With lofty resolutions in full swing and Marie Kondo's Netflix mega-hit Tidying Up trending, it seems everyone is trying to get their home in order right now. If the idea of plunking down cash for perfectly coordinated storage vessels is the only thing keeping you from joining the movement, you're missing out.
Resourceful moms like Janine Young, a certified KonMari consultant, point out the plethora of free storage supplies most of us have lying around our homes. Case in point: Janine used an empty baby wipes container and an empty cardboard box she would have otherwise recycled to whip her daughter's socks and tights drawer into organized perfection. And others are following suit, whether it's reimagining an empty tissue box to corral perfumes or repurposing a porcelain cup to hold mascaras and eyeliners in a vanity drawer. You can also stick to cheap bins and baskets from retailers like Dollar Tree and walk away with the dresser storage equivalent of a Starbucks venti latte and baked good.
The point being that you absolutely should not procrastinate your joy-sparking just because you're having trouble finding the right boxes. For further convincing, scroll through this KonMari-inspired gallery of epic storage vessel usage, where organizing tools range from salvaged recyclables to pottery goods plucked from kitchen cabinets, and prepare to be fully charged and ready to organize!
