I must say I'm having the most must familiarizing myself with products. Does one have to have products to organize their space? No, absolutely not. Of course, I would suggest that if you're not planning on spending money on product then as a compromise you do plan on getting rid of a lot of stuff.
But that's all besides the point. My current research has taken me to options based on form, aesthetics, and design. Parallel to that,I've looked at options that provide function but at a better price point. It's been difficult trying to figure out how to file all this info in my brain. I know some designers and organizers only use one brand. They know it. They love it. They swear by it. But have you gone shopping for organizational bins lately? I don't know if its just the pandemic or what but the prices for items that do the same thing are just all over the place! It's almost unfair. Yet, with the right amount of dedicated time and a clear understanding of your wanted outcome you can find what you need that's both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Does the whole idea of it all make your head hurt? Just call me. I'll make it easy on yia ;)
