Michael’s 90% off baskets

This last week has been AMAZING for killer deals.

I have been wanting a couple new baskets for our space. Just one or two to use for the living room and laundry room. I have also been needing 5-10 baskets/bins for my studio so when I found out from some of my IG friends that Michael’s baskets were 90% off I ran. SO GLAD I did. When I went back the next day there was barely anything left someone had come and cleaned them out pretty good.

I ended up going to two stores and getting 10 baskets for $25 after tax. Each basket averaged out to be about $2. Considering they retail for $19-$29 I would call that a steal.

So how do you know when baskets are 90% off?

Well first off there will NOT be any signage advertising it. Simply scan the basket tag at the self scanners throughout the store.

If you have a Michaels nearby you, you may want to check out your store. They only baskets that are 90% off are KINGSTON and PENNY AND PARKER tags. If Michael’s is a bit of a drive for you, I would NOT run. Most bargain shoppers and couponers have taken most of the baskets by now unless your store has re-tagged them.

Don’t worry though if you missed out on this deal. It happens every couple months as each line of baskets gets discontinued.

Walk in Closet | Before + After Pictures

Today I got to organize the master walk in closet. It took me about 2.5 hours {including time talking on the phone distracted}

(All pictures taken on phone)

What I did with this closet was take out EVERYTHING on the top shelf and on the floor except for the three things they asked to leave there. Then I brought in the storage organizers I had available and began filling them up with things that belonged in closet. I found alot of things that don’t belong in a clothing closet. Isn’t that the downfall of any closet? It becomes the catchall for any and everything. So I sorted out what needed to be put in storage, what needed to be taken out of brown boxes and put in plastic bins. I added a hanging clothing organizer in the middle which I like because I think it gives the closet balance to not just have one. Overall, over 6 boxes of stuff was condensed down into the plastic bins you see in closet. I took out 2 boxes of photographs as motivation to actually put them in photobooks and one bin of summer clothing out to be put in attic. Otherwise everything went right back in closet- just where it belonged though.

The bins I had available to use – I actually didn’t use them all (not sure why laundry baskets are in this picture)

Those are all the boxes I got rid of that had things in them.
