If you’ve been reading the blog for any amount of time, you know how much I LOVE organization! I don’t mind organizing just about anything – something I’ve organized countless times before or a brand new challenge – I care not! Bring it on! But, I have to say, two of my favorite organizing tools are boxes and baskets.
Why, you ask? Okay, so you didn’t ask, but I’m gonna tell you anyways!
1. They’re great for cubbies! (This is from my home office)
I did a post a while back about the brand new Container Store that came to my neck of the woods – remember that one?
While I LOVE The Container Store, they are not always as cost-effective as specific projects require. When I’m working on something like I’m working on now (I’ll reveal once it’s complete, no worries!) and I need more items than normal, I don’t necessarily want to spend upwards of $10 for one container.
I often purchase things that may only be used once or twice at the Dollar Tree – items for centerpiece bases for parties, baskets for give-aways, gift boxes, etc. So I was aware that they probably had what I needed for this particular project, but when I walked in, they had MORE than I needed.
Well, I didn’t need any hangers, but if I did I think I could have them a different color for every day of the week!
