This closet is in our living room and serves as a repository for everything---coats and beyond. It truly became a dumping ground more recently as Soren began crawling and we'd stash anything we didn't want him to get into in that closet. Which is why I'll assume there was a box of matches in there.
Here are some of the things that were hiding in there, some necessary, some not:
- one shoe
- diaper bag
- laptop bag
- space heater
- vacuum cleaner
- many blankets (for cozy-ing up on the couch)
- baby toys
- our fireproof safe (easy access to put mail, etc.)
- Baby Bjorn
- Hats, gloves, scarves (all over the place)
- Knitting basket
- baby sling
I had an extra shoe pocket-organizer up in the attic that I thought would be useful on the door for hats and gloves. I need to screw it onto the door, since the hooks that go over the door don't let it close so easily.And lastly, I brought in the shoe rack from our back porch mudroom/laundry room. It's hard to deal with putting on and taking off shoes in colder weather in that porch, since it's not too insulated. Boots are another story: they'll remain in the mudroom.The final result: an organized closet!For more Tackle it Tuesday, visit 5 Minutes for Mom.
