A peek inside an organizer’s hallway closet…

Here’s where I reveal all! Check out the photos of my own hallway closet.

Household items I keep in my hallway closet (from top to bottom, left to right) include:

  • Blankets
  • Towels
  • African cloth that I use for table cloths and wall hangings
  • Bath rugs
  • Sheets (You only need one extra set per bed at the very most!)
  • Stock of toiletries such as soap, deodorant, toothbrushes and Q-tips
  • Medicines
  • Travel stuff (means toiletry pouches, mini travel iron, travel-size toiletries)
  • Basket holding hair dryer, hair products and brushes
  • Sports medicine (Ben-Gay, cold packs, etc)
  • Sewing kit
  • Hair accessories, makeup, eye care and shaving items
  • Coleman inflatable guest bed
  • Toilet paper, Kleenex
  • Shoe care items
  • Envelopes
  • Arts & craft supplies
Inexpensive plastic drawer sets come in handy for small items.

Shoe boxes come free with each pair of shoes you buy, and they make great organizing containers!

(Lots of Kleenex: is it obvious that I love Costco?)

Prominent labels for piles of towels are useful for directing a confused husband. These were made with index cards and packing tape. Simple but effective.

Eventually, I’ll probably move to something more refined and attractive, such as these labels from Wonderful Graffiti.
