Whether you are a Kon Mari slayer or just a trying to keep my stuff together kind of organizer, the key is to give everything a home and store items together. Smaller items need a cozy home so that they stay put. Storage does not have to be expensive. I have found lots of inexpensive organizing solutions at the dollar store.
Inexpensive organizing solutions can seem hard to find if you go to the trendy stores, but I know where you can find some cheaper storage alternatives. This weekend I stopped by the dollar store for fun organizing ideas. I usually go to the 99 Cent store or Dollar Tree because those are the closest dollar stores for me. The Bulls Eye Playground bins at Target are also a great source for inexpensive organization products.
By the way, if you love those bins, know that I share my Target dollar bin finds on Tuesday on Instagram There are tons of great items there!
