I keep the girls everyday grooming stuff in a basket but I'm running out of room. I have little tupperware containers for bows, ribbons, bands, etc., but it isn't working too well. I can never seem to find what I need. Then there are the trimmers and the clothes and now that I have two, how do I organize it all?

I keep hunter's "in season" clothes in one of my dresser drawers and the "out of season" stuff in a hat box in my closet. All grooming stuff is kept in a basket on a shelf in my closet but his bathtime related stuff is kept on a shelf in the bathtub. I don't have a lot so its been pretty easy to manage at this point.

My house is being taken over by dog stuff!!! :w00t: HELPPPPPPP!!!!!

There is a mobile grooming table in my kitchen with a canvas bag with lots of pockets for crafts hanging on the handle with brushes, combs, scissors..

Shampoos/conditioners are on a shelf in the outside shower for the summer, they'll be back in the house come fall when it's cooler out.

I have a small armoire with the kids clothes hanging on baby hangers. A couple of wicker baskets full of sweaters. A tupper ware thing of drawers with assorted stuff, like Halloween outfits, etc.

There are at least two to five dog beds in each room :blush:

Doggie stairs leading to the sofa.

I have a pretty hard cardboard type box from Michaels crafts with three layers of plastic inserts - the inserts are for small crafts and fit bows perfectly.

I've cleared out all the bar "stuff" from our bar and keep all their carry bags, suitcases, extra grooming products, toys, etc. back there. So I hope my company doesn't go to the bar expecting a drink! :HistericalSmiley:

The stroller is in the garage. The tiny stroller is in my trunk along with a collapsable crate...and various car seats and front packs (?).... to carry a dog in front of you strapped to your body.

I know I'm missing something....what am I forgetting.....:unsure:

When my son moved out I turned his room into the sewing/grooming room and it's packed and my girls are in short cuts!!!!

I love the craft totes and sewing baskets for storing combs and brushes, etc. And, I bought a baby changing table and store all of their shampoos, conditioners, sprays, etc. on the two shelves. I dry them on the top of the table. Their little grooming table now sits in the closet.

I also have two chest of drawers and a cabinet that I keep their clothes and harnesses, leashes, etc. in.

But.... they have totally taken over the downstairs den, too!!! With their bed(s) and blankets (where'd they get so many blankets???). And, Sam's had these huge beds that I couldn't resist and the girls love them. I also have a huge bin that holds all of their toys. Then the extra car seat and the stroller sits between the fireplace and the dining room table!

Oh, and the bottom shelf of the pantry houses their food and more leashes, etc.

We've been totally taken over!!!! I'm just glad that they continue to let us share their bed and house with them. I should put a sign outside the house that says "Maltmanor" ROFL

I keep all mine together in an antique box I got from my grammy. (don't laugh at my ghetto combs, we're saving up for the maden brush and combs ;) lol)



(before you ask, they're a dremel and a beard trimmer lol)

And the outside

I made a grooming area in my sewingroom. I use a bakers rack to shelve things on,like harness/leash sets in baskets & bins & bottles,etc. I also had a finished cabinet made to use as a grooming table,it has drawers & doors to store things in like bows,clippers & grooming supplies.There's also a dresser I keep the fluffs clothes in as well as my sewing area. This used to be a bedroom. It was my Spring project & except for wanting to paint the walls a different color, I'm very pleased with it.

That's a great idea about the baker's rack. I have one in the garage that i moved from the kitchen, i think i'll get it out of the garage and put in the grooming/computer/guest room.

I have a plastic cabinet with 3 drawers in it. One for cat stuff, one for dog stuff, and one that is sort of misc. pet junk drawer. Micky is pretty low maintenance though.

:w00t:Thanks for all of your great tips and wow, photos included. Sue gets "pic of the week". I love the 'stuffed' puppy on the table, too.:HistericalSmiley:I have been using the laundry room and I hate it. I have a room that is not being used. What do you all think? Should I make it the "grooming room"? Should I take before and after pics?:rockon:

Aolani has two little platics drawers dedicated to his clothes and towels and one dedicated to his accessories, some toys and clippers. I keep some of his other toys in a green bin on the floor for somewhat easy access to him (he's learning that in order for him to ge to the bottom of it he has to tip the bin). We keep all his grooming products (shampoos, conditioners, brushes, combs etc) in one of our half baths.

Thanks, no grooming station is complete without a stuffy,lol. I say go for it. I was using my laundry room for grooming too,my dryer was my grooming table.I didn't need that bedroom anyway, so we just ripped out the carpet,shined up the hardwood floor & now I have a perfect grooming station & a sewing room.

I have two drawers in our downstairs bathroom full of clothes organized winter and summer, there's also a shelf behind out mirror with bath stuff for Bernie and we have a basket in the main room with her leashes and combs and baby wipes for messy faces.

We also have some decorative birdcages with one full of toys and a basket in our living room full of toys so I can cycle them out once in a while.

Our house is also being taken over by our pup!
