One obstacle that one of my readers mentioned to me last week was that organizing advice often starts with buying something! While it can be fun to browse through organizing eye candy, it’s hard on the wallet and it’s certainly not necessary.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money for useful and attractive containers to organize your home. In fact, you probably already have suitable containers at home.
In this video, I’m sharing some of my favorite free and recycled containers with you.
Key tips for finding and using free containers for organizing:
- Sturdy food containers like coffee cans and large screw-top jars make great recycled containers.
- Baskets and Mason jars are easily found at thrift stores and yard sales and add a nice touch.
- Tote bags and drawstring backpacks make great containers as well.
- Your first organizing goal should be convenience; if there’s time to make it look pretty, go for it, but don’t let that bog you down or keep you from organizing in the first place.
I hope you enjoyed this video tutorial – I had a lot of fun making it! It only took 4 tries 🙂 Would you like to see more videos on organizing?
