Wandering through the aisles of Target a while back, my eye was caught by these Liberty of London file boxes. They were a perfect fit for the super-shallow shelves of our basement bookcases.
Now, I know not everyone needs shallow file boxes- in fact most probably prefer thick ones -but if space is an issue, these are a lifesaver! Even Jesse was fine with his bookshelf being outfitted with them- much better than the sprawling, messy stacks of paper that were everywhere.
And how about this little fabric covered bin? Snatched it on clearance- $7! Perfect for holding pup toys...
...also perfect for holding the boo! :)
I'm really thrilled with these bins/boxes. Organization is so important, but I've always had a hard time finding functional tools that don't need to be 'hidden' away. It's really refreshing to find things I'm proud to use and have out in the open- and most importantly they didn't cost an arm & a leg!
