In an attempt to get my life in order I have been organizing everything in sight. One particular eye sore has been the dining room which over time had collected all sorts of things that didn't belong anywhere else. Like bags of dog food and lots of cans. Below you can see the last of them but tomorrow there will be 24 more cans there.
It was really cluttering up the room and making it look very unfinished. I'm going to share how I easily organized the dog food with a bucket, and in plain sight no less!
Disclosure: I was compensated for doing this post with product. However, all the opinions stated here are my own. I only use products I love and would recommend to my viewers.
And now I hear you saying why not put these things in the pantry or in a cabinet in the kitchen? Have I ever mentioned just how tiny my kitchen is? When I stand in the middle with my arms extended I can touch either side of the cabinets. Both ways! And with a big family to feed, you know each and every inch of that storage space is valuable. So it was not going to be wasted on dog food, as much as I love my pupster!
I had seen this idea by Inspiration Made Simple on the internet and wanted to copy it. I went to Home Depot looking for that bucket but no luck! What they had available was either too big or too small.
Yes, I could have gone to another store to look for that perfect bucket but I was in a hurry! I was a woman with a mission. I had to get the house in order fast, because we were expecting company the next day! Do you ever get motivated to do serious tidying up when you are expecting company? And then realize it is all too much?
Instead I found this alternative. It was a plastic bucket that closed really well in a 10 gallon size.

What I Used:
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
