This is an idea I got of the Neat show. You hang magnetic organizers to metal sheets and put your office supplies in them. This would not have worked well if I'd done it sooner because my boys would have destroyed it. As it is, there are a few items that tend to disappear and cause problems but it's manageable. They've only scratched up one of my little containers so far. It's a lot easier to find these supplies than before and they aren't cluttering up my dresser.
I added these hanging files next to them. Too bad I haven't learned to use them right yet!Then next handy dandy thing I did was this. I always have a big ironing pile where things are only getting more and more wrinkly by the minute. I wished I had some kind of little hanging rod on the wall by my ironing board so I googled different descriptions and someone had invented it. Thank you, whoever you are! This is on solutions.com and it is a retractable hanging rod. I have one next to my ironing board and one next to my dryer. I'm still not the best at keeping hangers by the laundry one, but this system helps a lot more than nothing. Now my clothes don't get half as wrinkled and they look nicer hanging there too. Someday I may actually get everything ironed and be able to fold it into the wall for a day!Now here are some ugly before and after pictures of my office from 3 different angles. Please don't judge me!
Now here it is today.
It may be ugly and scratched, but it's a floor!The cabinets are all nice and organized on the inside too! The bad news is the before and after pictures of my family room. Before:After:sigh!
