Now that we've been here for 9 months I've started to focus on trying to get organized. Yeah, yeah I should have started in the kitchen because I've accumulated three, not one, but THREE junk drawers. However I've started with baby steps. I stopped at The Dollar Tree and picked up some little plastic containers (for the record I did call for a price check....they were a dollar) for the kids' bathroom.
I hope ya'll see the awesomeness in this but of course my hubby didn't think it was as spectacular as I did!
Here was Jake's vanity before.
So, I put all of the items that Jake uses daily into a basket that he can pull in and out each day when he needs to use them.
Here is Emma's vanity before. She had a lot more girl stuff on her side and, luckily for her, no toilet brushes or cleaners next to her toothbrush.
I love her 31 bag but it just didn't hold enough stuff and just doesn't have enough structure. Sooooo I busted out a purple basket for Emma.
Now they can pull their basket out in the morning, do their thing, and then slide the basket in the vanity nice and neatly when they are done (so I don't have to holler at them to pick up their stuff). Well at least that's the hope that I have :-)
Now I can easily Mr. Clean or Pine Sol their vanities every week when I clean the bathrooms. Instead of pulling piles of stuff out to clean, I pull out each basket clean, slide them back in and DONE!
So, for two bucks I'm pretty happy. I sure hope nobody else looked under these vanities before I got them organized. If you did....I apologize ;)
