My Clean Guest Closet
Since I shop all year round for presents I need a place to keep them. My mother used the deep cupboard above our fridge, but for me my guest room closet seemed a nice reachable destination.
The problem I had though, was whenever I’d get back from a shopping trip I’d dump the bag in there, and after a while it became a closet of plastic bags. Which was fine, if we weren’t having guests or I didn’t need to find anything. But the reality is that we do have guests, and I’m constantly running late to birthday parties!
I’ve dedicated the beginning of this year to getting my house 100% organized. So last week, it was me vs. my guest closet.
First, I spent the morning going through things I wanted to keep or donate. Then I simply divided everything into six boxes: Ladies, Gents, Kiddies, Bows, Bags and Other.
The fun part was placing everything neatly into my favorite boxes from Ikea (see HERE) and labeling the fronts. Basically, that was that.
$30 later, I’m one happy gal and my guest room is ready for anyone at a moments notice:)
