Climbing the Walls

shoe storage

I left you hanging in my master closet renovation project post and for that I’m sorry. But I knew you’d be so impressed with this shoe storage solution that all would be forgiven.

Okay, so once the clothes were up there was about a foot and a half of wasted space in the back corner of the closet. Originally, my shoes were on one of those over-the-door wire jobs that never seemed to let the door fully close. I wanted to make use of that corner space but Pinterest failed me creatively. Frustrated, I started roaming around the house for inspiration. Read More

Next month will mark our third anniversary in this house. That means that for nearly three years our master closet has looked pretty much like this:

I promise, you will not see me on a future episode of Hoarders (because I do not have a problem and more importantly because it’s not on HGTV).

Seriously, the reason for this nonsense is that a few weeks months ago, I decided to fashion my master closet a la Abercrombie. {someday I’ll finish & post about it} Read More

Put A Lid On It

Plastic Pantry

As I was rummaging around in the pantry muttering about the builder’s stupidity for not installing any lighting in there my son was busy putting away the dishes. Over my own complaining I could sort of hear him whining about having too much Tupperware and not enough cabinet space.

I’m pretty sure he was complaining more about me and the way I insist things be put away just so but since he was smart enough to ‘whisper-gripe’ I couldn’t be certain.

As I slammed the door and flung outdated food on the counter he looked at me and said “Why don’t we put the food in the cabinet and the dishes in there?” pointing to the pantry. Being the logical and responsible parent I responded with “Because.” Read More
