How to Better Organize Your Under-Sink Storage

September 18, 2014 1:02 pm

Whether it’s in the kitchen or the bathroom, the under-sink area is like a no-man’s land of cleaning supplies, sponges, beauty products and, for many people, even a garbage can. Just because these spaces are hidden doesn’t mean that they should be disorganized, however. The under-sink area is an untapped resource for storage space, and these helpful tips will show you how to get everything in order.

  1. Empty it out. Before you attempt to organize the contents of underneath your sink, you should pull everything out and give the cabinet a good scrubbing. Then, toss out any old cleaning products or unused supplies to make room for the things that you use every day.
  2. Add some shelves. If you have enough height underneath your sink to do so, add a shelf to maximize that space. These are available specifically for the under-sink area at most home goods stores. Choose one that best fits under your sink, making sure to account for any low-hanging pipes.
  3. Group things together. Now that you’re ready to put things back, group your cleaning products and other supplies in groups that make sense. This will be different for different people, but an example would be to group all dishwashing supplies in one area, toss them in a small plastic bin, and slide it onto one of the shelves. If you’re tackling a bathroom under-sink area, group beauty products in one bin, cleaning supplies in another, and maybe place some replacement soaps and shampoos in a third.

Page Museum: Discover the Natural Wonders of the Ice Age

September 3, 2014 12:03 pm

The Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits is one of Los Angeles's most well-known attractions. Visitors here can explore a variety of extinct Ice Age plants and animals and will be able to imagine what the world was like when saber-tooted cats and mammoths roamed the Los Angeles basin.

Start your visit in the Fossil Lab, where museum staff are cleaning and cataloging the newest bones and fossils discovered by the site's excavators. Then head outside to watch the excavators themselves at work, searching for more Ice Age treasures. Meet a life-sized mammoth replica at the Lake Pit, and take a tour through the Pleistocene garden, filled with the vegetation that was once abundant in the area. The museum and tar pits are large, and taking it all in can easily be a day-long experience.
