5 ways to organize.

today i am sharing my 5 favorite organizing ideas. i am certain that i am not the only one weeding through the toys in the playroom, kids bookshelves, scrap booking supplies, totes in the garage… now, to organize what is left!!

my all-time favorite EXPEDIT shelving from IKEA loaded down with filing, storage and pretty little boxes. i have a serious problem collecting storage bins, baskets, totes… now i am putting them on my mega shelf to contain the chaos & an animal head & uber-large letter too //

EXPEDIT ikea shelf full of totes & boxes!

via + add a little crate storage with a custom reclaimed crate found at this shop!

i may just have a small collection of cute little knobs that might just finally be used for hanging my growing collection of jewelry.. seriously… so so cute, right?

  1. My expedit is the best thing to ever happen to me. Furniture-wise, of course.

  2. ooooh that organization wall is a must! I just need to make some dang chalkboard paint already!

    Great ideas Aimee, thank you!!

  3. Love the crates! And I LOVE the knobs as jewelry holders– how pretty!

  4. Love the crates!!!!

  5. So timely! I pulled every last thing out of my office last week, sorted through, and gave away so much of it. Saturday we pulled up the carpet and cleaned the concrete. Today I am sealing the floors. New streamlined desk, lots of shelves, and a basket with a label FOR EVERYTHING will be going back in there. I have tried and failed so many times to get my things organized and I think I finally hit on a method I can follow. Thanks for sharing your ideas! Love those crates!
