Organize With Flowerpots

Organize With Flowerpots

Organize in every room of your home with simple flowerpots of all sizes.

Green thumb or not, you can use flowerpots to control the chaos while adding style and whimsy. With colours and sizes for all styles and spaces, you’ll wonder how you ever organized without them. Plus, they’re endlessly reusable.

A Better Bathroom
Group a variety of flowerpot sizes together for a stylish vignette. Put three or so of the same size in a row (especially on a shelf or windowsill).

Tip: Glazed pots are easier to wipe down and clean than unfinished terracotta.
Small-to-medium pots can hold just about any of your bathroom odds and ends, but they’re especially useful for:

  • Toothbrushes and toothpaste (use one with a hole in the bottom for drainage here)
  • Makeup brushes
  • Cotton balls, swabs and pads
  • Hair brushes and combs

Don’t forget about the saucers! They’ll match perfectly and are great for holding:

  • Bobby pins and hair ties
  • Jewellery
  • Bars of soap

Tip: A medium-to-large flowerpot is a practical (and safe) place to store hot flat irons or curling irons while they’re in use — and to stow them when they’re turned off.

Positively Entertaining
Flowerpots are great for setting your table, particularly for outdoor dining and entertaining. Here are a few simple ways to put them to use:

  • Fill a large glazed pot with ice and use it to chill soda and bottled water. Just remember if there’s a drainage hole, you may want a saucer underneath.
  • Use small pots to hold forks, knives, spoons, napkins, straws, etc. You can mix the utensils together and place one every few seats, or separate them out by type and put them at the start of a buffet. Decorate them with ribbons or chalkboard labels for a little something extra.
  • Entertaining outdoors? Find a large flowerpot with a matching saucer. Place the saucer in the top opening of the pot to create a table — with storage inside!

Tip: You’ll want to check that they fit properly in the store, and paint away to make it fit your personal style. Now you have an outdoor side table!

Make Your Workspace Work For You
Whether it’s your space or your kid’s, flowerpots are perfectly suited to organizing where you work. Try them (in small and medium sizes) for:

  • Pens, markers and pencils
  • Paintbrushes
  • Paperclips and binder clips
  • Scrap paper, index cards and note cards

Controlling Clutter
There are certain items that always seem to get in the way. No longer!

  • Use a large (think decorative here) flowerpot to hold umbrellas right inside your door. They work well for sunscreen and other things you need to grab on your way out the door, too.
  • Cords don’t have to mean chaos! Make a phone charging station with a wide pot (look for one on the shallow side, rather than deep) that has a drainage hole. Plug the chargers into the wall and bring the cords up through the hole. Plug your devices in and ta-da! Easy.
  • Kids’ toys taking over? Toss ’em in a pot — they’re way more aesthetically pleasing than plastic storage bins, whether alone or in multiples, on your shelves or on the floor. Think Legos, dolls, wood blocks, dress-up clothes, miniature cars — you name it. For small items, you’ll just want to make sure there’s no drainage hole — or just duct tape over it.

Have some fun with colour and mixing-and-matching styles and sizes — but mostly, have fun with a simple way to get organized!
