It was such a beautiful weekend that I decided to invite the whole family over for a pool day to splash around, play a few games and soak up some sun.
I went over to the equipment bin to grab a volleyball to toss around with the kids, but as I opened the lid, it was as if a cloud of green stench rose from a deep pit of doom. The volleyball was flat, the football looked like it had been trampled on by a herd of elephants and all of the other sports gear reeked!
Something needed to be done- and fast! And as if a light bulb went off in my head, I thought it would be a better idea to bring the sport equipment inside and out of the Arizona heat.
In honor of Spring cleaning, I’m sorting through ALL the sporting gear in my home to find a way to organize it- even if that means tossing it out. I stumbled upon these three ways of organizing in Real Simple magazine from David Price.
1. Ultilize your closets!
-Maximize space by using a hanging shoe rack for gloves, hats, balls, etc.
2. Rubbermaid Sports Organizers!
-Coat racks, clear Rubbermaid bins, or this neat stacker makes finding equipment easy.
3. Garage Works Too!
-If you have an area to mount a pegboard to nail items up, go for it! Otherwise, set up a storage unit with color-coded bags full of gear for the family to grab-n-go!
Please let me know if you have tried any of these or which ones you think will work the best. I’m thinking the Rubbermaid Sports Organizers might win in my home! Thanks for some great ideas David!
