These are lovely!

Just to throw in another one (although not as impressive as the above :p):

I have a piece of ribbon, well actually two of them, attached to my wall that I use to put all of my clips on, like so:

I’ve done this for years, and it’s so convenient! Makes it easy to find the one I want, and I can easily pull it off and stick it back on as needed.

I also usually have a bunch of bobby pins and general barrettes on it as well.

I love this idea Savannah, I was thinking of doing something for the clips I have been using in my hair to tie back my mini fringe as it grows back…. thanks for sharing your picture 🙂

I have a number of areas that are challenging me at the moment:

* My pantry has become overwhelming.
* My wardrobe needs to be sorted and cleaned out.
* The wardrobe in the front entry way has always been a shambles within 5 seconds of reorganising it (it has not shelves?!?!)

It’s kind of become easier to ignore these areas than deal with them. And I don’t really know what to do with them, so that doesn’t help either.

Are you able to slide in some make-shift shelves Tracey to help organise the space?

I’am a full time working mum from home, my husband also workings from home and we have a 4 year old. I work with up to 5 children a day ages between 0-5. I’m finding it really hard to stay organised I find that I stress out and over work to a point where I’m in pain I have found myself cleaning at 12am. It’s really starting to get to me after 5 years of being unorganised and messy. An ideas that could help??

I struggle with our pantry, it is not like yours with the cut-away-shelving, mine has full depth shelves and so I have to move everything out onto the bench to get to the things at the back…I usually have the things used daily or more often at the front but it is still a struggle keeping it tidy…I know what you are thinking…’a man must have designed her pantry’ and I think you would be right..any suggestions to make life a little less shambolic??

I’ve just moved house and now have a corner pantry where the shelves are big triangles, I’m about the same height as Katrina so I can’t reach half the shelves let alone the back of them. The kitschen is also smaller than what we had so I’ve had to store my baking trays and tins in baskets and boxes in the bottom of the pantry which takes away that spot, I’m trying those shelves(wire baskets) that hang from the shelf above but I still can’t see what’s in it clearly! I’d love suggestions too?
