I love being organized...

This is the time of year when we all start to look around for ways to improve upon our storage or organizational methods.

Although I don't have a space in my home where I could use this idea, I still love the way it looks. And, I love that big T (I wonder why)!!


This idea is charming because it's so original and I like the idea of re-purposing items that might be on their way to the dumpster.


Now this is very clever and I do have a spot where I could do this!


This is a great idea since it could go behind a door. I could use it for patterns and books. I think it would even be very easy to make this from scratch. Another possibility!


Giftwrap storage...it's always a problem for me, but this is a clever solution if you don't have mountains of stuff, like I do. I actually think the solution to my giftwrap storage is to sell it all in a garage sale! LOL


Here's another idea I'm going to try. I do have ribbon that I need to keep organized and this is a great idea since it shows off the ribbon at the same time allowing it to be easily accessed.


Hope this inspired you, if you weren't already!

Ahhh, the sweet smell of organization! I love all the ideas, but I really like the idea for the ribbons.

Those organizer companies sure know how to grab you, don't they?

I always start with the best of intentions and then kind of fizzle out.

the last house we owned had a shallow book/magazine shelf behind the kitchen door almost exactly like the one in your photo! I kept cookbooks there, mostly. It was a real pain to paint the one time we tried...

I like to be organized too but that usually means stick it in a drawer or tote so I don't have to dust it LOL.

Don't you just love the idea of being organized? It's almost more fun to clean up the clutter than it is to create something new out of it! These are great ideas -- thanks for sharing! (Where did you find them?)

Love all the organizational ideas. Wouldn't it be fun to have a designer come and build all those projects for us?
