Hi! I'm Karen, a stay at home mom and blogger. Mostly I write about the new foods and recipes I've been making at my house. I like nutella, avocados, muddy buddies, mushrooms, tomatoes, peaches, berries, beans and rice, dark chocolate, cilantro, peanut butter, fried eggs and a million other types of foods. Most of the time, I like to make really easy and simple recipes--that's why I use my slow cooker a lot! I hope you find my posts helpful! Please comment and let me know when you make one of my recipes!

Trick To Keep Your Boots Upright And Your Closets Tidy

Use this trick to keep your boots upright in your closet

(This is the first of a series of posts that show different areas of my house and how I get them organized using little tips and tricks that are inexpensive.)

Since the new year I’ve been on a mission to get my home more organized and tidy.  There are so many spaces in the home that can use my attention.  Each drawer and closet, the pantry, the storage room, the kids play room, kitchen drawers and cupboards, mud room, laundry room…the list goes on and on, doesn’t it?   I am determined that if I can just get one area done per week then maybe by the end of the year my home will be a little more organized.

This week,  I tackled the master closet  and came up with this trick to keep my boots upright.  I like how it makes the closet look cleaner and it helps keep the original shape of the boots as well.  I simply use a water noodle (you can find these at the dollar store) and cut it to the length of my boots.  Then when storing my boots I insert the noodle into the boot to keep it upright.  This is especially helpful for slouchy boots that don’t have a lot of stiffness to them.  Hopefully I won’t be needing my boots for much longer, but here in Utah I’m not holding my breath!  BTW, am I the only one that has far LESS clothes than their husband?  He has so many clothes and of course has a hard time getting rid of any of them.

 P.S. Check out this instagram post on my really awesome thrift store find.  I’m so happy all my cords/headphones have their own little compartment!

P.P.S. Check out the day I cleaned my mudroom…it seriously took all day!  Before and After.

    I use my flip flops, sandals and flat slippers to put in my boots to keep them from falling over. Just insert them heel side down, then twist them so that they spread the boot top out. It works perfectly, I don’t have any excess stuff in my closet and I know where to find my flip flops, sandals and flat slippers.
