The first store I hit was Target....you can never go wrong (and can never leave without spending something)! I was touring the store for some good organization and storage solutions. Even though I absolutely LOVE The Container Store, I am really trying to keep my budget down in 2013 and find other storage solutions.
Who else always starts in the $1 section at Target!?? You can find some great ideas for a Fab price! I love these little metal buckets. They would be great for kids craft supplies or even an office space. Why not use the chalk label bucket to organize items in your pantry or linen closet?
My next stop is always the wrapping section. I know...weird right? But look at what I discovered. These wonderful boxes for a great price! These little beauties would be perfect for a master closet or little girls room! The possibilities are endless.
I still love me some chevron...don't care what anyone says. Especially in black and white! You could use these in any room of the house to organize magazines, toys, gloves, hats or school supplies.
These plastic tubs are wonderful! I have two of them that house my niece and nephew's toys. I have also used them for ice and drinks for summer parties at a nearby park.
sorry pic is blurry
I saw these canvas bins and baskets a couple of weeks ago. They are fantastic for linen closets or laundry spaces like mine.
I also used these plastic weave baskets in my laundry closet makeover last year. I had many compliments on these and where to find them....well they are back and so useful!
I then headed to the office supplies. I thought these little canvas drawers would be great in the Hub's office. They could help him organize all of his supplies and/or cords to electronics.
Oh Boy...my favorite find of the day. Did you know that Nate Berkus now has his own office line? Well...if it ain't Martha...Nate is the next best thing! I think they just came out with it this week because the shelves were stocked and I can't find any of these items online. I do love those gold and white striped cork and white boards. Aren't they fabulous? I can feel a DIY coming on.
My next stop was HomeGoods. Doesn't that place just make you Happy!? And how about these great cabinets in bright colors. For only $129!! They would be great in an office or entryway. They would give a little punch to a boring space.
Now...this leather ottoman is a great find. If my brother wasn't already building me a coffee table, I would have jumped on this. It has an ample amount of storage space for whatever! I know it is hard to see in the picture, but there is also a removable tray where you could store remotes, DVDs or Candy! It was a great soft linen color. Not bright white like the picture shows. Someone please go and buy it!!
Lots of Colors! These hangers are the Huggable kind. They are very thin, but durable. You can fit more clothes in your closet because they really save on space. I might have to try using these in my closet makeover. We need all the help we can get!
So what caught your eye? What are you going to run out and buy right now to help you with your 2013 organizing goals?
