This worked for me!

my linen closet was overwhelmed with shampoo,conditioner,powders.... I took a shoe rack(the kind that hangs over a door) and put as much as possible in there. I not only gave myself room for towels but now I can actually see what I have and it is getting used.

  • a shoe rack with those cloth pockets ?

    hmmm...thats an idea! i might consider that! my sister has this porch that she has TONS of shoes for each person, there's her and 3 kids so she desinated one shoe rack (the metal ones) per person and hung them up beside each other on the wall so it looks like your shopping in a store but still a good idea to easily find them.

  • i kinda have one, if you have a love for gardening and you just dont know what to do with your male dogs who love to spray them every time they go outside....always have some sort of edging around it, it can be anything, bricks, landscaping bricks, mini fences, ect., usually male dogs will stop and pee on the edging instead.

  • I'm always thrilled to find moms on here who have the same problems with space like I do , who have found something that solved their problem.
    You're not kidding!!! I have same problem with teen girls...we have a girls bathrm(Ladies parlor) & boys bathrm(man cave bathrm) because that's what works better with all the women junk taking over , LOL.
    I just barely squeeze my towels in and I hate the way it looks. Every kind of shampoo, conditioner,and face goop you can think of in there,'s been downsized too...Isn't that terrible? :D
