Could totally organize my daughter's desk using shoe boxes from having a shoe fetish haha.I knew all that shoe buying would come in handy :) could use my son's smaller shoe boxes for mini organizers for his coloring books!
Good idea for storing ribbon. Ribbon Organizer: Perhaps it's time to graduate from the shopping-bag school of organization. Ribbons will stay untangled and ready to use in this easily made box (a shoebox will do). From Martha Stewart.
For all those art supplies. DIY project du jour: Shoe box + toilet paper tubes (and/or paper towel tube pieces) = storage for pens and other office/art supplies (via Aunt Peaches) More paper tube repurposing ideas: here.
