We have a lot of stuff! Wait, check that, I have a lot of stuff. Is has some stuff, but most of it is confined to the garage due to lack of room in the actual house, over-ridden with my stuff. Stuff, junk, things, chatchkies, crap, necessary items. A lot of stuff. And add in the baby and a fashion crazed teen, we have too much stuff. I need some storage solutions people! Also, I could get rid of some stuff. But honestly, I’m a closet hoarder, and I’m gravely afraid that the moment I get rid of something I will find a use for it.
Even though I am hesitant to just “clean house” per say, I have been getting rid of things in a slow, untimely manner over the past few months, since just before Ike was born (call it nesting maybe?). Lately, I’ve had a bug about finding a logical storage system for the remaining stuff (junk) in the clutter sinks of our home. These sinks have been identified as the worst offenders:
1. Bathroom cabinets
2. Kitchen pantry
3. Coat closet (which also doubles as cleaning supply closet and extra living room throw blankets storage)
4. Linen closet
5. Garage (yikes)
I started with the bathroom, since this is the area I see (second) most and is easily attackable after Ike goes to bed.
Here’s the cabinets before.
Aaaaaaand TA-DA! After.
Disclaimer: Not pictured the bathroom specific cleaning supplies (I’m looking for an over the door basket to contain them for easy retrievability). Also not picture, the counter top. I need a tray or something for makeup and the husbands shaving accompaniment thingies. Anyway, it’s a start! Up next…the pantry. Dun dun DUUUN!
Well, that’s it for today, off to go pack everybody up, we’re headed to Indiana tomorrow! TTFN!
