January, diets, and organizing just go together. The diet thing isn't going so well for me lately, but I have made a few strides forward in the organization department. Our laundry room and the mudroom/coatroom are right off the garage. I like to keep those last minute things like keys, phone, gloves right there so I can grab them as I'm running out the door. There is a closet right as you come in the door where I keep my purses. This is handy for making that quick purse change out. A friend of mine, Eva, opened me up to the world of Pouchee. These great little purse organizers that make it so easy to switch bags.
The closet, though, isn't large enough to hold my collection of sunglasses ( another weakness of mine) or gloves in a way that they are easily visible and accessible. So to remedy this. I bought a shoe caddy and hung it in the coatroom and filled it with winter gloves and sunglasses. I can easily see what I am looking for without digging through a basket.
Welcome to our BeColorful Home. Ours is an older home, built in 1916 and it has been added on to several times. We have lived here for almost fifteen years now and the house has evolved from a traditional flavor to something a bit more eclectic.I have always loved big splashes of color but I'm finding that I am also drawn to more neutral shades as well. Welcome and enjoy looking around.
