for the inspiration!
