I am all about simple solutions.
If a project involves more than 10 minutes and a few tools, count me out.
Recently, I came up with two simple solutions that helped make life a little easier.
First up, shoe storage.......
I would not call myself a "shoe person" by any means, but a girl has got to have options.
My OPTIONS were starting to crowd the shoe closet.
It was time to get inventive.
This time an old curtain rod came to the rescue.
This new storage method makes it easy to keep all my summer shoes on display.
I generally switch out my shoes seasonally.
I store the off season shoes in the top of my closet, with the exception of the boots.
In hindsight, I should have had them build the shelves a little closer together.
My other simple solution involves my need for clear countertops.
Nothing puts me over the edge faster than having clutter all over the counter tops.
Yes, I'm aware, I have issues.
My kids love to get a cup out of the cabinet, fill it with water, take a sip, sit it down and forget about it.
When they get thirsty again, they get another clean cup out, fill it with water, take a sip, sit it down and forget about it. This cycle would continue all day long.
Finally, I outsmarted them. I got out my trusty chalkboard tray, assigned them each a spot and gave them strict instructions to put their cup in their spot after each use.
It sits on the countertop, out of the way, and has saved my sanity this summer.
I exaggerate a bit!
There you have it, my two simple solutions.
Do you have any you'd like to share?
