I want to love those sweater organizers but have a hard time with them... they seem to not hold as much as I want. Do you have the open storage or the kinds that have drawers?
I am currently excited about some double-duty ideas:
-building a bench/couch/daybed with arms, that in a pinch can be a guest bed/napping spot, and which will hold three largish basket-bins underneath
-gateleg table for the front room (can be about half-size when its just us 3 or 4 eating, but can grow to have guests or large projects). The one I'm thinking of getting from IKEA http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20104718 also has some storage shelves built in- so brilliant- so that cloth napkins and cutlery can be stored AT the table where you actually need it! But I am worried its going to be too small... so I have to go check it out for reals.
-similar idea- a "gateleg" type rolling sewing cart that can hold the sewing machine and a basket of supplies, and can be a little end table, but can expand out to be a whole sewing table. Idea is from: http://ana-white.com/2010/10/a-sewing-table-for-small-spaces.html
-simple platform bed which can store the kids bed underneath (they sleep on a floor mattress anyway)
-"landing strip" area-- hooks or cubbies- one for each person in the family- to hold our coats, bags, shoes
-shoe-free house FOR SURE
-a customized 4-week chore chart. really hope I can get DH to work with me on that.
there is more but I have to go!
