Woo-hoo! It's time for my conquered closet series. Starting next week, lot of fabulous bloggers will be dropping in to share their sucesses and solutions to a whole host of storage problems.
Since I asked them to bare all, it was only fair I show you mine.
Exhibit A. My dirty little secret - this messy, disorganized, so bad I buy the same things three times before I realize I have plenty, pantry closet.
It was bad. I've cleaned this out a bunch of times but always ended up with the same disarray in a few short weeks. Something had to be done..
So instead of just stacking everything neatly in there, I devised a bucket method. Like items would go in these plastic bins (found at ikea). Staples got a beautification with matching containers (since I'd be more likely to keep it neat that way). When I need something, I would know where to find it.
So much better! And because I'm fancy like that, I added some sleek labels to the bins and the jars.
I did this more than a month ago (I wanted to test it out before I shared) and it has totally made a huge difference. The pantry is still looking pretty and it has been zero effort to keep up. Yea. Now if I could only do this to my clothes closet.
Stay tuned to tomorrows post for a sneak peek of the storage goodies coming your way next week.
