Canadian Tire – making 2011 the year to get organized

31 Jan

January was the month we all made resolutions to better some thing or another in our lives. Whether it was to be nicer to people, lose weight or like I did, made a personal goal of being more organized around the home. Cleaning up the closets, organizing the kids rooms, basement and laundry room, mostly just trying to keep things in place.

I am organized to a certain extent but it could use some improvement. All things that could be prevented from piling up by simply using the right organizing tools to get my home the way I want it, or at least closer to the way I want it. We live in a house with little storage space except for the basement. Shelves and closets become piled up with things that should be organized into bins and storage containers. Everything properly put in their respective places. It always seems there is too much stuff and not enough places to put it all away.

Canadian Tire wants to help make 2011 the year moms like you and me become more organized in our homes. For every room in the house that needs organizing, Canadian Tire has a new line of eco-friendly storage solutions that are perfect for the job! Canadian Tire was generous enough to send me some to try out for myself!

Blue Planet Family Laundry Basket:

Update your laundry room with new eco-friendly laundry baskets
– Soft grip handles for added comfort and support
– Made durable with recyclable materials.

Blue Planet Storage Caddy:

– Deep storage compartments make organizing cleaning and laundry products easier
– Handle allows you to easily transport cleaning products from room to room
– Made durable and with recyclable materials.

2 Blue Planet Stackable Bins:

– Stack multiple bins for added storage space
– Stack these in your closet to easily organize spring/summer accessories like belts, sunglasses, toys and more!

Manufactured by Gracious Living, all of the products reviewed are 100% recyclable.

In my opinion these storage containers are great and are coming in quite handy in helping us organize our home for 2011! With the amount of laundry we have on a weekly basis, you can never have too many laundry baskets. It helps having a laundry basket assigned to each bedroom making it easier to sort out everyone’s clothes when laundry day comes along.

The storage caddy is neat because I never had one before, I always just throw my cleaning supplies in an old plastic bin, they usually become quite the disorganized mess when I’m cleaning up one of the kids messes in a hurry. Now I can have everything within my reach, neatly stored away under the sink where I usually put it.

We haven’t decided what we are going to organize with the stackable bins but there are lots of things we can do with these. Maybe to store some things under the desk in the office or maybe hubby can reorganize his tools in the workshop. We could even use them to organize some of the kids toys in the play area downstairs. Really useful, I don’t know why I didn’t think of getting some of these sooner!

Knowing they are inexpensive, eco-friendly and well-designed for everyday storage needs, I’m happy to say they are really helping me make my home a more organized place! For more information about Canadian Tires new line of eco-friendly storage containers please visit www.canadiantire.ca

    A search returned 34 Blue Planet products ranging from cleaning products, toiletries, lightbulbs, storage containers and more. I’d be interested in the cleaning products since I like to keep things green for the kids
