Are you getting ready for chilly weather?

Pin It Now!
I am.
I have to.
The chilly mornings are here.
This is the shelf of the closet in our mudroom.
I picked up 4 baskets from Canadian Tire for $7.99 each.

I sorted & purged.
Then I labelled.
Shipping tags from Staples. Ribbon from my scrapbooking stash.
The labelling part is so important!
It keeps people from making a mess while looking for something in a hurry.
My 'Messy Marvin' likes to wear a tuque to school in the morning when it's chilly.
This helps us to find things in a jiffy.

That is a great idea- I must get some of those labels.

I love the fall wreath you fixed up for your door too.

Baskets are such a great way to store stuff...and they look great too!
Nice tags Angie!

Great idea! I love the tags!

Love it! Such a great idea. Trying to find winter cloths while trying to run out the door is the worst!

I love baskets and labels. They look great. I've heard a lot about Canadian Tire. My daughter lives outside of Montreal and goes there all the time. I'll have to pop into one on my next visit. Thanks for linking to We're Organized Wednesday.

Nice baskets, and only $7.99. I've been needing to tidy up our front hall closet - I should go and have a look at them. I like your little tags too. I might just become your little shadow following you around and copying all your great ideas.

It's scary how we think alike. I still have out three baskets for hats and mittens from our days in Nova Scotia--although, it's probably time to purge since most of it is not needed for Texas weather. I wanted to tell you, however, that I had scrapbook tags on my baskets, too but they ended up getting mangled. Check out the ones that just arrived this week from Ballard Designs: http://www.ballarddesigns.com/jump.jsp?itemType=PRODUCT&itemID=4769&fromNewSearch=true&mercadoResultId=0
