I had a couple of areas that were driving me nuts and decided it was time to do something about it. Why didn't I think of this before or take the time? It was so easy and now makes me breath a bit easier. First, my medicine cabinet in the kitchen was full with all of the wonderful holistic remedies that I read so much about, but it was almost impossible to find what I needed. These cheap little baskets fit perfect in the cupboard from Walmart for only 97 cents a piece. I have them organized into categories; cold remedies, allergies,bandaids, pain medication, etc. I love it! The second issue was with shoes. I am sure you know the drill. With seven pairs of feet in my house, we have too many shoes. I first put this shelf in the garage right by the door for them to put shoes on so they will not be in the house by the door. They keep the nice shoes in their closets. The shelf became piled high with shoes , spilling onto the ground so you couldn't even get into the garage. My 5 year old could never find his shoes before school. He was always missing one. I bought these cheap bins , one for each of them and it has worked out great. I have a big basket on the bottom for the dirty shoes, like cleats and river shoes. I have found that my children actually like organization and if they have a specific place to put something, chances are they will put it there. If there isn't a designated spot, things are lost, cluttered and disorganized. What a trip t walmart will do for a gal!
