Are you still on an organizing kick?  Or are you starting to lose steam?  Sometimes I lose my momentum when I get stuck with not having the right storage tools or accessories to get my project area actually organized.  So with that in mind – I went out and found eight great organization basics! 

Love this set of four canisters!  Perfect for the pantry and you can’t beat the price.

Set of 4 Canisters from Crate & Barrel – $12.95

These bright folders will have your papers under control in no time! 

Chelsea Letter File Folders Pk of 6 from The Container Store – $4.99

Love this sleek little basket.  Designed for CD’s but I can see it holding a lot of things!  And the price is right!

If you are low on cabinet space – cabinet organizers can really change your life.  We used these in our first kitchen apartment when we got married and it was a god send!

3-Piece Dinnerware Organizer from The Container Store – $9.99

Let’s say you need to get your bills under control – this paper organizer might be just the ticket!

So there you go!  Find anything you needed?  Are you stalled or are you still going strong?  Or perhaps you may already be finished!  Let us know where you are!

I'm going shopping in a few weeks for organization supplies for our kitchen (once it is done). I cannot wait.

We are definitely going to need some pantry cabinet organizers in our tall cabinet. Then some utensil organizers as well. We have food canisters here, but I want some new ones that will hold long pasta.

I love those folders - so bright and colorful. They make organizing fun.

Baskets are always my go-to organizational tools!

I used to work for the Container Store and it made me so excited about organizing. Something about seeing a perfect container for a certain item really makes you want to put everything in it's proper place!

Sadly, I no longer work for the Container Store. And my apartment shows the consequences.

Baskets are my new favorite organizational tool. But, what really made a different years ago was buying some (cheap) plastic shoebox (or slightly larger) sized containers.

I sorted them into things like Sick (filled with Dayquil capsuls, thermometer, pocket kleenex, cough drops, etc. Travel (travel sized containers, empty or filled, etc.) Hair - seriously, how many scrunchies do I need? Office - Supplies unlimited. Computer - now all trashed, but it held floppies, cds, zip disks, network dongles, driver disks, spare parts, etc.

I'm doing okay, but I need to get going again.
Thanks for the inspiration :)
