Organising the kids shower

My kids have just about outgrown the bathtub.  The twins now 9 and my youngest 7 all inherited their dads long legs. So each night they are having showers.  After the kids had a bath the facewashers would easily dry over the tub ledge.  However now when having a shower I usually always find the […]

    I feel sorry for your twins and their eczema. I was born with atopic eczema and diagnosed at 5 weeks of age. I suffer all year and it is not a good feeling. It is very hard for people to understand exactly how itchy the skin gets. ReplyCancel

  • Lisa

    Katrina I love your ideas and where did you find this website – it is an amazing discovery for the addicted organiser. We are about to do a bathroom makeover/reno and it has given me lots of inspiration! For eczema we have found great results in using Epsolm Salts (try http://www.blants.com.au) in the bath. If using a shower, you can make a mix in a bottle and spray on before or use a foot bath.ReplyCancel

  • That’s a great idea Katrina! My kids are at that age as well, and with Eme having eczema and Seth not, the number of products in our shower is ridiculous. Love how organised your shower is…especially the little sponges hung in a row, up off the floor.ReplyCancel

  • Jodene

    Wow, this shower caddy is fantastic! I am going to head over and see how I can get one. I have a metal one that hangs over the shower head, but I hate it. They always get rusty or they don’t sit straight. This one is perfect!ReplyCancel

    Wonderful idea…great design…but seriously could anyone justify $149.00 + postage for an acrylic shower shelf?

  • Raelene

    I have 3 teenagers in their bathroom and the amount of products that are scattered on the floor is rediculous…….. Your shower caddy may be expensive but at least it will be a one off cost! I off to order one now. Thanks :)ReplyCancel

  • I went to Bunnings/Masters and got a soap dispenser like they have in hotels on the walls with the shampoo and conditioner except I got one with three dispensers in one Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash (thats what I use anyhow) no bottles what so ever. And now that I can see how much is left in the dispenser I just buy the 1 Litre bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body wash when they are on sale and I only need to buy it every 3 or 4 weeks instead of weekly/fortnightly cause I am unsure if it will last the week or not.ReplyCancel

  • Vanessa

    How does the mentioned shower caddy hold up to shower/water scum & mould/mildew?ReplyCancel

  • EJ Butler

    Great idea. I have 2 shower caddy’s in my shower because I hate things on the floor. I have a few shampoos and conditioners in my shower because I wont waste expensive stuff on my boyfriend. I only recently got the new second one before that I had a suction cap one which kept falling off. great Idea but annoying. this one i have now is hanging over the glass and one over the shower head. I would pay $150 for a great shower caddy. I do wonder about the soap scum. another of my nightmares.ReplyCancel

    that is exactly the shower caddy I have been searching for for our shower, thanks for postingReplyCancel

{ORGANISING} and hiding the ironing pile

We recently upgraded our old TV to a flat screen, with that we also needed a new  TV unit.  I found a wonderful long unit to match the rest of our mahogany furniture. Our iron basket used to sit nicely next to the old TV.  We previously kept it in the laundry but then we […]

  • Pahaha hiding the ironing pile… excellent, my ironing pile is hiding my favorite chair! Must get inspired today :)ReplyCancel

  • Yep mine usually hides something else rather than me hiding it! Will have to work on a good hidey hole…ReplyCancel

  • Marcena74

    What a great idea! The baskets also hide the cables at the rear of the unit, too!ReplyCancel

  • Snotface Stinkbum's Mum

    ironing? what ironing? like you, i avoid clothes for myself that require ironing, and hubby is a mechanic – no need for ironing there either! Snotface Stinkbum is not at school yet, so no uniforms either! i iron so much (usually when i sew) that hubby found the ironing board whilst doing some decluttering in the spare room and asked me why we had it “to iron on, dear” “we have an iron?”

    but i do love the ‘non traditional’ use of the storageReplyCancel

  • Shoe_gal3178

    I don’t do ironing, I fold them straight off the line (For the things that get folded) and for the things that are hung I bring coat hangers out to the line and hang them straight on them and put them away. We have a big wardrobe (which helps a lot). And if I don’t have time to bring them in I won’t. But I mostly do.ReplyCancel

  • I only iron when I need something eg work clothes I either iron each morning or evening or do 5 days at once – I started this when I had 2 piles of ironing that I never ever got to. Much easier to just hang everything up as soon as its dry or fold up and put in the cupboards. The baskets are a good idea, but who wants to have your ironing basket under the TV?ReplyCancel

  • Kazzie

    I love it! That’s good thinking … ‘thinking outside the square’.

