Organization is one of the biggest words when it comes to our homes, and especially when we have company (kids, husbands, boyfriends – and in-laws), we tend to see things out of place more than we truly plan to. Sometimes it is hard to get things in place without a proper plan. To execute such a plan we sometime need to go out of our way to get the right things to make the proper organization truly happen. Money is not laying around everywhere so we have to be careful of the plans we make so we do not go over budget and then stress over the money we spend.
Lets go shop at the Dollar store and see what we can find to make our homes look just the way we want.
Labels, Labels- Labels
Okay everyone, the first on our list to get at the dollar store are labels. These are super useful for all areas and sections of our homes. Everything needs a little label in order to keep organization up to par. You will need them for pantry containers, storage baskets, storage bins, DIY cleaning products, DIY body care products and all sorts of containers that will help to make your home spic and span. In essence they make things so much easier and prevent mistakes and unfortunate mishaps.
The Lazy Susan Effect for Your Pantry
This ides is totally genius for storing jars and small containers. To create this grab two cake pans at the dollar store and some marbles. Put about six marbles in one of the pans and place the other pan on top of the marbles.
