Dollar Store "Crap Buckets"

In May I came across this hilarious (and totally relatable) post by Emily at Remarkable Home for Crap Buckets. Once I got done cracking up, I realized that I absolutely needed these in my life. (If you have kids, no explanation of these should be necessary but I'll share my version anyway.)

First let me say 2 very important things about my version of these.

#1. I wasn't looking to spend a ton of time on these.
#2. I wasn't looking to spend a lot of money on them.

I don't know about you, but when I want something cheap and functional, I think of the Dollar Store. So that is where I dragged took my kids after school one day to pick out their buckets.

The boy chose green.




The girl chose orange. (No pink available)




We took them home and used Daddy's label maker to put their names on them. (Please see #1 above.)

I then explained what they were and how I would expect them to function. And then stuck them near the lower landing of the stairs.


Voila!! Fast, cheap organization just in time for the craziness of summer!

And they actually work! It's amazing, I can fill them up with all the crap that belongs upstairs and the kids will take the stuff up there and put it away. Although, I have noticed that my son's works more quickly than my daughter's for some reason......

And I may live to regret telling my children what they are called....

Nah.

Have a great week!
