The Home Edit Organizing Dupes!! Cheap storage alternatives!!Jun 08, 2021
hey guys welcome back to my channel it's france it explains everything so i'm as hooked on the new
editing show on netflix as i'm a fan of
homeorganization anyway so when i watched that the show came out, I'm pretty sure. i watched it all in two days so if you've seen the show then you know it's amazing the posts are pretty funny huh they go through them and organize people's houses whether they're celebrities or regular people they'll go through them and what they will. a um a home
edition so i was kind of hooked on the program i was depressed i mean i organized my house last time all this madness came out with the marie condo program and the home edition program does a really good job of make things look really beautiful. so i think marie kondo was more focused on making sure things were purged and you know you're just putting things in your house that you know bring you joy or whatever you're actually going to use every day which is great and that's one of the steps in the home edition as well d When doing home cleaning, you know to get rid of things you're no longer using that you just know aren't functional and you know how to put them back in a way that's easily accessible, so you know it helps you stay up to date. with the organization system but what I really loved about the home edition store is that they actually focused on making the space look really beautiful with those clear bins or just beautiful boxes that know they hold everything and stuff it was maybe a little different i think about the difference between the two programs but there's only one problem with this whole home editing store is that just like with any other DIY store you want to throw out your whole house and start over again, but the problem is that I don't. i have a rich relative who is going to die and leaves me four thousand dollars to go to the container store and buy all these beautiful containers to redo my house, so i thought why don't i start looking for maybe some dummies, some more
cheapAlternatives for those like me who are on a budget who would really like to organize their home in a pretty, you know, functional way and maybe spend a little less money on that doing it so what I did was go through Amazon and I tried to look up some of the most popular things the home publishing store let you know on their show and on their website on the container store website and tried to find a duplicate if I could or something close or something comparable to the home publishing store. just so you know maybe you could do a little bit
cheaper purchase so if that sounds interesting stay tuned and i'll be right back ok first thing i did was go to the container store website and i mean it's like you know heaven for people who love organization and
storagesolutions like me but i checked out the site and went specifically to the home editing section and this is the part of the website where they had just sponsored the show. a and then I saw that they had some major categories of organization pieces, so I went through them and tried to consolidate them a bit.
I condensed them down to five, so I went ahead and organized the things I found in the pantry
storage. closet bedroom storage jewelry and makeup storage toy storage and garage storage and I'll put the timestamps here for each section if you're interested in seeing what I found on Amazon just the duplicates so before I show you what that i found and the amazing kind of deals out there i wanted to do some caveats first so first of all i have nothing against the container store i love it i mean i would be a kid in a candy store if i went there but I wanted to find something that you knew again that it was something that was a duplicate or something close enough that you feel good about what you're putting together in your home and not know to go outside of your budget if you're working within a budget. like me so b But I don't want this to be like I hate the container store because I don't love it and to be honest some things were cheaper at the container store so I'm also mentioning some of the places I found . best deals at the container store I made a list and I'll just mention them so and the other thing was there are things I liked about the container store maybe they were comparable in price to what I found on amazon but no they don't ship to me i don't have a container store near me so if you have if you have one near you you're very lucky but i don't have one near me so you would have to ship everything and not everything ships for whatever reason they don't offer shipping for every product so i thought of a few things and found i was like oh you know what its not a bad deal actually i could buy that and i went and said it doesnt ship like that that i'm fine to pick up only so that's unfortunate so anyway that's one of the benefits i found from you know to use amazon in this case because amazon would send another warning is that it's not all exactly one to one so you'll see when i place the images i have next to each other and for the most part i try to get as close as possible but they are not always the same the measurements are not the same they rarely line up to where i was like exactly the same measurement i tried to get within a couple of inches or a few inches off the size so it was pretty much the same obviously I wouldn't say it's much cheaper to buy this on Amazon and it was like you know a little little container vs a big container you know at the container store no I did that. i tried to keep it more or less similar but i didn't spend too many hours uh i spent a lot of hours researching but i didn't spend too many hours really trying to match exactly so just double check the measurements on amazon if you're going to go with it and just be sure it's going to work i In the space you're looking for, obviously always check the measurements.
