Baskets and bins and places to put stuff. Can you ever really have enough? These adorable baskets were originally designed as handy storage for a baby gir's nursery, but they are so cute and clever, they would be perfect for any room in the house: bread baskets, mail baskets, gift baskets. But wait... there's more! The sides and bottoms of each basket are stiffened with recycled cardboard and the unique seams allow them to collapse and fold flat to store.
We spent the first day of our Clean & Tidy Week, fixing up the family room. Today it's time for an exercise break. But it still falls under the spick-and-span umbrella, because our yoga mat bag allows you to tidy all your workout clothes and accessories into one, handy over-the-shoulder sling. Its generous size is big enough to hold your mat, towel and flip flops. It even has a handy outside pocket with a Velcro closure for a wallet, phone and keys. Plus, our original tutorial gives you great step-by-step directions for how to perfectly match the pocket fabric to the bag. Haven't you always wondered how they do that?
We have a feather duster in one hand and a cleaning rag in the other. We're ready to do battle with the disorganization that has crept in during the dreary days of winter. It's time to manage the mess and clear the clutter. And we've collected some of our favorite S4H Clean & Tidy projects to help. Today's target: the family room with its piles of remotes, controls and guides – none of which are EVER where they are supposed to be. Our cool sofa caddy keeps everything right at your fingertips. The pockets have the perfect expandable gusset: big enough to easily slide stuff in and out, but not so big that things topple out.
What are gypsies often known for? Traveling. And what do you need for traveling? A beautiful bag. Our soft and slouchy boho bag blends seven different fabric designs into the ultimate dramatic statement: color, pattern and texture combine from all sides. Lightweight batting between layers keeps keeps the shape without losing the cush. And a row of perky pom poms along the top edge marks this as one super creative carry-all.
I've worn glasses since I was about eight years old, which means I have absolutely no memory of what it is like to wake up and be able to see across the room. It also means, I'm a big fan of the eyeglass case because it's the best way I've found to keep track of my eyeglasses or sunglasses. Plus, it protects them when I need to toss a pair of into my bag. This fast and easy project would also make a perfect gift or a craft fair/boutique item to sell. I say this since everyone I showed my sample to wanted to keep it! We added a cute dangling fob made of of leather and beads
It just wouldn't have been the holidays without the annual gift of socks and undies. Before your throw your new fine-wear and lingerie into that crazy, messy dresser drawer... stop! Do you really want to always be digging around looking for something, tossing things about like a giant salad? Our easy over-the-door, nine-pocket caddy is much better at keeping everything tidy and within reach. You could also use the big pockets for larger jewelry, like beads and bangles. Even lightweight active wear, such as yoga tops and running shorts could be easily stashed.
Okay... here's the scenario - feel free to jump in at any time and scream, "That happens to me too!" You're driving. Your front passenger's seat is piled with stuff (I mean, crap): receipts, cell phone, scribbled notes, Google Maps printouts, pens, snacks, your wallet, etc., etc., etc. Keeping your eyes on the road (of course) you reach out to grab something from the pile of stuff (crap), but can't quite reach it/find it without rear-ending the truck in front of you. Instead... the needed item falls off the seat, lodging somewhere between the seat and the door. Feel free to jump in here and repeat the words you shout in your car when you are alone. Our spiffy car caddy is designed to organize your stuff (crap), improve your driving safety, and look cute as can be all at the same time. It straps around the seat's headrest, so you can hang it to the front or the back.
