Bathroom Closet Makeover....

Do you ever just get so inspired by Pinterest that you run out and buy something like this????

Storage bins from WalMart - $7.96 each
These little lovelies sat on the bed back in the guest room for nearly two weeks, patiently waiting for me to get to work on a project that involved this mess.......

Just one of the shelves in our bathroom closet - I know, disgusting and more than a little embarrassing!
Well, I tackled it today!!!  And I am very pleased with the results, I am!!!  So long, awful mess - hello, organized beauty.....

After - oh, so much better, right???
Motivation for this project - I just hated when I needed a throat lozenge in the middle of the night, or when I was in a flat-out hurry and couldn't find the Tylenol!  Plus I kept buying stuff that we already had because I couldn't put my hands on it.  (We probably have at least five year's supply of Benadryl capsules now....)  

Finding just what we were looking for in all the mess was soooooo frustrating!!!

Since this closet in the bathroom serves as both a place to store linens and keep toiletries, not to mention our dirty laundry basket and extra rolls of toilet paper, it needs to be highly organized - which it was NOT.  

Cleaning up one shelf allowed me to get the entire closet re-organized.

I really wish I had some cutesy printed labels.....oh, well, one of these days.......

For now, it is a very welcome improvement and I can find the Immodium A-D in a real hurry! (After all, aren't you always in a hurry when searching for that?!?!?)

So, what terrific ideas have you gleaned from Pinterest?!?!?  Please take the time to leave a comment and share!

  1. Wonderful Janie! I love the way I feel when I get a space organized, don't you?
    You did a great job!!!

  2. Great re-organizational job! Love your comment about the Immodium A-D. Ha Ha! So true though.

Loving Our New Woven Blinds......

Hey, ya'll!  Labor Day weekend is winding down.....hope yours has been great!!!
Mine was actually pretty busy.  Since Eddie Dale had to work all three days, I decided I would work, too - only I stuck around the house to do my work! 
I decided to go ahead and give the woven bamboo blinds I found at Home Depot a shot.  I've been eyeballing them online for weeks because the cost was only $16.97 each.  I simply hate the plastic 1-inch mini-blinds throughout our house - they are not cottage-y - at all! 
So, I ran out to the local store (their handy dandy website indicated they had thirteen 27"x72" shades in stock) and picked up enough to do the living room.  I really like the roman shade style and the way these filter the light, creating a nice soft ambiance in the room.  Although they are not completely private, they are fine in the living area.  Oh, and did I mention they are only $16.97 a window?!?!?  So reasonable, yet they give me the "look" I've been…

Super Bowl Sunday - What's for Supper!?!?!?

One of our favorite things to do when there's a big game on TV is make up a variety of "finger foods" to snack on during the evening.  Tonight's Super Bowl was no different and we went for some of our favorites - buffalo wings, sausage balls, pigs-in-a-blanket, and, of course, one of our old standbys,  this yummy spinach dip.

It's a tradition to have this creamy dip at least once during the holidays, but we rarely have it during the year.  So, it's a real treat!  It's delicious and rich; and the basic recipe makes a ton - we snack on it for days!  My favorite way to enjoy it - scoop it up with "hint of salt" wheat thins crackers.  Yum yum!!!
Most of you probably have this recipe down by memory.  But, in case you haven't tried it, I'm sharing it below.

Spinach Dip
16 ounce container of sour cream 1 cup mayo 3-4 finely diced green onions 1 small can water chestnuts, diced 1 small package frozen chopped spinach 1 package Knorr vegetable so…

Procrastinating on a Project

Sitting here, listening to the thunder and the pounding rain against the windows and wishing I had made good on my plans to clean out my closet today.

You see, I've been contemplating emptying my closet for months.  And I mean empty it completely!  Then reload with way fewer items.  Some call it a capsule wardrobe - that is a pretty popular term these days.  Others might say it a 'minimalist approach' to dressing.  Either way, it is something that has been wiggling around in my mind for some time. 

And yet, I continue to put the project off.  Why the blazes is that?  It's definitely something I want to do - downsize and simplify my wardrobe! 

The main reason is the sheer size of the project.  It is daunting, to say the least.  Perhaps even overwhelming.  I know it is probably going to take several hours and create a huge mess if I do it properly.  So, I start thinking about the process and begin to lose sight of the end result - which is a simpler wardrobe and less …