The other thing I found was that on Amazon to make the price so good, they offered things like a bundle or a bundle, so I like the best way. to get the best deal is to buy a four pack of something or an eight pack of something and sometimes that's good because you know when you're
organizinga pantry you don't just need one container you need 10 or 12 or whatever you might need a pack anyway and that often works well but that's where one of the benefits that the container store has is if you just need one this size or one that size you can buy one of that or the another and buy them individually instead of having to know how to buy a pack of them although they are maybe a bit more expensive per item so keep that in mind that's one of the things I just wanted to rule out. wanted to point out that i just round most ings up or down you know i rounded to the nearest decimal place and i tried to keep it simple and so the prices are rounded and then for some things there is a price range and if i'm looking at some clear bins the container store or amazon might have a range between if you are buying a small one is this cost if you are buying a large one like this cost and so i took the range and then to calculate the cost savings i took the average of the cost you know was in the middle and what i'm going to show you next is a side by side comparison of some of the
dupesi guess if i could call it that or just
alternativesmaybe that's a better word for what i found in the container store for some of the stuff most popular in the home edition and then what i found on amazon and the prices of each and then the cost savings in between. savings so let's start with our categories and again they are pantry closet and b edroom jewelry and makeup toys and garage storage so let's start with pantry storage so the first item I came across was these linus pantry bins and on the bin store site they were about 13-25 bucks depending on what size you get and i found about the same on amazon for seven to 13 bucks which I thought was a great deal and has a 47 discount and people only use them to organize regular groceries.
Next we have a tea storage caddy and I have one of these. 22 at the container store and 17 on amazon so not a huge savings just a few bucks cheaper if you're looking for something that holds the same amount of tea not the savings of about 23 cheaper the following What I found was these tall food cereal containers or organizers and they are 17 each for the acrylic ones but Amazon has these plastic ones for three bucks a piece again check the measurements there but that's a significant savings 82 percent cheaper um to buy these so i was amazed at this: these clear stackable food containers for your pantry and i love them.
I think they are so cute and can tag them. I found eighteen dollars at the container store and fourteen dollars on Amazon. 22 percent off you know a little bit of savings just a few bucks cheaper next to these little
organizingcontainers so you can use them for little sauce packets and things and I found these depending on the size for about six to nine dollars at the container store and between a dollar 25 and 750 on amazon so definitely cheaper almost half of me at 42 percent off um you know just for arranging those little things next to the container store . split one up and didn't have too many dividers in the amazon version but it's eight bucks cheaper for a savings of about 44 and i like these just for organizing little bits and pieces and next is a tiered can rack and i had a hard time finding exactly the same but it has three tiers of cans on both sides and i think both are expandable so five bucks cheaper on amazon which is about 33 savings isn't a huge savings but every dollar counts. bamboo kitchen organizer for your utensils and i found pretty much the same thing it looked very similar to me and it was a significant savings in my mind almost double the price so this was a savings of 47 on amazon if you like this bamboo look below i actually found these hyacinth baskets and i didn't find them cheaper on amazon at all i couldn't find them cheap as any size the container store really beat them and then you can see some of the sample prices here , so i would go to the container store if you liked those hyacinth storage baskets next up is an over the door spice rack so i tried to find the same number of shelves i think each has six and i found it for eighty-three bucks in the container store and thirty-six bucks it's on Amazon which is significant um now the container store assembles it and Amazon is over the door so it's a small difference but almost 60 cheaper um these are actually these little clear pantry labels to label your baskets.
I found out they were 350 a piece at the container store and you can buy the little clear plastic packs as a bulk pack and they ended up being 22 cents each so they look a little cheaper but they are a lot cheaper in price . Then there are the pantry stickers and these you don't get that many at the container store so they turned out to be about 19 a piece sorry 19 cents 19 cents a piece versus four cents a piece because in the package of Amazon you get a ton like 130 something and so it's 80 off if you're comparing the cost of each tag then we go to the closet and bedroom category and this is where I started with these fabric clear window stackable organizers and found out it's 30 a piece at the container store vs amazon you I can buy this lot in an eight pack and it turns out to be about five bucks so it's about 83 cheaper although the quality may not be exactly the same .
