Organization - The container store....

My hubby who is a neat freak person who loves things organized and neat is finally starting to rub off on me.

side note: we've been married for almost 3 years and dating/engaged for 4 years prior. Yes, I know, it took me like 7 years to get to this point!

Yes, I'm actually admitting that I need things more organized.

Yes, I'm actually admitting that my hubby is right.

And yes, I am actually admitting that I now have a wish list (and hopefully to be purchased soon as budget allows) at the container store! Who would have ever guessed that I would be drooling over pantry organizers, and on-the-door spice racks? Not me!

So I thought I'd share with you some things that will be in our house in the near future---or I hope will be!

The Spice Rack for on the door. We have a lovely area to put 2 or 3 of these awesome organizers. Yes, I'd like to completely redo my whole spice area just because it's always a headache to find what you need in the cupboard and put them back... I plan on getting all jars that are the same (the hubby is influencing me with the perfectionism) and make cute labels myself. We'll see how they turn out. I will have to make sure to have before and afters. ;)

In the same closet, I'd like to put up 1 or 2 of these Instant Mix Basket. This would be perfect for those pouches of Taco mixes/Onion soup mix. Then, I don't have to put them in my cupboard!

Now, I couldn't decide on which one I'd use. However, looking at the price difference and how many each can hold I think I would stick to getting the right one if I could fit it somewhere. The left one would fit in my tight spaces under the sink but it doesn't hold that many. Wow, such a dilemma! I'll just have to get back to you on this... ;) If I can get rid of all my saran wrap, bags, wax paper, etc out of a drawer, we could use it for something else! We only have 4 drawers in our kitchen and 1 drawer is full of this stuff... true story!

What a great way to store tea in the flip out bins organizer. I've been telling my hubby that I'd like to drink more tea... this may be the best way to organize them!

Who get's frustrated with their lids? I do, I do! This would be one solution.... with this lid organizer.

One of these has been on my radar for a long time. I'd love to put my olive oil in one of these. However, I can get them anywhere. ;)

 Last but not least is the under the bed storage box. We may be changing up our room, so that we have space under the bed...

So let's get started on the organizing!

How do YOU organize your things? Any ideas that work for you?

  1. I love those! I think you've inspired me as well :) I also have only 4 drawers in my kitchen, and 1 of them has all the foil and junk. I'd love to have an extra drawer for more important things. I can't wait to see your "after" :)
