Sunday Savings

by heatherkp

It’s Sunday again & it seems that it’s the only day have been posting recently, I’m hoping to change that this week.  Okay, so this week there are loads of savings on electronic gadgets for Fathers day which may or may not help you with organizing (depends on what you really Need).

To start things out with a different listing, lets take a look at what Dollar General has.  Go to their website for your local weekly circular, what I’ve posted here is for the Charleston area. There are an assortment of storage boxes (brand unknown) from Medium storage to “sweater”-12qt and shoe boxes.  I always prefer clear boxes so you can see what you’ve got and those shoe size boxes come in handy anywhere from the kitchen to the bathroom and anywhere in between-unlike some people I do NOT use them to store most of my shoes, just those that are rarely worn.

$6 Storage Totes (20 Gallon)

$3.50 Sweater Boxes (12 Qt)

$1 shoe boxes (6 Qt)

I admit that I have a perchance for Target (am I sounding old for using a word like that?-I’m not old, just like to shake up my vocab occasionally)…so you may see them here every week as long as they have something organizing related on sale.  This week it’s storage bins and shelves. This type of heavy duty wire shelf can easily be modified with the addition of corrugated plastic sheets cut to fit each shelf so that things don’t fall through the slots.  They are great for garages, basements, sheds, attics or any other “industrial” space.

Hefty clear latching storage bins

Metal “wire” shelving

Corrugated plastic sheeting (don’t get me started on located a recycled version of this stuff! Apparently it doesn’t yet exist…& it should!)

Seems like it’s a bit slim pickings this week but both Bed Bath and Beyond and the Container Store are carrying sales over from previous weeks so just look back to last week to see what they had that’s still on sale!

Sunday Savings

by heatherkp

I’m starting a new feature inspired by my time sitting and reading the Sunday paper and all the inevitable sales/coupons and flyer inserts.  I’ll share weekly deals (based on local Charleston, SC ads) for all sorts of organizing and design related products on a regular basis.  These deals may be different for your area so please check the links before you head out to buy something and please only buy it if you NEED it (use what you have first)!  So let’s get to this weeks deals!

Staples is offering a BOGO deal on Sharpies, who doesn’t love a bright assortment at hand.  I use sharpies for everything from note taking to color coded file labeling, labeling contents of ziploc bags and more.

The local weekly ad (Charleston area) features several Martha Stewart Home Office organizing products and a coupon for $3 off your purchase of $10 or more in these products.

Over at Target this week’s ad features lots of basic storage containers on sale.  As I always tell my clients, don’t go buy a bunch of storage containers to “get organized” but if you already have things that you need storage for then go for it.

Kmart is also running sales on containers and I personally love the line of Snapware containers they carry.

The Container store’s current sale is all about travel so if you have any trips planned now’s the time to check out their deals on luggage/bags, travel size containers and other travel essentials and goodies.

I love this “Pack This” list on sale for $4.99!

For those heading out for a road trip this Modular Organizer is a great way to keep things tidy by category or for each traveler.

…and this metallic bag by Baggallini is great weather you are heading out of the country or just out to the store!

If you see a great deal on organizing products this week either on line or in stores, please leave it in the comments below for others to enjoy.  Happy orgainzing and saving this week!
