Yep, it’s that dreaded space under your kitchen sink. Ya know, that place where you store all of your cleaning supplies and have to dig to find what you’re looking for.
So I emptied out the cabinet… uh, how did all of this fit under there? I found three, yes THREE, boxes of trash bags. If it was cleaner I probably would have realized I have enough trash bags to last me until 2015.
So I headed to my local discount store (Deals) and purchased these items for $9: two school locker shelves, a 3-pack of white bins, and a large blue plastic basket.
And here’s what it looks like now…
The locker shelves are simply awesome since they double your space. On the left I have all of my trash bags down below (yes, all 3 boxes) and my floor cleaning supplies above.
On the right side of the cabinet I have all of my dish cleaners… dish soap, brushes, detergent, extra sponges.
Then next to the locker shelves I have my little white baskets. I only used 2 of the 3-pack. One is filled with air fresheners and extra handsoap, the other is for extra Magic Erasers, rags, etc.
And the big basket with handles in the middle? This is what I can take around the house with all of my go-to cleaners: dusting supplies, Windex, paper towels, Clorox wipes, a Magic Eraser, clean rags, etc.
Um… why didn’t I think of this before? Rather than running back and forth, just carry all of my supplies with me in a small basket.
No more digging around, plus extra space to grow.
$9 and about 10 minutes of my time.
Yep, totally worth it.
