Call it a compilation of all the crazy projects I've come up with over the years. Call it a how-to for things around the house. Call it whatever you like :) It's what I do everyday. My blog is really just a way for me to share what I've learned over the years about home improvement, interior design, organization, diy, crafting and home repair. And most importantly it comes from always working on a budget and forever wanting to fend for myself when it comes to anything. I hope you enjoy (and learn a few things along the way :)

Hang baskets under your cabinets for extra storage
One of my favorite storage solutions in my home is my wall baskets in my kitchen. I hung four of them under a bank of cabinets with an odd cut out spot. It was dead space that was just crying out for a storage solution.
I found these hanging baskets at pier 1 and they fit perfectly. Just enough room for four. We use them to store tape/glue in one, scissors in another, permanent markers in the third, and a few other office supplies in the last. Keeps them "easy to find" and in their own specific spot.
It's sort of the same concept IKEA has with those rod and basket systems they sell (obviously this was a much cheaper option, and the type of basket I bought hides the contents...but theirs are very cute : )
Wall baskets can really be hung anywhere (down a odd small wall, on a wall in a pantry). There are quite a few options out there if you just search wall basket (some are more country, others more primitive, some more modern). Another great way to organize your stuff.