Next up is these dresser drawer dividers. I love. They are about ten dollars a piece. for these little expandable dividers vs five bucks a piece on amazon which of course is kind of a savings of 50 and i like them both are expandable and both work so i thought that was a great deal next to these clear bins um boxes for closet storage and I found out they were 15 each at the container store and if you buy this bundle it turns out to be, I think, eight bucks a piece on Amazon but I think this is one of those deals where you have to buy it on one pack next up is these dresser drawer organizers for ties socks bras and stuff and they were 20 each at the container store depending on what size you got and up they started at 20 vs amazon you get this I think this whole set for 13 so I thought that was a really fantastic deal below for shoe storage if you like these container stores have these each container ofclear shoes are ten bucks so they are individual so a pair of shoes can be stored for ten bucks instead of five bucks on amazon each of those shoes you know the storage boxes were five so that's about half of the following they're shoe stackers and i saw something similar to this on the show though i think they were clear so you can store a pair of shoes for three bucks at the container store and they were 1 70 on amazon so these were a little bit cheaper 43 off especially if you're buying a lot of them one of the things that made a big difference in the show was actually the hangers that had consistent hangers and had these hangers velveteen for 70 cents a piece at the container store and 31 cents a piece on Amazon which isn't necessarily a huge savings um you know it is but when you buy like 100 of them you rea They really add up and similarly with these, um, these natural wood bin of wood or natural wood hangers were 1.50 vs. the dollar, which is only 50 savings per but if you're buying 100 of them, you know that's significant, that's 50 so i think every little bit counts when you buy a lot of stuff like that in quantity and similarly the acrylic hangers they love to use on the show were nine bucks a hanger so if you're bougie enough to do this for your closet then it's good for you but I recommend you get version 4.60 for Amazon which is a pretty big saving it's almost half that.
I'm not that bougie. storage so I'm starting here with the jewelry stacking organizer and this was very popular on the show. I couldn't find anything like a super similar color which is why I love the blush color but these were 35-40 per tray vs 750 per tray which is why it's on Amazon so much cheaper to do the whole organizer , it was a lot it's very expensive next these clear makeup organizers and i have them all day they are very popular at t.j.maxx but they have these for sixty three dollars at container store and thirty dollars at amazon or you can just go to tj maxx and get them for fifteen bucks um so that's 52 savings here next position basic acrylic tray always nice to organize things like a nice tray and they sold them for thirty bucks at the amazon container store and 19 on amazon though the container stores were mirrored, so if it makes a big difference to you, then the amazon version didn't have a mirror at the bottom, so I'll mention that below, the organ category. of toy storage so kids toys can get out of hand so first there's this art cart that looked a lot like me both were metal both had three bins or three bins and $116 vs $39 I thought that was a significant deal at 66 percent off, even though it doesn't have the dividers, next up is these unstackable colored bins.
I couldn't find this anywhere comparable on Amazon. I looked everywhere for these types of containers and couldn't find them cheaper. it's three for twenty bucks so if you like what you see here this set would cost you I think forty bucks total because there are six containers so I would say container store for that um next up is these little clear toy bins and these were six bucks. for thirty bucks depending on the container store vs ten bucks a piece on Amazon it was a four pack for forty bucks so I don't know I think that's a good savings personally it's forty five percent off especially if you're buying a lot of them i think it can really help and add up next was this fabric storage cubby and i found out the frame was fabric and it was 45 bucks and each bin was nine bucks compared to a frame i couldn't find. fabric frame on Amazon I found a wood frame that is much more durable for about the same cost and the bins were only three bucks so about on average about 35 percent cheaper and more durable. show and i could not find a clear one i could only find like this kind of transparent split or split color turntable on amazon so if your kids like colors it's cheaper it's about 40 cheaper but than what Otherwise if you like it clear I would go with the container store so this paper document case is next it was eight bucks an item so each of those little containers is eight bucks not the whole set um, versus Amazon, which each of these is four dollars and seventy cents, so that's about forty percent cheaper.
Your Papers and Documents Next up is the garage storage category, so I started with garage shelving first. I found these bakery rack type shelves. The one from the container store was 90 and had no wheels. I think it was about the same height and um yeah I thought it was a better deal about 30 cheaper and I like that it has wheels so you can move it around these storage bins I couldn't find. This one is cheaper on Amazon. I've looked up all the sizes and unless I'm missing it these were only five to ten dollars a piece and I for a piece and I thought it's very similar to sports storage.
