Organize It: Baskets

This is where my cleaning supplies are.  How can it be the messiest place in my home?  Somewhere along the way, I just starting throwing bottles, boxes and containers under my bathroom sink.  Maybe I was tired from scrubbing the shower or wiping down a countertop.  I got lazy putting these things away...and it got out of hand.  The clorox wipes are dangling over the pine sol.  The lysol is about to fall out of the cupboard.  I just put it back and push the door closed before it can fall again.  

I determined that this would be the next thing I clean.  I could have just lined everything up.  Instead, I grabbed a basket and put my supplies in it.  I'm not reaching over the front bottles to get the back...knocking things over, that I don't pick up again.  I love it. It looks far more tidy.  Next time you want to straighten out a cupboard, grab an old basket that has been wasting space...and put it to work.  Organize it!  I am declaring here that I must keep the cupboard where I store cleaning supplies....clean!!


  1. I do use a lot of baskets for storing "stuff",but being of odd sizes, they tend to take up a lot of space.I have tried everything to save space. I have finally come to the conclusion that what I need is "less stuff".
