I'm so excited to partner with Cottonelle Megaroll again and discuss a little bit about home organization and household supplies. Last month we talked about chores in this household and how we manage three kids and a tidy house.
Today I'll share more about storage and solutions. What tips we have learned to keep our home organized and functioning at it's best.
As our family has grown we've had to get creative with our storage solutions. The larger the toilet paper roll is, the more likely we are to buy it. More toilet paper on a roll means less changing of the roll, and less trips to the store. Not to mention the fact we have 4 bathrooms in our home and that's a lot of up and down stairs to get what we need.
Creative solutions don't have to be complex, sometimes they're the most simple and basic that make the most impact. Little things we do to solve big problems:
- Remove excess packaging and store just the items themselves.
As soon as we buy toilet paper or paper towels, we head back to our storage cabinet and remove it from the packaging. We can fit more rolls on the shelf if we stack it one particular way. And that's exactly what we do.
- Don't buy more than your space can fit.
I know those special deals at the store are so tempting to bring home 18 of the exact same item, don't do it! It'll cause clutter and disorganization if you don't have an entire basement dedicated to storage.
- Store extra where you need it most.
t's not always necessary to schlep into another building or down a flight of stairs for something you need, don't make it hard on yourself unless you're looking for some extra exercise! Store things like extra hand soap or 1-2 extra toilet paper rolls in the bathroom itself. Get creative with a cool basket on the toilet tank, or beneath the sink.
Little tricks like these have made a difference in our home. And I'm curious if you have any tips that you use to help keep storage problems at bay. I'd love to hear in the comments. And don't forget to stop by Cottonelle's site to get coupons and information!
