Organizing with Stackables!

So as you know, I have been slowly packing up the school year.  We still have until June 26th but slow and steady wins the race!  Besides I am getting the itch to just pack and go!!!  


Usually my packing goes well at the beginning and towards the end I just stuff things where there is room.  I wanted to avoid that this year because I tend to lose things and don't end up finding it until  I start packing again.  So this year I went on a hunt for some organizing bins.  I found this at  and decided to give it a try!





I got these tubs from Really Good Stuff.  They come in all different sizes.  I ordered the medium but and large.  These stackables come in 3 for 19.99.  If you order 3 or more sets, you get a great deal of 14.99.  I love me a sale!

 It's seriously perfect for what I'm packing and what's even better is they are stackable!  You can keep lining them up on top of one another and it will fit perfectly.  This is what my markers looked like before in a regular bin.





Yes.. it's messy and I actually forgot I had my markers in there so I didn't even use these markers this year.  I hate that!!  So I had to change this.









I organized them a bit and then tossed in my new stackables, along with some other bins and crafts.  This is how perfectly it lines up!  And I hope I don't forget they are in there this following year.



As you can see in my other bins, I have clothespins which I am always in need of and popsicle sticks.  

I can't wait to order more.  I  will need to buy labels and stick them on the stacks just to be extra organized and know where everything is!  


Look how it fits just perfectly in my closet.  




How do you organize your things at the end of the year?

  1. Oh lord. I try and try to organize, but I have no closets. And two shelves. And everything has to be off the windowsill...let me tell you, the amount of milk crates I bring from home to store things, then bring home at the end of the summer is ridiculous. I like those stacking crates...I think I could squeeze them in somewhere!

  2. I've become slightly obsessed with lovely boxes too this year. Just keep on buying more. Makes everything so much neater and easy to find though! You won't forget things now as everything can easily be seen!
