Weekly Finds

I think I've mentioned on the blog a time or two or ten that the husband and I live in a home built in the 1930's.  While it has abundant character it is very low on storage space.  This gives me the excuse to fully embrace my container storage system addiction.  The husband lovingly calls it the basket system, since lots of my containers happen to be baskets.

Last week one of my work BFFs and I took a lunch time shopping trip.  Look at this lovely gem I found at Ross.

The bonus?  It was 12 bucks and some change and it's huge!

I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with it when I picked it up and had to have it, but it quickly came to me.  Enter my books to read bin in my bedroom which was then stashed in my Thirty-One storage bag that I like to use for the beach.

It is very cute and helpful large tote, but it didn't look very stylish under my dressing table.  It looked as if I had been reorganizing my room and was tired of my books falling off the shelf of my TV table; so I stashed them in this tote because it was handy and slid it under my dressing table until I could come up with something better.  Oh, wait.  That is what happened.  And it looked it.

Ahh, now it looks like I am maximizing my storage space with coordinating accessories.  I like this better.  Plus this container has firmer sides so it is easier to pull out to browse for my next great read.

Don't you just love organizing?
