Getting Organized: Do You Need to Buy New Containers?

Many times people will already have all the containers they need — or at least many of them — if they just do a little repurposing. Here’s one example from a client I worked with recently, who gave me permission to share the photos in this post with you. A pet food bowl with a small crack is now being used to hold some corks. This allowed us to re-use something she really liked, but couldn’t use for its original purpose.

But here’s a case where buying new products made sense, because it allowed us to make use of every bit of space available in a small closet. One shelf serves as a medicine cabinet, and the Zia stacking baskets fit the space perfectly.
