Mrs Organised

(I just found this in draft form - written back in April - so a 'bonus' post this weekend.)

I am sharing this not to impress you with how organised I am - nevertheless be impressed - but as a head's up in case you are looking for cheap, easy, instant storage.

We are in the throes of decorating the big house and 'stuff' arrived in my Hive that 'belongs to you' (husband speak as he delivers it).

The prospect of an Ikea trip (at least half a day) was not on the cards and I wanted it sorted like now.  Inspired thinking..... have a look at Argos - we have a local one... Found two bookcases exactly the right size for £16.99 each.  Ordered two and paid £3.95 delivery and two and a half hours later they were delivered - no kidding - Oh, and yes, it was a Sunday.  Stuff messing up my hive about 11 am and by 4.30 pm this is what I had..... without having left the room.

sewing stuff and cards

mini hobby things

everything labelled

Incidentally these shelves also come in a wider version and both of those come in taller versions - these are just the ones that fitted my space.



  1. Excellent. It's always good to be pointed in the right direction for useful storage. Love the boxes too!

  2. I did this reply already and lost it!! So much for Mrs Organised. Hi Irene, Happy Sunday. If you mean the terrific A4 sized plastic boxes with 18 compartments shown in the last photo..... you can get them here (UK) but I snaffled them for $2.50 each from Wal-Mart when we were there. They have been sooooo useful. Marilyn

  3. Hello Marilyn,
    That looks great! What fantastic storage. I am envious in the friendliest possible way!
    Big hug

  4. I bet you have super duper organisation..... Thanks for stopping by. Marilyn
