I have all of my plastic lids in one place. It makes finding the right one much easier!

I love having pull-out cabinets in my kitchen!! I have my plastic cups down low so my kids can reach them when they need a drink.
(The glasses behind them are ones we don't use that often, but I have them if I need them)

I have a bin for office supplies, cards, envelopes, staplers, etc....

One cabinet has bins for play-doh, glue/tape, pix-os, etc...

Having a bin for all my cables and chargers is GREAT!
