It is a new year. A new day. I took the opportunity on January 1st 2013 to do a small reorganization project. One that I decided I wanted to do a couple days before the new year but didn't have the time to tackle. See I wanted the big brown shelf out of the bathroom closet for my craft room to organize my fabric onto. I was also quite tired of how my bathroom closet looked. It was time for a change.
I didn't want to put the pump top items in the drawers though because they were too tall to stand in the drawers and I was afraid that having them lying down would cause leakage. So I moved my stuff out of the white baskets on the top shelf and re-purposed them. The bottom one has travel sized bathroom stuff and the top has all the pump top stuff and Sierra's hair spray - it keeps her baby fine hair in her braids.
I also moved the toilet paper up off the floor. I did that for two reasons. One is that the kids are constantly wasting toilet paper by unrolling them about the house - this is mainly Sierra but sometimes Sawyer or Colton as well. The second is that the kids are constantly flooding the floor whether playing in the sink when they shouldn't or splashing too much at bath time. This will keep the toilet paper safe. I did leave one roll of toilet paper in the black metal toilet paper holder to the left of the plastic drawers so that the kids could get it if they run out.
Other than the curtain and rod I plan to install soon I didn't spend a dime to reorganize this closet. I already had the towel baskets on hand, traded out the main piece of furniture for a different one in another space etc. It really feels much cleaner and brighter and more open now that I have taken the time to pare things down and organize it nicely in there.
