It’s no secret that we have a tiny house clocking in at just over 800 square feet. And it’s no shocker that organizing in here is our #1 challenge. Today we are teaming up with OXO & The Container Store to get some of our spaces organized and bring you an awesome giveaway!
In my past life I actually worked at a large department store and sold exactly 1 million of these OXO POP containers. They are the best of the best and every single person I sold them to came back again and again for more of them. There is just something so satisfying about that “pop” and they are incredibly well made.
So recently when I was thinking about products I loved I reached out to OXO to see about bringing some of their awesome products to you guys. We are so excited that they were able to provided us with product for this post and LOTS of products for you to win!
I stalked the mailman for days waiting for these to arrive and when they did I knew exactly which corner of our kitchen needed some serious help…..the baking cabinet. Ahhhhh.
Not only did it look like a mess but other cabinets contents had creeped into it (gummy bear vitamins anyone? how about some bug spray with your cake?). But this wasn’t even all the baking supplies I normally keep. I had refrained from buying all the right ingredients I needed because I just didn’t know where to put them.
OXO to the rescue!
I love my baking cabinet now! The POP containers are perfect for our small spaces because they are flat and stack easily with each other or act as great little rests for other containers or even cans.
I also found out that they work amazingly well with my favorite alcohol pens! These pens are awesome, they write like a permanent marker and are completely waterproof but they come off easily with a swipe of rubbing alcohol. I discovered these when we were creating our day planner for bloggers….the Blog Buddy. We needed something that wouldn’t rub off on the bookmark but could be removed and these were the secret! Now I use them everywhere I can!
I found at the end of my organizing spree though that I still had a few containers left so I went through the house and decided to tackled all the things that my kids got into all the time.
Thumbtacks were constantly causing poked fingers from little hands rifling through a drawer overhead. We made quick work stopping that.
And since we usually only have 1 containers of cereal on hand at a time and 1 of the oatmeal I used our last container to finally keep the cat food from being spread all over the house from the cat and the kiddos.
Finally (and perhaps my most genius) was discovering that the tall pasta container made a perfect home for the ehm….toilet brush.
It fits perfect and until the 3 year old figures out how to open it we will be relatively safe.
It turns out that POP containers are also awesome blocks to stack and unstack while mommy tries to take photos.
