Time for a confession. I'm disorganized. Lets face it... my closet is a breeding ground for calamity and chaos. My silverware drawer looks like an explosion of forks and dish towels. My junk drawer... well, we won't go there right now. I've had enough! When you live in a loft apartment that only has two closets, one of which is taken up by the water heater you. have. got. to. be. ORGANIZED!
See, this is what I'm working with in the closet arena. This is the only one aside from our clothes closet. No coat closet. No linen closet. Nothing. And it isn't pretty...
I forgot to take a before picture, but trust me, you wouldn't want to see the before.
Anyway, I've decided to turn over a new leaf. De-clutter. Simplify. Put everything in its place. The first thing I decided to organize was the cleaning supplies (naturally) and the water heater closet. I saw this idea on Pinterest. It was a quick and easy solution to a complete mess.
I bought a cheap hanging shoe rack, but it on the inside of the door and ta-da! Extra storage space. I put all our cleaning products, rags, dusters, vacuum bags, and anything else associated with keeping the home clean in there. The picture below is before I added everything into the pockets, but it seriously freed up so much space in the closet. It also made much needed room under the kitchen and bathroom sinks.
Baby steps people, baby steps. But, see? Quick AND Easy!
