Happy Wednesday – you have made it to midweek – the weekend is almost here. I’m glad to be back at My Color-Coded Life after a minor and successful surgery. I’m back on the mend and feeling good. The back -to – school time is in full swing as kids are entering their third and fourth weeks back. Fall is the universal “get organized, get systems in place” time of year. That’s very true in my household right now!
Do you ever have a situation where you have a big organization project to do and you just don’t have time to tackle it all? So it will sit there – all piled up, in an awful mess? Today’s Helpful Hump-day Hint is a half-step solution to this problem!
Don’t have time to do a full-room top to bottom organizational overhaul (even if the room needs it?)
HHH#1 - Use over the door shoe organizer to hold objects that are not shoes and begin to organize a space.
I have not had time to fully unpack and set up my crafting area in my new house. And it has been driving me crazy! I would say – I can’t set that up yet because… enter a million excuses here … I want a different craft table, I want to redo the dresser that is going to house all my craft supplies, we need to paint the room (after removing the wallpaper)…the list of excuses could go on and on. So as a “quick fix,” I got an over-the-door shoe organizer and put in as many craft supplies as I could. This unpacked several boxes, cleared drawer space for paper supplies, and cleared two surfaces so now I can actually do some work!
Here it is:
(check out the crazy striped wall paper! You will see that come down in a reveal post one day!)
These is an inexpensive one from WalMart. I bought two more for the two hall closets too. I splurged and bought a more expensive one from Bed Bath and Beyond – the Real Simple Multi-pocket organizer for my basement door. Larger pockets and comes with labels. Woo- hoo! I love labels!
How are you getting organized as you get back into your routines?
