I Organized My Toiletries {so can you!}

Oh boy am I happy or what!!   I am feeling so organized at this particular moment.

Take a look at this:


Sadly enough I do not have a before picture.  It wasn't horrible by any means, but nothing matched, and it just wasn't working for our family.

Last week I was getting ready for our big craft club event and realized that I needed labels on my kids' "wall pockets" and had been putting it off for several months now.  I quickly created these:



I could not be happier with them.  Then this week I spent some time helping a neighbor get her home organized, which then lit my own spark to get more organized!!

That's when the hall closet fell victim to my love affair of plastic totes and labels!

I quickly created labels in Microsoft Word,  similar to the kids name tags.  I printed them out on full sheets of label paper, and cut them out using my craft cutter.



Then I emptied the ENTIRE closet.  Nothing was left behind.  I also used this time to do a little spring cleaning, wiping down the shelves, dusting for cob webs, and even threw out a lot of stuff we don't use anymore.

I purchased the clear totes with red lids from on Amazon.  They come in a pack of 12,  however you can always get them individually.



I enjoyed this project way too much!  Who's next? 



 Once I got everything sorted and bins labeled, I moved down to re-stock my bedding bins.  I have had these since we remodeled and created this closet, and it will never change.  It works so much better having the bedding in bins, rather than trying to have them neatly stacked on the shelves.


The totes are from Ikea, and I picked up the chalkboard labels from the Dollar Tree.  Gotta love that!

OK, so wanna know the BEST part of this post??  I have created these labels for you to use too!!  For FREE!!!  All you need to do is click on the link below, and download the PDF!
