Guest Picks: Organized, Fresh and Clean in 2014
A simple row of hooks in the kids’ bathroom means no more towels on the floor. Hallelujah!
I love the style and functionality of locker storage for backpacks, shoes, jackets and more.
I’m trying to make it easy for my kids to get creative, so I cleaned up their art area and lined up several mason jars filled with markers, pencils and crayons.
I am so tired of my boring old dining room chairs. I’m hoping this is the year I replace them with these Eames knockoffs or Tolix-style chairs.
I just bought this cotton dhurrie rug from West Elm for the sofa area and love its fresh look.
Currently, my family and I use paper napkins at mealtimes, but some friends recommended using cloth napkins and giving each family member their own napkin ring so that they can use the same napkin all day and place it in the ring after each meal. I’m a big fan of Raw Materials Design and this style of theirs.
I just found the napkin rings I want for organizing our cloth napkins! These personalized pieces might make a first surprise appearance at our Valentine’s Day breakfast.
My family never has enough hangers. These white ones are on my Ikea shopping list.
My laundry sorting bin is probably the smartest organizational product I own. Over the years, the kids have used the laundry bags as hiding spots, or tossed them out to wheel each other around on the cart. Needless to say, it has seen better days. I think it’s time to replace it with this beauty from Target.
My family has gotten a lot of use from our indoor entry mats, but their nonslip backing seems to have disappeared. I need to replace them before I break my neck. This is one of the better looking entry mats I’ve found.
White towels are my favorite, but they don’t stay white forever. The new year is usually when I head to Costco for a fresh batch.
White canisters are perfect for clearing off the kitchen counter clutter.
Speaking of fresh and clean, I’d love for my kids to have their own pint-sized dustpan and brush.
I haven’t seen this table in person, but from the photo, I’m thinking it would make a great replacement for my weather-beaten outdoor dining table.
This is what I need for my kids’ growing collection of sports equipment.
These metal wall pockets are also on my Ikea shopping list. I’ll be mounting some next to the kids’ crafting area to stash paper and craft books.
I’m looking for a way to make the kids’ Lego collection more accessible. These stacking bins might just do the trick!
I can think of so many uses for these fabric bin organizers: books, magazines, craft supplies, toys, etc.
I’m not sure I’ll ever have one of those beautifully organized pantries, but this set of glass food storage containers would certainly be a step in the right direction.
Yes! A tear-off weekly calendar would be perfect for keeping my family on schedule.Next: Organize Your Family Command Center
