Storage Never Goes Out of Style image

To customize or not to customize? That is the closet question that leaves homeowners scratching their heads. The short answer: Yes. The long answer: Absolutely, yes. Most of us already know and can understand the basics of how a structured closet system can improve our everyday lives. It maximizes storage space in our home by offering features such as double hanging rods, adjustable shelves and belt racks for increased wardrobe storage. It protects our shoes and purses by giving them a shelf to sit on rather than a pile to get crushed in. It keeps clutter in other rooms of the house to a minimum by defining a space for all items.

Organizing: Cookbooks and Recipes standard

It is one thing to organize the pantry, and cabinets and to keep the sink and counters clean, it is another to be organized about shopping and meal prep. These things go hand in hand because knowing what you have will help you get on track to making something with it! I read that most home makers have about 21 recipes that they draw on for the majority of what they prepare in the kitchen. A great first step is to write down your 21. I wrote mine on index cards and I actually asked my family members what meals they liked the most. This was actually really surprising and nice to hear. On Sunday nights I try to pull ...
