The Joyful Organizer has been a fan of Thirty One Gifts for a while now. They have some fun new products I wanted to share with you. I also wanted to inspire you. Here are some ways to organize things that I commonly find in my client’s homes. It’s not about replicating what I’m doing here, it’s about thinking about how you can make a difference in your own home and daily life. Scroll down to enter to win a set of Oh Snap Bins (embroidery included!).
I was able to try out a set of Oh Snap Bins. They come in a set of three small bins. The patterns range from whimsical and bright to subtle and sophisticated. At the time I’m writing this, there are seven to choose from. Each little bin has a set of snaps. These come into plan if you want to keep all the pins next to each other. Snap them together and they will stay put. Each bin also has a loop on it so you can hang it off of a bar or from a single hook. Take a look at some of the things that would great in this set of totes. Use them together or separately. They are shown here on a Command Hook.
The next item I’m going to share with you is one of the greatest bargain’s in organizing products. The Essential Storage Tote is just $28 and can be used for just about anything. And I mean anything. It’s made of a durable material that’s easy to clean, quick to dry and stands up to whatever you throw at it. The nylon straps are easy to carry and the the base of this tote allows it to stand on it’s own and hold a lot of gear. Here are some items that can be stored in this tote. I had fun looking around to find things that were loose in the car, on the floor, etc.
Clockwise from top left:
Clothes-this makes a great mini laundry basket! Awesome for little kids to carry around 🙂
Books-Library books going to and from the library….keeping them in one spot means you’re less likely to forget them.
Gym Bag-Since it’s open and fires quickly, this bag won’t stink!
Dog Gear-I put in my dogs’ life jackets…awesome after a salty swim!
Beach Bag-Towels and pails and sunscreen, go my! It all fits in here.
Sports equipment-Store dirty, smelly gear that normally rolls around the car in one bing that’s easy to grab and bring to the field.
