At Make-Do Mondays, we discuss how we’re simplifying, downsizing, repurposing, buying used, and using what we’ve got.It’s a carnival you can visit to celebrate creative problem-solving, contentment, patience and ingenuity.

Make-Do Mondays with AnnWe just got back from our weekend visit with the Belgian Wonder’s niece.Leftover Spaghetti Carbonara came back in a cooler for tomorrow’s lunch.And the Krispy Kremes are gone, though their calories live on in my midriff.We’ve unpacked and settled in for the night, so I don’t have much energy left for a totally new post. Instead, I’ll be pulling from an old photo to show you how we’re making do in the bathroom. These photos originally appeared in a Works For Me Wednesday post. They’re pretty self-explanatory, but I’ll tell you a few details.The bathroom storage under the sink offers a good amount of space, and we could probably do more to make the most of it. But a fun make-do addition to our bathroom storage came from Goodwill.We found a pretty, brand-new, Shabby-Chic brand, over-door shoe storage unit made of a cloth. The pockets are deep and durable, so there’s a lot of space for all our bathroom gadgets—curling iron, blow dryer, hair brushes, cleaning cloths, scarves, deodorant, and even some medications in the high pockets.We open the closet door while we’re getting ready, and everything is readily accessible. Close the door, and it’s hidden from view.How are you making do?

I remember that post – and it’s still very clever! 🙂 I hope you had a lovely weekend!
Oh, I hope you don’t mind the repeat info. I should have pulled from long, long ago in far away archives instead. I was just too sleepy to be creative.
This looks so organized and convenient. I do hang things inside closet doors but they are very haphazard so I must try to get hold of one of these.
Love that idea! We have very limited storage space in our bathroom (okay, in our entire upstairs area) and this would be fabulous!

Oooh, I love that color in the bathroom! (Clever storage, too!)
Just thot you’d be interested in these 17 verses I love which’ll help you wiseabove. May God flagrantly bless you, my friend, and may the Trinity always put two options in thy Finite Existence (L or R) so you know the Way home to Heaven. May I meet you Upstairs and we’ll go for a beer? I’d like that.

1 Corinthians 11:1
Again, God bless.
I use over-the-door-pockets on all my doors! They can really add storage space.
I have one in my pantry, my linen closet, kids bathroom, my bathroom, my closet, the coat closet and one going downstairs. Craft tools, mittens and hats, screws and nails, batteries, food stuff, extra shampoo, washcloths, colored pencils and crayons, garbage and grocery bags, etc. The list is endless. Worst thing is that I still have a junk drawer in the kitchen!!! I shouldn’t need one with all that storage space!
Thanks for sharing, old posts are good because they can rekindle an idea we forgot to write down. Thanks a million for hosting.
One more thing- I had my husband actually screw them into the door so that they can not be seen from the closed position. I had him do this because we plan on being in this house for several years and don’t have any regulations about holes.
Before we screwed them in, I always felt like they were intruding into our living space. Now you don’t know they are there until you open the door.
