A Thrifty Organizer


The New Year always brings about the need for organization.

I absolutely hate filing.  I despise it with a passion and I never seem to be able to keep track of all of those receipts I'll eventually need when I want to return something.

The other day I was looking around the thrift store for ideas on organizing, when I spotted a wire dish washing rack.  Files fit perfectly in it and I can put pencils and pens in the silverware bucket.  
I also found some pretty files at Michaels for a $1.  

The pretty files make is so much more appealing to do that oh so boring chore and I can pick up the entire rack and move it when I want to!
  
Any thrifty tips on what you're using for various things you need to organize? 

Also, someone asked for a download of the labels I created for the Spread the Love Butter.  
 You can find it here.

Great idea! My files are far too unattractive for such display; however, tucking them away doesn't seem to be productive. :/ I found a dishrack at a thrift store and used it to keep all my kids books tidy in the car. Love finding new purposes for castaways.
