If you saw my house right this second you would say: "Ew" and "Why would I ever listen to anything you have to say about organization?" and "Why are you blogging when your house looks like that???"
Let's define some terms though...
clean - adj. the absence of a gross film on surfaces. In a sentence: My house isn't clean.
messy - adj. the presence of clutter that can be put away. In a sentence: My house is messy.
organized - adj. the ability to find what you need when you need it. In a sentence: I am organized.My Dad always says, "Everything has a place, everything in its place."
So, at my house, I have a place for everything... and that says a lot since I coupon and gather things in quantity regularly.
But I have a couple complications: 1) I strongly dislike my house looking like the kids have taken over and 2) my space is very limited. Therefore, I have to be creative about where things are stored.
I put extra diapers and wipes under the steps.
I pull out my bathroom cabinet drawers and store things in the gap behind the drawer.
Underbed storage is fair game.
|Yes, we added "spacers" so that this drawer would fit under our bed. The drawers are on casters and they were free. Whatever works!|
This might be my first "series". Stay tuned for more.
