Now, I always thought I was the only weirdo who loved that book and just wholeheartedly embraced every page. Funny thing, I'm not.
Check out this post: 8 Truth About Home Organization I learned from the Berenstain Bears.
The best part of this article and my moto in life: if you're going to organize something, make it look good...why not? This is where my new OXO storage containers fit in. I spent way too much on them, but every time I see them in my pantry, I smile :) I still need one more :D
4. Make it pretty.
I'm not gonna lie — my very favorite part of this book was the lovely, pastel-colored boxes that seemed to nest perfectly into the cubs' closet. Years later, I still get a trace of that same satisfaction when I go to Ikea or the Container Store and see all their beautiful storage solutions. Sometimes I feel it when I look at my own closet. You probably like pretty things, too, or you wouldn't be reading a design site. So go the extra mile, maybe spend a little extra money to make your storage systems lovely to look at. Cleaning up will be that much more satisfying.
Look at those organized boxes!
There is a little person inside me smiling big right now :)
