I visited Target again today and couldn’t resist looking at the $1-$3 section. Here are some great organizing tools I found for you:
Top left-A small tray (available in various colors) is great for keys and change by the door. It’s also great to corral all those little office supplies, batteries or even kids’ toys. They are also great as a place to put things found in the washing machine and pockets. For $1 you can buy a few.
Top right-small clipboard. Hang these via Commend Hooks and always know where your shopping and to do lists are. They are cute so kids will love them too.
Left-These little glass jars can hold paper clips, thumb tacks and other small items that seem to get messy and clutter a desk. They are also a cute way to store items of meaning such as sand from a vacation.
Middle-Twine. With lots of colors available you can color code items for kids, tie items together or even color code hangers in a closet. These are also great for crafting and wrapping.
Right-Yes, this holds pills. BUT it’s also great for spare buttons. I also like to use them for earrings and other small jewelry when I travel. If you have hearing aid wearers in your home, fill this with extra batteries.
Bottom Left-This is a plastic file holder. Nothing super fancy, but it’s adorable. Bright patterns mean happy users. AND, it’s not often you find cute design like this for a $1.
Bottom Right-Mason jars. These are $1.50 a piece, sold in a pack of two. BUT they can be used endlessly. I keep one on my desk filled with doggie treats and more will office supplies. Prevent craft supplies from drying out in jars and keep food and snacks fresh. They also look great filled with flowers-a very inexpensive vase ready to give and receive. Use these to pack your salads every day or to give a neighbor baked goods.
