Under my bed hides a multitude of sins. OK, that’s not quite right. Underneath my bed are several conveniently compact storage containers that conceal miscellaneous items of biblical proportions.
That’s more like it.
A large, flat zippered case keeps special-occasion and off-season shoes and sandals dust-free and stashed away.
Another shallow storage bin holds four pairs of show and schooling breeches for horseback riding.
A third under-bed box keeps uncut fabrics for upcoming sewing projects.
Under-bed storage is one of a home organizer’s best allies. With a draped bedspread or with a pretty bed ruffle placed over the box spring, the area under a bed is virtually invisible. It becomes a perfect place to store secret stashes of potential clutter.
Some folks even select sturdy beds with built-in drawers for added storage and convenience.
Whatever you do, when you visit a host’s home, just don’t look under the bed!
