Craft time: Beautiful (and frugal!) lined storage bins

After working my way through Get Organized’s 30-day Organize-athon, it occurs to me that my storage areas are a disaster! We live in a 158-year-old house, which means tiny or non-existent closets. The ones we do have need revamping with labeled boxes!

So, how to get more boxes without paying through the nose? Make your own! And make them beautiful!

Positively Splendid uses diaper boxes in this tutorial for lined canvas bins, but you also could use shoeboxes, office boxes, anything that’s the size you need. Label them however you like (numbers wouldn’t be effective for me, unless perhaps I was numbering the children!) and give it a whirl.

FYI: Our site is acting weird…

UPDATE: **You apparently can still see recent posts, as well as archived ones, so if you’re new here, scroll down and keep looking!

Hi, all! Thank you for your patience — we are moving servers/domains/(whatever you call them), and the site is a bit wonky. It should be fixed by the weekend, with lots of great deals, bargains and other goodies coming your way!

Thanks for being a fan of Frugal York County — I’ll set out new stuff ASAP!
