Let’s Look-Backyard Organization

It’s ALREADY the second Wednesday of the month!  How did that happen so quickly?  Shay and I are here for our May Let’s Look.  If you’re new here, every month Shay and I host a link-up {and we’d love for you to join us} where we give you a little look at how we handle something.  Our hope is you share how you do it and we all get to learn from each other.  Here’s a little recap of what we’ve shared so far this year…

 In March, I shared My Perfect Night-In.  

Love Languageswere the hot topic in February.

And January had us talking about our Coffee Bar Area, where that magical cup is made every morning.

Today, we’re talking OUTDOOR ORGANIZATION.

On our back patio, we have just a teeny bit of storage but really keep things simple back there.
We have two small refrigerators that house drinks which really come in handy during the summer months.  Then to the right you can see two sets of double doors.  One set houses a trash can with some cleaning supplies and the other houses random things we might need when we’re out back…paper towels, grill cleaner, etc.

You can see it to the left of the picture but that television on the wooden wall we’ve been talking about adding a little cabinet right under there for towels, sunscreen, etc.  Tab and I both are really out of sight, out of mind type of people so we don’t think about it until we’re out back.  I think we’d love that little addition.  

The pool toys can be a LOT so we have a storage bench {similar to this one} right out back.  We’ve moved some patio furniture around and it’s now right where the arrow shows.  {It’s rained both Monday and Tuesday here so I couldn’t sneak out to snap a picture that was bright enough for you.}  We keep our pool toys at a minimum, but everything used for the pool goes inside…goggles, pool toys, noodles, buckets, etc.  At one point we had our pool storage bench around the side of the house so it wasn’t visible but often times our toys didn’t make it back in the bench.  Having it right beside the door makes it so much easier for everyone.

That’s pretty much a little peek at our outdoor organization.  Like I said, we keep it really simple out back.

I shared last year about our patio renovations.  You can check out that post here.

And if you’re looking for some great swimsuits this season for your beginning swimmer, you should check out this post.

Next month we’re sharing our SUMMER BUCKET LISTS!  Hope you join us!
