Creative Bliss: DIY Storage Bins

DIY Storage Bins

I am always looking for ways to have organized storage (if there is a such thing:)  I was looking at all the great bins at the different stores, but I just didn't want to have to pay $20 + for each one.  I found this post from Positively Splendid and just got so very excited!  She made beautiful bins with diaper boxes...yes diaper boxes.  They are much prettier than any I saw in the stores.  I got to thinking where was I going to find my own diaper boxes....my youngest is seven so not at home would I find them.  I called my girlfriend and yup she had Luvs diaper boxes for me..YAY!  She gave me three and I gave one to my 7 year old, alright he begged and I gave in....lol  I went and bought the fabric I needed and some vinyl for my Cricut.

I love them!  I may change up my vinyl and do the letters lower case.  I put these in my laundry room and keep linens in them that I don't want taking up space in the linen closet.  Things like doilies, tablecloths, holiday linens, etc.  These are taller than the average diaper box would be, which I like for the laundry room.  I am collecting more boxes to make one more bin for the laundry room and some regular size boxes for the kiddies rooms.  I hope you enjoyed reading and be sure to look around here and also check out Positively Splendid she is one of my faves.  Thanks for reading!

Thanks for commenting on my blog post...don't get me started on AR....I hate it! But since you are stuck with it, maybe some of the tips will help...I am going to do a post about math soon. In the meantime...seriously...don't stress...WHATEVER he reads is reading...stay in touch and I will be glad to give more advice...I have been teaching for GASP 36 years...and have a 28 year old son who hated AR too....and go figure...now he is probably more literate than my lawyer daughter....so hang in there!

Thank you so much. You have a lot of great info and links to sites that he can go on. I don't usually let him on the computer so this can also be a special thing for him.
