Storage and Organization! {GIVEAWAY}



The winner is Jessica Gourley!!!

Yep. I put an exclamation point after that title, baby! Not only do I organize with the rest of the world in January as part of my non-resolution resolutions, and in the spring for “spring cleaning”, but I also get itchy to clean and organize when it is back to school time. By then we have survived a schedule free 3 months and my house is showing it. More time is spent outside than in. Every toy bin has magically turned into a miscellaneous bin, household items have migrated to new homes and can’t be found, and the closets have more clothes on the floor than on the hangers. So when the kids head off to school, I get my organizing groove on.

I have partnered with Home Decorators Collection and I am going to share some of my favorite storage and organizational products. They also have an AWESOME giveaway for you!!! But first, a little back story….

Seven years ago we had just moved into our first house (eeek!) and I was so excited. I had started planning on how to decorate and making lists of items we would need to buy. I have a slight addiction to topiary trees. I knew I NEEDED one. I couldn’t find one in my budget that looked realistic. I began searching online (these were the ‘ole dial-up internet connection days!). I read reviews and looked at a ton of pictures. I finally found one that had high reviews, looked SUPER realistic, and was by far the least expensive. It from a place called Home Decorators Collection. I had never heard of them but decided to take the chance and buy it.

When it came, I not only LOVED it, but realized by looking at the back of the slip with it that the company was owned by Home Depot. Ummmm, hello! Can we say match made in heaven?

I have been a fan ever since and get giddy every time a new catalog comes out :) This month it is all about getting organized!!!

Home Decorators Collection is going to be giving one lucky winner a $150 Gift Card!!!

Isn’t that awesome! Before we get to the giveaway I wanted to give you a taste of what they have to offer.

I am full on obsessed with baskets, crates, boxes, and bins. They hide clutter and are just so gosh darn perdy :)

Don’t have an office? Or do you hate the look of a standard metal filing cabinet? Check these bad boys out. They don’t even remotely look like a filing cabinet! During the years of  having our bedroom double as an office I would have loved to have some of these. I could have used them as a bedside table. They have even more options and taller ones as well.

Paper clutter is a HUGE issue at our house. Between bills, homework, artwork, and other random papers I feel swamped. And I can never fins a pen to save my soul. My post-it notes are usually written in crayon. I love all the fun (and colorful) options!

*I partnered with Home Decorators Collection for this giveaway. I was compensated for my time but the opinions and thoughts are all mine. Like always :)




  1. says

    I absolutely love Home Decorators and had a similar experience as you when we bought our home. WHAT?!? Decor connected to Home Depot? I’m in love! Thanks for the giveaway. Hugs, Holly @ coconutheadsurvivalguide

  2. Elizabeth H says

    Wow, didn’t know any of this. I love all the storage carts and burlap chests. Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

  3. says

    I have never seen that catalog and when I went on the site there are just sooooo many things that I love! I am into organizing at the moment and love the Oxford 60″W Storage Bench with Four Baskets as I have the perfect spot for it in my craft room and it would help to get me organized!

  4. Karen says

    I love the Urbane Area Rug. I’ve been looking for a new rug for my dining room and forgot all about Home Decorators.

  5. Mary Bergen says

    I am in organizing mode as well, ramping up for school and schedules to start. I would love to look through the catalog and find some new and beautiful organizing tools!!

  6. Darla says

    It would be hard to “really” choose, but the 8 drawer flat file by Martha could be put to good use immediately! Thanks. I’ve had mixed results with Home Decorators but would like to try again. :)

  7. Sandy says

    I love all the storage solutions and the Martha Stewart craft solutions. Really…I just love it all!! Thanks for the giveaway.

  8. says

    Remember how I was telling you I needed stools for my kitchen makeover? HDC’s Industrial Mansard stool would polish off the look of my kitchen reno just fine. Thanks for the chance to win.

