The beginning of the new year is the perfect time to get a fresh start on cleaning and organizing your home. As many of us know, after rounding out 2019 with all of the back to back holidays, your house can start to feel as though it has taken on more clutter than ever before. But the question is, how do you properly manage and store your belongings without having to do a complete purge? Is there a way to implement effective storage solutions without breaking the bank? Thanks to useful storage hacks, making room for your supplies doesn’t have to be as daunting as it sounds and you can finally reclaim your living spaces from all of the clutter.
Every weekend when you take that long-awaited trip to the grocery store, you come back with all the essential supplies you need for the week and those big, huge packs of paper towels and toilet paper. Obviously, those are two incredibly important items in any household but where in the world are you supposed to store those massive packages? The easiest solution you can try only requires a hanging shoe shelf organizer. They typically cost around $10 and are easy to set up in any closet. They are perfect for storing rolls of toilet paper or paper towels and keeping them organized and out of the way.
For a more hands-on hack to store specifically paper towels, you can install four hooks and two bungee cords against the wall. Place two hooks at the bottom of the wall and the other two up high enough so that the bungee cords will have some tension when they are stretched. Hook the bungee cord to the hook so they are both vertically positioned. Then, just start stacking your paper towel rolls horizontally up the extent of the bungee cord. Allow the bungee cord’s tension to hold the paper towels in place and then, forget about it. This hack is perfect for the inside of a pantry or cleaning closet to keep paper towels stored neatly and out of the way.
But since it keeps on getting brought up in our conversations (and I even caught him looking at tents for sale the other day), I decided that, since there are hacks for all kinds of things these days, there’s got to be some hacks for camping with kiddos. Right?
I mean, have you thought about going camping with your kids? Maybe you have taken your kids on a camping trip and it was awful. No matter if you have never been camping with your kids or have taken them out several times, the following hacks will provide you (and me!) with ways to take your camping trip with kids to the next level. When you use these hacks everyone is sure to have a good time and you will create lasting memories with your wonderful family.
When it comes to camping with kids, being organized is going to go a long way. One of the best things that you can do is to purchase some clear tubs to pack all of your supplies in. Clear tubs allow you to see what is inside, which makes it easier to find what you need when you need it.
Well, I may be a bit behind the band wagon on this one, but let’s talk about spring cleaning! Have y’all started on yours yet?! I’m just getting going on this end!
The thing about spring cleaning is, it’s easy to run out of your supplies pretty quickly once you get in the groove. So when Stewart from The Rug Seller contacted me about some spring cleaning hacks…oh yes! Bring it on!
I have a love/hate relationship with August. The reason for that is, here in Florida, it is probably the hottest month out of the year. But every once in a while, toward the end of August, you get a day that just might feel a tad bit like Fall! So, I’ll be bearing with the heat, in hopes that one morning, I might walk outside and find that Fall has almost arrived!
But until then…let’s take a look at the top 5 posts here on the blog in the month of JULY!
