TIP 1: START WITH A BLANK SLATE

Reese and her multipurpose closet share something in common: They truly do it all. This closet is a snack station, craft supply corner, tech command center, and more—if you need it, it has it. But for our team to create a system that works for the space and the categories that live there, they needed to remove absolutely everything and start fresh. If you are thinking, "Is that really necessary?" The answer is yes. You have to be able to view the space not as what it was but as what it can be, and the only way to do that is when it's completely empty. It also allows room to measure the shelving to find the best storage solutions, which, in this case, were our clear All-Purpose Bins, Narrow Bins, and Divided Turntables.

TIP 2: REMOVE ORIGINAL PACKAGING

Speaking of starting fresh, we always recommend removing items from their original packaging whenever possible, especially food. Because, let's be honest, bulky boxes take up more space, and nothing is more annoying than going to grab a granola bar only to find out there are none left. To recreate Reese's grab-and-go station at home, you'll need divided turntables, glass jars, and labels. And that's it!

TIP 3: BRING SYMMETRY TO OPEN SHELVING

Reese is right: Open shelving can be hard to keep organized, but here are a few tricks of the trade we've learned along the way:

  • Create focal points: Add a pop of something unexpected to make the space shine. For instance, potted plants like we did at Reese's!

  • Be spatially aware: If you can stack, stack—but always think about visual weight beforehand to avoid anything looking lopsided or top-heavy.

  • Uniformity is key: Pick the items you display wisely and consistently. Mismatched pieces that don't look intentional can make a space look disheveled and disconnected.

  • Avoid monotony: Mirror the same or similar items to create balance while playing around with varying heights and shapes.

TIP 4: DISINTEGRATE THE DUMPING GROUND

The deeper the drawer, the more easily it can become a dumping ground. The solution is simple: Place bins inside that closely match the depth of the drawer and separate each category. Our Tall Baby Bins were the perfect size to store Reese's smaller cooking tools upright so they are more visible. Deep drawer bins came in handy for the larger tools so they could be laid flat.

TIP 5: GET IN THE (FRIDGE) ZONE

Fun fact: Organizing a fridge doesn't take as long as you may think it does. It's a relatively small space with straightforward categories. The storage solutions are straightforward, too. Clear bins, drawers, and labels for the win here! After tossing out expired items (don't skip this step!), all you need to do is designate a containment zone for each category and label accordingly—just like our team did at Reese's!
