I'm not a very organized person. I'm slowly trying to make changes to help the clutter and choas in our home. I recently downloaded a free book on Amazon called Organized Simplicity. I probably won't read it, but the product description was very motivating. It read:
Simplicity isn't about what you give up. It's about what you gain. When you remove the things that don't matter to you, you are free to focus on only the things that are meaningful to you.
In come the buckets and containers. The above baskets I got a few weeks ago. I wish they were pretty girly colors, but they will serve their purpose for now. I have placed one on each of my daughter's dressers for lost socks. After mating socks, the leftovers will go in the appropriate girl's basket with the hopes that it's mate will show up. You can buy these types of baskets cheap from the $1 store, but I'm to cheap for even that. So, I keep picking them up at the GW Outlet and I plan on snagging them up at garage sales. Next goal is to get our pantry stocked with them.
