When we built our house 24 years ago, we didn’t put in a basement or a garage. I also didn’t want a lot of closets. My mother in-law couldn’t believe that I didn’t put in any more storage closets than the linen closet. It is a choice I have not regretted.
I don’t like clutter. (Don’t tell all my table tops that. They will just laugh at you.) I don’t like to hang onto lots of things. If I haven’t worn it in two years, it goes. I don’t have many collections. I’m not all that sentimental.
I do have things that need storage. So, where do I store things?
In plain sight.
Everything from rubber burns to push pins to buttons, to paper clips to any little thing that needs to be stored. You can find how I made it here.
I was looking on Pinterest to find some other ways I can hide things in plain sight. I love these idea!
You can believe that I am on the hunt for baskets at thrift stores and yard sales. I don’t care if they match. I need this in my laundry room.
I want to use some of these out on the porch hold garden tool, pots and seeds. You can get them from Ikea.
These next two are my favorite.
This is my favorite!
Can you guess what this is?
You won’t believe it!
A way to hide the kitty litter box! My daughter needs this for her new kitten.
Sadly, for many, God’s glory is hidden in plain sight. They can’t see it in the a sunset, or in a storm. They can’t see it on a snowy winter day, or feel it on a warm summer day. They can’t see it in the beauty of a flower, the sway of the trees in a gentle breeze. They can’t see in on a starry night.
Do you hide things in plain sight? I would love to hear about it. I need some more ideas!
Have a great day!
