What to do with empty spaces?

We have become so minimalist in the bathroom that we have 5 empty drawers. What do you do with empty drawers? I have room to put towels in there, but I don't want them to stay moist fromt he steam from showers so we don't store towels in there.

MIL is so minimalist that she has empty drawers and really nothing to put in them. I think she has empty space in every single room in her house. She just leaves it empty.

I'm not there yet

Re: What to do with empty spaces?

Are you sure the towels would collect moisture from the showers? Can you put a sheet of paper in each drawer as a test for a few days? We moved our towels to the bathrooms and it freed up most of the space in the linen closet, which is now my kiddo's art project storage.

I'll test it out. I just don't want to have musty smelling towels before I ever use them. This is a 1950's house that uses every single inch of house for something. We have more storage than I know what to do with.

So far, my empty spaces have been used to store things that were cluttering up another place. Basically they were homeless before the clean up and now they have a home.

That's awesome that you have extra space. You could always keep them empty for now.

If you really want to check for moisture put in one of the damp rid containers (our dollar tree store has them for a buck) and see if it pulls any moisture.

Re: What to do with empty spaces?

Can you define this "empty space" you're talking about?? I have no idea what that is SERIOUSLY. Every nook and cranny of my house is utilized. It drives me batty!!
