One of the reasons I am so addicted to organizing is because of the freedom it allows me to have by being prepared for most things that might be thrown at me. Of course I can’t possibly predict and be ready for everything but most definitely I can eliminate many stresses simply by taking the necessary steps ahead of time to be ready for whatever comes my way. It’s an amazing way to avoid last minute disasters and to embrace spontaneous moments which is the case with our Storage Star today.
Jessica from Life As Mom recently did a post about the activity bags she keeps packed and ready to go tucked away in a closet until needed. I really love this idea and even do this myself because around here the sun comes and goes so quickly it pays to be ready in order to get out and enjoy it. And believe me nothing is worse than being out for a picnic by the river on a gorgeous day only to be pestered by darn mosquitos. Keep bug spray packed and ready to go in your picnic bag and no more worries about forgetting it!
Here are Jessica’s bags all ready for fun.
I like to call it being spontaneously prepared :) In the summer time I actually keep my beach bag packed and ready to go in the van just in case. Of course you can use whatever size bag you need for whatever activity you most want to be prepared for.
Jessica makes this task of preparing your bags super easy as well by providing printable bag tags that you can just print off, laminate and attach to your bags for quick and easy packing and repacking.
Head on over to Jessica’s site for the printable tags and step by step instructions.
Thanks Jessica for sharing this with us today, enjoy your Storage Star!!
