One of my fave bloggers, Beth from The Incomplete Guide to Living, is stopping by today with an easy, cute storage tip for organizing laundry products. (You may remember when I featured her a while back for her super cool DIY camera bag.) Beth is an amazingly creative blogger who cracks me up, and she’ll be popping in from time to time to share her favorite organizing ideas and witty writing!
I don’t know if you guys read Casey’s post on her smoothie station a while ago, but she touched on something that I identify with completely: a severe lack of enthusiasm for putting stuff away – especially if it involves
anything more than opening and closing a cupboard door. For this reason, my laundry detergent, fabric softener, and whitening powder always stay out on the counter in our new laundry room.
We recently finished renovating our laundry room, and I kept seeing this when I looked through the door from the kitchen:
Hmm…not the worst view, but definitely not the most beautiful packaging in the world.
It would fit in the cupboards. But did I really want to get it in and out of the cupboard every single day in order to use it? Nope.
Can anyone guess what’s coming next?
If you guessed “clear storage jars,” you win a prize!*
*There’s no prize…..the question was a complete no-brainer.
I bought a couple of jars for the laundry detergent and whitening powder for a total of £6. The jar with the liquid fabric softener is actually an oil container that I already had but wasn’t using in the kitchen.
That makes me much happier. Something about the glass jars just makes it so much more fresh and clean.
Shall we have a recap?
Have you guys got on the clear storage jar bandwagon? What’s your favorite stuff to store/display in them?
I’m Beth and I’m so excited to be contributing here at Pretty Organized! My husband and I live in England in a farm house that dates back to 13th century, and we are doing our best to make it a 21st century home while maintaining the character of the house. Over at my blog, The Incomplete Guide to Living, I share all kinds of projects and inspiration from my life as a wife, mom, and decorating/DIY enthusiast!
I’ve been a Pretty Organized reader for a while, and three things made me feel an instant bond with Casey:
1) A mutual love of all things beautifully organized
2) Some perfectionist tendencies that sometimes result in procrastination and/or giant messes
3) An inclination to quote Will Ferrell movies anytime the opportunity presents itself
I’m not gonna lie….we’re gonna make a great team! (YUP!!)
This is lovely!
I’d love to know where you got the storage jars from?
Thanks, katie! I got the largest one and the medium one from matalan (in the uk). The small one for fabric softener came from ikea years ago!
