I looked around my house and picked the kitchen to do one thing. I noticed a bunch of baking goods just piled in a corner of the pantry. I already had a basket and decided to repurpose it. I organized the items in the basket, tossed things which were old, and found other items in the pantry to add to the basket. Not only does all of this fit in the same corner, I freed up other space in the pantry.
Inspired, I decided to tackle another space—the powder room. I placed the hand towels—all in the same color and size which makes it easy to know which room they go in—neatly folded in a basket and placed that on a little table.
