|1. Adding a hook to the bathroom wall for easy potty seat storage. This seat was always leaned against the wall, and it drove me nuts. I never even thought of putting up a hook until I saw my lovely friend L had done it in her bathroom. GENIUS!|
|2. Buying a hanging storage caddy for C’s stuffed animals. Until I bought this, C had a ton of stuffed animals (all gifts) at one end of her crib. I knew it wasn’t safe to have them there, but she doesn’t roll over yet, so I figured it was OK until then (since they were at the opposite end of the crib). But they looked messy. I actually wanted to turf them all, but didn’t (see above, RE: gifts no one wants to receive). Then I realized that D has a similar solution in HIS closet, so I bought C a pink one at Giant Tiger for about $5. Now they’re safely out of sight until she’s old enough to play with them.|
|3. Buying a Dollar Store broom exclusively for the top-floor bathroom. I’ve reached the stage of post-partum awesomeness that causes your hair to fall out in clumps. This meant the floor of my top-floor bathroom (which is off the master bedroom, but also accessed via the hall) was constantly covered in looooong dark brown hairs. Ew. I never remembered to bring the main broom upstairs to sweep, so I just kept getting grossed out every time I was in the bathroom. Solution? A Dollar Store broom and dustpan, which I stash in the linen closet upstairs. No excuses now for not sweeping this bathroom, is there?|
What easy solutions do you implement in your house to make it less chaotic?
