Organizing Pet Gear

Filed under: home — fairyguts @ 3:45 am

Once done with my car, I got to do a quick organizing task for Week 18 of Organize Now: Organize Your Pet.  I have two cats, but they own the WHOLE HOUSE and there are a few things that only they use.

Their items were being stored in a cute cat-shaped basket, but the basket is bulky and awkward to use.

Once I sorted the items and threw away things that were old or not used, I put them in a plastic tote.

The tote is rather big, but it will work for now.  The place where it will be stored is next on my list of ‘Big Projects’ and may have the box changed to fit it.

While I’m using the book chapter by chapter as inspiration and guidance, there are things that have come up that needed immediate attention and are being taken care of out of order. For example, the laundry room isn’t addressed until chapter 28, but we took care of most of that shortly after we moved in and bought new laundry machines.

The cat gear will be stored on a shelf I am going to build in the garage soon. We need the garage more functional than it is and we can’t wait until I get to chapter 42!

Speaking of chapters, I am skipping the next chapter (Week 19: Organize your books, cds, and dvds) because this is actually a HUGE project! My husband has so many of each and, while all of the things are in relatively neat shelves or boxes now, I have an ultimate plan which will take custom cabinetry and we are not ready to do that yet. So, I’m moving on to Week 20: Organize Your Entryway or Mudroom and Week 21: Organize Your Livingroom.
