  • Hi everyone. I’m Alejandra from Alejandra.tv and in this video, I’m going to share with

  • you some new, fun organizing products I found at the dollar store. So if you are getting

  • organized inside your house and you are looking for organizing products and you are looking

  • for affordable ways to get organized, I hope you find this video helpful because everything

  • I found at the dollar store was just a dollar and theyre all fun ways to get organized.

  • But first, if this is your first time watching any of my videos and you were just getting

  • started with organizing or you are a new subscriber to my channel, you can check out my free video

  • series on three tasks to do tonight to wake up feeling more organized tomorrow morning.

  • There’s a link below.

  • All right. So let’s go ahead and get started. All right. So the first thing I found here

  • at the dollar store were these very cool, cute, colorful, little bins just like that.

  • They are stackable drawers. They look like they go on a desktop but you can totally use

  • them aton your countertop in the bathroom, under your cabinet in the bathroom again,

  • under the kitchen for littlejust little things around your house that you want to

  • corral and get organized.

  • All right. The next thing, there are a lot of things here. So the next things were these

  • really fun, colorful, drawer organizers that come in hot pink. This is such a fun color.

  • It’s like neon pink. Neon pink. It came in a bright yellow or like an orange. It comes

  • in green also and then a blue as well.

  • Now we are just getting started with organizing our house because we just moved and I popped

  • one of these into Ed’s drawer in his bathroom and it was like a perfect fit. I can’t wait

  • to show you guys the video to show you everything we did but it fits so perfectly without any

  • kind of putty.

  • So these were fun. Again, theyre great for any kind of drawer where you want to sort

  • and categorize things. So along the same lines, I found these awesome, colorful, little plastic

  • bins. Just like that, theyre just like those but those are like translucent and these

  • are solid colors. Again, for any kind of drawer you have around your house.

  • So they come in pink. They come in orange. They come in green and they come in blue.

  • I’ve only seen these in blue before. Like I’ve seen every year in blue but I guess

  • this year they have fun colors for spring. So a lot of these things were from their new

  • like spring fling – I think that’s what theyre calling it, spring fling release

  • of new products.

  • All right. Next thing, hangers. So plastic hangers. If you are looking for fun hangers,

  • the Dollar Tree has them in orange. They come in hot pink. They come in like a turquoise

  • color and then I think I also saw green. So it’s like the same colors as these ones

  • here.

  • All right. Next thing was this little dog treat container. But just because it’s for

  • dog treats does not mean you only have to put dog treats inside. You can put other things

  • around your house. Use it in the garage for small hardware. Use it in the craft closet

  • for craft supplies or use it anywhere where you are corralling things.

  • All right. The next thing was this little tablet organizer, tablet pouch. You put your

  • tablet inside, your e-reader so it doesn’t get damaged. But just because it’s for tablets

  • does not mean you only have to use it for tablets. You can totally use this for jewelry,

  • in your suitcase while you travel. You can use it for your passport, any other small

  • things while you travel. You can use it in the car, like in your glove compartment. I

  • feel like this is the perfect fit inside the little compartment for important documents.

  • You can put wires and cords in here, anything that you want to protect it because it’s

  • kind of like a padded envelope and that came in pink. It came in light blue. It came in

  • dark blue and it came in red.

  • All right. So this is a fun find. This is a bright neon folder but it’s not just a

  • folder. It’s a folder inside with two pockets. You can put a little business card right here

  • but it also has a poly envelope on the outside for small pieces of paper like receipts, coupons,

  • stickers, anything that you cut out or something. So it’s just like a different kind of folder

  • and it’s so fun in color. All right. That came in other colors as well.

  • All right. This next thing, colorful tape for color coding things around your house.

  • So it’s PVC electrical tape but this would be awesome for color coding all your wires

  • and cords behind your entertainment center, like behind the TV, behind your desk forlike

  • computer, printer, mouse, whatever you want to color code with.

  • Just wrap it around your cord. Grab a permanent marker. Label what it is and then you know

  • exactly what to unplug when you are unplugging something.

  • All right, contact paper. So I love using contact paper in drawers, on the back of a

  • book case, the back of a wall or anything where you want to add a pop of color without

  • painting. So the dollar store had this new fun print. It’s silver and white and it’s

  • just a fun print. So that was a new color and then they also had this new fun color.

  • It’s likeit’s like leaves. I don’t know. It’s like leaves I guess but it’s

  • a cushion contact paper.

  • So you would put it at the bottom of a drawer. So I usedso again, were organizing

  • our entire house. All these new systems are getting set up. So I use this in the bathroom

  • and in another place in the house and I use it as a noise barrier. So when you open the

  • drawer and you put something down, it’s not going to make this loud noise because

  • it has this cushion at the bottom of the drawer. It has made a world of difference in the bathroom

  • drawers.

  • So I will show that in an upcoming video. All right. The next thing and I move kind

  • of fast because there are a lot of things here. This is a magnetic little organizer

  • that you can put on the side of the fridge or in the front of the fridge or on a magnetic

  • strip in your office and you can put push pins in here. You can put rubber bands in

  • here, anything small that you want to keep contained.

  • Next thing, this was really fun. So I have something just like this. It’s a colorful

  • poly envelope. It’s like a receipt organizer or you can put your coupons in here sorted

  • by category. But it’s colorful and I’ve never seen this at the dollar store before

  • and I have this and I did not pay a dollar. So this was so fun. It has seven different

  • sections. You would just label all your sections. Parts and materials, computer expenses, whatever

  • your categories are or whatever your coupons are.

