Summer Organization with All Access Organizers

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Home Depot & Rubbermaid, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #AllAccessOrganizers

I love to have an organized home. It doesn’t always stay organized with three boys, I mean 2 boys and Dave, and now a cute but rambunctious puppy. We spend a lot of days at the pool and our back door drop zone was starting to get a little crazy! Let me show you what I mean.

Before back door

I’m going to show you how I organized this space with the new Rubbermaid All Access Organizers now available at the Home Depot, but before I do, I’m going to address the issues. We have a couple of situations going on here. We don’t have toy storage for the pool toys that are a little too big for our pool bag. So… it all ends up on the floor. Then, we end up chasing our puppy, Zoey, around because she keeps carrying things in her mouth. We also stack the clean beach towels, but Zoey also likes to attack those too. Problem two is that when we get back from the pool all the towels and swim trunks get hung up to dry next to the clean trunks for the next day. It gets confusing which ones are clean because they all end up smelling like the pool.

Rubbermaid All Access

Now enter the Rubbermaid All Access Organizers. The empty space across from our coat rack is the perfect place to add in some storage. I went to Home Depot and picked out 1 large and 2 small Rubbermaid All Access Organizers. What I really love about these organizers is that they open in two places. You can access items from the top like a regular storage tote or you can open the clear door on the front for easy access. Plus, they are stackable to save space and you can make any combination that suits your needs.

Traditional bins and containers work well for storing and organizing items, but it can often be difficult to find and access what you’re looking for – especially if it’s at the bottom of a stack of containers. The NEW All Access™ Organizers have a clear drop-down door so you can easily see and retrieve the items you want, even when the organizers are stacked. It’s great for the kids because they can see what they need to grab when we are heading out the door.

Organizing pool items

Now everything has a place, and it is easy for the kids to use.  The clean items stay fresh in the totes and we can use the coat hooks to hang our used towels and swimwear. The small size was big enough to fit our larger pool toys so Zoey hasn’t chewed up anything lately. I was pretty happy with the color too, since it matched this area really well. Even when pool season is over, we will be using these for school and fall sports gear.

    I have seen the storage containers pop up all over the web and I think they are great!

    I love this!!! I have a children’s-craft-supplies storage problem. These would be the perfect solution. Thanks, Kristen!

    Oh, I had never thought to use them for pool stuff! That is perfect! :) I might have to go out and buy more just to do this. Presently, we have everything in a bag and then hanging over the chairs. I am always searching for all our pool stuff before we leave to go. 😛

I love your comments!!!
