An Organized Life…Is A Good Life

061

As the new year begins, we all start to think about how to organize our lives. As many of my readers know, I love to organize and have everything in it’s own place. However, even I’m embarrassed to admit how excited I was when I realized the organizational potential of my trash can.

I purchased this basket at The Container Store to hold our recycling way back in early 2010. It came with a second bin and I wasn’t sure how to use it, so I placed it under my desk in our home office and used it as a trash can.

As we were putting our house back together again after Christmas, I needed a place to store my extra yarn and needles that had been laying in a plastic bag by our den sofa for a long time (much to the chagrin of my husband.) As I looked around our home, my eye caught the basket under my desk, and I realized it’s potential.

It is wide enough to hold lots of my yarn…

As you’re working to organize your life, take a look around and see what new uses you can find for things you already own. It saves money and is a great way to go green!!
