Middle Aged Organizing Porn!

It's THAT time of year again...
Please prepare to upgrade your Lunacy Settings.
 You'll need to restart
Trashy Chick Factor
Delete all Barbies
It's time to roll out...
Sunny Pritchard Version Five Point Two Ohhhhhhhhhhhh! 
That's right~ The Redhead is now 52.
 And what, praytell, are my adorable little genius Minions doing for Momma's big day?
We started the organizing last weekend!
My favorite projects include big impact results with minimal expense.
In fact, I prefer free.
So as my gift to YOU, my Besties, her are some goodies from my Style File!
These little inspiration shots take mere minutes, need no real instructions,
and in most cases, no new purchases!
Come with me...let's look through some porn together!
Hang boots with pants hangers.
I love this.
Boots can be an impossible mess;
this keeps them in order, clean, and scuff-free.
 Use Shower Curtain Hooks to Hang Handbags
 Again, a ridiculously easy idea using things you already have.
I tend to hoard the hooks when I change them out;
now I'll have a use, and I won't have to put more hooks in the wall.
 
 Use Glass Bottles to Store Bracelets and Ponytail Holders
 I like this trashy fix!
A couple of empty bottles inside a free wine crate, and you have art,
order, and shelves.
Add some cup hooks to the bottom for those sparkling statement necklaces
and display them like sun catchers.
 
 Hang Shoes on the Wall Using Crown Molding
A little leftover molding adds up to all those heels being at
your fingertips minus the need to crawl around hunting them down.
  Cut Up a Pool Noodle and Place in Boots to Keep Them Upright
 Brilliant, custom boot stuffers from the Dollar Tree.
Fabulous boots cost some serious scratch...
I myself have spent upwards of nearly twenty bucks on a pair before.
Turn Your Hangers to Find Out What You Really Wear
I'm finally tossing out all of my over-sized fashions.
THIS is helping me be even more ruthless.
 
 Store Matching Sheets Inside of Their Pillowcases
I've been doing this for years, and it streamlines not only putting things away,
but changing the bed linens.
 Hang Baskets on Rails to Store Towels and Shower Supplies
I like baskets for hiding messes, not to mention categorizing and grouping messes.
 Make Bathroom Wall Storage out of Mason Jars 
and Picture Hangers
THIS is too easy to replicate! Scraps of lumber and empty jars add up to storage,
a rooting center, a wall vase...the possibilities!
 
 Store Your Hair Appliances with a magazine rack Attached to the Inside of a Cabinet
 How about a heavy duty box, like Capris Sun?
 
 Put a Shelf Over Your Bathroom Door for the Stuff You Don't Need Regular Access To

 
 Hang a Ladder from the Ceiling for Air Drying Clothes
 
 Use a Shoe Organizer to Store Cleaning Supplies
 
 Use a Rail in Your Sink Cabinet for Cleaning Products
 Repurpose!
 Hang Pots and Pans on the Ceiling
 
 Utilize Wall Space to Hang Utensils
 Short curtain rods work, too.
 Use a Magazine Rack to Store Pot Lids
 Keep Bulk Items in Stackable Bins/Drawers
 Supplement Your Fridge Storage
 Use Tension Curtain Rods as a Divider for Cupboards
 Spice tins as storage.
 Store Foil, Saran Wrap, and Wax Paper Rolls Inside of a Magazine Rack
 Mark and Label Everything!
You could also hang nametags on bins and baskets.

Shall we?
