biggest organizing challenge in your bedroom is what to do with shoes

Geoff KAugust 6, 2011 at 10:33 pmReply

Our biggest organizing challenge is figuring out what to do with our electronic equipment, especially the wires. We have our LCD TV mounted on the wall, with a blu-ray player, cable box, and home theater receiver attached, and right now there are a mess of wires snaking down the wall, which looks awful. Given that we would like to keep all of that equipment in there (I know some thing it’s a cardinal sin to have a TV in the bedroom, but we love to watch movies before bed), are there any good solutions for concealing those wires for a cleaner, more streamlined look? Thanks!

I have a ton of shoes! Keeping them clean and organized was always an issue. I tried leaving them in the boxes, which took up too much valuable closet space and you couldn’t see what they were. I tried no boxes, again not enough space and they get dusty? Tried the clear containers…again space issue and the shoes would not always fit ( I have big feet ).
I thought about how to keep them fresh ( yes fresh ) and clean… Zip lock bags! The 2 gallon bag fits every style of shoe keeps them clean and they can still breath. I had to reconfigure my shoe racks, but it works great and was/is cheap to do!

biggest problem is organizing papers, we have SO much paperwork with no where to put it all!

LucyAugust 9, 2011 at 9:01 pmReply

Right now, we’re in an apartment with limited storage area, so I’m stuck having to find a home for my craft supplies in the bedroom closet 🙁

Sarah OlsonAugust 9, 2011 at 9:33 pmReply

I have lots of small crafty supplies, but no good way to organize them or sort through the mess without going through a million little zip-top bags. Good divided containers aren’t that easy to find!

Denise B.August 10, 2011 at 3:05 pmReply

I need to find better storage for my crafting and hobby supplies.

luckylifepath22August 10, 2011 at 5:18 pmReply

i have a very very small closet and no room to hang clothes, so they all end up getting stuffed into drawers, even dresses

My biggest organizing challenge is the closet in the bedroom. Too much stuff, so less drawers and space.

clynsgAugust 14, 2011 at 11:56 amReply

My shoes–I don’t have a good shoe holder in my closet, and they frequently end up just being left on the floor of the room.

Marjan MakkiAugust 18, 2011 at 10:19 pmReply

Small closet space for both his and hers is my nightmare!!! Especially if we both love clothes and shoes!!

My biggest organizing challenge in my bedroom is my lingerie, between the slippery fabric, shoulder straps and underwires, there is no easy way to do it. So it all gets stuffed in a drawer and several boxes

My biggest organizing challenge is the bedroom dresser. I do not know how to properly fold my clothes so that I can easily see them without making a mess.

Clean up every day so it doesn’t build up. That is very hard for me.

Thi biggest organization problem is my bra/panty drawer. By the end of the week, all my bras are on top the dresser!

My closet! I’ve tried everything – I know I have too many clothes/shoes/everything for the space – but I don’t want to downsize – these are investments! There’s gotta be a way to compact or store!

Getting everything to fit in my closet! We have one long rack and no drawers or shelves.

PatSeptember 2, 2011 at 6:29 pmReply

The closet is the biggest organizing challenge.

Amy KaufmanSeptember 2, 2011 at 7:24 pmReply

My biggest ‘bedroom’ organizational problem is that I am 35 and still using my ‘baby dresser’. Yes.. the same dresser that I had when I was still in diapers! I only have 1 drawer for my socks, bras, and undies. I am constantly cramming them all in and can never find anything with out a shuffling headache! Oy!!!!!!!!!!!!! Perhaps someday I will get a real dresser?

Jenn S.September 2, 2011 at 11:01 pmReply

My dresser drawers are an absolute mess. Can never keep anything organized.

Gayle CSeptember 3, 2011 at 1:08 amReply

My biggest challenge is storing all the extra bedding, like winter blankets and extra pillows.

My biggest challenge is keeping my dh’s clothes off the floor and flung all over the room.

Tina R.September 3, 2011 at 10:19 pmReply

Well, the biggest organizing challenge in our bedroom is my husband’s TOOLS!! He has single-handedly turned out apartment into his personal woodshop – and that means our bedroom too! There is nowhere for me to move his tools, so I’m stuck with ‘stuff’ in our bedroom with nowhere to go!

Laurie PSeptember 3, 2011 at 10:45 pmReply

My biggest organizing challenge is my closet!!

MandalaSeptember 4, 2011 at 1:19 amReply

Biggest challenge is organizing my closet – it is very small. If I put them in boxes, I end up not wearing half of them or rummaging through them creating a mess just the same. Thanks!

My biggest organizing problem is where to put my perfume, lotions, makeup extra hygeinic items (razors, deodorant, etc)….I’m a couponer. lol

Jill LSeptember 4, 2011 at 8:04 amReply

My biggest challenge is that our room is just so small. I can’t fit another dresser in it. I really am not a clothes hog, but there just doesn’t seem to be enough room. I have a hard time keeping things neat and organized.

katfamSeptember 4, 2011 at 8:17 amReply

Our bedroom is just too small for my clothes and hubby’s clothes, so we end up having piles. Ugh.

My closet is a nightmare…not enough room

Michelle BoylanSeptember 4, 2011 at 10:31 amReply

My biggest challenge is that our bedroom is a dumping ground for everything and anything we don’t want visitors to see. Papers that need to be filed, clothes that need folded, toys that weren’t put up in time, and so on. I’m sure you’d find a little of everything in that bedroom.

Margaret P.September 4, 2011 at 3:06 pmReply

I have way too many clothes and not enough room. I need a scrubs for work, clothes for church, clothes for going out, casual clothes and formal clothes. All of these plus I need a summer and winter section.

Erica C.September 4, 2011 at 4:39 pmReply

My biggest challenge is storing all of my winter clothes. They are so bulky and I have limited space.

LynissaSeptember 4, 2011 at 4:53 pmReply

I have run out of space and place to put things so I hide stuff in the corners of my room or under the bed.

Jennifer MSeptember 4, 2011 at 7:40 pmReply

It’s either the toys in the playroom or the papers on my desk, I’m not sure which is worse.

trinity babichukSeptember 4, 2011 at 8:46 pmReply

My clothes are almost unmanageable, and i have loose papers on top of my dresser!

We have more clothes than we do places to put them. So we have laundry baskets sitting around filled with clean clothes.

My biggest challenge is my husbands crap..he has a lot of it..

sheila k.September 5, 2011 at 5:41 pmReply

Small closet space. Things are so jammed up in there that I keep using “other” clothing so that I don’t have to open the closet. And I don’t have that many clothes or shoes compared to the average American woman.

shirley pebblesSeptember 5, 2011 at 6:38 pmReply

Everything. We have shoes lined up against the walls. Winter and summer clothes together. Linens in the same area. It’s a mess.

Charity SSeptember 5, 2011 at 6:55 pmReply

Having too much furniture in a small space.

My biggest organizing challenge in the bedroom is my jewelry. I can never find the matches for my earrings (and I think my 3yr old may have something to do with that!) I toss everything into one jewelry box………I know, buy another one!
