…like toilet paper holders. LOL!
I guess we are not like a lot of people, and (brace yourself, this is probably a shocker 😉 ), but our home does not look like it could be featured in a magazine (told you to prep yourself…). hehehe! It is lived in. We leave stuff lying around (even tho everything is supposed to have a home), we have things stored on our counters, and the littles
usually always have toys out and about.
But, in truth, I WOULD love to have a home where everyone put everything in it’s spot when they were done with it. They don’t. But I am trying to find ways to make it easier to keep our ‘house’ neat.
I love to do little mods! (well, I love to have Vaughn or the boys do them for me!)
Vaughn did a little 3 minute job for me a couple of days ago that I am really liking…
We keep a few things on the counter in the bathroom – this is just where they have become home at…
Left to themselves, they would fall over and roll off when we would move, and sticking them in the sink gets tiring to remember, so we started storing them in an unused magazine rack. I do like for my house to look nice, and didn’t care a bit for that, so the other day Beth and I bought up a toilet paper holder to store them in. You read that right – a toilet paper holder. 🙂It was just the right size for what I wanted, and it took Vaughn only a couple of minutes to install; it took longer to get out, and put away tools, than to use them! 😉 )… Now we can leave stuff out on the counter, but it looks much nicer! You could even use this idea to keep your handsoap/anti-bacterial/lotion corralled next to the sink. I am going to get another one of these tp holders for a towel rack (I don’t care for the round ones, and yes, I have had a round one in here for 4 years 🙁 ), and have one of my guys install it above the sink on the side wall. A regular towel bar is way too big in our little RV bathroom, and I think these are very pretty anyway.
It worked out so great that I plan on getting one for in the kitchen once we buy a Berkey Water Filter system. I’m going to use a regular, 18 inch bath towel bar, installed below the generator board, to corral cups for the kids – each of the littles will have a cup that will be marked with their name, and it will be stored, upside down, behind the bar, to keep it in place. I plan on sewing a pretty drip catcher, and the kids can just help themselves to their own drinks, placing the cups back when they are done.
Simple little project, but one of those little things that makes calling an RV ‘home’ a little easier for our tribe. 🙂
