Organize with Longaberger: Tidy Up Basket Ideas

(c) Deborah Kaye
This is a new segment in which I show you some ideas on how to decorate, organize, entertain, or all three with products from Longaberger. 
Organization is what I am striving for in my home and life, and often times, the house may not be what I want it to be, but I am getting there.  It is just me for now, and I want to be able to find things on the fly.  Organizing is one of those things that does have a lot of weight to a home.  After all, no one likes to stumble on something that is laying on the floor, or spend hours looking your keys or your purse. 
Many of the ideas I present have just about any of the current Longaberger products in mind, but if you do not have that product (which I do encourage you to try), or if you have an older retired product (such as the Key Basket) or no Longaberger products at all, I still encourage you to ty these ideas for organizing.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Tidy up your Home Office and Craft/Hobby room…
When I first saw this basket, I immediately thought about the home office.  Now you do not need a dedicated room to have a home office.  I live in a condo and converted my dining room into a home office nook area.  In addition to being an Independent Longaberger Home Consultant, I am also a scrapbook and stationery designer, as well as a freelancer writer and novice social media manager.  Wearing some many hats in many career means I need to have dedicated files for each of my many career hats.  The Tidy Up Basket would be perfect for those files.  I do not need that many files out at my fingertips, only the important ones, such as client lists, and projects I am working on. Other options
·         Holds pens and pads of paper
·         Mail center
·         Charging station for your phones and small tablets.  Make sure you are near a socket, thread the cords through the handle and place your basket on a hook.  Next time you are ready to charge, just place the phone or tablet in the basket.  
The Tidy Up basket has a leather handle on the back of the basket, and you can get one of those 3m Command® hooks, stick it to the wall, hang your basket, and put your files in there.   
How about that craft and hobby room?   You can place your most common small tools of the trade in the basket, Adhesives (glues and tapes), and even items such as ink pads, paint bottles, spools of ribbon and spools for serger and sewing machines.
Tidy up your Kitchen…
·         Sauce and smoothie mixes (Pantry)
·         K-cup and other coffee pods
·         Commonly used spices
·         Set up a coffee station
·         Set up a snack area (Pantry)
·         Plastic lid corral

Tidy up your baby’s room….
o   Diapers at the changing table.  Make sure that the basket is out of child’s reach.
o   Creams and lotions
o   Small toys to keep baby busy.
o   Breastfeeding supplies and bottle nipples and other supplies
Tidy up your bathroom…. (Requires a protector)
o   Curling Iron (warning:  Make sure you unplug it first)
o   Lotions, creams, and other skin products
o   First aid Kit
o   Bath toys for kids
o   Soaps
Tidy up your pet…
o   Leash
o   Pet treats
o   Pet shampoos
o   Pet toys
Tidy up your closet…
o   Hats, gloves, and scarves (coat closet)
o   Accessories (clothes closet)
o   Small towels (Linen)
These are some of the organizing ideas for Wednesday’s special.  As always, contact me if you have any questions, and these ideas can be used with anything, but I do encourage to check out this and other specials on my website.
