1. Set of 3 Wall Mounted Rustic Organizer - https://amzn.to/2E5qDic
My teen daughters have all sorts of paper clutter...homework, magazines, school files, letters, and receipts, and these organizers are perfect for getting all of it organized! What I love the most is that they come with erasable chalkboard labels so you can customize them! What a stylish way to stay organized!
2. Extra Large Storage Baskets - https://amzn.to/2E6sOCm
This large, cotton, woven storage bin will insure that your teen isn't a "basket-case" (My apologies, I can't resist a pun!). All kid spaces whether it's a bedroom, game room or playroom, need a place to store those big, bulky items....blankets, pillows, stuffed animals, (boyfriends)! All of it will look so much more organized in one of these storage baskets. I totally dig that they have several style options to match your teen's room color palette too!
3. Bedside Storage Pocket Caddy Organizer - https://amzn.to/2DDEpHI My kids spend A TON of time in bed...it's their top location choice for reading (Ha! As if...but it sounds good!), watching Youtube and Netflix, studying, playing video games, pretty much everything!
So this bedside fabric pocket caddy is ideal for their bedrooms because the 4 Pockets can hold water bottles, books, magazines, remotes, iPads, phones, earphones, pencils. It's so darn versatile and super simple to install by sliding the steel frame between the mattress and box spring or bed frame. It's more than handy so you just may need to buy one for yourself too!!
4. Wall/Door Mounted Jewelry Cabinet Armoire - https://amzn.to/2I9MUzG
My two teen daughters have quite a bit of jewelry and find it challenging to keep it all neatly organized. I mean tangled necklaces are the worst!! This jewelry cabinet can be hung on a wall or a door and makes it so easy to keep all those accessories tidy! What's even better...this is an organizing product they can use their whole life past their teenage years... dang, I wish I had this back in the day!
5. Electronics Charging Station - https://amzn.to/2GCggEe
It's no secret that teenagers and electronics go hand in hand, and the lack of electronics and phone cords is ALWAYS a source of disagreements in our house! That problem is solved with this electronics charging station!! It is available in a variety of colors and even comes with 5 charging cables, so there's no more need for cord dis-cord. (Pun #2, I'm on a roll!)

8. 12-Shelf Display Rack Bookcase - https://amzn.to/2X017CH
You get so much bang for your buck with this display rack because it allows such a large storage area for books, magazines, toys, photo frames, plants, and artwork.
