We’ve been taking some simple steps toward getting a bit more organized this month! As part of the pantry challenge, we wanted to get the pantry and freezer(s) better organized. Plus we have one little corner in the hallway that needed some serious help! After a trip to Lowe’s with just under $100 spent, we came up with some simple solutions!
First up, the “shoe corner”. When we decided on this house just under 2 years ago, we sacrificed some storage for location. Our laundry room (right inside from the garage) is very small–just enough space for the washer & dryer. I would LOVE a large laundry or mud room to put shoes, hang bags, etc. But in our house it just isn’t happening. And, we typically don’t wear shoes inside the house. No one really likes wearing them. Plus, I think it keeps the house cleaner to not be tracking dirty shoe bottoms all over the carpet! So, the routine has been that everyone in our family just kicks off their shoes right after coming inside. We have a tile hallway that leads from the garage & laundry room, then into the kitchen and family room. This little corner has become the shoe kickoff spot and it looked terrible!!
I didn’t want to completely change the routine (i.e. decide that shoes could no longer go there), but we needed something more organized. After browsing around Lowe’s, we found some great ClosetMaid options perfect for the corner there. After a little assembly, we now have a MUCH improved corner! See?! Now, we each have a bin for those shoes that we kick on & off throughout the day (like flip flops, slippers, etc). And, a place for Big Brother’s school papers and the diaper bag. A super simple solution that looks SO much nicer!!!
While we were at Lowe’s, we also snagged an over-the-door shoe organizer that is going to serve another purpose in the office & wire rack perfect for the pantry door…Stay tuned for the pantry organization post coming soon! In the meantime, you can visit Lowe’s Creative Ideas for all kinds of home improvement & DIY project ideas!
