'Tis the month to get organized, and if you are like me, then pretty much anything and everything needs organizing, especially after the holidays. I like for everything and anything to have a place, but even more, I like for my organizational pieces to provide both form and function. These 20 picks are all useful and pretty. Best of all, they are sure to help your place look its best.

Modern Desk Accessories - $19
Everything in its place makes for a very happy desk. I just know I'd be happy to have this set keeping all of my desktop essentials in order. The color is bright and cheery, and the lines are clean and simple. It's perfect for keeping the clutter at bay.
Arteriors Cinchwaist Gold Tray - $382
I love his pretty tray. The modern yet classic design would be perfect in a bathroom to neatly display your favorite perfumes and cosmetics.
Bennett Media Center - $2,167
This media center is beyond gorgeous. It would be a perfect place to hide unsightly cords and digital devices while beautifully displaying your TV.
Open Canvas Bins - $7.99
These canvas bins are my favorite. They are great for toy storage in a non-playroom. Best of all, they are functional and still pretty to look at.
P.E. Collection Gym Basket - $35
These have been on my organizational wish list for some time. They are great for a number of things, but I think they would be most happy housing gloves, hats and scarves.
Hejsan Yellow Notebook - GBP 4.25
Even our thoughts need a place to be stored. I'd love to store all of mine in this pretty notebook, or at least make a list or two in it.
Oversized Blackboard - GBP 95
One of the best ways to stay organized is to make lists. And lists that are right in front of you at all times are the best kind. I especially adore this chalkboard in the rustic wooden frame.
Natural Over Door Shoe Organizer - $14.95
I love these over-the-door shoe organizers for shoes, yes, but even more so for toys. They work great in toy rooms to hold Barbies and action figures. I'm hoping to get my hands on a few of these.
Vintage Printers Drawer Tray Shadow Box by Jolly Time One - $54
I have long loved vintage printers' trays. They seem to tell a story of days gone by. I think they are absolutely perfect for storing the little "this and that." I'd love one to keep special little keepsakes, or one in my office to hold pretty tapes, thread and crafty bits.
Signature Three-Ring Binder - $24
Pretty organization is perfection. These pretty three-ring binders from Russell+Hazel are always on my wish list. They have a beautiful linen spine and an outer rubber band to hold everything in place, and the inside cover does double duty as a dry-erase board. I'd like one in every color.
Knock Knock File Folders - $9
These cheeky file folders are a perfect place for everyday papers. I like file folders that don't have to be hidden away in a drawer.
Stackable Acrylic Drawer Organizers - $2.99
These clear acrylic drawer organizers are a favorite. They are great in the kitchen for your utensils, but I love them even more in the bathroom for sorting and styling my makeup.
BURKEN Jar with Lid, 74 oz. - $4.99
Everything looks better in glass jars. I'd love to get my hands on about 20 of these. Using these will make any pantry or cupboard look less cluttered and far more pretty.
Brady 4-Piece Double Bench Entryway System - $1,239
I want this in a bad way. If you have children, you have stuff — and a lot of it. These are a perfect catch-all for book bags, coats, gloves, sports pieces and anything else that makes its way into the house. I love the idea of having a place to put stuff the minute you walk in the door.
Linley Fabric Storage Ottoman - $349
An ottoman that can store blankets, kids toys, magazines and so on is a great way to organize and save space. This pretty one comes in a variety of colors, and I'd have no problem kicking my feet up to relax knowing the clutter was hidden away underneath them.
8inch Multi-Roll Tape Dispenser - $31
Happy tape makes me happy in every way. The possibilities are endless. This colorful tape is great for labeling file folders and color coordinating. However, my favorite use of this tape is creating a colorful little gallery wall with photos that are waiting to be framed using only your photos and this pretty tape.
kate spade tudor city large debra - $195
In a day where everything is digital, I still think one of the best ways to organize your days is with a datebook and pen. This sparkly one is sure to make you want to keep your schedule in tip-top shape.
Kids Magnet Strip Hooks - $19.95
I love hooks. They keep things like coats, towels and hats off the floor. These hooks are even better because they are magnetic. They would be perfect in a kids room or playroom to catch dress-up clothes and display art or school papers.
