One of the things I need most in my life is better organization skills. One thing that was just driving me nuts was that I was constantly losing things because they didn’t have a “spot”. Cleaning supplies were the worst. Some were shoved under the bathroom sinks, some in the kitchen, and more in the garage. And I always had unnecessary multiples of many things because I didn’t know if I had them at home when I was shopping.
Then I found www.iHeartOrganizing.blogspot.com
Her blog is every unorganized woman’s answer to organizing. If you haven’t checked out her blog, please do! Anyway, here’s what I found on her website.
It’s brilliant, right? But, I didn’t like that I couldn’t see the products easily – in this version, you have to tag all the pockets.
Then, I found this at Walmart for about $5.
Perfection!! And up it went. And all the cabinet spaces in the house were cleaned out, the duplicates were “married” and only things that truly needed to be in those spaces stayed in those rooms. For example, toilet cleaners in the bathrooms, dish soap in the kitchen, etc. The rest went here, on the back door of my laundry room.
Now, I can see everything at a glance, know when supplies are getting low and, BONUS, if I’m at the store and forget if I have enough of something, I can call my husband or the kids at home to check on it – and even they can find it easily!
So easy, and yet so satisfying!