  • Then you can just close it up. You can label it on the outside with whatever youre storing

  • inside like coupon organizer, receipt organizer. So that was a totally fun find. All right.

  • The next thingso I found more duct tape or more tape but duct tape and I tried using

  • it and it’s super sticky and I have to say I tried using this as well. It’s super sticky.

  • It really sticks. There was another tape I found at the dollar store that was pretty

  • but it didn’t stick. This sticks really well and they have thisthey have a bunch

  • of new patterns. So this is like a bright colored paisley pattern and then they have

  • a colorful chevron pattern as well.

  • So those are fun and you can use them as labels, like on the front of a shoebox. You can use

  • them for hanging stuff or DIY projects. You can use them for all sorts of things.

  • All right. Then I found these little label holders and I can’t remember if I showed

  • these. I think I showed these like two years ago or something. But theyre label holders.

  • You can label binders. You can label baskets. You can label bins. You can label anything

  • that needs a label. It’s like a little laminated label and you just pop a label in there and

  • it’s nice and laminated. It won’t peel off.

  • All right. The next thingall right. So I love using mini binders for – I use the

  • same binder as my coupon binder. I did a video on it a couple of years ago. It’s awesome.

  • Mini binders are great. They are hard to find inserts because they are so small.

  • The dollar store had mini binder dividers just like this. Never seen them before. They

  • have a nice pocket right here for smaller pieces of paper and they come three to a pack.

  • Now if you need six dividers or you need more dividers, what you can do is you can get two

  • packs and you can just take the divider and – I’m going to have to do this like this.

  • You can flip it upside down and put it in upside down and you can create a divider that’s

  • down here.

  • So if you do that with a second pack, flip them all upside down. You now have six dividers

  • that are all lined up. You just can’t use the pocket because it’s upside down. Well,

  • I guess you could. You just have to paper clip whatever you want to store inside, the

  • upside down pocket. But how fun, sturdy. Theyre fun colors and that was just a fun find.

  • All right. Let’s move along. Next thing, so part of their like spring fling new products

  • and new colors that came out was this fun coral color. I feel like I’m really into

  • coral lately and this is just such a fun bin. It’s a different sized bin. It’s not like

  • your typical shoe size box. Shoe sizeyeah, shoe box.

  • It’s a little bit smaller and wider. So this is fun. It has fun like floral print

  • on the outside and that comes in pink. It comes in this fun green right here. This is

  • a letter tray. The same thing comes in pink, coral, green and this color. Now if you want

  • to like stack letter trays together, you could use mounting putty or Museum Putty to stick

  • them together so they don’t move and then stick this into the desk so it doesn’t move.

  • I have this thing about organizing products that move. All right. So this next thing is

  • a cord organizer for a dollar. So it’s a cord organizer that goes on your desk or on

  • an entertainment center, wherever there are cords and wires. Theyre going to unplug

  • and you don’t want the wire or cord to fall behind the piece of furniture.

  • So it was a dollar and I tried testing it out to see if it really worked and here you

  • go. Here is my test. So I put it on a piece of wood. The adhesive did not stick and I

  • read this online that the adhesive is not very good. So, I took the adhesive off and

  • added my own double-sided sticky mounting tape and it works perfectly now. It’s so

  • secure to this piece of wood and now if I unplug this wire and I just pop it into this

  • holder right here, the wire is not going toit’s not going to fall behind whatever

  • furniture.

  • I have the wire on or behind or something. But anyway, this was a dollar. If you go on

  • Amazon, it’s like 16 bucks plus $7 shipping. It’s crazy. So that was just like a really

  • fun find and I just found that in like some random aisle. It was misplaced and I think

  • it was like the last one.

  • All right. For the very first time, I saw Command strips at the dollar store. They had

  • two small ones, two to a pack for small ones and then one to a pack for large ones and

  • I looked – I was comparing the price to see if this was a good deal and it seems like

  • it’s like the same deal at Walmart and the same deal online. So it’s not really a better

  • deal but if youre at the dollar store and you need a Command strip, some Dollar Trees

  • have them.

  • All right. The next thing was fabric tape. So I only found this at one dollar store.

  • It’s fabric tape. I guess you use it for fabric but I use this in the bathroom for

  • organizing something which I will show you in an upcoming video. It works great. It is

  • so sticky. It doesn’t peel. It’s actually hard to peel off and it comes in fun, cute

  • patterns.

  • So I will show you that when we get to the bathroom. All right. They also had washi tape

  • that was Scotch brand. I have Scotch brand washi tape, a bigger roll, and it sticks so

  • well. It’s easy to peel off and it comes in fun patterns and colors.

  • All right. So this next thing is a – it’s like a cake pan, lasagna pan that I saw at

  • the dollar store and it comes in colors. Like the top is a color. The top is purple. It

  • also comes in pink. I saw it. I was like you could totally do this for sorting papers or

  • for craft supplies or for something light because these things aren’t very sturdy.

  • But for some reason when you put the top on the bottom, it becomes like super sturdy.

  • So anyway, this comes in purple and pink. If you don’t want to use this as a cake

  • pan, you could totally use it for papers, anything light and everything else I just
