as you can see, clear storage bins are a favorite organizing tool in my home.

i like them because you can get a glimpse of what you are looking for without taking off the lid or digging through mysterious boxes to find things. everything in the bins stay clean, things remain smelling good. smell is huge for me, i dislike anything with an odd odor, and mice can’t get into bins! dusty & i once stored all of our early-marriage stuff in boxes at his families ranch, we went overseas traveling for two years and returned to all of our boxes full of mice. yes, mice were living in the boxes, in all of our stuff.

you know the shoe holders that go right over the back of a door?

they are a great organizing/space-saving tool, but a major eyesore if it’s hanging on the back of a bedroom door…

well, that eyesore is my favorite way to organize our families mittens, gloves, scarves, hats, goggles, umbrellas, toe warmers, sunglasses…in a closet…

in one spot! the best thing is that they are NOT all stuffed in a basket so you, your husband, or kids don’t have to DIG to find the matching gloves, or the one lost red mitten…

i love how functional this is…

and affordable!

is to use these ziplock bags, they work great for babies & kids under 6 but as the clothes get bigger you do need bigger bags. I have a supply of XL, and XXL ziplock bags (some that size can even hold towels, blankets, and sleeping bags) that I have used & re-used, but didn’t have a new box to include in the picture.Now, this AMAZING packing idea comes straight from the organize queen Sara Staker, so much credit needs to be given to her. I have done this for almost a year now, and the perks of packing this way are endless. To list a few, when my older kids shower or bath and start looking through hotel room drawers or the suitcases for their pajama’s/clothes they are not tearing apart and/or digging through piles of clothes to do so.
