Do you ever find something that works for you 
and then you start buying more and more?

That's what happened when I discovered these bins from Target...

My Favorite White Storage Bins
I began by using them in my kitchen cabinet.  This is where we keep the medicines, first aid supplies and vitamins.  After renovating the kitchen last year, I needed to keep everything neat and orderly.  I also wanted something white to blend with the cabinets but would be easy to clean if I spilled something.  These bins worked out perfectly.

Kitchen Cabinet Organizing - Vitamin and First Aid Storage
I know, it's not very "blogger" of me to just write the labels on with a Sharpie, but I started with cute little stick-on tags that ended up falling off.  This works for now until I get motivated to come up with something else!

White Storage Bins in Pantry
I also use a bunch of the small and medium storage bins in my pantry.  Once again, I like how the white blends with the shelves.  The bins do come in a variety of colors though.  

I always admire all those beautiful pantries with real seagrass or wicker baskets but they just aren't practical for our family.  With the plastic, I don't have to worry about the inevitable spills that will happen with two boys.

I love how these bins have a basket weave look but aren't as plain as your typical white plastic bin.


Laundry Cabinet Organization - My Favorite Storage Bins
And here are a few more of the small white storage bins in my laundry room cabinet.  As you might have noticed, my husband and I differ in our selections of detergents.  I go the more natural route and he sticks with the "classics".

What favorite things do you keep buying over and over?

  1. I think your organized shelves look great. I use the same bins in my bathrooms and I love them too. I completely agree about making things function better than just having them look pretty. Just last week, I organized our linen closet yet again and I removed the stylish baskets I had used because they looked good and used boring generic plastic bins because I know they work better for us.

  13. I laughed as I read your question. Today on Instagram, one of the challenges was "show us how you used baskets in your decorating". I counted 57 metal baskets and didn't even include my wicker ones in the count. So, I guess what I keep buying over and over again is baskets!

    Thanks for sharing with SYC

  15. Shelley I like how you are keeping it real here. Those perfect baskets we usually see are not always practical, and who has time for labels? I've got a post to finish! This is real life and that's what we should show and what our viewers want! Thanks for showing us your lovely baskets ove at Sweet Inspiration.

  16. I like your white bins to organize your bits and pieces. I tend to pick up matching tubs/bins for my basement storage. I keep trying to organize my many stashes of silk flowers, craft bits, holiday bits, fabrics, etc. And I think your marker label is just fine. I do the same. ha. Sheila

  17. I actually use a couple in my fridge to hold fruit and cheese. I love organizing stuff, it is so satisfying! Your pantry looks great and I am going to copy it for myself.

  18. Don't you just love it when you find a storage unit that fits perfectly inside your cupboards. It's like, yes my obsessive compulsive nature has been satisfied! Haha!
