I Love This Idea!

A few weeks ago I was surfing around blogdom and I came upon an idea that I thought was so clever that I wanted to share it with you. I can't remember who had the idea ~ but whoever it was, thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!

Step 1.

I went to WalMart and bought this clear shoe organizer for $7.00



Step 2:

When I got home I immediately started on my "scavenger hunt." Don't you love it when you have found an idea you are so excited about you get wait to get going on it? Anyway, I was so tired of having band-aids in one bathroom, rubbing alcohol in another, asking,"where's the thermometer," if I suspect somebody has a fever, or "I have a headache and I can't find the Tylenol" etc., etc., .........You get the drill! Please tell me that this happens at your house, too;) Or, even worse than not knowing where something is, is to be out of something and not realize it until the moment you need it. How many midnight runs have we made for one thing or another for our family when they are sick? It's complete madness, I tell you! Having this organizer allowed me to put everything in ONE PLACE, and the best part is I can see everything right away. I don't have to go "hunting" around my house, or asking people if they know where something is anymore! It's pure genius, I tell you:)



Isn't it pretty;) ;)

A wonderful idea, thanks for sharing it!

Another use for these shoe organizers I've seen in Blogland is cutting through all of the bottoms except for the very bottom row and then you can store your gift wrap in it.

What a fabulous tip - thanks so much for showing us a way to make life easier (for us and those "midnight sickies" we love so much! :)

Very nice! That would clear out my medicine cabinet quite nicely.

God bless.

I love this idea! Thank you for sharing. Another creative use for one of these plastic contraptions: keeping your gloves in pairs in the closet during winter!

I did the same scavenger hunt years ago and organized it all into a large fishing tackle box. We do a lot of camping so it's organized and portable.
