Living in a condominium, is equivalent to living in a small space. For a family of three, a studio type can suffice but can be a lot challenging especially as we accummulate stuff. Spending more than a month in our condo has taught me to be more organized not just to keep everything neat and in order but to also teach the boys of the house (the hubby and the little one) where to look for things around the house and how to put things back where they are supposed to be.
Being disorganized takes a lot of time an effort on my hubby and I. We have to always ask each other where things are in our small house. It can get frustrating too especially when I have trouble remembering where I kept stuff in the house. Ever had that moment where you cannot find something you kept just because you did not want to lose it? Frustrating, eh?
To prevent frustration and confusion around the house, I decided its about time to get more organized. Honestly, I love organizing but I have to learn to family-organize as well. This means that my organizing skills should be easy for the family members too which is my hubby and soon my little boy. I decided to make the house organized-friendly that everything can be seen and accessed easily.
My partner in organizing is Japan Home Center. It has been one of my favorite stores ever since I discovered it. They offer quality, affordable items for the homes, cars, school, or just about anything customers may need.
One of the many problematic areas in our house is the kitchen cabinets. These is where we place our toiletries, cleaning materials, plastic and ecobags, and bags. The house lacks storage areas so we need to maximize every space we can get.
Here is a before picture of one of the cabinets.
If you look at the photo, its a trying hard type of organizing as I only used paperbags and used boxes to semi organized stuff. I knew I needed to buy better storages, then a Japan Home Center visit was necessary. *wink, wink
Here is the after photo:
This looks a lot better, right? I bought the rack at Php288, 2 medium size basket with handle and 1 small basket with handle.
The tier rack is an easy to assemble four layer rack. Its very spacious and light weight making it suitable inside the kitchen cabinet. The baskets that I bought has handles so its easy to take out. I also will write labels on each basket.
This is just phase one of my organizing challenge because I wanted to remove all paper bags and use more durable storages with labels. Will update you everytime so you'll see how Japan Home Center will help me have a more organized home.
Thanks, Mommy Bloggers Philippines for the GCs from Japan Home Center. And thank you, Japan Home Center for making functional and affordable housewares.
