1. Large storage boxes with lids: that's every room organised
These are the kind of storage boxes Marie Kondo wants you to have in your garage, loft or shed to keep all those big bits of clutter well organised. Think: all your kids' garden games in one; all your garden hand tools in another; all your family's archive photos in yet another. Why clear? Because the contents are easy to identify without the lids coming off; and lidded because they'll stack neatly. Sorted.

Really Useful storage box – was £20.96, now £12
We LOVE these 35 litre clear lidded boxes: the handles lock the lids in place to keep the contents secure, the recess in the lids enable the boxes to be stacked positively for increased rigidity and creates a safe storage area, and they're see through so you can see inside. Smaller, 19 litre boxes are on sale too, at £8.63 (RRP £11.99)View Deal
2. Garden storage – Marie Kondo your outdoor space
There's NO WAY Marie Kondo lets her garden storage get out of control. You know all those things that never find a home – from tools to garden furniture cushions. And we reckon even the smallest of gardens can have storage that's really useful and good looking for hiding away everything from tools to the lawnmower. Here are our favourite buys. We bet Ms Kondo's got similar at home.
Outdoor storage box: was £149.99, now £99.99 | Save £50
Garden Trading are renowned for making great garden products, and this small Aldsworth storage box is no exception. And at £50 off, it's a steal. Made from spruce and zinc. View Deal
3. Home office storage – Marie Kondo your home admin
Marie Kondo is very into putting lots of smaller items into categories and neatly filing them into dividers. So, in a drawer, you might have your lipsticks in one; or all your reading glasses in another; perhaps your coupons in another. In a home office, it's all about dividing paperwork in a paperwork divider. So, bills in one section, doctors' letters in another... You get the idea. We think Marie Kondo would approve of the expanding file below – it fits on a shelf or a desktop neatly.

Want to give your bedroom a decluttering boost? You'll need better storage. These two Prime Day clothing storage buys are ideal. They can be freestanding or hidden behind wardrobe doors or a curtain. The closet organiser will fit in a hallway, too, for brilliant shoe storage.

Woodluv retro bedside table: was £74.99, now £44.99
This neat (40cm x 40cm x 61.5cm) two drawer bedside table might be compact but it has tons of storage to keep your bedroom clutter free. But why limit it to bedrooms? We think it's perfect for living rooms, too. Needs assembly, but at that price, it's worth it.View Deal
5. Kitchen storage – organise, prioritise, mobilise
Practical shelving is a must-have in a kitchen that's getting cluttered. There are lots of ways you can improve your kitchen shelving: from shelf organisers to freestanding kitchen shelves that can stand in one corner and wheeled out when needed. So why not invest in a few shelf organisers, a freestanding shelf or two and some labelled jars? Marie Kondo would still say that you should keep what you use most often at the front, and relegate least used items to the back – but at least you'll be able to see them on an organiser.

6. A label maker – everything in its place
Not all storage boxes can be see-through, so if you've got a stack of neat lidded boxes in your kitchen – perhaps holding everything from vouchers to spice packets, you'll love a label maker to keep them well signposted. The Dymo is Amazon's best seller, but you can browse all Amazon's label makers now.

8. An air purifier – to declutter your home's air!
Marie Kondo really likes to declutter the air in her home (really). How does she do it? She opens her windows to let the fresh air in. But what if you've got a window that looks out on to a busy road, or you're going out for an hour or two, or the neighbour's having a bonfire or you have hayfever? Well, your next best option is an air purifier.
We've just reviewed Dyson's amazing Pure Hot + Cool, which is an air purifier, fan and heater. It's not cheap, but it is a three-in-one. The Vax ACAMV101 air purifier (above) has £20.99 off at the moment.

9. Tidy up with the best Prime Day cleaning product deals
What do you need to do when you've decluttered, cleared out drawers, sorted out a cupboard, pulled everything out of the loft? Have a good wipe round before it all goes back, that's what. Happily, we've scoured (get it?) Amazon for the best Prime Day cleaning product deals. From vacuums to e-cloths, you'll find all you need.

10. Marie Kondo's tidying up books... and a cut-price Kindle
Marie Kondo has penned a few books now, including her latest – a children's book that aims to spark an interest in tidying up in children. And her books are all discounted at the moment. Would she put her own books on her favourite buys list?
Well, maybe not. But we say, if you're going to go ahead and get a few copies yourself, download them on to your Kindle (great discounts on them, too). You don't want all those new books cluttering up your shelves. Ms Kondo would not approve of that. Ooooh joy would not be sparked by that.
