Confession: Instead of making good on our spring-cleaning plans last weekend, we sat behind our iMac screens pinning photos of pristine pads. Then, we realized that all of those 2-D dream digs had one thing in common: tidiness. What we needed were the appropriate tools to make over our own homes!
So, we made ourselves useful and searched the web for 20 nifty items that'll do the organizing for us. Whether it's that migraine-inducing tangle of cords or the always-disappearing remote, we've discovered the absolute must-haves for getting things as neat as a pin. Home improvements with minimal lifting? Martha Stewart, watch out!
