15 Minute Organizing – Under the Beds

There are so many small organizing project that you can do quickly. To give you some ideas of quick projects this is a series of posts that will get you more organized and then make it easy to maintain the order.

Under the Beds

From a young age we are told that bad (scary) things live under the bed. Is it still that way in your home? Do you know what’s under your bed? If you are a follower of Feng Shui  you’ll know that you should not store anything under your bed, as it impedes the follow of energy through the room. I subscribe to this idea, but you may need to use this space for storage.

So what’s under your bed? Let’s clean it out and organize what’s there. This quick organizing project is quick and easy and can provide extra storage space if used well.

Here are some great options from Pinterest.

Here’s a beautiful storage box from Lombok. I think you can get something similar at local stores in your area. It’s important to have storage with a lid, so dust doesn’t collect on your items. If you can see your under-the-bed storage when it’s under your bed look for something stylish, as a opposed to plastic bins.

Maybe you are looking for something more permanent. Consider something like these drawers from Tofufu Studios. Drawers would certainly make it so easy to make the under-the-bed space user-friendly.

Another possibility is a bookcase, like this one from Western Living Magazine. I have seen similar using bookcases from IKEA.
