Making the Most of Small Spaces
The following is a guest post from regular contributor, Angie at Echoes of Laughter.
Hello Org Junkie readers! I hope you are well! We still have about 3 weeks before our kids return to school where I live, but I see around blogland that in other areas, school has started already for some. Can it really be that time again already?
Today I want to share a recent discovery in my world of organizing. You see, with Target Stores recently opening in Canada, I have had a whole new assortment of organizing products to look at and drool over and I have been a bit like a puppy with a shoe…happy, happy, happy! I never tire of looking at organizational toys! You see, we live in a small 2-storey home…about 1700 square feet and I am always on the lookout for things to help me get the most out of my small spaces.
Recently, while browsing the aisles at Target, I spotted an over-the-door organizing product that I absolutely love! It’s only 45 cm wide and comes with 8 adjustable wire shelves with all of the hardware needed for installation included! All of my closets at home are organized, but absolutely jam-packed full of stuff, so my mind started racing as to how this tool would help to make the most out of small spaces that aren’t being utilized fully. I decided that this fun toy just had to come home with me!
It was so easy to install with just a drill and 15 minutes..certainly my kind of project! I decided to install one of these amazing things on every closet door in my home….including my kitchen pantry, linen closet and utility closet. Here is the organizer I installed on the linen closet door on the 2nd floor of our home where 2 bathrooms are located. This is everything needed to keep a family clean and smelling good…all bought on sale, but formerly stored in the basement because the 2nd floor just had no room! Can we just stand back and admire how we no longer have to run down 2 sets of steps to retrieve a new tube of toothpaste when we discover the tube we are using is fully squished out?
This is one smart solution to making the most of a small space that would have other wise been a missed opportunity! I love when I stumble on things that make perfect sense for organizing and maintaining order in my small home!
How about you? Have you stumbled across any small space organizing solutions that have made perfect sense for your home?
