One Simple Thing-Containers

One of the most helpful techniques when organizing a space
is to find the appropriate container.

In the kitchen, drawer organizers help to corral like items
and make clean-up a breeze.

Adding shelving increases storage tenfold
and makes use of otherwise wasted space.

Jars are a sure-fire way to keep food fresh
while making it simple to see what you're seeking.

These racks allow for more space
inside the cabinet.

Cleaning supplies are easy to tote from room to room
in their own caddy.

Important papers and checklists can be found
in the family's household notebook,
which is kept in the kitchen.

Baskets in the linen closet
make towels and sheets a snap to keep track of.

Personal papers are color-coded in sturdy files.

Using what you have is the best way to get started.
Feel free to use unusual containers
(like this lunchbox).

These plastic drawers are meant for nuts, bolts and screws.
That doesn't mean that you can't repurpose them
to suit the needs of your household.
Lego storage!

Keeping like things together in one place,
in the most suitable container,
makes it easy to find what you need,
when you need it.
That way, there's more time
to do what ya want.

How much time could you save?
