You all know how much I love my kitties, Peggy and Thelma Lou. You probably also know how much I love organizing. Today’s post has both of those elements rolled together! 🙂
I used two basic principles of organization for this project.
1. Corral similar items
All of the cat’s things are in the laundry room. The basket you see above hangs on the wall over the washer, and holds:
- Kitty treats
- An extra food dish for when we are gone overnight
- Carpet cleaner for kitty messes
- Extra toys
- Kitty medicine
- Samples of cat food I receive in the mail
On top of the washer is a container that holds my empty grocery bags – those get re-used as litter bags. I don’t have a picture of that, sorry!
2. Communicate the organization system
I use a decorative container and a pretty scoop for my kitty food. It’s much easier to feed them out of this instead of a crinkly bag, and I just like the way it looks on my dryer! I also labeled the container, “Cat food,” for easy identification if someone feeds the cats while we’re away. I did this after dog and cat sitting for a family and not being totally sure which food went with which animal!
Here’s to organized pet supplies!
