31 Uses for Thirty-One Gifts #1: Cleaning Supply Organizer

One thing I love about Thirty-One is how cute yet functional our products are.  Our products are great for organizing items in your home and car.  I need all the help I can get with organizing!  So I’m starting a new series of posts that will highlight 31 ways in which I am using Thirty-One products to organize and spice up my life!

For the first post in the series, I thought I would focus on one of the less glorious, but absolutely necessary parts of our days: cleaning.  More directly, our cleaning supplies.

I used to have my cleaning supplies in a red basket above the dryer in our laundry room.  Every time I needed to scrub a bathroom (which is often with two messy kids :)), I would have to stretch out and grab the whole basket & sometimes stuff would fall on my head.  :)

Please ignore our laundry room.  We are planning on a laundry room makeover very soon!

Once I got the cleaning supplies down, they were all jumbled up and disorganized. The basket was too ackward to carry from room to room, so I would just grab what I needed and load up my hands and arms as I went around the house (inevitably having to make a trip back across the house when I realized I forgot something).

Now, I know this wasn’t an awful method, but I knew it could be better! So I said no more clunky red basket and disorganized cleaning supplies! I started by laying everything out to see what all I had.

After I laid it out I realized I had a lot of stuff to keep up with, but I had the perfect solution: My Thirty One Mini-Organizer bag!

Thirty-One Mini Organizer

All it took was a few minutes and I had all of my cleaning supplies organized in a perfect little bag. And more importantly it is portable!

See, my cat Lily even likes it!  I couldn’t get her to stay away from it!

Another great thing about the form factor of the bag is that it now fit perfectly into its new location under my front loader washer in my fancy schmancy drawer.  Love those drawers!

It is so much easier to just grab my mini organizer by the handles & carry it around from room to room while I clean.  Everything I need fits in it perfectly. I’m a happy girl!

I would love to hear what you would do with a Thirty-One mini organizer.
Would you use it for cleaning supplies like me?
Would you use it for something totally different?

Let me know!
