Confession of an Organizer: Baskets

Confession of an Organizer:

Baskets aren’t an addiction.baskets

There are no support groups. As long as there are no support groups, I’m going to stick with it’s not an addiction.

Of course, by this logic my Amazon shopping habits aren’t a problem either…..

Organize the Little Things with an Over the Door Organizer!

Organize the Little Things with an Over the Door Organizer!

Oh the little things…little things

Batteries, pencils, twist ties, rubber bands, legos, toiletries, tea candles, you know, the little things. Stuff you really do need but they’re just begging to be organized. You already know I’m not going to tell you to throw them in a drawer and forget out it.

Nope. Not this girl.

I’m going to give you great tips for ways to make those little things look beautiful and be right at your finger tips when you need them!

Let’s start in the hear of the home!

The kitchen.

little things An over the door organizer doesn’t have to hang over a door. What?! Right!

Use hardware or my personal favorite 3m hooks, to hang on a wall.

Inside a pantry, just outside the kitchen door in the garage, you name it. Put those handy wipe, cleaners, fresh rags or sponges there. Baking soda, vinegar, cleaners, brushes, and other cleaning tools. In fact this would work just as well in the Laundry room as the Kitchen.

Consider putting water bottles, ziploc boxes, foil, seasoning packets, snacks, the ideas are limited only to what you have to stuff it with! Ah…. all those little things – tidy. Be still my heart.

 

The Bathroom.

little things

Confession time – this is my actual stuff, in my actual bathroom. I rent so no looking at the tile. Can you see how handy this is in a small space? Puts everything where I can see it easily and bonus because I can easily see it, I can easily put it back! Pretty sweet deal if you ask me.

These over the door organizers are work horses! You could put bathing suits, unders, diapers, pull ups, wash clothes, shampoo, conditioners, brushes, hair do pretty thingys.

 

The Bedroom.

Scarves, socks, belts, tshirts….. the pins on Pinterest telling you what to put in one of these for your closet is endless. Don’t forget toys… dog toys. What? your dogs don’t use your closet?

The Office. little things

This might be my favorite. No junk drawers here! Just beautifully sorted office supplies. They make me happy. Just looking over at them makes me smile. Rubber bands, binder clips, power cords, batteries, post it notes, markers, sharpies, scissors….. don’t they look beautiful?

Kids Room.

Don’t skip this is you don’t have kids. You probably have a fur baby – which is really a kid, come on. Toys, stuffies, legos, small books, small shoes, small clothes, and so many tiny things. Get more than one.

Also this is a great idea for kids rooms: Toy Library

Seasonal.

Ornaments! or cold weather gear. Perfect for gloves and hats, scarves, wool socks….. this thing can go in your car too!

So, isn’t your head just swimming with good ideas? Go forth, get an over the door organizer! Be organized!

You’re welcome.

Life Changing Magic of Conquering Your Junk Drawer!

The Life Changing Magic of Conquering Your Junk Drawer!!!

While I think it’s magical to toss junk to the curb, there are plenty of items that are quite necessary in today’s world we must keep.

Twist ties, cable ties, zip ties, paperclips,husbands, that penny that you picked up that special time with so and so.

You get the idea.

JUNK

You of course have it under control. You’re a brilliant human being who understands everything has a place and you know where it is. Your problem is that you live with other human beings who expect you to find that place for every single little item to walk the face of the earth.

Sadly we can’t just hug these items, thank them, and toss them in the trash. So we do the next best thing we put them in the drawer of delayed decisions. Also known as…. (sad trumpet sound – wa wa wa)…. the junk drawer. The drawer with batteries and that last stick of gum.

The drawer you have to jiggle to get closed. 

Yeah, let’s do something about it.

I promise you’ll feel super human or at very least productive. I’d make us all t-shirts, “I cleaned my junk drawer and it changed my life” but I’m not sure it will catch on.

No matter, you’ve got this.

Overwhelmed NO MORE!

To start, watch the video linked below.

Gather up your choice of supplies. Either the over the door organizer, the cereal boxes or ice cube trays. Then toss your junk on the counter and go!

The over the door organizer can easily be hidden in a pantry or attached garage if your junk drawer is located in the kitchen. Hang it with nails or 3m hooks instead of the provided over the door hangers to get it to lay flat right where you want it.

Use the ice cube trays in the drawer or just as a handy dandy tray for a project. You’ll look like a genius doing it. Smile and feel magical, accepting compliments. You’ve got this!

Look back on what you’ve accomplished and realize that not once did you need to thank your batteries for the service they provide.
