You may or may not be like me, but with work, family and life, it can be hard to get things organized (especially after you have made the mess in question). I figured it was time to organize one of the shelves in my closet. To be honest, I only thought about organizing it because I started couponing and I am gaining a bit of a stash, so of course when I brought the items home, I threw them onto the shelf (hey, I was in a hurry, what can I say?). So in honor of my stash, I think that it’s time to organize the shelf in 4 easy steps!
- Stand and stare aimlessly at the mess on the shelf (you know, to get a mental picture, of course).
- Throw everything that doesn’t belong onto the floor and ask the kids to put everything into a trash bag for you. It’s a learning experience right?
- After purchasing your choice of small baskets (from your local dollar store), place like items into each basket. In my case, I have lip balms, razors, tweezers and tooth paste / brushes.
- Place filled baskets onto the shelf and just like that…. organized shelf! Quick and Easy!!!
Of course, there are so many ways to organize any shelf or closet, but this works for me when I am in a rush (or would rather watch tv or spend time with my family). Not bad for a quick Saturday activity.
Until Next Time!
