Organizing around the house

by Andrea Cooley

After three days of organizing posts is everything hung up, all the laundry folded, all the magazines sorted and everything in order? Or do you have a bigger mess than you started with? That's actually a good sign. I always say it has to get worse before it can get better! 

Today we have more of our best ways to organized. So if you haven't started cleaning out your closets, you're in luck! Here are 4 more ways to jump start the process:

yarn basket1. Baskets

Everything looks better in a basket! Here's a woven felt basket I found at Target awhile back that is full of yarn. I wish I could say this was my whole stash, but there's another bin in a closet. I have baskets for Emerson's toys, baskets for books, baskets for magazines, and a basket for towels in our bathroom (we don't have a linen closet). Like I said, baskets make everything OK.

closet door storage2. Over the door storage
My favorite place to score additional storage is on the backs of doors. I hung a shoe organizer on the back of the closet door in the nursery and filled it with extra blankets, burp cloths, sheets, and towels. I can see everything and don't have to dig in the dresser for them.

shelves3. Cupboard storage
Storage was limited in Laura's old apartment so she had to get creative to make the most of their limited cabinet space. She used wire shelves for stacking dishes and lined the shelves with pretty paper–so smart!
vintage suitcases4. Vintage suitcases
I'll be honest. I'm kind of jealous of Laura and Cody's collection of vintage suitcases! They look great and are perfect for storage. They use them for everything from DVDs and games to fish supplies, and baby things! 

What's your favorite storage trick?
