We use the old boiler cupboard as a laundry cupboard (or general dumping space). This was the before.... now do you see why I've been putting it off for so long....!
First step was to take everything out and have a good sort. I found plenty of towels/sheets that we hadn't used for ages, so found them a new home via Freecycle
Next I tried to find ways of keeping everything neat and tidy. I took inspiration from Simi's Cupboard Organisation and used little plastic baskets as handy storage for face cloths....
Facecloth Toothbrush Wrap!
I even managed to squeeze in my steamer and find a spot on the wall to hang dusters/broom.
This cupboard is never going to be super pretty (like the ones I see on Pinterest!), but it is 100% better than it was. I can now actually find what I'm looking for and I'm glad to say that it has stayed this way for at least 2 weeks... fingers crossed I can keep it that way!
What types of storage solutions do you use for your cupboards?!
Are you taking bets for how long before its back to normal? lolReplyDelete
Haha don't think you'd get very good odds for that!! xDelete
OK you can come and do mine now! It's amazing how much you can get into a small space.ReplyDelete
I've got plenty of other cupboards to do first!! You can certainly get more in a small space when it's tidier ;) xDelete
It looks fabulous, my cupboards never look anything like that.ReplyDelete
It's very rare that my cupboards look like that either ;) xDelete
It looks great, and I bet it was a very satisfying feeling to cross it off your list! My favourite bit of organising is to keep the bedding in sets all stored in one of the pillowcases so I only have to look for one thing not a whole heap each time!ReplyDelete
It definitely was very satisfying to finish it! Love that tip for storing bedding in a matching pillowcase.... will have to try that when I next sort out the cupboard :) xDelete
Looks great now if you could just pop over and organise my cupboards that would be great :D AnitaReplyDelete
Thanks Anita! It took me long enough to get on with my own cupboard... so might not be organising yours for a while!! xDelete
