So all office supplies (pen refills, staples, etc) are in one drawer. Maybe all your lightbulbs and batteries are together with your unopened cleaning supplies and household tools. Clear containers are also great to organize shelves and closets.

Also, pull out the handy dandy label maker and label those baskets/containers.


In my tiny lil place, I've found that I can do one or the other: either keep like with like OR fit stuff into nice containers. I've gone with the containers which is why a lot of things that should be in one place are separated, and also why I can't see them well.

For example, I used to have one giant box with all the tools, nails, screws etc etc in it. Now I have four cute pink boxes...but which one is the wood glue in? Which has the stud finder?

I think labeling the containers is a great idea...if only I could find the label maker...;)
