Like I said, you can wrap boxes and use them for cute storage totes. I don't have my labels on these ones yet, but it's just to show another organizing option. When ever I have my cleaning/organizing class, I always show the ladies this, and they LOVE it! No more spending $12.99 at Ross for a super cute one, make your own!

I am almost done with my inventory list. Yes, I have taken note of almost every item in my house (only food & usable items. No furniture or clothes, that's boring insurance stuff...) It has taken awhile, and then compiling the lists into catagories and then marking each item, but in my brain, it has been well worth it and now I know what I actually have tucked behind the 80 boxes of pasta salad, and what I really need to focus on collecting. I have a: Freezer inventory, health & beauty inventory, cleaning supply inventory, food inventory, office supply inventory, kitchen inventory, outside shed inventory & our lovely food storage inventory. It has been fun!

I LOVE my little hide-a-way pantry that's tucked away from everything else. Of course we have to keep a lock on it because we have about a 1000 pounds of suger behind this door and the kids go wild when the door is open. But I've been able to tuck things away in here quite nicely.
I LOVE my peg board on the back of the door for so many reasons. It utilizes the space perfectly, I can see what I have, and when I'm feeling like my weird self, I just like to stand and stare at it for awhile. I wish I could put about 50 more of them up, but hey, space is limited!
I do LOVE to organize, and I'm huge on , shelving units, racks, and my favorite, wrapping empty diaper boxes with super cute paper, putting a label on the front, and using it for storage.

I always said I could write a book about all my incredible deals, so I decided to keep record of all my insanily cheap shopping trips, and record my million dollar savings with pictures and journal entries. This is just for me to keep track of one of my wild addictions, plus all these years, I've wondered, how much I've actually saved, and, it's so beautiful to see pictures of all my loot! At the end of the year, I'll make a book out of this blog, and then I can stop saying, "I could write a book about all my deals..."
