    For some reason I find it better to fall clean rather than spring clean. :) I have no idea why but I love going into the winter with everything neat and tidy. Here are a couple pictures of our 'under the stairs' closet. I didn't get a before picture but the first picture is half way through the...
  2. Secondhand Shopping
    ~Well, I finally checked it out. Color me unimpressed. The potential is definitely there. The store was clean and well organized. The selection was amazing. The staff was friendly and helpful. But the products were sub-par. I know this stuff is used but I've been buying used all my life. I...
  3. Secondhand Shopping
    Thought I would let everyone know about a GREAT secondhand store. Plato's Closet buys and sells second hand clothing for teens/ twenty somethings. They have guys and girls clothing, shoes, bags, jewelry, etc in ALL sizes. They'll probably have clothes your kids will like for prices you will like...

    13 Reasons to Clean Your Closet Today I find most of these fairly obvious, but we can all use a reminder every now and then! :)
  5. Stockpiling
    I found some heavy duty utility shelves in not-very-good shape. I wedged them into a closet in my family room that I suspect was once a dumbwaiter. This is where I keep my stockpiled canned goods and dried goods. Before we put the shelves in, things were just shoved in randomly. Now I'm...
  6. Christmas
    ok, I don't have a gift closet but isn't that what it's called?? What do you do with the stuff you pick up through the year for gifts? How do you keep track of it. This is the first year I am doing it. I currently have two fabric bins in my laundry room ( up high out of reach) with stuff...

    ~Has anyone heard of this idea? It occurred to me as I yet again grudgingly put away several baskets of clean laundry. Don't mind washing, drying or folding but I hate putting away. With dishes you get a similar thing, they always need to be washed and put away but that doesn't really bother me...

    I have a subscription the Canadian House and Home, and this month's issue had the most adorable idea for a front closet (the closet by the door, not sure if that's what everyone calls them). I looked through their website but couldn't find any pictures online so will have to just describe it...

    Hopefully, all clothng you get for Christmas will fit, be cute, be just the right color, and you like it. But I can testify of some clothing disasters. So.... just for fun... What's the ugliest thing in your closet?
  11. Home Environment
    I had an idea the other day when I was taking the closet rod out of my son's closet (the one we are turning into an office nook). We have his & her closets in the master bedroom, so we will both have our own. I am going to move the existing rod up a little higher in my husband's closet, then...

    What are some good ideas for keeping things tidy and attractive in a bedroom without a closet? This is a teenage girl's room, so there is lots of clothing and other random stuff. Does anyone have frugal storage ideas - preferably ones that don't involve buying new furniture?

    Someone mentioned in another thread about a friend turning a closet into an office. I've been thinking about it ever since, and looking through pictures on the internet. Has anyone here ever done this, or have any ideas for me? One of the bedrooms in the house we are buying is really tiny...

  15. Home and family challenges
    OK, so my house isn't too messy these days. That's because I stuff everything in my closets :eek: !! My mini challenge for the week (and yours too if you care to join me) is to clean one closet per day. I am a teacher and so have the week off and no excuses for not being able to do this (note...

    I need some help and ideas. For some crazy reason, I decided to clean the closet today in our bedroom. It's not a walk-in, but is a little extra deep and 18 feet long. We have an extra heavy-duty rod that runs the entire length, and a shelf above that. Hubby has half of the closet and I have...

    Okay, I spent some serious time purging my closet. I tackled the hanging t-shirts, and the long sleeve t-shirts on the shelf. I had more long sleeve t's than I thought. :couch: My sweaters won't yet fit up on the closet shelf where they're suppose to be. :couch: Need to go hang up some of those...

    I spent 1/2 hour purging my closet of excess short sleeve t-shirts (I have a serious fetish with t-shirts...) and went through the side closet shelf of short sleeve t-shirts, and the extra stack of them that began on the top box under the closet shelf. The shelf in the side closet is still as...

    Do you have a favorite way to organize your linen closet? How many extra sheets and blankets do you call enough? Do you use dryer sheets to keep things smelling good? Do you remember to rotate your sheets, or do you use the same ones over and over? I am looking for ideas to make it more...
