In our old house we had everything in bags, then crammed into shoe boxes and old containers I had saved. Nothing was easy to grab and more importantly, nothing was easy to put back quickly (which always needs to be done with all these littles running around!) So I had to come up with something better for the new house.
Mason Jars!!! They are trendy right now, so that is a plus. They are clear, stackable, come in all sizes, affordable, and cute! Breakable, yes. So I also keep a little plastic dish in the cupboard if I need to pour something into a dish for a child to use.
I'm really excited about it!
|I have found a new place for the paper since this photo. And as I get more supplies, the mason jars can be pushed closer and/or stacked. But for now they are in a cute symmetrical display. I like order:)|
And this is just a picture to show the new rug I found! It was just what I was looking for (well, I was looking for a round rug, but decided I loved this pattern and color and it would be fine in a rectangle).
I'm looking for cheap chairs on craigslist that I could paint or reupholster. For now, we have our barstools from the old house here.
