This is my nicely organized game/kids craft cabinet in my hallway. Someday, I'm going to paint or re-stain the cabinet, but that's not what this post is about. I am helping a dear friend of mine organize her craft/gift closet and I wanted to show her what some great bins can do for a lot of otherwise hard to organize stuff. My six year old can grab a stool, climb up, and find exactly what he needs now that everything is in its proper place. I don't have a "before" picture, but trust me, it wasn't pretty, and both my son and I had trouble finding what we needed for play and craft time.
I've got art supplies, wooden "paper" dolls (the one labeled "Joey"), and even a couple of empty containers for when we need to expand.
I found these bins at Walmart and they are perfect for what I need. They come in a variety of sizes, range in price from $1.50 to $4.50, stack nicely on top of each other, and are easy to open and close. I hand labeled my bins with some stickers for quick glace, grab, and go access. My play food bin still needs a label. That's my newest addition to this cabinet....thanks Grandma!
Stay tuned for the craft/gift closet makeover. I'm so excited to organize that thing!
