Wondering how to look good and keep it all together? TODAY style editor Bobbie Thomas shares smart ideas for lugging your stuff around and keeping your items organized at home:

Yoke Shopper
Whether you live in the city or the suburbs, everyone has experienced the red fingers and frustration that come along with toting heavy shopping bags. Enter the “Yoke Shopper” — an attachable shoulder strap that’s designed to help you carry multiple bags with ease. Perfect for groceries and running errands, the Yoke keeps you comfortable so you can continue shopping and keep your hands free for other tasks like opening doors and reaching for keys. ($18; Yokeshopper.com)

iPlunge
Sometimes it takes a simple solution to solve a high-tech problem. The iPlunge, as its name suggests, is a tiny plunger that attaches to the back of your cell phone, iPhone, iPod or Blackberry, allowing you to prop it up on your desk or table. The cute and clever design will display your screen so you can watch videos, view messages or easily screen incoming calls. And if you’re more of an animal lover, there is also a moose head option.

P-Hooks
Book and magazine lovers like me know how difficult it can be to quickly find your favorites on an overcrowded shelf. So clever minds devised the P-Hook, a simple bookmarklike item that helps you pull out wedged-in titles. The hooks come in an assortment of bright, cheery colors, making them useful for color-coding and marking special issues, quotes or passages at home or in the office.
