I love to organize things. Got a junk drawer somewhere that’s overflowing? Let me at it! I know that many of you can relate to the awesome feeling of accomplishment when you transform messy to tidy. Ahhhhh…..
I have to keep up with organization in this house. If there’s anything out of place in a small home, it sticks out like a sore thumb. My kids (like most) are like little tornadoes – so there are usually lots of sore thumbs sticking out everywhere.
Whatever I use for organization has to be simple. I know how easy it is to throw that coat and backpack on the floor! And I know that if I make it difficult, no one cooperates. I’ve had lots of fails.
That’s why I decided to start writing ‘Easy Organizing’ posts. Whenever I find a way – that works – to keep the chaos under control, I’ll share it with you.
First up is our kids’ bathroom.
You know the scene – kid takes shower, kid uses towel, kid leaves towel in the living room or some other inappropriate-for-a-towel spot in the house. Multiply that by 4. And then – not one kid remembers which towel was theirs. ugh
Here’s my solution that has worked so amazingly perfectly.
Towels in designated colors (Target), and numbered towel hooks (Home Depot).
Not surprisingly, there are very few stray towels any more. But if I find a stray towel around the house, I know immediately who it belongs to. Busted!
And cute !
