Default This is what you do when you are an organizing freak and also an empty-nester. haha!

If you have read any of my posts, you may well know that I am a clean/organizing freak. It helps that my kids are grown and out of the home but not so much that I have 3 puppies!

I imagine that all of you have nice, organized structure for all of your babies' things. I did not. I had their back up food in our hallway pantry (not walk-in) and my husband's sports drinks had crowded the bags to the bottom shelf, back corner. Their medications and such were in our bathroom closet taking up space we needed for bathroom products and our medications.

So, I cleared off a shelf in one of my guest room closets and got more bins (I love bins) and organized most of the girl's things. Their harnesses and leads are in the same green bin but in the closet by the front door and their sweaters and such are in a drawer in a dresser.

This is what I ended up with! Food, treats and medication/emergency stuff all in one little location!
Since I bought the PetFlow Groupon, I have a few more bags of ZP coming. I may have to move some other stuff off of another shelf to make room for their "inventory"...haha!

I know that this is nothing fancy and I am glad that it is behind a couple of closed doors, but I feel so in control of all of their stuff and I knew that NO ONE else would get this or care but you all and I needed to share with someone!

I have OCD, so seeing your pictures just made me very happy!
Seriously, if you ever come to Canada give me a call we'll get together and clean or organize something!

Nice work! I need to organize my girls' stuff more. All their food and treats are just in a bottom cabinet in our kitchen. And there clothes, well, some are in their bag (like a diaper bag, lol) and some are in a bin in my bedroom. And their harnesses and leads are in their bag as well.

You have a lot of Ziwi! I wish I was that far stocked up! I have a lot of Fromm's kibble, lol. A lot.. but I want a stock like that of Ziwi & Stella and Chewy's!

I am jealous! I have their food, supplements, and treats in cabinet. Leashes, sweaters, and harnesses are in a plastic set of drawers. I really want a whole shelf like yours.

Thank you all for not thinking that I am the looniest person you know. I'd LOVE to come organize with you!! It really makes me happy. I just giggled thinking that the part that pushed me past normal is that I actually photographed it and uploaded pictures...haha!

I have 5 bags of ZP now, 3 more on the way. When I get free shipping, coupon codes or Groupons I load up. I can only get it at one store locally and it is MUCH more expensive than I can get in online (sadly. I'd really rather buy local). It looks like a 2.2 lb. bag is just lasting me 10-12 days so I need close to 3 bags a month. I could switch now to the 11 lb. bag but that would mess with my new bin system...haha!

I bought a bag of S&C freeze-dried to try and also a small bag of the Real Meat treats.
