Kids come with lots of “Things”. Clothes, wash clothes, special soaps, toys, lotions, the list goes on and on. And these things, well they are small and never want to sit on the wire shelves of our linen closet. Most especially the wash clothes. They are forever unrolling and falling through the cracks, so annoying! My solution? A DIY Bathroom organizer that hangs inside the door. You can customize them to the size of your door and even hang them on the inside of your vanity doors if you don’t have a linen closet in your bathroom.

Funny thing while creating these boxes I came to a realization. Apparently everyone was afraid that we would not bathe Josslyn. I’m thinking they all got together and decided the best way to encourage us to give her baths without forcing the topic upon us was to buy us copious amounts of washrags. Why do I think this you ask?
Probably because the lower box contains over 80 washrags and there are still at least 20 more still in the packages unopened. Lucky for our friends and family Josslyn does in fact love baths so the wash clothes are all getting used. Best news for us is that we only have to do a load of wash rags once every two months!
