Man That Works? Monday

I love the fact that our home has plenty of storage space. I remember the day we moved in and I thought to myself, "There is absolutely NO way I will fill up all of these closets!" Of course, this is a fairly large home compared to our home in Lincoln. As a matter of fact, I had to buy a mini pantry for our home in Lincoln just to have a place for canned goods, etc. So, as you can imagine, any cupboard space would be well-appreciated.
I know it's hard to believe, but the day came (almost 3 years later) that I managed to fill up every part of every closet.
With this in mind, I had Bill delve into a "simple" task for me (I have to use the word "simple" loosely when it comes to Bill and projects).
He made this little cart for me to simply slide under our bed for extra storage. It's just a piece of plywood (scrap from our garage) to which he attached 4 casters. This has been a space-saver and it was literally less than $10 to make. I'd like to have another one for our bedroom and one for the kids' room too.
And, again, my heart goes pitter patter. It's the simple things.

Nice. You should put a label on your Man that works? Monday posts so I can go back and find them later!

That is a clever idea! However, at the current moment my bedskirt is *ahem* torn off . . . So I shall save this idea for a time whatever I organize under there I can hide. ;o)
