Three ways I've reused a box to organize:
I was tired of straightening my son's coloring books on his big bookshelf so I found a solution with a diaper wipe box. I covered it with foam from the dollar store and let my little dude paint on two sides. I'm happy with the results.
My crafty area can get pretty messy. Baby/toddler shoe boxes hold little things like glue and embellishments perfectly. I keep the decorated boxes on top of my scrapbook compartments. Find some cheap patterned papers and go to town!
My head goes nuts when toys don't have a place! When we lived in a 2 bedroom apartment I had to organize my kids small bedroom/playroom so I felt calm while in the room. Cheap card stock along with packing tape was how I covered some good boxes for toys.
I also like to get rid of things while organizing. This week's resolution for the Happiness Challenge was to toss and organize. It was way too easy for me and I already had it on my big list so I tackled my storage room piles! Gretchin says, "For most people, outer order contributes to inner calm." Yep, it really does!
