In Honor of My Mom: Organizing in Blue for 2014

Seven years ago, my mom died of pancreatic cancer. Her favorite color was blue, so this is my annual tribute to her.

Let’s start out big, with this shelving system from the company named Montana, and sold by twentytwentyone. It comes in 49 colors, including this blue.

blue baskets

These nesting storage baskets from Senegal are both pretty and functional.

blue and green magazine files

These are the Vera Bradley Book Keepers — also good for magazines. They collapse for easy storage when not in use. Update on April 9, 2019: Vera Bradley no longer sells these products.

blue felt basket

This felt storage bin comes from Hook ’n Loop Design.

blue lizard refrigerator magnet

Finally, I really like this blue lizard fridge magnet — enough that I decided to include it even though the photo is a bit blurry. It’s made from wrought iron. Update on April 9, 2019: Sadly, the site that sold this has disappeared.

What a great way to remember your Mom. And what a lot of great blue organizing ideas. I love the giant shelving and the nesting baskets...