    Usually I have an ironing basket located on the laundry bench, but being an empty-nester, only throw a few to be ironed on the back of our chair in our eating room as a reminder! Convenient, but an eyesore.ReplyCancel

  • The ironing basket is in our room. It comes out every second Sunday night to sit by the front door so I don’t forget to leave it out for the Ironing Fairy. Aside from that, it sits on the floor between the door and dressing table. I toss the empty hangers back in there as well.ReplyCancel

  • I don’t have an ironing basket at all. All of our shirts are placed on hangers straight out of the washing machine. Once dry, they go straight into the wardrobe, to be ironed as they’re worn. It would make sense to dedicate a particular time each week to iron all the shirts etc, then I wouldn’t be running around like a crazy woman every morning!

    btw – those baskets look fabulous in your tv unit!! Genius.ReplyCancel

  • Joolzmac

    I do the same as Lisa Warren – I put away shirts as they are dry then iron as necessary – one each morning as part of my routine. Hubby is quite capable of ironing a shirt if need be. ReplyCancel

  • Letitia

    My ironing basket sits in my walk in robe until I get a chance to do it. I iron every time I sit and watch TV therefore do it quite regularly. Usually Sunday nights and a night during the week. I love neatly ironed clothes.ReplyCancel

  • Julie

    As I am an Ironing Lady, I do about 3-4 baskets a day for other people plus my own family, there is always lots of ironing here.ReplyCancel

  • … I do not iron. ReplyCancel

  • Jspunner

    My ironing basket is also in our wardrobe but my system is I cut my Mum’s hair she takes a bag of ironing & then I only have to iron it if I really need it.
    Katrina the baskets look great. Would you know where I could find something similar but smaller (like to fit in the Ikea expedit series bookcase) maybe in a faux leather? I can’t seem to find any & you seem to have agood eye for storage.
    Thanks
    JoReplyCancel

  • Jazz

    I had to think about this post for a while. I’ve fallen into the trap of having a plastic tub in front of the tv unit pretty much permanently which is full of my ironing to be done and I hate it. It goes away when I know I have visitors coming but for anyone who drops in, it is on display for all to see. Reading this post made me really think about this. Our side cabinets in our tv unit contain the kids’ hard cover books on the left, and I’ve take the door off it’s hinges to allow the kids access to the books rather than having to open the door all the time, and on the other side, our dvds etc with the door in place (we removed the handle when the kids were little – they couldn’t open it without but we could still manage).
    The kids never use these books any more (mind you, the minute I started thinking about getting rid of them, they went back to them again – doh!) so I am going to pack them up and move them. I’m going to get a proper book case and some might go in there, but the tv unit is going to have it’s door put back in place, and I’m going to find some pretty fabric or paper to cover the glass doors and in goes my washing. Thank you so much for this post! I’m so sure that not looking at my ironing all day will do a lot for my sanity!!ReplyCancel

  • Jodene

    I don’t have an ironing pile/basket either. Everything gets folded and put away after washing and in the evening I just iron the kids uniforms and whatever I want to wear for the next day and that’s it. Takes about 15 mins and it’s done. I just can’t bring myself to do hours of ironing in one go. I have too many other fun things I would rather be doing ;) ReplyCancel

  • Eli

    My ironing basket is kept in the laundry. I fold anything that I can, straight off the line. Anything that has to be ironed gets done of a Sunday night, ready for the week. I love seeing my basket empty for the start of the week. It also means that I don’t have to panic each morning to iron uniforms (I’m so not a morning person) and get to sleep in a little longer.ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer

    I love the long tv console unit… no glass doors! Where did you get it… been looking for just this style!!!ReplyCancel

  • I love reading all the comments for this post. My partner does all the ironing. I can’t/won’t iron. If it needs ironing, I give it away. I fold all washing as it comes off the line. And I hang what should be looked after a bit more. But my partner irons either the kids or his own clothes as they are pulled out of the wardrobes. I try to have tomorrow clothes pulled out before we go to bed, so he irons then. I do make it even however. I love being in the garden, and I do help with mowing and the garden up keep….ReplyCancel

  • [...] Note:  Since writing this post, I have changed where I hide my laundry.  See full details here. [...]ReplyCancel

  • Jaimie

    I don’t have an ironing basket. I have no room at all for one. I just put all the clothes away and if someone needs to wear something that needs ironing we iron it the night before.
    But that is still a clever place to hide other things.- a blanket for cold nights watching tv or maybe all the accessories for the playstation & wii.

