It might as well be spring because I’ve been in cleaning mode since the start of the year. I mentioned in another post that my focus for the New Year is “less is more”, with the goal of removing unnecessary clutter from my life.
In addition to general cleaning, I’m really focusing on getting more organized. I spend a lot of time at home and things are piling up, especially in my workspace. I have a dedicated office, but I avoid using it because it’s like a hole— once I go in, it’s hard to get out.
Instead, I prefer to work in our dining area because it has a lot of light and I can see my family in the living room while I work. I have a makeshift office corner next to the dining table that’s a complete mess (not to mention an eyesore) … papers are piling up, boxes are scattered and nothing is organized. To make matters worse, one of our cats is using the cloth bins as his personal scratching post (grrrr….).
To get this area under control, I started by removing all the trash and unwanted items from my bins. I then went to my local Home Depot and purchased three small organizers from Rubbermaid’s All Access line.
As you can see, these containers are a lot different from the regular storage bins that you buy to store items in— Rubbermaid All Access containers have a clear drop front door that opens when stacked!
Take a look at my before and after.
Quite a different, right? I love how I can see what’s inside each of the containers— and the cat can’t scratch these! The top bin holds notebooks and paper for the printer, which fits perfectly on top ( a bonus!). The middle bin holds electronics and small review items. And the bottom bin houses all of those miscellaneous plugs and adapters that belong to something, which means I can never throw them out.
In addition to these small containers, Home Depot carries both a Large and Xtra Small size from Rubbermaid’s All Access Line.
Unfortunately, my store was sold out of the All Access Xtra Small organizers, but when they come back in stock I’m going to pick some up for my closet. The Xtra Small containers are completely clear with the same drop front door that opens when stacked. The size is perfect for shoes— up to a ladies size 12 with a 3-inch heel!
Open up the possibilities of easy access with Rubbermaid® All Access™ Organizers. The All Access™ line features a clear drop-down door so you can easily see and retrieve the items you want, even when they are stacked! Visit your local Home Depot to see why organization just got easier!
