Works-For-Me Wednesday: Organizing with cereal boxes

Head over to Rocks in my Dryer for lots of helpful tips.

My tip today is one I read somewhere else, probably on Organizing Junkie or Lazy Organizer. The tip is to use empty cereal boxes and other boxes as cheap storage containers. What I do is I cut the box down to the height I need it and it makes an easy box. I use the ends of cereal boxes to keep my spice cupboard organized, and I have all my most used spices in one so I can easily pull out that one box while cooking and have my spices where I need them. I use other empty food boxes in my pantry to keep bagged things organized. I also have different sizes of boxes in my junk drawer to keep it slightly more organized. And cereal boxes make good magazine holders.

Great idea, I must try.

I'm really cracking up here with your "procrastinators unite...tomorrow" sign. Very funny.
