    1. Hey Christi, sorry for the late reply. No, they don’t slide in and out like drawers because they are small bins attached together. She used tape to help them stick at the bottom of the drawer to prevent them from sliding whenever she opens the draw. I hope that helped 🙂

  1. I use crates zip tied together for my kids room and it works great. Also we have the same first name 😃Thought it interesting. I only knew of one other Falon before now.

      1. Are the organizer inserts the same size in the back as the fronts or are they taller in the backs? By taller in the backs, I mean like magazine holders where they gradually get taller. I hope my question makes sense. Also are the jars with the blue labels glass or plastic? Btw, that pantry area looks great.

        1. Hi Tammy, Terri is indeed correct, thanks to her for replying to your question. Most of the blue labeled jars in the pantry are glass the, the round and square ones are glass while the bulk containers are plastic. All from the dollar store. Hope that helped.

  2. Hi fellow organizers! Love the ideas, and I’ve done something similar with the small crates in my craft area, and in the bathroom cabinets. I just attached them the way it’s shown, and stacked them 3 high for the bathroom, and 5 high for the crafts. Fun, fun, Fun! 😊
