Alright, so today’s post is nothing fancy but sometimes we need to set aside the pretty pictures and get a little behind the scenes! Now, let’s talk organization. I’ll be the first to admit I need a little help in this area. When I’m flying through 5 different projects a day and jumping from one thing to the next things can get a little crazy.
SO… when the time came for me to clean up the old paint cans at our old home I was a little terrified. Let’s just say it took me a few hours to go through them all. Yes, that many. Anyway, I wanted to leave all the paint cans behind that matched the colors I used in the house but they looked awful. So I ended up Organizing Paint Cans using $2 cans from the hardware store and chalkboard labels.
Most of my paint was either almost gone or was enough to fit into a few quart cans. So that’s the size I used. You can pick them up on Amazon for just $1.75 each. And those fun chalkboard labels, you can buy those for just $8 for 24 labels.
And what I love most, is that once you use all the paint, you can just rinse out the can and change the label.
Easy and inexpensive organization project for just a few bucks.
And now that we have some clean-up work out of the way, tomorrow I’ll be back with a new project :)

Great idea! So simple, but yet so effective in organizing. I bet the new owners of the house just loved it! :) Thanks for the great tip!
