This post is part of my Quick Fix Friday Series. The Quick Fix Friday Series is comprised of cheap and simple tricks to make your life easier. I started this series because I often feel like I have no time to make a change in my apartment, and I wanted to remind myself that it’s true. I also have realized that while there is a plethora of information about quick fixes when you own a house, that isn’t necessarily true when you live in an apartment. Each of these tasks takes under five minutes.

I talked a little bit in this post about how my reusable bags were taking up precious real estate in my coat closet:
See that glorious long shelf on the right? It’s the one covered in reusable bags that are lying on their side, taking up as much room as possible. When you live in an apartment, you pretty much have to use every single spot as carefully as possible. This shelf was not a good example of that.
Enter stage left, the White Knight of this story.
D got me this bakers rack for Christmas two years ago. I highly recommend it if you live in a place without a pantry. Or with. Whichever. It’s amazing. What added some amazingness to it is that the posts that hold the shelves in are not flush with the shelves on top. Meaning they are the perfect place for reusable bags!
Which meant that this whole open shelf now gets to have important things on it:
Dryer sheets – super important
D’s work files – super important
Pink bags – super important
Strange collection of lamps??? – super important
& that’s it! It’s amazing how much a little rearranging can do for a space!
What’s you favorite quick switch like this that you’ve done?
P.S. – My sister got me these reusable vegetable bags for Christmas this past year and holy smokes do I love them! I’ve been working hard at decreasing the amount of waste I produce and these totally help!
