Using Packing Cubes to Harmonize Your Home

The key to maintaining our traveler spirit is a well-organized living space that restores focus and calm between adventures. Habits of process and preparation won’t preclude spontaneity, they’ll actually invite it. The more our home is designed and organized with our needs in mind, the more brain space we can devote to random excursions and fantastic plans. Plus, when those plans go awry and we have to cope with the uncertainty of our connected world, a tidy home keeps us moored. These are some of the key strategies we’ve picked up on our journey that give us a home always worth returning to.

1. Compress, don’t stress

Allowing things that aren’t in use to take up more room than they need invades the harmony of a space and also just makes things look messy. We use Compression Cubes to bring our bulky clothes down to a more manageable size and keep them out of sight. Shop Compression Cubes →

2. Don’t forget your values

Doing right by the planet is incredibly important to us, which means that every time we make a more sustainable choice in our home—not using single use plastics, using our packing solutions made from recycled water bottles—our peace of mind increases. When your living space is an accurate reflection of your values, it becomes an internal-conflict-free zone. Shop the Sustainable Collection →

3. Personalization: efficient, not selfish

It’s tempting to think everyone in a household will immediately understand and participate in your organization system. It’s a more trustworthy strategy to make sure organizers are labeled with their owner or purpose. Use monograms and color-coding to make it easier on everyone, most especially you.

4. Choose the shoes

Our shoes are some of the first items to become an unruly pile if we’re not careful, often because the area we designate for them can’t accommodate shoes for a full household. Choose the shoes that are on heaviest rotation to stay by the door where it’s convenient and store the rest into Shoe Cubes for a later day. When mood strikes or seasons change, just swap a pair and create a new rotation. Shop the Shoe Cube Duo →

5. When in doubt, consult KonMari

All hail Marie Kondo. One of our favorite insights from using her method is that a small closet is never as small as it seems. Pull everything out of the closet, place it onto the bed, and keep only what really matters. Honor the item by folding and placing it carefully into a packing cube. Clutter is gone. We just felt a spark of joy! Shop the Packing Cube Quad →

6. Get creative

Don’t get too caught up in a product’s original intended use. If it works, it works. Transparent cosmetics cases like our See-All Bundle are perfect as organizers for jewelry, scarves, and other small items in your drawers. Small packing cubes are an excellent way to keep your cords from becoming one giant kabelsalat (the German word for a “jumble of wires.” It means “cable-salad”). Shop the See-Alls →
