Canvas bags, boxes and baskets for organizing

Let’s be honest, all of us got into the fever of organizing our spaces with the Mari Kondo style and, generally, I think we all crave some more organization in our lives after the pandemic threw everything we knew astray. However, while places like Amazon have a ton of products that can help you organize, you will have to pay the retail fee on those.

Why not get them all at the thrift store? You can find a lot of them around, in all shapes and sizes, and they will be only a fraction of the price you saw in other stores or online. Moreover, besides all the boxes, baskets, and trays, you can always find tote bags! Not only will they come in handy when you go shopping or keeping things away in your trunk, but they can also be extremely helpful just to have with you; you never know when you’re going to buy something new!

  1. Let’s not forget electronics! Some of the best electronics gadgets I have came from a thrift store. One that I use daily is a Fisher cd player. I bought this over 10 years ago for $5. It was an older model, but still in it’s original package. After getting it home, I emptied the box to see what my small investment included. I was shocked when it appeared that it had never been out of the box… ever! From the protective plastic on the digital readout, the factory packing, and even the unwrapped batteries it came with! It was like grandpa had gotten it from the grandkids but never had use for it. Treasures like this are rare, but always a welcomed addition.

  2. Went for a specific item, a walker for my Mom. Had several to choose from and the one I chose was discounted even further at the register. I had no idea.

  3. I will shop at both ARC and Good Will. I love buying books there, although Good Will has much better organization of their bookshelves.
    I’ve found great deals on collectible teapots and teacups, and I always buy a package of random greeting cards.
