The lifestyle maven has good advice for everything — and the proof is in her new guide to chaos and clutter-free living: Martha Stewart's Organizing: The Manual for Bringing Order to Your Life, Home & Routines. Inspired by her homekeeping prowess, we've matched up her tips to products that can help you get — and stay — organized this year. — Megan O'Neill Melle

1. Divide and Conquer Listed as a "Martha Must," acrylic partitions, like the Clear Shelf Divider, keep sweaters and folded items in your closet from toppling over. $11, containerstore.com

2. Catch It Group like-items around the house using trays. The CB2 Burl Wood Tray can turn an ottoman or bench into a table for remotes and candles, while smaller catchalls can be used in entryways or on nightstands as caddies for keys and loose change. $50, cb2.com



3. Clear the Counter Keep the kitchen ingredients you use most often within reach, but update them in classic containers like the Marble Salt Keeper. $30, surlatable.com

4. Plant It Stewart gifts money plants, pilea peperomioides, on New Year's Day, as they're believed to bring prosperity. If you're into indoor greenery, the calendar portion of her book includes plant tips and tricks. For more help: The Leaf Supply Guide to Creating Your Indoor Jungle. $35, amazon.com

5. Camouflage It To dress up sink necessities, pour dishwashing soap into a more modern container, like the Sono Soap Dispenser. $32, allmodern.com

6. Hang It Up You won't see anything strewn about Stewart's floor! Be like Martha and utilize her organizing all-star: Shaker style peg rails for brooms and dustpans in utility rooms, jackets in the entryway and towels in the bathroom. FieldDayGoods' Objects Peg Rail is available in two lengths. $28–$36, etsy.com
