a closet

Our home has one closet that is not in a bedroom. It's in the hall and serves as the linen closet too. A thought: in Nashville we had a walk-in closet in one of our bathrooms. Sheesh. Here we have this, which is my second round-up:
On the floor is the beach bag, vacuum, scale, toilet plunger. Shelf one is towels and tp. Up on top is shower cleaner, dog shampoo, asthma machine and baby bathtub. Everything else is in the middle. At least now we can find the everything else. (I moved the vacuum for the pic.)I'm afraid I don't have a very good picture of the transformation. I completely cleared the "everything" shelf, put the like with like and got rid of stuff we don't use. There's a little basket with sample size toiletries for guests. Behind that is a cup holding extra toothbrushes and travel toothpaste. There are mine and Jesse's toiletry kits, with products in them and filled. And the extra soap, shampoo and toothpaste. Last are the hair clippers. I found the cape for that in the back and got it in the case. I also considered moving the asthma machine. However, if I got a sudden attack, the last thing I'd want to do is go digging for medicine in the garage, so here it stays.
This is the only project that I timed. 45 minutes. I was holding and nursing Anna for 20 min. of that.

good job!
Do you like the baby bath tub? We hated them.. it was easier to just jump in the tub with the babies, but I know some people swear by them.

I do not swear by the baby bath tub, but I like that the babe is not always relying on me to hold up their slippery body. It gives me a back-up support. Also, I rarely take baths. (100% shower gal) When I do, it's to relax, by myself. ;)

Oh how I long to have a linen closet. We only have closet in 2 bedrooms. The 3rd bedroom is a closet itself! DH's grandma has a ton of clothes I don't know how she's able to find anything! Thank you for the comment. I'm glad to see that you're able to accomplish so much with young children at home. Gives me more hope for when our family of 3 is a family of 4 in 9 weeks!
