Getting Organized: Farmhouse Style!

SAM_7939

I’m all about the trendy rustic farmhouse look, but I try to do it on a budget. I bought this sign at Hobby Lobby for about $12. Not sure if it’s tacky or not, but I like it. I’m also trying to minimize my belongings. I often waste food because I don’t know what I have, so thought I’d get organized.

I stopped by Michael’s and they were having a 50% off Black Friday in May sale. All of the items I purchased were advertised as outside items. I’m using them in the kitchen. I love the look of this crate with the chicken wire. Fabulous! $8.50

Both sides of the trays have these sturdy metal handles.

I put my mason jars inside the trays for organization and a nice look.

There’s lots of room for odd food items. Neat and organized and you can easily see what you have.

Moving to other parts of the home, I bought several of these baskets to hold knick-knacks.

There’s lots of room for storage. It can go on the shelves or inside deep drawers. $16.99

I also got several of the classic woven baskets. I like the nice clean look they give a closet, and they range from small to large sizes. Generally, they cost from six to nine bucks at Marshall’s, and they’re usually in stock, so it’s easy to purchase more as you need them.

I came across this shelving unit at Meijer’s for only five bucks. Originally, I thought I’d used it to store my makeup palettes.

Then I realized the shelving unit matched a vase I have. So I think, I’ll use it for decor. Please let me know if you have any farmhouse decorating ideas.

Stay blessed,
