I don’t know about you, but when my house (which doubles as a workspace, like so many) is cluttered and disorganized, it can be tough to be productive. But you know what’s also tough? Finding the time to clean and organize when I’m juggling all of the things. Basically, I’m overwhelmed by the mess with little time to do much about it. I’m always looking for some good, cheap hacks, and while admittedly searching Five Below for Squishmallows, I found some pretty stellar deals to pull my house together.
Because let’s face it, in addition to improving your mood and motivation, a clean and organized space can also have a positive impact on your health (I mean, so can a Squishmallow, but I digress). For example, when you’re organized, you’re less likely to forget to clean and maintain things, which can prevent the build-up of dirt, dust, and other allergens. Not to mention it’s just gross.

Five Below Cleaning & Organizing Buys to Get Your Home in Order
When looking for new additions to my cleaning and organization supplies, I always like to find things that can serve several purposes. It just makes me feel like I’m getting more bang for my buck. In some cases like a vacuum, the only thing it can do is, well, vacuum. But I also like to think it pulls double duty for saving my sanity.
Robotic Vacuum Cleaner with Color-Changing LED Lights, $25
As I am sure you are well aware, robotic vacuums are usually not this cheap. Typically you’ll pay at least $100, and that’s with a sale. Full disclosure: I have one of those schmancier vacuums that I use on the first floor of our house, It’s a life saver. I love the thing. My kids even nicknamed it Fred (why? I don’t know). Ever since I made the ill-fated decision to allow my sons to have snacks in their room, I have wanted an extra vacuum upstairs. Like, specifically for their room. I’m taking a chance on this guy ($25, Five Below) to whisk those chip crumbs away before I even see them on the floor.
Collapsible Storage Ottoman
Talk about a multifunctional piece. This Five Beyond storage ottoman ($15, Five Below) offers a solution to anything you want to tuck out of sight (toys, blankets, throw pillows — it can go anywhere). But it also serves as seating (max weight loading limit: 200 pounds). Even better, if you aren’t using it for some reason, it’s collapsible.

Pet Hammock Car Seat Cover, $12
Between kids and pets, my mess runneth over … straight to my car. I like that this pet hammock ($12, Five Below) protects the car seats and has a universal fit. I still need to vacuum out the Goldfish cracker crumbs my toddler leaves behind, but at least the seats are safe from pet hair.
4-Count Stackable Storage Boxes Set, $10
Tetris these stackable storage boxes ($10, Five Below) however you like, but they can accommodate so many different things. If you like to give each pair of your shoes a home, these are great for that. But I like them for corralling my kids’ art supplies and also for organizing the 4-year-old’s toys (it helps us keep Bluey figures in one box, with the Gabby’s Dollhouse characters in another, etc). I’ve also found uses for the set in my pantry.
Toy Hammock, $5
Whoever came up with the toy hammock ($5, Five Below) is a gosh darn genius. You can use it in an empty corner to keep all of those beloved stuffies off of the floor. My daughter likes to say they’re relaxing. If you want to make this really multifunctional, you could also repurpose the hammock to hold towels (though check the weight of them to make sure it doesn’t fall to the floor).
Alchemy Living 5-Pack Lint Rollers, $4
Listen, never underestimate the power of a lint roller ($4, Five Below). It doesn’t just clean lint off of clothing; you can use a lint roller to remove debris from car seats, clean a lamp shade, pick up broken glass, and even lift glitter. For all of these reasons, I like to keep lint rollers in different parts of the house and always one in the car. So the fact that there are five in this pack is super helpful.
3-Ounce Locking Mini Spray Bottle, $1
Similar to the lint rollers, these mini-sized spray bottles ($1, Five Below) are like little cleaning heroes you can keep anywhere. Fill them with your go-to cleaning solution (and label it) to stash around the house for quick cleanups in a pinch.
