Storage! The curse of parents the world over! At least the ones I’ve come across anyway. I’m always slightly suspicious of someone’s house if they have children and there’s no sign anywhere! Modern house seems to be somewhat lacking in handy cupboards to stuff toys away and older houses weeeelllll there’s never a cupboard big enough!
I have a tendency to take photos of friend’s storage solutions at their houses to try and adapt and use at our home. One day I’ll compile them all and actually get on it with it! I love the American’s and their pantry’s but as yet haven’t actually found a home with one I like! The kitchen Lego used for a washing up stand has made me chuckle a fair few times but somehow I can’t see it lasting in our house. The block at the centre of it will be the exact one the boys need now!!
Of course your friend might object to you taking sneak peeks next time you visit for visit for coffee so why not try out Pinterest or SafeStore have a lovely page full of storage hacks written by mums and I particularly like the cute way Little Button Diaries stores her sunglasses and hair bows. If you’re in need of storage you might as well make it fun and accessible after all! I have to say I do have envy over the stair cases which all slide out to store shoes, books and films in. Living in a bungalow it might look a little odd!
I’m personally saving up identical jam jars to glue or screw under my top cabinets in the kitchen to store all those niggling little things. String, nails, hooks, labels, even cupcake cases! Stay tuned for the post! When I win the lottery I’m hitting up Ikea with my list of Ikea hacks and my home will eventually be organised and tidy! AHAHAHA! I doubt it ever will be but it the thought that counts yes? Please tell me that not all of you have showroom homes? And of course do share your storage hacks!
