January is the typical month to get organized, so I guess I'm a little slow - but you all know that I've been busy with my house projects in the passed 12 months! Now that that they are pretty much finished, I've been working on organizing and clearing out my storage spaces.
Last week I showed you my Master Closet ....
and some of my kitchen cabinets ...
But, here is my worst, ok, one of the worst closets in my house ...the Master Bath Linen Closet.
Here's what it looked like before ...
Yes, I know ... it has those AWFUL wire shelves, but we aren't about to install better shelving now that the house is up for sale.
Only the two lower shelves are actually used for linens. One shelf is for towels and one shelf is for sheets. I keep blankets in the armoire in my room. I use the rest of the shelves for first aid items, pain relievers, lotions, perfume, soap, Q tips toothpaste, curler sets, etc. I also put my big magnifying mirror in there and that's where I put my eye makeup on.
I would love to know where all of you store all of that stuff, other than the linens. I have always stored them in my linen closet. Under my sinks I keep hair products, & cleaning stuff. Or maybe you just don't have as much
junk stuff as I do. This closet has been bugging me for about a month. Do your messes talk to you like mine do? Every time I'd open that door (which is several times a day) I would hear "gotta clean up this mess" Yesterday I finally got tired of hearing that & cleaned it up! : )
Here's the after ...
Yay! Looks and functions so much better!!!
This weekend we have been working on a lot of miscellaneous tidying projects. Yesterday we worked on cleaning up the yard. I don't know about your yard, but ours has taken a beating with the early extreme heat we've had! It sure doesn't look like this anymore:
Next week we are going to be adding some new mulch to spruce things up a bit. New mulch always makes the yard look better ... now what can we do about the big brown patches in the grass so that the grass can look like the above photo again???
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Wishing you a wonderful week!
