Organizing Bins

As much as I love to organize, I am equally budget conscientious. You do NOT have to invest in pricey containers to organize your stuff! I reuse containers all the time! Here are some of my favorite ideas!

Washed out kitty litter containers are great to sort my sons’ toys. They have lids and stack well too!
I use fruit cups for crackers, nuts and other little snacks for my kids. {They are especially great in the summer when you go out and about! Just grab and go and who cares if they don’t come back home}
Food containers like the ones from store bought cakes are for lids and tea:

I use old biscotti containers to hold my flour and sugar.
And the plastic tray in cookies {like Girl Scout Samoa cookies} holds washi tape perfectly!

I am sure I have many other containers in my cupboards but that’s just a sampling! Even better than recycling is reusing and multi-purposing your plastic!

Happy organizing,

Canadian by birth, living in the USA by choice... I am a wife, full-time homemaker and mom of three. I enjoy bible studies, cardmaking, reading, photography, simple recipes, music, and organizing. I may not always get my dishes done, cards mailed out on time or use my camera in manual mode but I try - hence it being my endeavor! You will find a little bit of all that interests me on my APE blog {hey - I like gorillas!}:
