Summer Organization & Giveaway Winner

I have spent the last couple of days organizing my craft closet... ugh.  I thought at the beginning of the year last year that I would just let the kids get what they needed and put things away... and yeah I learned my lesson on that one.  By the end of the year it was a mess.  I also learned the lesson to get ALL the containers you may need at Dollar Tree at the same time, don't think you will just go back on the same day and a group of rabid back to school teachers haven't cleaned them out... I am pretty happy with how it turned out and needless to say "No Kids Allowed" is the motto this year.  Here's a before and after pic of my little project:

I got the white containers at Big Lots for a dollar a piece.  I also took some scrap book paper and covered old icing cans, Pringle cans, and card boxes to get some different sized containers.  I think it looks pretty great myself!  I used some of the labels I have for free in my TpT store but printed them out smaller to fit on the boxes.

By the way, thank you to everyone who entered our giveaway.  It was pretty fun to read all the comments and see everyone enter.  Big thanks to all of the bloggers who helped us!

Here are the winners:

  9. Your closet looks SO good! I, unfortunately, have to wait for the teacher before me to move her stuff out so I can move mine in! Trust me, I've already measured and bought tubs to fit it! I love the idea of using different size and shape storage bins and cans. Such a good idea.
