Just saw this in an email from The Container Store and think it is great! I go through phases of buying fresh fruit so it would be convenient to have a basket that I can use when I actually have fruit, but then can put it away when I don't! Well priced also!
I just got back from a lovely vacation in Arizona (landed at 5:45am this morning!) and was greeted by the piles of snow in Boston. I actually love big storms so was a bit sad to miss this one, but sitting by the pool in the sun was definitely nice! I got bumped to a later flight due to the storm, but I wasn't complaining about having an extra 24 hours in the sun! Here are some photos from the trip! I will post some other things soon!
A little while ago I changed how I kept my polos. I don't get to wear them much since I can't wear them to work so they are in the bottom drawer of my dresser. I gave a few away, but kept these ones and refolded/rolled them so they are each more visible rather than being in the usual piles. I could probably do with giving away a few more, but not just yet!
Rolling articles of clothes is a great way to make them more visible and they won't get such strong creases!
I decided I wanted to switch things up in my room a little so this weekend I reorganized my jewelry (I have tons) and was able to get rid of one jewelry holder. I like the holder and am keeping it for future use, but I was able to put the items from it into my jewelry armoire on the wall. By removing this jewelry holder I was able to create more space on my dresser, switched my jewelry mannequin to another spot in my room, then was able to shift a piece of furniture to make more space as you enter my bedroom.
I also bought these circle compartment boxes from The Container Store and put earrings and rings in them and am now able to see things more clearly and organize this jewelry box better!
There are some great kitchen appliances/gadgets on sale on Gilt City right now. Check them out here!
If you are someone who has a lot of bobby pins, hair bands, hair elastics etc. like me then this little container is a great storage solution. I like all the little compartments so the different pieces are separated. The clear box makes it easy to see what you have and when you are in a rush it is convenient to just grab from the closet! That stray piece of hair is then taken care of! You can purchase at The Container Store and there are different options available so you can buy a box that suits your particular needs!
Use your weekends for fun, relaxation and productivity! Simple changes in how you store or organize things can take a little amount of time, but can make a big difference in your productivity and time spent finding things. You can organize while watching the news or while you have laundry washing. Don't think just because you are organizing you can't be doing other things also!
Check out the sale at The Organizing Store! There are some great items!
So my mom spends a lot of time in Florida and I am happy that she wanted to bring this old shoe rack from my old bedroom down with her! We took it apart and she put it in her suitcase! You don't want to hoard things but you should be aware of certain items that can be used later down the road, for different purposes or use the parts for something else!
