      Want to declutter like a demon? Here are some items that might help you channel your inner neat freak.

      Bumerang hangers

      IKEA’s solid-wood hangers, $6.99 for an eight-pack, treat your clothes like the investment they are. These structured beauties can support even your heaviest jackets, and they boast a shoulder shaper for your slippiest blouses and most delicate sweaters.

      Honey-can-do 8-shelf organizer

      Battle clutter with this durable, hanging reinforced-fabric shelving that attaches to your closet rod and is roomy enough for winter sweaters. It collapses easily when the weather turns warm ($48.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond). Find the style in deep blue, black, white, and natural poly-cotton. Bonus: two fabric slide-in drawers for your socks, belts, or scarves.

      Top shelf organizer

      Rather than jamming your sweaters onto a too-hard-to-reach shelf, these ingenious little slide-out cloth shelves help you keep ’em folded like Marie Kondo would ($12.98 at Real Canadian Superstore).

      Bamboo Lazy Susan

      Washable and made from durable bamboo, this 14-inch rotating plate looks nice enough to use on your dining-room table. But stick it in your kitchen cupboard and you’ll be able to spin your way to spices, cooking oils, and utensils ($13.99 at Canadian Tire).
