A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING AND EVERYTHING IN IT'S PLACE

While growing up I heard this a hundred times.

Here are my storage bins.

No longer do I hunt for a rotary cutter or scissors (I guess some of you thought I didn't have enough)? This is so wonderful, it has restored some sort of organization to my sewing room. I am trying to get rid of alot of things....I can't stand clutter......but I can clutter up a space in no time flat.....I guess sometimes I am my own worst enemy.

Today I am going to rat out my husband.....well...not really rat...praise him.

Never have I had to empty his pockets, pick his clothes off the floor. He does not make messes (maybe in the kitchen with crumbs....or dishes).....he does not clutter things. If you were to see his side of the bathroom you would wonder if someone was there...but if you looked at mine....(oh....my....I guess I am ratting out myself....). I will stop while I am ahead.

Those are terrific bins--almost a quilt in themselves. And, good job choosing a husband. And he must not mind you and your ways too much because he keeps you and doesn't seem to be suffering from the decision.

Nice storage bin.

Marydon said...

Would you mind sending your hubby over to teach mine a thing or two? Maybe he'd listen better to a man. Chuckle!

Love organization ... great cart. I have a couple similar.

Have a beautiful day ~

Sounds like my husband, neat and tidy. The way I see it they make us look "bad" but I think we are really normal.

I love those bins. I have seen them at the store but always put it off. I think it is time I get a set too.

Before I had a designated sewing area when the house was finally clean I'd mess it up in a heartbeat and pull out my sewing. It's like I couldn't stand it too clean. I've always called it rebelling against my mom's incredibly clean house but maybe like you I was my own worst enemy. You'll love being able to always find your things now. Baby steps.....

Love the storage bin. I don't like clutter either but I sure can make a mess! We have a brand new Joanns. I should go look for one of these!

Great storage bins! Love the rainbow colours. 'A place for everything and everything in its place' - that's what I need.

Joanne Lendaro said...

LOVE the colorful drawers!! I was just noticing how hubbies side of the bathroom mirror is always clean...mine, not so much! Why? Mine is a keeper too, he washes dishes, dusts and will vacumn.

I hsve lived with roommates both in college and early in my work life. I find that I am as neat or as messy as the roommate. Now I live alone and see that I really need a NEAT roommate! ha ha.

Debi said...

I have those bins also and they are fantastic. Looking forward to next week!

Crispy said...

I love your bins!! Could your hubby give mine a blood transfusion....maybe mine will get the tidy gene that way LOL. The only time he cleans is right before I get home from a trip. I would really hate to see what the house looks like before :0)

Barbara said...

LOL -- opposites do indeed attract each other!

I saw those same bins and almost bought one for myself! My hubby is also neater than me. He puts up with my messiness though so bless him for that!

Sheila said...

Thanks for the smile Barb ,and I hate clutter too but am guilty of creating it on more than one occasion.

Royce said...

Love the colors of the drawers. That would help me to remember what was in each one. Being organized isn't easy, but it sure is nice.

sewmeow said...

Great for you to be soooooo organized and love your new bins. Sigh......I'm too messy to stay organized.

SewCalGal said...

Very nice storage bins. Love the cheerful colors. I'm going to go try to organize. You've inspired me.

I like these colored bins better than the plain white ones. Gives the room some added color and fun.

Your Husband is a keeper. I told my Husband and kids a long time ago, if you leave things in your pockets then they will go through the wash. I never remember to check pockets.

Mistea said...

Love your new organisation. Sure you will be able to find what you need to get stitching now.
Enjoy your cheerful drawers.

Margarita said...

I have looked at these draws so often, I wonder are they stable or do they rock? And are the drawers easy to pull in and out. I would be interested to know whether you think they are big enough?
Maybe I should just go buy some.
