I am a self-diagnosed neat freak. I love to clean and I love to organize. (If I could have a container, holder and/or label for EVERYTHING, my life would be complete!) And this is my brand new blog for everything NEAT!
I have a toddler in perpetual motion, a packrat daughter, a dog and a disorganized husband... and I hope to share the challenges, trials, errors, rewards and insights of being a bit "too clean obsessive" in a family that's not so in love with neatness. And I am making a promise to clean, rearrange, organize and simplify my life... and help you along the way! SO stay tuned for my journey toward everything orderly and efficient!

Day 49: Towel-riffic Tips!

NOTE: These ideas are not new to me, nor were they recently accomplished, but they might be new ideas for you, so I thought I'd share!

You may already have your towels neatly organized and displayed on towel racks, rings and bars. Well, that's great! That's what those doohickys are designed to do! But some of y'all may be taking up space in closets or cabinets with those extra towels that have nowhere to rest. Instead of using up that valuable space, try one of the following ideas to display your towels -- beautifully and efficiently!

This is a no-brainer! Just get a basket that's large enough to hold some towels (I used a wire basket for that wrought iron look), and go to town! Roll up your superfluous towels and tuck them into the basket, and you've created something cute for that empty corner or for right by the tub! This basket sits in my guest bath, ready to be used! Add some decorative greenery, too, if you want! And mix up the towel sizes! It's up to you!

I found a wine holder for a great price online somewhere... but I have no wine to display. And since I wanted to put something on an empty, dull space on our master bathroom wall, it made perfect sense to me to roll up our extra towels and place them in the perfectly shaped holders! Now, it's a clever and fun decorative piece! (You could probably use a standing wine rack, too, just depending on how its designed.) Have fun with it! And enjoy freeing up that much-needed shelf space!

Now, THAT's neat!


  1. My god you would have a field day in my house! Come and organize me please, I will pay your airfair ;)

  2. What a wonderful idea. We are in the process of remodeling our very tiny master bathroom. I'll have to keep my eyes open for a wine rack that I can use. Thanks for the tip. :)



Thanks for your neat comment!
