My hall closet is essentially the island of misfit household items. It holds picture frames, bathroom fixtures for a bathroom renovation I haven't done yet, linens, and other random house stuff. It's a mess, and I can never find anything. Here's the proof:
And if you take a step back, you'll see the third problem child shelf (forgive the lack of door casing, we're in the midst of a hallway reno!):
I'm ashamed to say it's been like that for months. Many months. I just avoid that closet. But I can't avoid it forever, so I invested in some of the new Rubbermaid All Access bins. They were made by some wonderful genius that decided to include a clear door that opens to the front allowing you to SEE what's in the bin and easily grab it without having to move the bin or its lid.
Amazing. See how awesome this product is in a laundry room? Heaven.
It didn't take me long at all to organize my hall closet with these bins I bought at The Home Depot. By the way, The Home Depot has a huge assortment of products to organize your home right now during their Winter Storage Event. Besides my usual New Year's Resolution of being healthier, I also want to become more organized and mindful of what I have in my house. Being organized helps me avoid buying duplicate items, and it keeps my house looking nice. I have no excuse to not be organized-- the clear lid does make it so much easier than normal bins and baskets.
After about an hour or so of organizing, I finally finished! One bin holds linens, another holds picture frames and household items, and the other holds all the bathroom fixtures/decor I will install once the bathroom makeover is done. I can see it all, I can access it all, and it's all in its place.
I even wised up and organized my throw pillows (as you all can see...I have a throw pillow addiction). I want these bins all over my home. How great would these be in a garage for spray paints and other tools/supplies that us DIYers have?
The best part is that since I don't have to open the top lid to access my stuff, I can put stuff on top of the bin to maximize my space. I feel like I have a bigger closet now. I have extra shelf space!
I also want to buy some of the X-Small Rubbermaid All Access bins because they fit shoes in them quite nicely, but I'm thinking of how great they'd be for craft storage. I hate when my glitter gets all over the place in my craft cabinets, so I could easily contain it with these bins.
My local Home Depot location didn't have anymore of these in stock, but I'll check another store when I head out of town again soon. The next time you're at The Home Depot, check this product line out. The price, quality, and convenience will put the Rubbermaid All Access line at the top of your must have home organization list for 2014.
The best part? This closet makeover cost about $40. Totally worth it. The hubby insists we get more for the garage and the laundry room.
