Home-Organizing Tip 10/27

Nightstands

Ideally, the top of the nightstand should be large enough to hold a book, a light, and an alarm clock (and a vase and eyeglasses, if you require them). The nightstand should also have a drawer to conceal items that would detract from your bedroom decor, such as prescription medicines, the television remote, and a small flashlight. If you have a number of medications or other items you use while in bed, consider a nightstand with multiple drawers. A shelf underneath is useful for holding magazines and books to be read. If an item is not used while you are in bed, it doesn't belong anywhere on or in the nightstand.

Do you have any other organizing tips when it comes to nightstands? What is on your nightstand?

i dont have nightstands.  we have this cube shelf behind the bed.  it is a bigger wall piece so it also stores all kinds of stuff that you cant see because its covered by the bed or under the bed.  its like this..

 the top shelf is really accessible and has the phone and alarm clock, glasses, the book i am reading, book light, sleep meds etc (the bottom is also because the bottom of the bed is open).. the rest of it can only be accessed by moving the bed and is used for storing boxes of stuff (like photo boxes or baseball cards) because it cant be seen).
i like it, but i think i prefer the LOOK of night stands.

LOVE our nightstands. :)

We have lamps on both of them. I have an alarm clock and a wedding pic on mine. My drawer has... unmetionables. lol My lower shelf has books and my journal. Hubbies has a crap ton of stuff. He's not as good about keeping his tidy.
