This morning I went to Michael’s with one thing in mind. I told myself I will not stray but obviously that didn’t work. I wanted to get baskets to store my toiletries in because I’m trying to have more organization around here. Yes everything is stacked up neatly, but I just wanted them to be grouped in containers that I could find them better. Well I got my baskets and I just couldn’t help but go in search of other goodies! So let’s start this haul!
After I decided on 3 baskets, I went looking for invitation ideas. As I said before, we’re moving, and I want to do a housewarming and be a little old fashioned with invites. I love my craft as well so I wasn’t just looking for regular invitations. In searching for note cards with our last name initial on it, I got awfully sidelined and ended up getting more stuff than I could ever imagine. Everything was under $2!!!
Cards, stamps and ink pads
I have a fascination with notebooks/journals/paper. When I saw these journals I thought ok, maybe one Symone… But nooooo! They all looked so pretty I couldn’t help but get these (there were more but these were my fave, so imagine my heartbreak!). I also found a memo cube with our initial so I picked that up as well. I believe in writing notes, I don’t always remember to check the extra notes in my phone >_<.

Next, I picked up some trinkets for my dresser. I’m trying to make my space more feminine and personal. I thought these frames were adorable (and in my colours) and I love the ceramic owls for dropping my daily jewelry must-haves in if I’m too lazy to put them up properly.

For my last two items, the colour drew me in more than anything. I love the colours for the coupon folder! I got this so that I can now free up my purse. The size is perfect to drop into my handbag, and it’s cute! I never liked the plastic ones people use and I don’t carry that many coupons to have something that big. The other set of paper so neatly wrapped up are recipe cards. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while (the white index cards just aren’t doing it for me). I know I’ll be on the hunt for a cute box to store them in that is kitchen-friendly. Maybe I may pull out recipes more now haha!

I only decided to do this post after I packed everything away in the baskets so another time I’ll take things out and take pictures. The baskets were also a very good deal. Michael’s has 40% off all Ashland baskets so I paid under $30 for 3 baskets! I love Michael’s! I could get lost in there for hours but I still need money to buy other goodies hahaha.
Hope you enjoyed this post!
