Baskets. Trays. Shelves. Oh My! {Organization}


I do consider myself pretty organized except for a few places in the home (a couple drawers, closets, and under beds).


I use a number of baskets, trays, apothecary jars, and shelving units to organize my collections as well as necessities. Making organization both practical and pretty is a goal of mine.


Today, I am sharing my organization ideas/tips over at Kelly’s Korner. I hope you will link on over there and take a peek at organizational ideas and tips.

Baskets hold everything from barware, my collection of stoppers & napkin weights, spreaders & cheese utensils, and linens.

Baskets in the bathroom hold it all--- towels and toilet paper.

Trays, wooden or silver, contain many collections and organize things in one place.

For kitchen goods…

For liquor…


For books and accessories…

For desk needs…


Shelving holds plates and other important serveware.


Shelving also organizes all my bathroom towels and necessities to make it easy for guests in the guest bathroom to easily access goods.

Wooden wine crates also help to corral bottles of alcohol in the bar as well as more bath needs in the guest bath.

Apothecary jars hold soaps and shampoos as well as bath salts.

As you can see, I enjoy making organization practical and pretty.

Today, I have a Pharmacological Nuclear Stress Test at Ochsner. Keep me in your prayers!

Organization can be fun, y’all!
