I am a true believer in the saying, “every thing has its space and every space has its thing.”
And I needed a space for my purse. I grew up believing that it was bad luck to put your purse on the ground and I hate the thought of putting it on a chair. But what I really hate is spending ten minutes in the morning looking for my purse.
We recently upgraded our IKEA Expedit with a nice vintage secretary that has all sorts of little nooks for misc. papers and drawers to hold mittens and magazines. But the top was too narrow to support my purse and it just looked messy on top.
Then, I had an AHA moment.
I found a jaunty little drawer pull at Anthropologie in the clearance section for $2.99 and had an idea just crazy enough that I thought it might work…
Two minutes with a drill and voila–a perfectly sturdy hook to keep my happy purse off the floor on the side of the secretary.
What is your AHA organizing moment? A little five minute trick that saved you quite a bit of sanity?
