With a house that is less than 1,500 sq.ft. and 4 people living in it, we do not have a ton of extra space. One of the things we are sorely lacking is storage. Because of this issue, I have had to come up with some creative ways to store our stuff. We have kitchen appliances and containers on top of the cabinets, the fridge, the hood of the stove and anywhere else we can squeeze it in . The living room has even less storage because we have no closet or cabinet space to hide things away. In the bathroom, we have a closet that is half the width of a standard closet, so we have gotten creative in there as well. One of my favorite things to use for storage are fabric storage bins because I can have them out in the open and they look more “at home” than had I put an ugly plain plastic bin. Here are some clever uses for fabric organizer bins I found and wanted to share them with you.
- Kids Room: If you have kids, then you have a ton of toys, books, video games, and a ton of other fun things. With a teenage girl in the house, you can add all of her hair accessories, jewelry, art supplies and other what nots. I love using fabric bins in the kids rooms because if they get anything on them, I can clean them easily and they still look great.
- Bathroom: For the bathroom, I have a half closet with no door! Because anyone who visits the bathroom can see all my stuff, I want it to be nicely displayed. We have organized all of the medicinal items in one bin, our hair care products in one, and skin care in another. We found bins that matched our color scheme, and they look really pretty.
- Kitchen: I love using smaller bins in the kitchen for my gadgets. We have a pretty wide color palette, so I have plenty of colors I can use for the fabric bins. We have the gadgets we do not use all of the time, we have across the room and the items we use more often, we have the bins on the counter tops.
- Family Room: One of the rooms I need the most help in is my family room. We have a lot of things in that room and not a lot of places to put them. We have all of our games, photo albums, video games and DVD’s. I usually use smaller fabric bins but for the family room, I needed something bigger. When I was browsing through Etsy recently, I found a shop by the name of Shop Baby Swag that carries the prettiest and creative storage bins.
Clever Uses For Fabric Organizer Bins
One of the things I loved about Baby Swag when I first saw Caryn Goo’s shop was the brightness and cheerfulness it exudes. All of the items in Caryn’s shop are hand made and she offers some of the prettiest fabrics. One of the best sellers for Baby Swag is her fabric diaper caddies. I do not have babies at home anymore, but I knew exactly what I wanted to use her diaper caddy for. I have been looking for something cute that I could put our DVD’s in and I have not been able to find the right thing. When I saw the fabric diaper caddy fro Caryn’s shop, I knew it would be perfect for what I needed and it was! I love how perfectly I was able to fit 2 rows of DVD’s in the caddy and I was able to fit an incredible 30 DVD’s in it!
Caryn is a stay at home mom who has a very busy and very adorable little girl at home. She decided to put her craftiness to good use and she decided to sell her wares on Etsy. She sells a number of really cute items, including the diaper caddie, fabric storage bins and the cutest mobile with fabric birds. Caryn’s attention to detail and eye for colors and patterns really sets her products well above the rest. I am so happy with my caddy and it looks perfect with my color scheme in the family room. You can purchase your diaper caddy from Caryn’s Etsy shop for $50.00 as well as her many other delightful items.
