If there was one thing my mom taught me, it was how to clean. It’s also one of my least favorite things to do. I was the type of kid that had a pile of laundry in a chair that would grow each week until my mother came in, screaming for me to clean it up. It wasn’t until I had my own home and two kids that I realized how important organization was to keeping a clean house (and why my mom yelled at me about that laundry).
For help, I would search through Pinterest and read blogs to get organization ideas, but I found that while many of the “hacks” were appealing to the eye, the functionality was just not practical as I had hoped.
Enter TikTok’s “organization hacks.” Not only were the videos oddly calming and satisfying, but they were also incredibly useful. It was an endless fountain of ideas where I could easily swipe through just for fun or narrow down ideas and actually see what the “hacks” looked like in action.
With #OrganizingTikTok having over 1.1 billion views and #organizing and the various combinations rounding in on millions of views, it is easy to say that people love to organize. From fridge containers to dream closets to shoe collections, TikTok has it all.
Here are 10 of my favorite hacks on TikTok that are oh-so-satisfying.

This sink storage area is my dream come true. Everything is perfectly displayed and you don’t need to shuffle around endlessly to find a hair product that you want (note: soundtrack on this one may be NSFW).

My mother taught me to fold towels like the ones on the left, but I always hated how they took up so much room. Rolling makes sure there’s extra room for whatever you need to add.

When we moved a few weeks ago, I promised myself my home would be organized, and yet my cabinets are still left in chaos. And while I don’t like spending money on things I do not absolutely need, I consider it an investment to make our day-to-day lives easier.

With my eldest starting kindergarten, I am already overwhelmed with the papers, crafts, and odds and ends I am too sentimental to get rid of. This system is great for those wanting to preserve memoirs without hoarding.
