Clever Closets Around the House

Use a towel rod on the inside of the linen closet for holding blankets. (this is a good idea for back of guest room door too so if guests need extra blankets, they are easy to find)

Martha Stewart Living Fabric Drawer, $7.27. See what I mean about the bin inserts being cuter? There are also solids in loads of colors (beige, black, green, pink, navy, aqua, etc etc etc) and a cranberry & beige striped number.

Also from Catherine: "those stools under the table are actually storage ottomans! I got them at the Container Store and they serve as storage (one for extra towels and linens, one for occasional-use kitchen items kept in boxes), dining table seats (they are so sturdy and even have padding!) and also as TV trays for our couch during Doctor Who marathons. Best purchase for this little apartment by far. $30 each."

Reader Catherine sends in photos of her "Corner of Organization Triumph" and says, "Our bedroom literally holds a full bed and nothing else, so we lofted the bed, painted everything navy, put the bikes and dresser under the lofted bed, and I claimed this random nook behind the bedroom door for my accessories. 2" deep pieces of wood from Home Depot, cut to order and painted white by me (approx. $4 total) Nailed into wall to serve as high-heel storage.

Reader Sunny, a self-described "reformed slob" sent this photo of how she tamed her shoes and writes, "Last year, after the better part of a lifetime (except for when I used to live overseas - mostly because I had less shit) just leaving shit "until tomorrow" (which never really came), I took action. I feel human. I'm not fully converted to clean person ways, but I now find contentment in an organized space. This was how I handled my shoe/handbag/belt problem."

Annelise also writes: "I have also started storing bracelets/hairbands/whatever in sugar bowls? Because lately the universe keeps sending me weird sugar bowls? The point is, they're cute and keep the dust out and are finally being used for something. A girl can only store so much sugar."

Reader Annelise writes in about her jewelry storage solutions: "I wanted to share one of my favorite projects--jewelry storage by pegboard. Make them cut it to whatever size you want at the hardware store, attach picture-hanging hardware, paint it and hang it up. I've added ribbon for pins and more dangly earrings, though you can just use the holes themselves, and you can get a huge assortment of hooks that seem like they're tailor-made for ridiculous bangles."
