Dollar Store Score!

August 17, 2008

I’m a gigantic fan of Lunch in a Box.  Biggie is a really gifted cook, and incredibly generous with her tips and tricks.  Moreover, her Bug will eat all kinds of interesting foods which my children would never, never try, so her bento are lovely, inventive, and full of remarkable food combinations.  All hail Biggie!

Recently, though, her adventures in organizing her kitchen gave me the boost I needed to do something about my bathroom.  The self-same kitchen baskets from the dollar store that tidied up her kitchen shelves could be used, I surmised, to corral the whirling mass of chaos that is my bathroom storage.  Off to the Dollar Tree, where I scored Sterilite containers for (you guessed it!) a dollar each. 

Armed with my trusty label maker (man, I love that thing), I arranged our bathroom supplies in a highly practical, if not very elegant manner:

We’re as organized as we can be.  Hurrah!  No more fumbling around for a bandaid and encountering only six tubes of hydrocortisone ointment.

    I am having a secret affair with my label maker. It organizes my life, tells me where to go and will even talk dirty to me if I ask it to. What more could you ask for?

    Your labels, cracked me up and Im glad your bathroom is now spiffy.
