Bins

My little bins arrived yesterday from the Container Store. These are their "Accessory Boxes" and they are 7-1/2" x 6-1/2" x 3-5/8" high. I ordered 12. I have sorted them by color, as you can see.This was a great idea. As I sorted through, I kept finding things that shouldn't be there. Usable 2-1/2" strips 42" wide, etc. Now when I want something, it will be easy to find.I knew I would need more than 12 boxes, but I wasn't sure just how many, so just ordered 12. These are Brown, Black, Black & White, White (need one for Creams), Yellow, Orange, Red, Pink, Purple (need one for Lavenders), Dark Blues, Light Blues (need one for Teals) and Green. I also need ones for "Acid" Greens, Golds, Novelty prints and what I call "Multis."

I am really happy.

Tomorrow... S is for Slither...

I am totally crazy for rainbow organization and have all of my scraps into lovely color-coordinated bins. Recently though I've been wondering about just dumping them all into one big bin. So many others seem to do this that I was beginning to feel a bit lame with my colored bins. But, your post has given me pause. Maybe some of us just work better that way!
