When you read that word, do you cringe? Or are you like me? When I think of organizing, I do a little happy dance in my head.
I love organizing, and making list. And organizing my lists. . . it's a sickness really.
Now that Christmas is over and packed away, I am in cleaning and organizing mode. I love it when I find organizing tips or products that help me organize all of our stuff. Especially kid stuff. Because it has a way of taking over my world. I actually got this idea from a neighbor a long time ago. Can't believe I've never shared it before. Because it is simple, but so amazing. It all started when we called and asked to borrow a few movies to entertain a sick kiddo. They gave us a little zippered case of DVDs. I'd never seen anything like it. Almost 100 movies in a tiny little case. I was amazed. And delighted. And jealous. I wanted one right that minute. Because our stash of movies looked something like this:
I had organized them before, but they had outgrown the bins and were spilling out everywhere. So I went out and bought a couple of these organizing cases:
I bought mine at Shopko if I remember right, but I've seen them in just about every store that has an electronics section. At first it was a little hard to throw away all those DVD covers, but I quickly got over it and I can assure you that we don't miss them AT ALL! Because now all the movies fit in a tiny little space:
We bought one case for the little kid movies, and another one for the teen/adult movies. I love how streamlined they look. And check out all that extra storage space! Makes my little heart go pitter patter.
Are you organizing anything this week? I'd love to hear your ideas and tips!
