Finding a way to store belongings in an organized, but pretty way is a challenge. The first step, of course, is to declutter and make sure you aren’t taking up valuable space storing things you no longer want or need.

But then you’re left with the stuff you’re keeping. What are you going to do with it all?

Here are some of the ways I like to keep my things stored.


I have a few gorgeous baskets in my home that I just love. I received them as wedding gifts and in one of them I store our wedding albums and another is for storage in my office. Here are some pretty baskets similar to the ones I own


Clear plastic containers

I love using clear plastic containers to store craft supplies. I keeps things from spilling and I can easily peek in and see what’s in there. Even with labels, sometimes things get put in containers in that they don’t belong in. I have *no idea* how that happens, but occasionally, it does.

Small drawer organizers

These are such lifesavers! I hate digging through a crowded drawer trying to find what I’m looking for. These organizers allow me to compartmentalize my drawers so I can find whatever I need.

Tote bags

I have a tote bag from 31 that I absolutely adore. It has so many pockets to keep things separated and organized. I also think dedicated tote bags are a great way to organize and store library books and music lessons books and sheets.


Though not normally thought of as a storage space, binders are a great place to keep recipe pages, notes, and magazine pages. I have several binders for things such as home maintenance, doTerra information, recipes, and blogging.

There are so many ways to find creative storage solutions. The real key is to find what works for YOU and YOUR space.

I hope you found some inspiration here!
