hello crates!

IMG_1

as i have mentioned before, little green is very short on space. thus, our obsession for crates knows no bounds. (remember our post here and here?) we love them!

our latest haul of crates came from two different places, the dollar store and our local thrift store. in total we spend only $4.50 on them. i would say that they were a pretty good deal. ;-)))

the first crate hangs above my sewing station. it is the perfect size for holding my little bobbins.

the second crate can be found beside our front door. this is where we put all of our current bills. hello responsible home ownership!

we removed the handle on the third crate, so that it may comfortably display one of our cameras in our beloved camera station. this particular area is becoming one of my favorites!

what tricks do you have to save on space around your home?

  1. These crates look great! So simple!

    • yes, it’s amazing sometimes what you can find at thrift stores, and then transform into beautiful yet useful pieces once you bring them home!

  • I was intending for this video to only be in my stories. After watching it again and again, I decided to post it in my feed as well. I wish to never forget moments like these. Remy’s typical game of asking to go in her crib only to throw everything out of it and pretend to go to sleep. Or her new one- taking her rings in with her and playing with them (after she throws everything out, of course). She makes me say every colour before going to the next one. Then she stacks them up, gets out, and shelves the toy until we have to repeat the game all over again. I let her make her messes all while trying to spend every spare minute with her. These are our days and rituals. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t wake up with this much energy.
