Growing up, I always loved to get new plastic storage boxes to keep my pens and markers in. A box filled with shiny new supplies seemed so full of possibility. Truthfully, I love boxes and bags of all kinds, which is why I practically drooled when we went to The Container Store for the first time. Organization makes my heart happy, and today I still have versions of those storage boxes filled with supplies. These are my grown up toolboxes.
This pink Craftsman tool tote is the perfect container for my grown up school supplies. I can’t take credit for this idea. I first saw it on a Planner Addicts Facebook group started by the A Bowl Full of Lemons blog. Members of the group kept singing the praises of this tote and its usefulness, so of course I gave in to their enabling and picked one up. I use mine for a mobile office of sorts. It has everything I need for planning and writing. I stash a couple boxes of blank cards along with some stamps in it so I can work on encouragement cards. It has some of my favorite pens, notebooks, and sticky notes as well. Everything can easily be carried from my office to other parts of the house so I can work while watching tv with M or enjoying some time on our back porch. I just love it!
I’ve had this second toolbox for a few months now, and it gets constant use as my sewing bag. It’s the Keep It Caddy from Thirty One Gifts. It lives on our coffee table most of the time and is filled with everything I need for hand piecing and quilting.
Having everything I need for my favorite hobbies organized neatly really makes me feel more productive. It doesn’t hurt that these toolboxes are so cute!
