Organizing with Tiffany

I ADORE Tiffany. Maybe a bit too much. In fact, if you knew who Tiffany was, you’d like her too. Lately, I’ve been on a spring cleaning rampage and Tiffany did me GOOD! She helped me get totally organized. But that’s not all, she got things organized and made them pretty. For me, that’s a very important combination. 

So let me reveal who Tiffany is (you may already know her, she’s actually VERY famous). Actually Tiffany(s) are my shopping bags that I tend to hoard. I’m not the only one guilty of this addictive habit, I’m sure. My husband gives me grief about saving EVERY shopping bag I bring home. I’m the type of person who likes to keep things for the sake of keeping (AKA hoarder). I mean, I even have stacks of discounted X-Mas cards when I don’t even send them out! Well, I’m working on that…

My DIY vision board has been in a state of craziness. It started off nice, simple, clean, and very inspiring. Then it slowly became a storage space for everything from invites, pictures, cards, to receipts. It was kinda driving me insane and completely not eye-pleasing. So I did something that my husband would’ve been proud- made use of my shopping bags! (See hunnie, I told you they were going to be useful… someday!)

Now that my board has come to life again, I feel like I can breathe better!

PS. This should NOT be a reason to go shopping!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog :). This is gorgeous, I couldn’t part with the bags but they have just been gathering dust. I’m definitely going to try this out.

  3. This is REALLY cool! I know that word gets thrown out there loosely, but I really think these ideas are! Good stuff and keep it up!

  4. This is so cool! Love the idea… so much that I want to update my writing space with a few cool bags. Thanks for sharing and also for visiting my blog. :)

  5. LOVE that idea! I am a collector of the Godiva bags myself.
    Here’s an idea for your Christmas cards….besides mailing them out.
    Go to your local liquor store and ask for an empty box with dividers.
    Cut the front of the Christmas cards off and decoupage the cards onto the empty liquor box and you have a beautifully decorated ornament box.

  6. this is a great idea! I dont have many shopping bags but I am sure that some of the ones that I do come across would work perfectly! My only question is how did you get them to hold the weight of some of the things that you put in there? My one thought was maybe a small piece of cardboard on the bottom might help with sturdiness. either way it is a fantastic idea!

    • Hi, I used push pins on the inside of the bags to hang them onto the bulletin board. Good luck and enjoy! Kellie

  7. I just found this on Pinterest. I absolutely love it, Like you I am obsessed with Tiffany and Company (I actually have a Tiffany themed blog) I would love to try this. How did you stick the bags to the board?

    Helloooo ! Such a great idea ! Were did you buy your mug ? So cute !!

  9. I love this idea, it looks so beautiful as well as being useful! How did you stick the bags on? I’m going to hang my bags from picture hooks on a cork board so I can see them – instead of having them all on top of each other on a hook – thanks so much for the inspiration! And thank you for liking my blog!

    you have totally inspired me! i have collages and vision boards around my room that help to organize my life !

  11. Looks nice and very organized! My work area instead is like the mad scientist work bench more then anything else!
    Thanks for coming by and the Follow!

  12. This is really cute! I save shopping bags too, but mostly because our locality has started charging a tax every time we take one in the store, so I’m all about reusing!! p.s. Thanks for deciding to follow Discover Santosha.

  13. Oh, I can already tell that your blog and I are going to be the best of friends. ;-)

    It is evident you have put much time, thought, and detail into your design, and now this is a place people enjoy coming to. I look forward to my return visits.

    Have a lovely day,

    this is such a cute and crafty idea! i shall definitely be trying this one out :)

  16. I absolutely love this! Amazing idea! I have a ton of bag from VS and now they can come to good use! I love this :)

  17. Great way to upcycle these lovelies. I recently did a DIY where i covered some boxes (including shoe boxes!) with contact paper for storage.

  18. Hey! Thanks for the great idea! :D I don’t have any Tiffany’s bags right now, but I do have a few very loved ones from Sephora, the Face Shop, etc.

  19. Very smart and personal but most importantly now I understand why your work is so sleek and harmonious…my desk looks like a dumpster/changing table in comparison.

  20. That is a fantastic idea! Those bags are like little inspirations themselves so not only are they functional but they make you happy too!

    Finally a displayed usage for the collection of gift bags. Some of them have such lovely designs on them but they get passed around a few times and then get relegated to a corner.
