|my scraps gets organized|
my scraps is kicking off a summer series on getting organized.
each Tuesday, there will be a post related to being organized, getting organized, tools and techniques for getting organized, etc.
please feel free to leave a comment if you have an idea or specific area you'd like to see covered.
we are going to start off small and simple. . .water bottles.
my family had a big weekend this past weekend - we attended the Monster Jam Monster Truck Rally and the Philadelphia ProCycling Race. The kids brought home 7 water bottles.
|new water bottles (+1 Ryan brought to school today)|
add these to collection of bottles we already had teetering out of control in our cabinet. . .and we needed help.
|water bottles i pulled out of cabinet|
a quick request on Twitter - brought a great idea from Molly Gold of My GO MOM Inc. (Molly is my go-to source for organizing, growing and scheduling)
Molly suggested a plastic bin, down low where the kids could reach it and purge some of the bottles. I had already thought about a plastic bin I was using on top of the fridge for something else. I knew I had to purge. . .but the idea to put it low tied it all up nicely for me.
|the right storage solution AND the right spot to store|
so first i cleaned the basket (never put anything away dirty) then I purged some bottles. I kept just enough to fill the basket. a few cabinet changes, and I was able to slide the basket in a low cabinet.
|organized water bottles|
the remainder of the water bottles went in the recycling basket. so for a few minutes of brainstorming, a few minutes of labor and using a basket from my stash - water bottles are not falling out of my cabinet onto my head.
what's one area in your house you can organize right now to make you r life just a little easier?
leave me a comment and let me know how it goes.
catch you soon -
