You know that junk drawer that seems to follow you wherever you go? Someone may vow to banish it completely when they make the move from, say Scottsdale, Arizona across town to the Taylor Morrison Lehi Crossing community in Gilbert, but it’s just too easy to let it creep back up to a full-blown mess.
Sometimes junk multiplies until you find you have a junk space in the kitchen, the bathroom, or utility room. But that’s not the way it has to be. Here are some ideas to get you started.
The Kitchen – Organize the pantry with plastic stair-steps for canned goods and handy baskets for things like pastas, snacks and items for the kids’ school lunches.
The Bathroom – Get the most out of the bathroom linen closet. Decorative corbels make stylish space dividers.
The Utility Room – If you have kids, you know the big shoe dilemma. Pick a handy spot in the utility room and add shelving just for their shoes.
