Find of the Week:
Keep things neat and
hidden while adding a little class to your front closet shelves
with fabric storage baskets. These were three bucks each at
Dollarama and are generously sized at 13 by 10 by 7 -
See past Finds here.
Label your closet bins
using pictures, rather than writing on labels. Stickers work well.
For instance, if you have dog gear in one basket, like I do, you
can always find stickers with dogs on them. Or, if you can draw or
have a talented relative in your family, put a hand-drawn picture
on the label. In my case, my son Curtis helped me label the bin
with extra hats and gloves in it and made another label that
designates all things related to shoes, such as laces, polishes
and spray protectors.
Keeping such things
all in one place makes them easy to find when you need them.
