Yep, I got the organizational bug again. It comes in spurts. Last time it was my bedroom (which has been taken over a little again…next week’s project). This time around, I was tired of wading through a complete mess every time I had to go into the closet under the stairs for the vacuum or a stack of plates for our board gaming potlucks.
My Storage Closet
My husband offered to help me by making whatever storage system I desired. He measured out the closet for me, and we tracked down 4 shelves that would end up fitting perfectly. Two of them on top of each other and bracketed together formed the shelves at the back. The other two are side by side to the left of the open door. There is less than an inch to spare on any side of where all the shelves are set up.
Hubby Done Awesome!!!
With his shelves installed and a couple of hours of work reorganizing everything, here is how it looks now. Fully functional and amazing.
Other than the 6 hours of our time spent on measuring, putting together shelves, and reorganizing, it also cost about $100. The tall shelves were $30 each and the short, but wider shelves were $20 each. All of them were from freaking Walmart…yeah, but at least the big ones were delivered for free to our front door…
My potluck and party stuff is on the left, the kitchen appliances and cleaning stuff is on the back wall, sports stuff is in the back on the top and to the front left, and my Christmas decorations are still in the cubby hole area on the right. I recovered an entire shelf of my much smaller kitchen pantry, and my vacuum just rolls right in and out with no issues!
Seeing how easy it finally is to grab what I need, I am supremely happy with this $100 investment.
Do you get organizational streaks once in a while? Or are you one of those enviable people that keep it up continuously?
