I am a self-proclaimed basket, tote, and container hoarding, organizing fool. I ♥ to organize. I get this from my mother. She has a basket for EVERYTHING. For instance, when we go visit and leave our keys on the bar, she puts them in the basket that is on the counter by the bar. If we can't find something of ours (keys, sunglasses, etc) at her house, we know to start looking in the strategically placed baskets around the house. David loves to make fun of the basket situation. Slowly but surely, I am turning into my mother. There is a place for everything and everything MUST be in its place. OCD much??
So, I am dedicating one post a week to just that: organizing. I will be sharing some of my organizing tips and ideas and also some before/afters for projects I take on at home.
I wanted to share this because it just makes me happy to open up the cabinet and see. I know. Weird. Don't judge! I recently won a Thirty-One Gifts tote from a blog giveaway. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it until I opened up my cabinet one day to get a band-aid and I had my first aid kit in a plastic basket (probably one I got from my Mom). I decided to "cuten" it up a little.
I believe this one is called the Littles Carry-All Caddy - Perfect!!
I had also purchased the Organizing Utility Tote a couple months later. I decided to use it for my emergency car kit.
See the Puma bag in the background? I ordered some shoes from Amazon (LOVE Amazon!) and Puma puts their boxes inside these bags. Instead of throwing it away, I put it in my car in case I ever have extremely muddy shoes and need somewhere to put them. You never know, right?!?!
Everything fits just lovely in it! I'm a huge fan of Thirty-One Gifts - I need to order more! I should just stick to the plastic baskets - they are way cheaper!
