new year organization

When I think of the new year, I always think of getting organized.  Love to start the year feeling like everything is in order.  On that note, I’ll share that my home is forever a work in progress.  The goal this month is to purge what is not necessary and organize what is left.  Found a few storage containers I love and wanted to share.


This pretty box set is great for storing all of your smaller goods on a shelf (labels, ribbon, notecards, etc.).  Mmmm, the little geometric pattern on the inside makes me happy.


These IKEA baskets are simple and crisp.  Great for mittens, extra hats, or baby’s toys organized on a shelf.  I might have to pick a set up for inside our laundry room shelves – love the off white.

I’m totally addicted to stripes.  Let’s say you have a white armoire, shelf, or console.  Two of these little bins would be adorable side by side inside an armoire or shelf for a pop.  Use three side by side under a console.  Black and white stripes are great just about anywhere.


Here’s a nice example of putting together organized storage in an armoire using several containers.



Of course I can never get enough jute baskets.  They’re everywhere in my house.  It’s a sickness.

Switching to a little more of a mod vibe, these storage cubes are seriously cute.  So versatile – would be handy next to a side chair for extra books or, once again, toys that find their way into the living room.  Can you tell I have stray toy problem?

Last but not least, this free printable is a great way to start that organizing to do list in style.  Love, love, love.


Happy Friday, friends!

    Thank you! I love everything being organized… and got a “new year organizing flash”. Wish everyhting could be done at once and would not take so much time. Love, love the jute baskets. I actually have some, bought on Mallorca, and since some time I have papers waiting in them to be filed.
