To Be Organized...


I love organization. The Container Store is one of my favorite stores. I could spend hours {and dollars} in there browsing everything they have that could make your life more organized. Living in a condo with a single closet has us figuring out different storage solutions, like our locker. In our laundry room we have a stackable washer/dryer and found a wire hanging shelf by Closet Maid at Lowes that secure to the side {it can be used for any washer/dryer}, providing us storage for detergents, light bulbs, and much more. We utilize Space Bags for additional space on the top shelf in the closet and under the bed. Do you have any storage secrets? Share them!

Not as much a storage idea as a declutering idea. Every spring....call it spring cleaning I guess...Richie and I clean out our closets, the garage and the attic. If we have not used it in a year it goes to charity. Every year certian items that were sentimental before become easier to part with. We usually have a LARGE donation and a lot of trash. It is amazing what you can accumulate. That being said...the more you get rid of the less you have to store. I also love Closet Tailors. A friend of mine owns one and redid Lorelei's closet for me.

Hi,

The photo with the brown dog looking awkward, what colour is that on the wall?

I love that colour.

unfortunately, I need more organization advice than I can offer! I try, but things get out of hand!

I love storage bins/baskets/etc. I love to organize things. And love the container store. Although I try to stay out of there because I would want to spend too much $$$.

Nice, inspirational photos :) Makes me feel a little guilty about my closet situation, though.

I love to have everything organized too. My husband knows not to put away the groceries or anything we buy because I have a system to make everything fit nice and neat. I love the first photo you posted, what a neat color on the storage unit.

Love the first picture- I've been looking for wire baskets like that everywhere with no luck- maybe someday I'll have them.

The best organising advice I have is...make it easy! I am a lazy person who loves having a tidy house. The only way I will put things away is if its easy to do, ie a hook for the ironing board, a basket for my handbag etc.
