The other day I was having a “craft night” with my neighbors and we were all making “no soliciting” signs. The host offered to give a house tour and if there was such thing as a hobby as “house touring” it would be one of my top hobbies. I guess there are people who frequently go to home shows, so maybe it is a legit hobby? I will pretend so. Anyway, we headed down to the basement and I was in complete organizational envy when I saw her storage room. The room was lined with beautiful wooden shelves and all of the totes were stacked in a row. Ahhhhhhhh. I geek out over  a few strange things…school supplies, freshly cut grass, and an organized home to name a few. We have been in our home now for almost two years and our tote/storage situation was getting a little out of hand.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I came home gushing about how flowers and chocolates were not for me…I desperately wanted Storage Shelves to organize my basement with. My husband being the loving man that he is was willing to grant my wish and off to Home Depot we went (after hitting up In and Out burger) of course. *If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen this…super hot date, I promise!
