Home Depot Rubbermaid All Access Containers

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Home Depot & Rubbermaid, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #AllAccessOrganizers  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

It's no secret we are moving to a new home soon.
It's also no secret that I am short.
I was born short and have stayed short my whole life.
I have come to terms that, as I age, I will get even shorter LOL.
Because I am vertically challenged, 
I have difficulty reaching items on the higher shelves.
It sometimes becomes a seriously dangerous problem.

With this move I have already been setting some goals for the new home:
I will keep items at a reasonable level so that I can reach them easily and safely and, I will start, and stay, organized. 

Thank goodness I was selected to be involved with this campaign with Home Depot and Rubbermaid, so that achieving my goals should be that much easier!

Here is just one of my nemeses:
The main coat closet.  
We will have one exactly like it at the new house.

Check out my feeble attempt to "organize" the light bulbs and our winter hats and gloves in shoe boxes.
Who's your favorite creative crafter?  Yeah, wasn't me that day LOL!

If I needed to replace a 60 watt light bulb or grab a pair of gloves
I was usually thumped on the head by a stray bulb or hat.
Seriously, not safe at all.
When I saw the Rubbermaid All Access Containers at Home Depot I knew they
were made just for me!
Rubbermaid All Access Containers are so perfect for any type of organizing. 
I got one small and one large. 
I love that they open from the front as well as the top.
The NEW All Access™ Organizers 
feature an
    innovative, clear drop-down door 
making it so easy to open when they are stacked on top of each other.
Also perfect for what I had planned!

First, I slowly took everything off the shelf.
I also dusted the shelf and, I took this photo after but, I dealt with more cobwebs.
(remember the BIG one I showed you when I cleaned my bedroom closet?
Imagine 5-6 just like it in this closet.
Goal #3: Dust closets more often)

I then placed all of the light bulbs, loose and those still in
packaging, in the large container
And all of our winter hats and gloves in the smaller container.
Thereby eliminating 3 useless and unattractive shoe boxes!
Now, I can easily see what I need and, I can just pull open the 
front door of the container
and, have easy access to what I want whether it be in the top or bottom bin!
And, because they stack so nicely, I can keep them on the floor
of the closet and not risk a concussion just to get a pair of gloves!

Once we get moved, my plan is to get more of the smaller bins.
Just like the label says, the possibilities are truly endless for organizing closets, laundry rooms, craft rooms or anywhere storage is needed.

What about you?  
Do you have a challenging organizational story to share?
