the clothing concernMy girls share a room and they are not always thrilled about it. It can get a bit overwhelming when life gets busy, and by overwhelming, I mean messy.

I do my utmost to help them keep their room clean. Several months ago, I invested in lined baskets for their closet shelving. I would watch for the baskets to go on sale and then purchase one or two -whatever would fit into my budget. Then I would wait for another sale to come around.

Patience is key.

Then I found these stainless steel, chalkboard basket labels at Target on clearance. Happy dance.

Procrastination can sometimes pay off -only sometimes.

I labeled each of the tags with my beloved Dollar Spot chalk marker from Target. I love that thing. I may have grabbed another marker last Tuesday…the last one at that particular Target store. (I figured that I had better stock up while they have them.)

The five baskets are for underthings (one for Bunny and one for Fuzz), pajamas (again one for each of them) and socks/tights (for them to share).

Just solving one problem at a time….. 😉


What about you? Do you store some clothing items in baskets? I love that everything can be dropped in the basket for quick storage – no stacking and yes, even no folding required. Use container labels to help your daily routines run more smoothly. No more hunting.tip 19
