I have a serious love of all things “container.” I find myself drawn to anything that can store something….. (possibly more than normal.)
jars, baskets,boxes, canisters, crates, files, bags
Tupperware, Rubbermaid, Sterilite,Ziploc
In wicker, plastic, wood, tin, glass, rubber, cloth, metal, cardboard
oh… I love it all.
( I can only say that IKEA is especially exciting for me because of this reason.)
With our family expanding on a daily basis, and our house seemingly shrinking on a daily basis, I am on a constant hunt for how to make our square footage work better for us… of course all while still keeping “décor” in mind. Things gotta look good right?
As we all know… life includes “stuff.” I would like to think that I am not one to hoard, but even being the willing and proud “tosser” that I am… we have 3 kids, we’ve been married for almost 10 years, there have been purchases, birthdays, Christmases, hand-me-downs and now… homeschooling… with all of that … we have stuff (or some may say “junk”)! And so the constant battle of organizing, weeding out, compacting, donating,storing, rearranging, minimizing and maximizing… and so forth and so forth.
With Rebekah’s most recent birthday, American Girl further invaded our house. And let’s be honest…this brand is pricey. Fun… but expensive. I wanted something to house all the shoes, tights, bows and dresses so that my girls had no question as to where to put everything away and so that we could attempt to keep our collection in good shape. (possibly for the next generation )
Truly this post is about nothing… except my desire to show you these…. ( Sometimes, we stay-at-home moms need to share the little things that make us happy. It breaks up the day. And since I am only getting an unenthusiastic “yah, cool mom” from my girls… I have to show my find to the two people that read my blog out there….. hi! Dad and Mom.)
Pretty fabric lined boxes… that zip and perfectly store all our new accessories..
and even better the dolls fit perfectly in there too! They were meant to be….
oh and they were on clearance! You are reading the rambling words of a happy lady!
I heart Marshalls.
One box for each of the girls “Bitty Twins” sets, one for the new “Rebecca” doll and one for the extras… each in pretty different patterns. Fun, right? …. right?
Thanks for indulging this slightly loony housewife. Happy housekeeping!
Now to find room for the boxes… oy..
