With the Christmas decor down and basic clean up done, it is time to do a little purging, cleaning and organizing some of the storage areas. These are repeats of previous posts, but so worth taking another look at.
I think I am blessed to have cupboards above the washer and dryer, but boy can I mess them up. The two doors above the washer hold all my laundry supplies and that is what seems to get out of control really fast.
This is just part of what I had stuffed in them. Amazing that you can accumulate so much stuff. You know how you buy something new to try and then it just takes up space because you really didn't like it. Time to throw it out.
I narrowed it down to exactly what I use and now I can see it and find it.
We have a small double vanity in our master bathroom with double doors under each sink and three small drawers. I needed to make that space behind the doors function. It was just a big empty space, no drawers, shelves or anything.
These simple inexpensive plastic storage bins from Walmart and Target work great for my hubby's side. He can keep his grooming essentials neatly at hand.
My side got a little more complicated. Tall bottles of hairspray, lotions, potions and all kinds of hair stuff and makeup is a challenge.
These two stacking drawers are perfect for makeup and facial cleaning products if they are cleaned and organized.
Then I finally found something that worked for all those odd ball tall bottles that you need to be able to get to. This double metal rack I found at Ross solves the mess you saw above.
This is a whole post on it's own, but so worth checking out. I love to see what all I have, then I can replace what's needed and find anything I want when I am cooking. Even a small pantry can hold everything you need and be easy to use.
I love a clean and pretty kitchen, so this post is one where I share some of my deep cleaning tips and create a few new vignettes as I am doing it.
Here is my really simple solution.
Hope you found a few helpful tips. I love clean without a ton of work.
