Organize Simplify Create Design

It is perpetual, living life and keeping it simple. Peace of mind comes from having a place for things. As I watched "Horton Hears a Who", with my grandchildren I thought about no matter how "tiny" the thing, it deserves a home. So I live by the old adage, a place for everything and everything in its respective place...

Ceiling Storage

Lord knows I'm not a minimalist. I too have accumulated, lots of stuff. I have good storage in my home, but we still have overflow, or things we want to keep but don't use all the time. We found these great ceiling storage units by Hyloft at Lowes Home Improvement Center that hold the ice cream freezer, coolers, folding camp chairs, fryers and many other miscellaneous items my husband or I needed to store. The units sell for around $46, they are very sturdy and worth every penny. If you do not have a Lowes near you, google Hyloft, I know Amazon, Home Depot and numerous other online stores carry them.

Note to Erin: If you wanted to store baby items you are not using, collapse them or dismantle to a manageable size and store them on the ceiling. I would recommend bagging or boxing to keep the dust out. Label well on the bottom so you can easily see where things are.


  1. we are two of a kind. you know that right? i am blaming you. it's all your fault. that is a good thing. =)

  2. That is such a brilliant idea! I'm another pack rat! :)

  3. Nice!! I will be looking for more info in a few weeks!! That's when I will attempt to take back my garage!!!

  4. Bri, You know I'm not sorry I inflicted you. :) BTW, there is a google link below that might be a solution for that canoe of yours, or did you end up hanging it the day we talked?
    Rosie, I love your comments, I can just hear you speaking! You remind me of my good friend from over the pond. :) Thanks for listening.
    Josh, another child I inflicted. I know you will still have "stuff" left to store in that Hyloft, even after you put the finishing touches on that storage building you and your dad built!!! Even though you are going to install all those cabinets in the garage. lol
