Oh, the Joy!

Well, the hard part is done and the organizer is installed. Now I just have to figure out what to do with it. We have lots of ideas and we just need to make a decision and start. But as you may remember, decision making is a rather fraught process in the Wayward house.

So here's the before:

As you can see, we keep the litter box in this closet. But the front of the box sticks out past the doors, so we were unable to slide the doors to access the other half of the closet. Also, the bathroom counter is only about a foot from the doors on that side, which made it difficult to access even before we started keeping the cat box there.

And here's the after:

Ta Da! Actually, this is probably the half-way point since I still need to put things away in the closet and find and hang some kind of curtain.

Last weekend, when we switched the cats to a new box, we also switched their litter. Previously we had used a clay litter which left everything with a fine coating of dust, especially the coats and jackets we kept in this closet. When we ordered the organizer we hadn't even thought about switching the litter. We had decided then that we didn't want to hang anything in the same closet with the cat box, which is why there is no clothing rod.

We're always complaining that we don't have enough space in this house, it's 950 sq. ft. Since it doesn't look like we'll be moving anytime soon, hopefully this will help us use the space we do have more to our advantage.
