Well, it’s still January and we are still organizing away over here! Actually, I’ve taken the past couple days off. I’ve really just been enjoying my days with Emily. We’ve been going on lots of walks, playing with all those Christmas toys, and even went on a picnic! The weather here in Florida has been incredible. Low to mid 70’s everyday! I love it!
Anyway….I need to get back into the swing of things with my organizing! I was thinking about some of the things I use to organize and some of the things I wish I had to organize with! So, I thought I’d put together a list of some of my favorite tools for organizing!
I don’t have this kit yet, but I am just itching to get one! I am horrible at scrapbooking and I think this would be the perfect thing to help me get all my photos organized and documented!
#2. Wire baskets
I just love these wire baskets! They easily contain clutter, but still allow you to see what’s inside. I actually just found a couple of these on clearance at Target for under $3!! Score!
I just love, love, love this little guy. So pretty! I will own this one day. Soon. I hope. Drooooollll!!!
Let me just tell you….I love this little guy!! It’s small footprint is perfect for storing. I label just about everything with this bad boy!
I have one of these strapped to the back of just about every door in my house!! Ok, not every door, but at least 3 of them! One actually holds shoes, one holds scarves, hats, mittens, etc, and the other holds cleaning supplies! They’re relatively cheap and pack a big storage punch!
#6. Storage Ottomans
Our ottomans don’t look like this, but they do provide a lot of storage! We have 2 storage ottomans pushed together in our family room so it looks like one big coffee table/ottoman! We love it. These ottomans hold everything from favorite magazines, to the Wii Fit board, remote controls, etc. These would even be great to throw some toys in for the little ones!
These little guys are so inexpensive and really are great for carrying around cleaners from room to room. I also use one of these to put all the craft supplies that I need for a project in. Unfortunately, I don’t have a room or even so much as a corner for my crafts so I keep a tote by where I store my craft stuff and I just throw all my project supplies in there.
I mean, this should almost go without saying, right?? Baskets are so key to organizing!! I literally have multiple baskets in just about every room to hide our
junk precious treasures! I also keep a basket at the bottom of the stairs to collect things that need to go upstairs!
What are some of your favorite tools for organizing? Anything you just can’t live without?
