Seriously?? 2009?? I knew there were a lot of receipts but I thought it was 2010 onwards...
Anyways, we had a good sort through and ended up with 2 empty containers. One has 2011/2012 Financial year receipts, and the other has preschool receipts yet to be filed.
I also stored my breast pads in a wipes container, but as I've weaned my son, I no longer need the pads. I'd only just opened a box of breast pads when I started weaning him, so I'm going to give them to my cousin, as she's due to have her second baby in a week :)
So that leaves me with 3 empty wipes containers... I didn't want to throw them away as they are very useful, so I thought about using a box to store my freezer bags in, as they're all over the place in the drawer...unfortunately the drawer isn't deep enough...
Another area which was in need of some organisation is the craft cupboard. I had a lot of bags with mixed up crayons/pencils/textas etc, so I decided to put all the crayons in one container, finger paints in another and the last one housed the small chalk, glitter, glue and other little bits. I also sorted the pencils and textas and put them back where they belong.
Once I file the contents of the other 2 boxes, I can put them to good use. I'm thinking of using one to store plastic bags instead of having them shoved under the sink and the other I'm not to sure yet, but I've got some things in mind.
Here's a few ideas of what they can be used for/store:
- Crafty bits - Pencils/paints/crayons etc
- Grocery shopping bags
- Money box
- Make up
- Phone chargers
- Hair accessories
- Ribbons for craft/presents
- Pet food
- Baby keepsake
- First aid kit
- Contain objects in bag/nappy bag
- DIY Wipes for bub or cleaning
- Screws, nails etc
- Breast pads
- Other pads
- Cookie cutters
- Tiny toys
- Doll clothes/bits
- Washing powder
