That Time I Hit The Jackpot

I suppose I should start by clarifying. No, I did not win millions playing a slot machine or scratching my addicting cashwords lottery tickets.

When I talk about hitting the jackpot, I am talking about these beautiful silver bins! 

Last year, I purchased three bins from TJ Maxx that I thought would look great in my new home office, At that point, I didn't even have a newly decorated home office but I did have all kinds of ideas in my head for what I wanted it to look like, and the bins I found at TJ Maxx were perfect!

I posted this picture on instagram about a year ago, showcasing the bins:

The three bins ended up matching my vision perfectly, and were shown on the blog again with I did my Home Office Reveal this summer. 

They ended up matching the home office perfectly and to say I was in love with the bins would be an understatement. 

About a month ago, I was in TJ Maxx with my mom when I came across matching bins, and I knew it was meant to be. I was looking for baskets for my craft closet, and these were once again pure perfection. I filled my entire cart and bought every single one they had. I figured if I didn't use them all I could always return them, but if I didn't buy them all, I'd be kicking myself later.
I seriously felt like I had hit the jackpot!

When I got home, they ended up being a perfect fit for the shelves in my craft closet. The only problem was there were two patterns that I needed just one bin more of, and I knew I had bought the store out, so I decided I would just have to make it work... UNTIL:
A few weeks later, I went to Marshall's about half hour away just for fun. When I got to the aisle of storage bins and baskets, they had the two bins I needed!! What are the chances of that?! I snatched those babies up so fast.

After that, it was a sure thing: I had indeed hit the freaking jackpot! 

Seriously though, aren't they beautiful? 

I'm obsessed... maybe a little too obsessed.
I still can't decide which pattern I like best, they are all just... perfect!

I can't wait to reveal my finished craft closet! Just a few final touches before I show it off!

Happy Monday!


  1. How beautiful! And what great luck, too! All of the patterns work so well together.

  2. Love those! Also, I am crazy jealous of your gorgeous workspace. I can't wait until we have room for me to set up a little home office! From now I just blog sitting on my bed!

  3. Oh my gosh, I love when this happens! It's so hard because you never know what those stores will have, but it was definitely meant to be! They're all so cute!

  4. Love those bins! Can't wait to see what they look in your craft closet :)