    Where do you keep all of your DVDs?ReplyCancel

  • Elissa

    I iron only my clothes (hubbies a tradie and daughter’s clothes don’t need ironing) so its on an as needed basis.
    But as a side note, we have an indoor cat and to eliminate the smelly kitty litter (we were in a unit then) I trained him to use the toilet (as in adult toilet). Its quite nifty as we no longer have to buy litter, scoop his poop and deal with the smell. He does both in the toilet and we’ve only had 2 accidents when both were my fault as I left the toilet lid down. The smell is elmiinated as once its in the water it no loonger smells and I keep a container of disinfectant wipes next to the toilet if he does leave a mess on the seat (rarely).
    Just something to think about :)
    By the way I love this site!ReplyCancel

The youngest is now almost 9 months old, and I am 10kg lighter than when I first fell pregnant in 2010. While packing for a short trip away last night, I realised that my wardrobe consists of 3 tshirts (all same style just different shades) and three pairs of pants. Now I know how my 1 year old knows when we are going in the car – it is the only time I wear these clothes! I need a new outfit desperately so that I have something besides the shorts and shirt I currently wear!ReplyCancel

    I think that there is always someone more worthy than myself to win something where you have to offer up why you deserve to be the winner. I don’t have an Aussie battler story to offer as to why I am more deserving than others. I am not rich in monetary terms yet I am not poor or wanting. Yes I covet what others have, as do most. Like most ladies, I am always wanting more stylish clothes, shoes and handbags, and like most, I usually ensure my family get their needs met first, leaving me without. So yes, I would like to win a voucher, as everyone else here does, alas I do not have a deserving story that will win me that voucher. To all those ladies who do have a greater need than mine, I wish you luck!!!ReplyCancel

    Just had a baby so am looking forward to doing some winter shopping and updating my wardrobe!! I would love some help with dressing myself to better hide my pear shape! :)ReplyCancel

  • Aly

    I havn’t had time to keep up with fashion, so tend to wear my good ol’ jeans and t-shirt…. time for an update I think.ReplyCancel

  • Meghan

    My style is in definite need of an update! I’ve been studying full-time for just over a year now, and during that time I haven’t had even $5 spare to spend on clothes or accessories…the clothes I have are starting to fall apart, and I’m tired of looking awful!ReplyCancel

    i would love this so I could take my best friend shopping. we are both bigger girlsbut she lacks confidence which means lack of clothes. id love to win this on her behalf so she wouldn’t need to worry about spending a dime we could have an amazing day and from then on she could feel hot and confident with the latest fashions.ReplyCancel

  • I don’t have a wardrobe style… when i became a mum to 4 wonderful children and wife to one incredible husband i think i lost me being an individual along the way. Currently a pair of jeans and a tshirt are my style but i’m slowly creeping back to clothing finding a dress recently that i had to have and organising some shopping time with the gals to help pull me out of my mummy wardrobe rut!ReplyCancel

    I only recently donated a top I wore to my GRADE 6 disco. I am 28 so it is about 17 years old. I suppose I should be grateful I can still fit into the same clothes as an 11 year old but I have a feeling it didn’t look quite the same almost 20 years later :)ReplyCancel

  • I desperately need some clothes that fit.ReplyCancel

  • Kerryinoz

    Maybe Maternity Hospital’s could include a pamphlet in the ‘new mum pack’ that warns that you ‘may’ be robbed of your sense of style after having children.
    Giving solution suggestions like – ‘Its okay to seek the help of a stylist’ – ‘You are worth it !!’
    ‘If you look good, you will feel good and happy mummy = happy family :-)

    I love my easy mummy summer wardrobe, but really struggle with a sense of style keeping warm.ReplyCancel

    i do this also but when i buy a bed spread i just buy an extra set of matching cushions and use the cushion covers to glue to the wall canvas, that way you have matching wall art to the doona cover….lovely cheap ideaReplyCancel

  • Narelle Simone

    I have made our own wall art in a similar way, I found a cheap doona cover which I liked and the colours matched our lounge, I cut sections from it and stapled these over a cheap frame from an art supplies shop. The frames all match but are not the same, look great….and can be changed with new fabric if we make any colour changes. I also have the rest of the doona fabric aside to use for other projects (the background colour is white so great to have….am planning to use a small piece inside a photo frame, minus the glass, and stitch our daughters dancing medals onto it….nicely framed and a keepsake)
    Thanks for your posts :)ReplyCancel