  9. says

    What a fun giveaway! I love little boxes for organizing too, but right now I’m in a redecorating mode and I’m thinking the Wellman wall shelf would look really great in my laundry room. Then of course there was the corkboard… I should stop now too many things to love. Thanks for the giveaway. I adore you blog!

  10. says

    I love all their home organization stuff and storage…but was totally drawn to their tabletop selection of cake/cupcake stands and I really want the pro food processor or blender! Thanks for the giveaway chance! :)

  11. Linda Owens says

    Such a wonderful giveaway. I have so much organizing to do and would love to win this. Your blog is so interesting and informative I look forward to it every day.
    Linda O.

  12. says

    Ummmm. I’d like one of everything please!! I have a bar in my lower level I want to rip out and make a huge walk in closet. I don’t want to do ugly wire shelving but instead more of an installment. I hardly think the hubs will go for it. I much rather think he’d like to gut our 1960s style closet and put in a wall installment instead. Or add on a bathroom, but that’s not gonna happen anytime soon.
    Oh, did I mention I have ADD? ;)

  13. CT says

    I’d love to have a whole herd of the Stanton 6-Drawer Storage Carts. Love the look, and all the drawers.

  14. Christina G says

    What a great giveaway! I’m currently redoing my living room and am in desperate need for some organization and a way to hide some of these toys!! I have 4 kids from age 9 to 1 and my house is beginning to look like a preschool.

  15. Newton says

    I love Home Decorators! What a great giveaway! The Fadia Trunks that you posted above are perfect for the end of a bed!

  16. says

    We are starting our first year of homeschooling and organizing our homeschooling/office room for the first time. This would be so helpful! I am so in love with those wire baskets! I have been looking for some and now I know who has some great ones! Thanks for the chance to win!

  17. Judy Willoughby says

    I have a rug and sofa table I bought from them in the past. Love their products. Would love to actually go to the store and outlet someday!
    My dream piece or pieces since I can’t decide would be the Shutter Locker Storage or Southport Hall Bench or Ambrose Hall Tree. I have tried to “make’ my own version for my mud room but still not there. Would love to have one of those in there to organize the mess when you come in the door!

  18. Chelsea says

    This would be such a blessing to win! My husband, two year old, and I live in a small apartment and always need more creative storage!

    • says

      I’m in love with the shoe storage bench. I’d rather put it in the sewing room and store fat quarters than shoes :)

  19. says

    Thank you for introducing me to a whole new world of organizational tools. I have only known rubbermaid bins up until this point. Love!

  20. Barbara Brannon says

    Oh my . . . . I’m in trouble now! Had no idea this Home existed! I’m absolutely swooning over the drop leaf breakfast kitchen island! Exactly what I’ve been looking for – if I win this giveaway (thank you for this!) that would go far on the purchase price. Love your website and again – thank you for the giveaway!

  22. Paula Morrison says

    I am a container fanatic! I could and would use most any of the organizers you pictured! I love their catalog too!

  23. says

    Love these organization and storage tools. Each one I can add makes my life just a little easier and my husband, who likes less of my projects all over the house, even happier!

  24. Lisa says

    WOW!! Love the patina on these items … I could use more project space so the hopper cart would be amazing! thanks for the giveaway…

  25. Susan Miller says

    Wow! What a great giveaway! The items you chose are all so beautiful. I had not ever heard of Home Decorators Collection, but I am pretty sure I will be going to their site very often! The canvas suitcases and wire baskets are my favorite so far, but heck! I haven’t even scratched the surface of their site. WooHoo!

  26. says

    So much to choose from! I’ve been in my first house a year now and am slowing decorating. I need a TV stand and would love the Southport 2-Door TV stand!

  32. Kristen says

    wall shelves with hooks… too many cute options to narrow it down! There is one wall shelf with hooks and baskets, oh my word.

