Mason Jar Desk Organizer

We're in the process right now of remodeling our office and our new desk is going to be wall to wall to accommodate both myself and my husband. Since I have plenty of space to work with, this Mason Jar Desk Organizer worked out perfectly - and it looks great too!

Because the new desk will not have any drawers, I needed to come up with a way to organize essentials like pens, pencils, batteries, paper clips, and markers. I had a small balsa wood crate sitting in the basement that I had been holding on to for quite awhile. Every time my husband was in an organizing mood, he would ask me what I was going to do with it. I would just tell him I didn't know at the time, but would eventually find a use for it. I'm so glad I kept it all these years because it makes the perfect desk organizer with mason jars. I just painted it with black chalk board paint to give it a new life.

I decided to add a sewing kit to my Mason Jar Desk Organizer because the needle and thread never seem to be in the same place. Since I like to focus on one or two colors when decorating a room, I chose a bluish green and brown. I was lucky enough to find a handkerchief at Hobby Lobby on clearance for $1 and used that for the sewing kit pin cushion. I also added a flower in those same colors since flowers make everything look pretty.

Above are simple instructions on how to make the lid of a mason jar sewing kit. I feel confident now that whenever I need a needle and thread, I will not have to search junk drawers. Wink

If this Mason Jar Desk Organizer is an idea you like, but don't have a random balsa wood crate laying around like I did, I would suggest trying Michael's, Hobby Lobby, or even Goodwill. 


Tank Top Storage & Organization

Pinterest Tweet

Here is a super easy solution to storing and organizing your tank tops! 

For years and years my tank tops would be such a mess either in a drawer or on my closet shelf. No matter how often I straightened them up, and how careful I was to remove one from the middle or bottom, they were always a mess. And oh my the wrinkles from folding them! 

By storing them in a canvas tote, or even a small plastic crate from Dollar Tree, they easily stay organized! Plus, your closet will look that much better. Laughing

To get a nice tight roll, start by folding the tank top in half from top to bottom. Then, roll the tank top starting from the top down. You will end up with a rolled tank top that is wrinkle free!

This would be a great tip to pass on to those preteen and teenage girls who seem to have millions of tank tops!

Water Bottle & Travel Mug Storage in an Over-The-Door Shoe Rack!

Pinterest Tweet

Are reusable water bottles and travel mugs taking up too much cabinet space? They sure did at my house! We go through 4 - 5 reusable water bottles and travel mugs every day. We have so many that they were taking over an entire cabinet. Surprised

I decided to buy a small over-the-door shoe rack and hang it on the back of our basement door for these bottles to free up some cabinet space! I picked this one up at Menards for only $7.99. It's smaller than the ones we actually use for shoes in our laundry room, but it has just enough spots for all of our bottles. And since the basement door is always open, I don't have to look at them every single time I walk past. Wink
