Hoarders

Ok, I've decided it's time. Or, as my husband would say, it's time to call "knock it off." Our basement storage area is out of control. All that comes to mind is the show Hoarders. Have you seen this on A&E? It's terrifying. We have lived in our house for one year and the piles of randomness have been slowly building.


Time is up. I need to get serious and invest in some organization! Here are some finds that have inspired me to get my act together.





Suitcase, bin, shelve, hook. I need to start to use these!
I love love love this vintage case by Get Ready, Set, Go!
Great for DVDs, CDs, Computer and Camera wires, cables, etc.!








20 of these on my wall would be a good start.
Perfectly simple hooks by Altered Iron.






Tired old ugly cardboard boxes no more.
Shelves of bins like this would keep anyone inspired to be organized all day long!




LOVE these upcycled billboard banner storage bins by NottyPooch







And for a little extra room! I can find all sorts of things to store in this
1960's vintage storage box by Julie McCorkle!




So, now that I have the proper inspiration, I need to execute the cleaning and storing of the randomness that is my basement!

It is that time already! Time to kick the clutter to the curb. Spring is in the air. Thanks for the inspiration - I need to clean my attic out and am procrastination like crazy...

Our basement is in the same dissorder. Thanks for including my horseshoe hooks on your blog! We have a nice tidy area when it comes to coats at least!

We don't have a basement but our working area is... well let's just not go into it. Hehe.

Thanks for the inspiration and for including our recycled banner storage bins in this find!

Nice picks! I am currently down-sizing my piles and piles of Craft stuff to make room for a new baby. It's hard though! I collected all this "stuff" with the intent to make something cool-lol.
