The word either makes you grimace or smile.
You’re either someone with an alphabetized spice rack or a pile of shoes inside your front door.
I happen to be a member of the alphabetized spice rack team; my closet is color coded, our shoes have cubbies, the milk can always be found on the top shelf right side, and there are always three clean towels waiting to be used in our bathroom.
This is precisely why I thought of you every time I emptied out an animal cracker container at church. My need for organization saw great potential in these cute, clear plastic containers that were FREE!
So I decided to start saving them.
And after I had collected a few, I took them home, printed some cute labels and Voila!
Our craft closet was organized!
And the great news is that you can have some too! I’ve used all the plastic bears I can, but we are really good at emptying them on a regular basis at church. Think of the possibilities you could do with them!
Plus, I’d be saving space in our recycling bin and you’d be getting FREE containers to help you organize. (We also have large cheeseball containers if you’re interested; we just don’t empty them as regularly). So, if you would like to have some of our bears, simply leave a comment letting us know how you would use them and I’ll be happy to save them for you!
Regardless of if it comes naturally or not, every one of us, out of necessity, organizes in some way. It may be with systematic processes or with “organized chaos.” Neither is right nor wrong; it’s just how God has wired each of us. I think we can learn a lot from each other, which is why we are offering this great give-a-way!
A member of our Bright Beginnings family has graciously offered to make a custom car organizer for our winner (you can check out her facebook page, The Makings of Melody, to see some of the adorable things she has made). All you have to do is leave a comment giving us your best organization tip. Let us know what works for your family and you might change the organizational life of another family in the process! It can be anything from how you plan and prep meals, to how you organize all those papers that come home from school, to your annual cleaning schedule (wait, people have those?!). We’ll keep the comments open all week, then draw a winner this Saturday (the 21st) from all the comments made!
I can’t wait to hear what great tips you all have for us!
