5 must-know hacks for organising pet supplies
From toys and grooming equipment to carriers, food, vitamins and litter, pet supplies demand a lot of space in your home. We put together a few tips for organising your space as pet owners to help you manage your supplies while keeping them accessible.
Create a designated area for pet supplies
A box of toys here, a packet of treats there.. A common sight for all pet owners. Wondering how to organise pet supplies? If your pet’s toys are strewn all over the house, it’s time to create a designated pet supplies storage area. Put together a basket, cupboard, shelving unit or set of drawers for your pet supplies and place your pet’s bed close by to create a living space for your dog or cat. Keep toys in an open basket to encourage play and grooming supplies in a box to make them easier to transport.
Keep a tidy eating station
Many pet owners keep their cat or dog’s eating station in the hallway or close to the door, but this creates a messy trip hazard. Instead, select an area that’s out of the way and place a splash-proof mat beneath the bowls for easy cleaning. Store their food closeby for easy access. If you have space, you can even create a pull-out drawer containing food and a scoop – just be sure to add a latch so they don’t end up helping themselves!
Invest in stackable containers
Food and litter bags are not only unsightly, they’re difficult to store neatly. One of the best storage solutions for pet supplies is airtight, stackable containers, which make food and litter easier to stow and access. This also keeps supplies fresh and enables you to see when you’re running low.
Put walking supplies next to the door
By adding a hook for leashes and a hanging basket for treats and litter bags next to your door, you can ensure all your walking supplies are right where you need them, instead of being scattered across the house.
Make a folder for paperwork
To eliminate the frantic search for paperwork every time you visit the vet, make a special folder for your pet’s paperwork. This will make it easier to keep track of their appointments, health records and insurance. You can also include a medicine tracker to keep tabs on which meds have been given and when.