  33. Donna Williams says

    Wow, I never knew about this catalog sponsored by Home Depot until I found you! I love all of the Martha Stewart craft room organization pieces, especially the folding and corner craft tables. Like I would ever get it cleaned off to fold it up, LOL! Thanks for the chance to go shopping with them.

  34. Danita Courtney says

    Yes! Eye candy indeed! Who couldn’t use a bit more help with organization!!! I know I could; fabric hoarded that I am!!! Love the open wire baskest, then I can see what I already have and get neat about it! Thanks for this opportunity!

  35. says

    Thanks for the giveaway! I’m loving ALL of the pieces you pictured, but I’d seriously consider a filing cabinet option. Ours is in our great room, and very “blah”. :)

  36. Connie Herron says

    I love the Martha Stewart craft space line. There are a number of pieces I’d like to add to my craft room.

  37. MeganM. says

  38. Alicia Lindsay says

    I have been looking for a storage bench for the foot of our bed and after seeing your post I’m obsessed with the Corollary Shoe Storage Bench, but in the white with the distressed numbers. Obsessed! But man I found so many things that would be so beautiful in my house!

  39. Allyson says

    I am drooling over the trunks, I have been hunting for a trunk to hold all of my blankets in the house.

  40. Melissa says

    Wow!!! There is much to love!! I think my first purchase would be the wicker animal hamper….my daughter loves elephants and maybe it would encourage her to get the dirty clothes off her bedroom floor!

  41. says

    I like the shoe storage bench that looks like a card catalog! I love card catalogs! A friend of mine used a card catalog in her craft room (that I featured on my blog) for craft storage, and it looks just beautiful!

  42. Amy Jones#8546 says

    Martha Stewart Living™ Craft Space Apothecary Hutch is my favorite. There is so many great things for crafty storage I could just take it all… Wow. That would make one awesome crafty space.

  43. April says

    Home decorators has one smart marketing team. They were on the money choosing you to advertise for them. You made a customer out of me :-) I am always looking for new affordable but classy ways to organize. I love the wall hanging ironing station. My laundry room is tiny and this is the answer. Thanks so much for this article despite the winner of the contest, you made us all winners with this find.

  44. Christina says

    LOVE all things storage and organization. Would love to have the Ingrid Filing Cabinet or the Shoe Storage Bench you show. Ive been looking for these items for a month or so. Thanks for the giveaway! :) Home Depot ROCKS!

  45. Connie Kersten Haack says

    I am totally addicted to the vintage-industrial look, too! I love all the organizing possibilities with the bins, shelves, etc! I had no idea Home Decorators was affiliated with Home Depot – interesting! I haven’t looked at a HD catalog in years! Can’t wait to check out some of their new items!

    Thanks for sharing!!


  77. says

    I like the trunk file cabinet because I like to travel. I love Home Decorators Collection rugs. When we moved into our house we needed affordable rugs. I ordered a bunch from HDC. (Now they have a store just up the road from us, yay!) Their rugs are great. As an example, one of my cats insists on scratching the dining room HDC rug. He’s 5 years old and he scratches the rug daily. You cannot tell!! It’s held up perfectly through everything. And yes the cat does know what “no” means, he must like the HDC rug as much as we do.

  78. Taleah says

    One of my favorite pieces is the Martha Stewart Living – Craft Space Combination File and Open Storage Base.

    I’ve always wanted a nice craft store space where everything can be in one place. Hey, that rhymes… I am loving the Martha Stewart Craft Space 8-Drawer Flat File!

  86. Chelsea W says

    Wow…I was just browsing, not even looking for anything owl-related even though I’m an owl-fanatic, when I came across the cutest owl figurines in the “hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil” form. SO CUTE.

  87. says

  88. Jackie says

    I’m so glad there are so many others out there as crazy about organization as I am! I did not know about home but they are fantastic. Love the look of the rustic wine crate and produce crates. They BELONG in my recently redone pantry! Thanks for the great tips!
