Why is it that when someone thinks about organizing their home they think that they have to stick a lot of money into it in order to do it the right way?
When it comes to storage, there isn't any right or wrong way of doing things or choosing the things you want to use. Sometimes a cardboard box works better than a plastic storage container, especially if the amount that is stored in that box changes frequently.
Here's an idea of what I mean:
Instead of a Label maker, use index cards
Instead of Plastic containers, use cardboard boxes
Instead of Plastic hangers, use wire hangers
Instead of Plastic shoe boxes, use cardboard shoeboxes
Instead of Plastic drawer dividers, use cut poster board
See, organizing can be inexpensive to do just by using the things that you already own.
