Staying Organized Through the Holidays

Staying Organized Through the Holidays with Bento #PMedia #holidaybento

Staying organized during the holidays seems like such a daunting task.  I have so many things piling up, including holiday decorating, sending out cards, keeping up with the blog, work, family, shopping and wrapping…it seems like there is never an end in site!  This year I feel it’s especially necessary to stay organized because we only have 3 weeks until Christmas!!! 3 weeks!!! 

Of course as I geared up to decorate the house, I headed over to Target because they always have whatever it is I need.  After loading my cart with tons of ornaments, holiday cards, wrapping paper, and other random very important things, I walked past these new Rubbermaid Bento Organizing Containers.  Target was displaying them on a main aisle, and it was a good thing because I would have been in too much of a rush to have seen them otherwise.  I immediately fell in love with these Bento’s because they aren’t like other storage containers…they have flex dividers which you can pop and move any which way and that allows for countless configurations, meaning you can fit whatever you need in these bad boys!

This large size was perfect and I immediately knew I would use it to organize my ornaments, hooks, and various Christmas tree décor.

After loading everything into the Rubbermaid Bento, we got to decorating!  My son just turned 3 (yesterday!), and he was totally into decorating the tree this year! He liked it last year for about 3 minutes, but this year was a big improvement…not to say there weren’t any little breaks taken….

Soon enough we were at the bottom of the Rubbermaid Bento Organizer, and we were finished with the tree!

Now that he tree was finished, I moved on to my next tasks….wrapping gifts and writing cards.  I really love smaller Rubbermaid Bento Organizer for smaller items. I collected everything I would need while wrapping and writing out cards, and organized it into the Bento.

It fit my scissors, tape, wrapping twine, ribbon, labels, pens, and cards perfectly. I also love the cute design on this Bento! They had other really cute patterns as well, but I decided to get the smaller and larger to match!

Love this design!

Anyway, the smaller organizer really helped me keep everything together, instead of a million random places and eventually lost. It’s a total pain digging around my storage closet for the wrapping twine or extra roll of tape and with this storage container I had everything easily accessible.

I got all my gifts wrapped and under the tree in no time with this easy system!
