Today I wanted to share with you something I am very happy about....a $3.00 plastic container. It's actually a basket insert for the ANTONIUS system from IKEA. I bought just one container at the time of my shopping adventure but quickly realized when I got home, how amazing this item was and all of the different uses for it. I went back the next week and bought six more. Let me show you all of the ways I used this insert for organizing items in our house.
I started with this empty container...again, you can find it at your local IKEA with the ANTONIUS systems.
Lego's drive me crazy and our son is all over them. With this basket, I can easily clean up a table where he was playing. Also, it makes it easier for him to find a particular item that he is searching for if they are organized.
This basket fits perfectly in the deep drawer in my bathroom vanity. I don't have much make-up so dividing all of it up was easy. I have all of my make-up remover and cotton balls all in one place.
Men's Grooming Organizer
All of my husbands grooming needs are at his reach for his morning routine.
Hair and Nail Organizer
Everything that has to do with my hair and nails are now easy to find.
Yes, I am one of those people that still writes thank you notes and they can now all be in one place. I have additional cards and blank note cards in here as well. Stamps, scissors, pens and decorative washi tape (for the back of the envelope) fit nicely in here too.
School Lunch Pantry Organizer
I'm always looking for easier ways to speed up the morning routine when it comes to getting my son ready for school. Lunch packing can be relative easy if you are prepared. With this basket in the pantry, I can easily prepare it on Sunday night with all of his lunch needs and just grab and pack during the week.
School Lunch Refrigerator Organizer
I did the same thing in the refrigerator with his lunch as I did for the pantry. Super easy and efficient.
Are you sold yet? I can tell you that there are so many more ways I can use this plastic container and I will definitely be buying more on my next trip to IKEA.
Have a great week!
