My friend and past contributor, Angie from what use to be her blog Echoes of Laughter, first shared this post with us on my blog about 5 years ago. It continues to be one of my top viewed posts for good reason. It’s all about making the most of small spaces with an over the door rack. This amazing organizer packs a huge punch in an otherwise underutilized space behind a closet door. Or you can put it on the front, I won’t judge :). It’s perfect for small spaces like pantries and bathrooms. Or even the back of a linen closet door as Angie did here. Keep reading to see how awesome this organizer is!
Even though Angie no longer blogs, I’m glad I can continue to share her posts here. Here’s what she had to say:
Today I want to share a recent discovery in my world of organizing. You see, with Target Stores recently opening in Canada (and now sadly closed down, bummer!), 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.
Making the Most of Small Spaces
Recently, while browsing the aisles at Target (also available HERE via my Amazon affiliate link on sale for $29.00!), 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. It also comes with all of the hardware needed for installation! All of my closets 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.
I’m using it to hold bathroom overstock items that I purchase whenever they go on sale. It’s everything needed to keep a family clean and smelling good. I use to have to store it all 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 small spaces that would have otherwise 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?
