I have never set foot in "The Container Store" (or the like) for fear that I would go completely bonkers and sign over my entire paycheck. I don't consider myself ultra-organized. My self-assessment is "B minus" - slightly above average with room for improvement. If only I bought some more "stuff" (containers, etc.), I could achieve organization nirvana. Right?
Probably not. For me, buying more containers isn't the answer - getting rid of stuff and making better use of the containers I already have typically works out fine.
Trust me, I'll set foot in The Container Store some day. I hope I'll have the sense to leave my credit cards at home. Until then, I'll stick with these "reusing theme" containers:
Milk jug holds tools (Ugly - keep hidden in basement)
Kleenex box keeps plastic bags organized (Ugly - keep hidden in drawer)
Baby food containers double as mini-containers for holding tomato paste (frozen) or spices.
No more babies. Planned.
Glass jars hold beans, rice, pasta (this one's a keeper - appealing purple top)
Anybody else have Container Store fever? Any tips for reusing items as containers?
