This video from Nonnahs Driskill of Get Organised Already! is full of organisation tips that will keep your kitchen and bathrooms tidy. One that stood out to us though: Use stackable baskets for laundry — when you remove one to carry clothes, you’ll have another to catch any dirties that appear before the laundry is done.
This particular tip appears at about 1:23, but the whole video is short and worth watching. It’s remarkably simple, and ideal if you have a household where clothes seem to pile up while you’re doing laundry. Just take the top one out and use it to carry the clothes while you do laundry and put them away, and then put it on the bottom when you bring it back. It’s a simple way to have a carrying container for clothes and a space for dirty clothes to go, all at the same time.
Some of the other tips in the video might be familiar though, like decanting half-open bags and such into clear plastic containers you can see clearly, label and reuse over and over, or using rubber bands to compress packages so you don’t have a ton of clutter in your pantry hiding things in the back you should really cook or eat. Similarly, in the bathroom Nonnahs suggests rolling your towels spa-style and storing them in a plastic bin on the floor, especially useful if you don’t have a ton of wall or hanging space for linens or you don’t have a linen closet. Hit play on the video to see them all in action.
