It’s a new year – all about new beginnings – so start fresh, clean, and organize.

The beginning of January is always filled with exciting opportunities for a fresh, promising start to the new year.

Feeling naturally optimistic, this year we are all about
thinking positive, keeping it simple and being productive.

As many of us consider making New Years Resolutions this time of year,
personally, we like to focus on a list of plans and goals for our home.

One of the most positive ways to start the new year is by cleaning and organizing your home.

Keeping it simple, I began by tackling the cleaning products themselves.

I usually do well with a Make it pretty, Keep it pretty philosophy –
so I put together a Cleaning Cart Caddy to house all of our cleaning supplies.

Putting together the Cleaning Cart Caddy seemed perfectly fitting for the new year
and this months Michaels Makers DIY Organization Challenge.

Having all of our cleaning supplies in one place, organized, and within an arms reach when needed
was my goal.

The 3 Tier Utility Cart  was found at Michaels. It is part of the Recollections Craft Storage Collection however this cart is so versatile.

I am always a little apprehensive when purchasing pieces that I intend to load with lots of storage items. Especially any piece I have to assemble myself.

This cart is so well made, very sturdy and was a cinch to put together.
Plus, I love the heavy duty rolling wheels!

The two baskets are deep enough to keep the supplies secure on the cart, and the height of both baskets can be fully adjusted.

The top of cart also doubles as a shelf and comes with a removable plastic liner.

Taking full advantage of the top shelf, a basket was added to corral some of our most used multipurpose cleaning solutions.

I find it so refreshing to often change up the scents, so I like to keep a variety of concentrates on hand.

The basket also holds some Swiffer dusters and a roll of paper towels.

The opposite side of the shelf was left open to use as a mini work space – prefect for refilling our cleaning bottles or mixing natural cleaning solutions.

The second tier of the cart holds two boxes for miscellaneous supplies.

The boxes are actually memory boxes from the Recollections collection.

They are a great, inexpensive storage solutions – and I just love the classic metal label holders on each box.

Behind the basket was enough room to tuck in two large glass storage jars.

These hold scrub sponges and pumice stones.

There are a few homemade cleaning solutions we have grown to love and seem to work wonders.

I stored a few of the pantry items used to create these solutions in large half-gallon mason jars for easy access.

This tote holds some additional miscellaneous cleaners, vinegar and a lint roller.

The sides of the cart were utilized as well using a couple of S-hooks found at our local hardware store.

Grommets can easily be added to items for hanging using a grommet plier kit.

I added a set of four to my cleaning gloves and a few to some of our microfiber cloths.
