Spring is in the air, so it’s a great time to open the windows, bust out the broom, and give your life a top-to-bottom clean. We have the tools you need to organize your home, office, and even your schedule. So take a look at this not-so-typical list of must-haves to get a fresh start this spring.



For the Forgetfully Eco-Conscious

Think green! For the times you forget to bring a tote bag to the grocery store, you now have a place to store your plastic bags for reuse. The Simplehuman Grocery Bag Dispenser can be mounted to any wall or cabinet for a stylish way to reduce, reuse and recycle. 

Simplehuman Wall Mount, $13




For Old-School Cool 

Vinyl is back in style, so bust out your old records and give them a good clean so you can enjoy superior sound. The Okki Nokki record cleaning machine can thoroughly clean all of your records, and it looks cool too. 

Okki Nokki Record Cleaning Machine, $649




For Sleek Storage

Store food while maintaining clean, modern style. These glass storage jars are available in 5 different sizes, ideal for storing all kinds of foods. 

Grand Cru Glass Storage Jars, prices vary by size




For an Ultimate Clean

Give your space a deep clean with the Miele Compact C2 TotalCare vacuum – great for carpets, rugs and hardwood floors. With its sleek design, you’ll want to keep it on display even after you’re done. 

Miele Compact C2 TotalCare, $599




For Cancelling Distractions 

If there’s anything you absolutely need to get done, you can lock your distractions in the kSafe and open it when you’ve reached your goals. Lock your TV remote away and set the kSafe to open when your chores are done!

For Painless Paperwork

The amount of papers you can amass during the year gets overwhelming. Take some time this spring to shred and recycle what you don’t need, and file everything else somewhere safe. We recommend the TPS 3-drawer filing cabinet from CB2, available in 4 colours. File your paperwork out of sight and make these filing cabinets the centre of attention instead. 

TPS 3-drawer Filing Cabinet, $189




For Staying on the Same Page 

While you’re organizing your home, keep your family organized, too. The Cozi Family Organizer lets everyone in your house sync their calendars, a very handy tool for busy entrepreneurs that are juggling meetings and soccer games.

For the Green Thumb

Don’t forget about your outdoor space! Hang this Circle Pot outside for some added greenery and a touch of modern outside. 

The Circle Pot, $95




For Better Ambiance

These smart bulbs use 10% of the energy that a standard bulb would use and last up to 40,000 hours. Install a couple of these to go green and custom control your lighting through the touch of a smart phone. 

SMFX Smart Bulb, $50
