I’ll go through a general overview of some of the areas of my home I organized with storage bins and things, including separate blog posts for some of them. 🙂

How to Organize Your Home on a Budget
Here are all the bins and baskets I got. They were just a buck each at the Dollar Tree! Hooray! It was interesting carrying back a very precarious stack of these on the bus though haha. There are also a couple fabric bins. They have them in every color of the rainbow!
If you’d rather buy stuff elsewhere, here’s what I recommend:
Here’s how I organized my desk / work area. I wanted my desk to be as neat and clean as possible, so there’s only a few things on it. A couple candles, a monogram sign with my initial, and a little pink bin with office supplies.
Here’s a close up look of the pink desk organizer with office supplies in it.
Here’s how I organized my closet. You can see the pink and teal bins at the top from the Dollar Store for random things, along with a jewelry hanger on the side for my necklaces, a teal fabric bin for my bag o’ plastic bags, and a white hanging sweater hanger that I use mostly for shoes. There’s also a popup white hamper in the back for laundry.
Why yes, that is a scratching post taped to my wall.