I couldn't find a better deal for these on amazon so i recommend going to the bin store and they are pretty affordable lastly its the bike destroying utility bike rack i think we each stored four to five bikes and this was a savings of about half that was 86 vs 40 bucks to store that doesn't have storage for the helmets that's the only difference I would mention here so as you can see there are some amazing savings some of them not that great , you know it's just a few different bucks and some of it is drastically different so you know I can't speak to the quality of some of those items certainly look at the reviews on amazon but to tell me it's worth it you know what to do that cut um just to be able to afford to organize my house in a beautiful way um the other thing is i'm not limiting this to amazon i mean obviously look elsewhere um tj maxx tie ne some great deals actually i took a look at tj maxx to see what they had and i thought for sure because this home edition um you know the show had just come out that the stores were going to be empty the shelves were going to be empty but I really found some good storage and I'll just show you a couple things I found.
For the most part, I found this clear. Acrylic storage to hold things like lipsticks or just makeup or jewelry. They had lots of things to store and even custom ones to store like cotton rounds or just scissors and tools and things you might use in the bathroom. they are pretty cheap this one is only 3.99 this one was 5.99 I was trying to see some of the prices just to show you this one is 16.99 but it is a little bigger like a tower that organizes makeup brushes and things that one costs 13 and then they had some you know diff different configurations like this multi tool organizer and this was a 9.99 so these are some really good prices comparable to what I was seeing on amazon and they also had these baskets which I thought were amazing they have cloth baskets they have plastic they have some of those wicker and hyacinth baskets so it depends what you're looking for but they had some for ten bucks some of these were 7.99 for some cloth and some of the hyacinth wicker type it looks like They cost a little more at 12.99, but they're still a lot cheaper than what you'd find on Amazon and, um, comparable to what I was looking at in the container store for this guy. but they had all kinds of sizes they were also big on the bottom here you probably can't tell the size but they are pretty big for um you know to store all kinds of different things from blankets to little things i love a good tj maxx find anyway so which I'm happy to have.
You know, I've seen all of those and I bought a few of those for my personal makeup, you know, collection and the other thing is don't be afraid to look at the dollar tree, right? The dollar tree is known to be inexpensive because of the storage options they have. shoe boxes have all sorts of little containers they're not as glam as the clear acrylic containers but they work and are much cheaper than the ones you found on amazon so maybe if you're not as tied up in the beautiful you know the glam look of clear bins no doubt look at Dollar Tree and Walmart and places like those that know about cheap storage options and the last thing I would say is to think outside the box sometimes you find some really beautiful storage solutions that are unexpected are free or they are cheaper than you thought and you never thought to use them that way so maybe get creative and I'll give you a couple of examples of what I use in my craft. room so I a In fact, a friend gave me a box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates and it was very sweet of her.
I actually loved the acrylic box that it came with, so I actually just took the middle insert that had all the chocolates, a little gold one that you know holds all the chocolates, and used the tray as a sewing tray, like this i carry this around for my notions i thought it was a cute idea and similarly someone had given me a couple of spice racks and i used them to hold all my strings they are the perfect size to just put all my threads by color and i love it as an organizer, it has a few different trays that slide out, i use one not only for thread but i also use the other one for bead storage and therefore jewelry making supplies.
I have all my little o-rings and all my little beads and things so I can organize in these little dollar tree tins which were really cheap and then also speaking of dollar tree a little bit earlier I use these d ollar tree jars just They cost a dollar I love just organizing things in a glass or plastic I have everything separated in here and it's so easy to grab I use it not only for pens and pencils and markers but for little bits of wood and specks and things that I want to have easy access and I also found these cheap little tension rods on Amazon that I use they are very small and I only use them to hold some of my cutters so that's another idea to use storage is to use tension rods and then for other storage ideas i use shoe boxes so i picked these up from michael's sale sometimes michaels has a sale where they are two bucks or two bucks and fifty cent avos each and that's a great deal and I was making a sort of kate spade themed craft room so I went ahead and covered them in contact paper and hot glued wrapping paper to each of them and just popped this little piece of metal and i got the whole box back and then you can k just put your label on and then you can glue that little piece of metal back on but its perfect for storing different items not too expensive to make a whole craft room just for storing all your stuff and it looks good so that's it I found it took me many hours going back and forth comparing websites looking at sizes looking at prices calculating the difference in savings so hopefully this was helpful for you I've linked all below so if you're interested in buying either of these things from the bin store or amazon I posted um both links and they're tagged below ion in the description box so I hope it's helpful and please subscribe to the channel for free if you haven't.
