This is my least favorite corner of my house. I'll admit my house is often times messy or cluttered, but everything gets cleaned up easy-peasy. This corner, however, for some odd reason, is always a disaster. The shelf serves as a catch all, shoes get tossed in the crate, tools pile up. Ugh!
And that milk crate? It is supposed to be in the trunk of my car! It has all my emergency essentials in it: a lantern, a sit-upon, my Rand McNally Road Atlas (in case I get the sudden urge for a road trip on my way to the grocery store), a multipurpose tool, handy wipes and paper towels... Actually there isn't much in the way of "emergency essentials" in there at all!
