|Here's where Ken and I keep much of our clothing (under the futon where we sleep) because there's no closet in the den. Since there's no closet, no marvelous organizing ideas.|
|This is right next to the futon, four of those things from Walmart, filled with Addie's clothing, DVDs, and my unmentionables. Closet, I guess.|
|This is my "linen closet" downstairs** that holds a few books, extra TP, and four towels (Very important to keep on top of the laundry, with only four towels!).|
|My laundry room is a piece of the hall with a small counter and shelves. Not big enough for sorting or folding, so I dump laundry onto the futon ~|
|~ and I'm not sure why the baby's up there, but we usually fold in the afternoon with a short DVD, then the kids trot around and put it all away. Perfectly, of course.|
|One of the ideas was to sync your calendar with your smart phone. Don't have one, so I sync my calendar with my steel trap of a brain.|
|This table bench Ken built himself. We cannot hire a carpenter and he is not one, but we want stuff, so he picked up a DIY book and tried. Viola! Three or four kids sit on this at our table and it opens up for me to toss pots and pans ~|
|~ which they wanted to illustrate better for this post!|
|Our vacations do not involve restaurants, hotels, or attractions, so a travel journal is unnecessary. We use tents, sleeping bags, hot dogs, marshmallows, and porta-potties (because I require some civility in the middle of the night). And look at the double duty this $20 beaut can handle: morning coffee cart!|
*This is the summer of the garage so by the new year, we will have a garage to organize and Rees will move out into the efficiency apartment on the side.
**Ken did build another shelf-thing in the upstairs bathroom along the back wall. It's a rectangle box with doors that I put more towels in (the ones too crummy for the nicer bathroom!). I could not locate the camera at the time of this writing to show you (I guess I don't have much of a steel-trap brain...).
Happy weekend ~ laugh with me!
