Corraling rags and note paper
I've had several moves since divorcing in '12. Each time, I downsize, cull through possessions, which at one point included 4 desks (now just mine remains). I had gathered all of the unused/no longer used and more elementary school supplies, and actually sold some off. Some were donated. Remaining was a variety of small note pads-perfect for scrap paper. I had them in a rectangular, plastic basket that I had owned for years, but I wished to better organize my cleaning rags, as they tended to topple over in the cabinet. I keep towel rags, microfiber rags, 100% cotton rags separated. I now have the 3 groupings of rags stashed away in separate bins, having repurposed similar plastic baskits. What to do with the scrap paper/note paper, which I keep in the kitchen, atop the fridge? I had to replace a tissue box and was inspired to cut the top out, leaving an on inch edge all along the top. It's a bit tight, but I was able to get all of the note books/pads and scrap paper into it, as well as a pen for note taking. Zero cost, using what I have, remaining organized-perfect.
