Welcome back for another post in my Organize It! series. Recently on a trip to Home Depot I saw these awesome totes from Rubbermaid, they have a drop down panel on the front! I immediately started coveting them and trying to figure out where I could use them. Then Pollinate Media asked bloggers to do a post about using them in there homes. I immediately applied and was so excited when they told me to go shopping! There were 2 places in my house that immediately came to mind. My towel closet and my youngest son Matthew’s room. They were both a mess and it was time to Organize It!
First to tackle was our towel closet. As you can see, stuff was falling everywhere and the things the kids needed to reach were up high instead of low. I took one of the smaller size All Access Organizer totes and put it on the floor, in it I put toilet paper and flushable wipes. On top of it sits a basket that holds light bulbs and refillable soap for the bathrooms as well as spray starch for ironing. In other words thanks to my All Access Organizer I bought at Home Depot, I gained another shelf. When we need toilet paper instead of having to move the basket and take the top off we just pull down the door and take out a roll. Well at least I do sometimes the boys just leave the door open. *Sigh*
I rolled my beach towels and they are now on the bottom shelf so it’s easy for the kids to reach. The next shelf has all of our white bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths. I like using white because I can bleach them when they get dingy.
I moved our twin and king sheets into wire baskets on the next shelf so they are now contained and on the top shelf is another All Access Organizer tote with extra towels and wash clothes. These come in handy when we need to wash the dog or other chores and see how easy it is for me to get one out!
No pulling the tote down and having it fall on top of my head. If I need to I can store something on top of the All Access Organizer in all that empty space on top.
Now it was time for Matthew’s room. His room is the smallest and with his toys and beds there is no room for a dresser. First I took all his dress up costumes and put them in the larger size All access tote in the bottom of his closet. now they are all contained and where he can get to them easily from the top or front.
Next I moved and shelf and stacked two of the organizer totes on top of each other. In one went his Pajamas and in the other are his shorts.
They now work like drawers would in his closet. Socks and underwear went in 2 Rubbermaid containers on the shelf above them. Matthew is almost 5 and he has no problem opening or closing the door on the All Access Organizers.
I have to say these All Access Organizer totes were love at first sight and I can’t wait to go to Home Depot and purchase more for my holiday decorations, my craft room and my garage. The possibilities are endless and since you don’t have to stack, un-stack, and re-stack anymore they will keep things way more organized.
