Before & After
I had been searching for baskets or bins to use in my closet for a while now, but I wasn't willing to spend the asking price for the baskets and bins I was finding. It is pretty amazing how expensive pretty baskets/bins can be. Which is why, when Old Time Pottery had these baskets in their ad this week for $4.99 I jumped at the opportunity to go pick up a few. I bought 4 baskets and decided to use all 4 for a different purpose:
- Our master bedroom sheets (this bin holds 3 sets of King bedroom sheets, impressive!)
- Guest room sheets
- Misc. (stores mismatch pillow cases, and sheet sets that we use when we have company staying on an air mattress or in the man room)
- Products (full of travel shampoos, conditioners, tooth paste, etc.)
I had an old basket lying around that use to store Zoe's toys, but she has since outgrown that basket, so I used that basket to hold all of our extra rolls of toilet paper. I also used a hanger to hang our extra Duvet blanket from the bottom shelf.
I created these lovely labels using my AWESOME cricut that I got for Christmas, and I love the way they came out. I thought it would be great to use clothes pins and hot glue them to the basket to hold the labels, this will make the labels very easy to change and reduce all the sticky residue that a sticker label would create.
It is still not the most gorgeous linen closet in the world, but it is definitely a step in the right direction. It looks so much cleaner and organized in stead of just sheets and towels over flowing. I would love to get rid of the wire shelving but it will totally work for now. I organized this closet for under $25 and that totally makes me happy and the hubs!
