How To Thursday - Creative Organization Courtesy of Redbook

Have you ever arrived at the hairdressers or dentist a tad bit early, not because you are overly eager to sit in either chair but really want to read all the magazines piled up? Well recently that was me! I flipped through a Redbook and you know what? They had some really great organizing tips and a few that were creative. Now I don't know about you but if organization is creative project, than it just might be fun!


This is a fantastic welcome to any home and with all the storage possibilities one can almost be sure to stay on top of the clutter (yes I am convincing myself here...)! Below are the sources with a few of my own added in just to spice it up!


The traditional Lattice design is great but I also really like the above version of the Algerian.
Carrie Basket $39 perfect for magazines separated by catalogs, shelter and just for fun
3 seat storage bench $109, I chose a smaller bench perfect for my size apt.
Large Tribeca Storage Bins $11.99 these bins are a great price and I might just mix it up using the cocoa option



This could very well be my lifesaver! Lingerie Dividers from Organize $8 for 6. The perfect way to keep anything organized even if it is a draw full of crafting utensils!

What creative organization tips have you used in your own home?

oh. I love that bench. I just looked. Only ships in the states! (dang). :) But I am going to print it off and take a look around to find something similar. I like the two-basket/cubby hole version too. Very nice.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who looks forward to appointments just so I can read the magazines! My hair salon has THE best collection of mags.
And I love the green baskets in the top photo. I actually have the black version for my bike!
