Keep It Organized




Hello Friends!


How's the organizing going???


Oh, if only spaces would stay neat and tidy. You know the Bissell's tag line...


Life's messy, clean it up!

No matter how organized I am, and how everything has it's own place,
things get messy and need re-organizing

Since January is the traditional time to organize, I'm on a mission to clean and organize every space in the house.
Ha! We'll see how that goes.
The Master Bath seemed like a good place to start.
Under the sinks were first, then I opened the linen closet.
Things didn't look tooooooo bad.
But the baskets were hiding the mess.

The first  to begin is clearing off one shelf at a time, taking everything out.  I wiped down each shelf
then put everything back. Each baseket and container was cleared out, wiped down, sorted and put back. Between the trash and the pile for the Goodwill, I filled a whole trash bag.

Don't let the lack of a big chunk of time get in the way of keeping things neat.
If you only have 15- 30 minutes, clean out a shelf at a time. Do the easy shelves first - it will motivate you because you've accomplished something and you'll keep going.

I had a big chunk of time, so I organized the linen closet in one day. (I took breaks in between)

I can't stress enough to use baskets and containers to coral your stuff- Big baskets, medium basket, small baskets - I use them all.

So what space of yours is begging to be organized?

Kitchen? Closets? Bathrooms? Garage? Crawl Space?

Yep, all of the above for me. 

Thanks or stopping by.

  2. I have to constantly organize our linen closet! I love your tips and those baskets are so darn cute. I have 2 large baskets that hold soap, lotions, first aid, etc. The rest of my shelves are devoted to towels, sheets, shower curtains ( must have at least twelve--I just love switching up my bathroom every few months!), and bathroom rugs. It is packed. Sadly, these things don't fit in baskets. I just try to keep everything neat, and definitely rotate all your linens so they stay fresh.

    Oops, I spent more time about ME...just know you gave me a lot of inspiration to keep my closet neat. :)

    1. I keep extra rugs in our hall linen closet and you're right , they're too big for a basket.
      I just fold them neatly and set them on a lower shelf. I keep baskets on the middle shelves where your eyes look when you open the door!
