Organize with Thirty One

Today’s post is a re-print of a blog by the Joyful Organizer.  I LOVE her blogs and she has some great tips for all areas of your life.  This one talks about what else… two of my favorite Thirty One Gifts products.

The Joyful Organizer has been a fan of Thirty One Gifts for a while now…. Here are some ways to organize things that I commonly find in my client’s homes.  It’s not about replicating what I’m doing here, it’s about thinking about how you can make a difference in your own home and daily life.  Scroll down to enter to win a set of Oh Snap Bins (embroidery included!).OhSnapBin- joyful organizerI was able to try out a set of Oh Snap Bins.  The patterns range from whimsical and bright to subtle and sophisticated.  Each little bin has a set of snaps.  These come into play if you want to keep all the bins next to each other.  Snap them together and they will stay put.  Each bin also has a loop on it so you can hang it off of a bar or from a single hook.  Take a look at some of the things that would great in this set of totes.  Use them together or separately.  They are shown here on a Command Hook.

The next item I’m going to share with you is one of the greatest bargain’s in organizing products.  The Essential Storage Tote is just $28 and can be used for just about anything.  And I mean anything.  It’s made of a durable material that’s easy to clean, quick to dry and stands up to whatever you throw at it.  The nylon straps are easy to carry and the the base of this tote allows it to stand on it’s own and hold a lot of gear.  Here are some items that can be stored in this tote.  I had fun looking around to find things that were loose in the car, on the floor, etc.Essential-Tote - jyful organizer

Clockwise from top left:

Clothes-this makes a great mini laundry basket!  Awesome for little kids to carry around

Books-Library books going to and from the library….keeping them in one spot means you’re less likely to forget them.

Gym Bag-Since it’s open and fires quickly, this bag won’t stink!

Dog Gear-I put in my dogs’ life jackets…awesome after a salty swim!

Beach Bag-Towels and pails and sunscreen, go my!  It all fits in here.

Sports equipment-Store dirty, smelly gear that normally rolls around the car in one bing that’s easy to grab and bring to the field.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
