Fun and Functional Storage Solutions from Scout
Some of you may have never heard of Scout brand bins and totes and for this post, you will thank me.
You. Are. Welcome.
Scout is a brand developed by Bungalow (their Twitter is @scoutbybungalow ) in answer to the question,
"Why can't I find a fun, colorful, sturdy yet stylish tote bag?"
What I love about Scout bins and totes:
(Note: these are in no particular order. Not sure why I had to point that out I just felt like I did.)
1. Many (most?) are splash resistant and in fact, you clean them by hosing them down!
2. The fabric is sturdy yet very lightweight and some of my friends have been known to pack totes and bins in the bottom of their suitcase to keep things organized on vacation!
3. COLOR COLOR COLOR and fun patterns and such cute designs bin and...
4. Scout bins and totes make my clutter look pretty!
5. Affordable storage! (bins start at less than $20 and totes start at less than $30) Just ask my friend Linsday who had a "bintervention" on the Nate Berkus show.

You get the idea. And if you don't I have a few photos of some of the goodies Artisans sells in addition to a huge Scout collection.

Above: bracelet made with paper beads that support women-owned businesses in Africa, yummy smelling soap and candle, fancy nail file, and my favorite brand of lotion, Thymes.
Disclosure: I participated in a blogger Scout preview event at Artisans. I received good bags of product as a thank you for coming to the event. I also purchased product at the event. Since I like long disclosures I will tell you what I bought but you have to promise not to tell the girls! I bought my mom a tote and the girls each got a bag (waterproof YAY) to use at the pool this summer. Can't wait to show you!
