Type B does organization.

Our kitchen cabinets have been sealed tighter than the lid on a pickle jar since Harper started scooting around.  All of my cleaning supplies used to be under the sink, but a: there were too many of them so I couldn't see them, b. I didn't like having them in Harper's reach, on the off chance we forgot to engage the cabinet locks jaws of death.

After watching a particularly disturbing episode of Hoarders, I decided it was time to do something about it.

Below, I give you the single best organizational idea I've ever had.  It hangs on the inside of the door that goes up to our attic, so I can shut it and it's completely out of sight and Harper can't open the door and probably won't be able to do so until she's 18. . . because Brandon "disengaged" the handle. ..but that's a story for another day.

It's a shoe organizer that I bought for Brandon's shoes (after watching an equally disturbing episode of Hoarders), but his shoes are too big. So, there. Boom! You've just been stay-at-home mommed.


  1. OMG I love that! I need to do that in my house!

  2. Love it!! Will you come organize the rest of my house? ha ha

  3. hmm... i can see the "dis-engaged" handle... looks like what i commonly call a "lee project" :)

  4. hahaha! I think all episodes of Hoarders are disturbing! good solution for the cleaning products. I think it's also great if you have pets b/c I keep mine under the sink and always worry that Birkin might stick her nose in there b/c I've left it open by mistake. Plus it's great that you can keep these products separated from each other, so even more of a safety plus!

  5. That's a really great idea. I will have to keep that in mind.
