15 Baskets Make It Better ~ Easy Shed Organization

Basket Organization

I have been spending much of my free time gardening these days....total relaxation as I feed my plants...wait where is that fertilizer...I know I left my clippers right here....Has anyone seen my gloves???

Truth is...PURE FRUSTRATION because I couldn't find any of my gardening items when I needed them!! Zapping the joy right out of one of my favorite past-times.

Spending more time looking for what you need...

than doing what you intended??

That was my dilemma. I would get frustrated when I couldn't find my tomato fertilizer or garden gloves...so I would run to the store and BUY THEM AGAIN!!  

Disorganization ~  Wastes Time and Money $$

I'm sure I MUST be the only person who does this....spends $$ on something they have but can't find!
I had to get my little Garden Shed in Order...FAST!!
Let me show you what I was dealing with....

 Horrid... I know....No WONDER I couldn't find anything!!
Lots of wasted space...and shelves that were sloping down....

No Organization AT ALL!
First thing I did was EMPTY it out!!
Then I SORTED items into several piles:
  • trash (there was a lot of this!!)
  • donate
  • Outdoor Protection - Bug Spray, Insecticide, Pruning Tar, etc.
  • Fertilizers and Plant Food
  • Gardening Tools
  • Miscellaneous

Basket Love

I have been purchasing LOTS of baskets lately from the Dollar Tree! They come in several colors and shapes. You can even buy them on-line if you don't have a store near you!! They make SUCH a difference when organizing a space for a CHEAP PRICE!!
(You can see how I organized my Pantry with Target baskets here)

I grabbed a few baskets and started organizing!!
My Hubby fixed the sagging shelf!
I found some spray containers to take special care of my orchids!
You can read how EASY it is to grow Beautiful Orchids by clicking on the picture below.

So MUCH Better right??

Easy Shed Organiaztion with Baskets

Labels...Labels...Labels

Crazy to add Labels to an Outdoor Garden Shed?? I find that Labels make me ACCOUNTABLE!! It is hard to put something in the WRONG place when the CORRECT place is CLEARLY STARING AT YOU!!
In the past few months I have been adding Labels ALL over the place!! You can follow my LABEL LOVE Board on Pinterest here.

I made some QUICK Labels on my Computer...
Laminated...

Placed labels on Baskets with some Velcro Dots...

In the Protect Me Basket I added Bug Spray for people and Plants
In the Feed Me Basket I added Plant Food/ Fertilizers
Placed Our FUN Pool Party Lights in a Quick to Grab Basket...just waiting for our next Gathering!


Time and Money Saved = Happiness!

When completing even the smallest Organizing Project I get a large sense of ACCOMPLISHMENT! Now I know where everything is and what I REALLY need to purchase before my next Gardening Day!
