Must-Have Dollar Tree Items for Organizing

Before we get into all of these great ideas, here are my favorite items I always grab from our local Dollar Store. 


Dollar Tree is a treasure trove of baskets in various shapes and sizes. They have so many different colors and different types of baskets – wire baskets, plastic baskets, and even woven baskets on rare occasions. These are great finds to organize your small space.

Use these baskets to corral items in any room of your home. In the kitchen, group pantry items together in labeled baskets for easy access. In the bathroom, store toiletries and cleaning supplies in baskets under the sink. Or, use larger baskets as an addition to your decor to store blankets in your living room.

The possibilities are endless, and your space will instantly feel more organized and put together.

Plastic Bins

Plastic containers are a great solution for the pantries, bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, garages…wherever! They are definitely the most universal and practical out of all of the organizational items at Dollar Tree. 

Plus, I love how you can just rinse out anything that may spill. We’ve used these to store bath toys, water play outside, and messy things in the garage.

Glass Jars

If you lack pantry space and want to keep everything pretty, the Dollar Store’s version of mason jars is your best bet for your pantry shelves. While beautiful, the brand-name versions will really wreak havoc on your budget. This is the perfect way to get the look you want, gain extra space, and save your money.

However, the Dollar Tree carries these in various shapes and sizes. Use these to store dried beans, pastas, fruits, dry goods, or grab-and-go items for convenience. This keeps your space functional and beautiful!

Not only will your storage look cohesive, but you’ll also save money compared to purchasing expensive storage solutions from other big box stores.

Collapsible Fabric Bins

These might be my favorite Dollar Tree item! Remember when these took the world by storm years ago? Well, they are still just as expensive. However, Dollar Stores have saved the day again with their very own line of collapsible fabric bins.

These look a little more polished than plastic containers and do a great job of hiding the items inside. These are great for storing small toys like legos, small cars, or doll accessories. Plus, you can choose a single color or pattern to add a cohesive look to your space.

Additionally, when you aren’t using them, they fold up nicely so your unused storage items aren’t taking up … storage space.

The key to a well-organized space is knowing where everything belongs. Dollar Tree offers an array of labels and stickers that can be used to categorize and identify items in your home. They even have chalkboard labels!

Where to Use Dollar Store Organization Hacks

In the Bathroom

Let’s start with the bathroom! If you have kids, you know how messy and unorganized a bathroom can be. It’s often a haven for half-empty shampoo bottles, stray Q-tips, and empty packaging! All of which can really become annoying when assessing the items you need. 

While regularly decluttering your bathroom is ideal, it doesn’t always happen if we’re honest. However, with a few baskets and containers, you can coral all of those random items together in organizational bliss. 

My biggest tip: group like items together. Better yet, give each kid a basket where their toothbrush, deodorant, hair brush, and whatever else they may need can live permanently. No more fighting over hair things and lost items.

A few over-the-door hooks are also a great way to keep towels and robes at arm’s reach. Trust me, your morning routine and sanity will thank you.

In the Kitchen

Ah, the heart of the home—the kitchen! Dollar Tree is a goldmine for kitchen organization. We all know that if our kitchen is out of whack, so will the rest of the house. 

Specifically, our pantry was a big project I took on a while back. An organized pantry is key to keeping things stress-free in the kitchen. The last thing I want to do is dig around for what I need when I’m in the middle of cooking dinner for the family.

If you want to get your pantry organized on a budget, I have some great Dollar Store organizing ideas for you! From plastic containers of different sizes to magazine racks used differently – there are so many simple ideas in this post.

Here are a few basic organizational ideas you can use in your kitchen:

  • Group like items, like individually wrapped snacks, sauce packets, and other small items into bins. Make sure the items are visible so you can quickly see what you are running out of as you make your grocery list.
  • Spice up your spice cabinet with small containers for individual seasoning packets. A lazy susan works wonders when hunting for a spice container.
  • Drawer dividers work great for keeping cooking utensils in their place and sorting smaller items in a pantry or cabinet.

In the Laundry Room

Now, let’s tackle the laundry room—a place that can quickly become a vortex of lost socks, piles of clothes, and detergent bottles. 

Dollar Tree’s budget-friendly solutions to the rescue! Use sturdy baskets to separate darks from lights, and add labels for a touch of organization chic.

Command hooks are perfect for hanging ironing boards or organizing cleaning supplies. Before you know it, laundry day will be a breeze, and you might even find it a tad enjoyable.

More Tips for Organizing with Dollar Tree

Make it Match

I typically don’t encourage buying more than you really need, but since Dollar Store items are cheap, I’ll break my own rule. If you like the look of a cohesive space, don’t be afraid to buy an extra container or two to have on hand in the event that you need an extra. 

Adding to your own aesthetic will make you more likely to maintain your organizational system. Plus, who doesn’t love a Pinterest-worthy space?!

Personalize it

Get creative! If you must mismatch bins, you can spray paint the plastic ones to make them all the same color or use textured paint for a more elevated look.

Cover plain storage containers with contact paper or add pretty labels for more personalization.

Stock up on the Essentials

Obviously, Dollar Tree is way more affordable than your average big box store, so stock up on the items you use the most! 

Things like hooks, hangers, and bins rarely go to waste. Plus, you never know when you’ll need them for your next organizational project.

Declutter Often

Yes, I know. Easier said than done. But, if you get into the habit of regularly sorting through your bathroom, kitchen, and other spaces, you’ll be much more likely to maintain the work you’ve already completed.

There’s nothing worse than watching a perfectly beautiful organized space deteriorate into a disheveled mess. So, once a month or so, sort through medicines, spices, baking goods, beauty products, and other such items and toss the ones that have expired or are no longer usable.

Utilize Vertical Space

Hooks, shoe bags, and stacking bins are great ways to store items vertically. Behind doors or vacant wall and cabinet spaces are ideal for these items!

They allow you to see what exactly you have to grab quickly. Plus, they use space that is otherwise wasted.

Don’t Duplicate

Buying in bulk is a great way to save money, but it can take a toll on your organizational system. Store duplicates in another out-of-the-way location (like the top shelf in the laundry room or garage) and only keep what you need in your immediate space.

For example, if you have 8 tubes of toothpaste, keep one in the bathroom and store the others elsewhere. It’s just as important to keep the extras organized, too, to not waste products or spend money you don’t have to!

With a little ingenuity and a handful of dollars, Dollar Tree becomes a haven for organizational enthusiasts on a budget. From baskets to containers, hooks to labels, the possibilities are vast. Embrace the art of organization without breaking the bank, and watch as your home transforms into a clutter-free sanctuary. Happy organizing!
