Don’t take my word for it; I asked some of the most successful, well-respected, best-of-the-best professional organizers (organisers, with an “s” for those of you in the UK or down-under) and experts in their particular fields to name three of their most trusted, must-have, very favorite organizing tools and I’ve collected and posted their responses below.

One quick tip, before I begin — If you want several free, exceedingly detailed, and comprehensive lists, please consider enrolling in two classes I teach for the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) PO-001 and PO-104. Both classes are offered in live teleclass format (call-in, from your own phone) as well as on-demand (learn when it is convenient for you). PO-104 is designed for new and prospective professional organizers or organizers who may have missed some of the basics on how to start an organizing business.  These NAPO classes deliver a lot of bang for the buck: anecdotes, tips, techniques and suggestions for launching and growing your organizing business and, it includes several toolkits.

Below are tools,  that according to my successful organizing colleagues, are their very favorites.  It’s no surprise that most of these organizers prefer the most simple,  basic tools to help their clients get organized.
