Farmhouse-Style Storage Ideas for Blankets and Towels

Living in a 500 square feet studio apartment and being both a blanket hoarder don’t usually go together. But when it comes to being comfy and cozy, I’m not one to compromise 😉 Storage space has been tight, and without a bathroom closet to store towels, blankets, and the like, I’ve had to get a bit creative.

Ugly storage bins are one option, and we’ve even gone as far as storing extra linens in our kitchen cabinets — because again, space is very limited in such a little apartment! The other option? Building storage directly into your decor! As I work to get our own organization game under control, I’m sharing a few favorite options for storing blankets and towels — all from Amazon, all super adorable, and all well-priced for those of us who are on a budget!

What are your secret storage solutions? Which of these is your favorite?

    Love this! I have no storage space for towels in my bathroom and i have to get creative as well. Now my towel storage is one of my favorite parts of the bathroom. I used a wooden created and nailed it to the wall to create a sort of shelving.

    • That sounds so adorable! My hubs and I are saving up to buy our farmhouse, and our temporary living situation has no bathroom storage, either. I’ve definitely had to be creative on solving that problem, too!

    I love the baskets, but I recently got a ladder and it’s great too.

  • On the other side of this keyboard, I found something amazing.
✨
REAL. AUTHENTIC. COMMUNITY.
✨
There is so much negativity + hurt that happens on social media. But there’s also so much good.
✨
Women getting open and vulnerable and cheering each other on even when things get tough.
✨
I’m so thankful to have found my tribe through building my coaching business. My people. My virtual BFFs. And I wouldn’t trade this gig for the world. 💖
  • Some days look like this. 👈🏻

I started a new program this week, and every single day I’ve been blown away by just how much 20 minutes can push me to new limits.
—
One workout from this week was ESPECIALLY hard. (Death by burpees, anyone?)
—
Like, tears in my eyes, tough. But I pushed through anyway. This journey is about so much more than just about pushing past physical barriers — it’s about overcoming the mental ones too 💗
—
And even though it was hard, even though it was late, even though every cell in my body was telling me to stop, I did it anyway 💪🏻
—
So take a second a look back on your own week — what tough moment have YOU overcome? ✨
  • If you’ve been following me for basically any amount of time, you know what my biggest struggle is... INSOMNIA! 😩💤
—
This year one of my resolutions is to finally conquer bedtime, once and for all! And a HUGE part of that has been establishing a sleepy time routine ✨🛏
—
Turning the lights down low, putting my phone away, opening a good book have all been a huge part of that — but my new favorite thing? This yummy @teamiblends RELAX tea that’s been helping me calm my mind and prep for a good night’s sleep. 😴
—
Adding this stuff to my night time routing has been a total game changer — and sipping from this freakin’ adorable baby pink tea tumbler is def a highlight! (YES, you can put hot tea in that thing! 🙌🏻)

@TeamiBlends is AMAZING and is giving my followers 15% off with my code “ALYSSAB15” 💗

They have TONS of amazing teas, and you better believe I’ll be trying ALL of them! 🙌🏻🍵

  • I so vividly remember being that girl on the right.
—
I was beyond spiraling out of control — I was trapped and gaining weight, and navigating the challenges of a postpartum body but with no baby to hold.
—
And yet, I’m not embarrassed for the girl on the right, and I don’t remember her with resentment. Instead, I’m proud of her. Because despite feeling like the walls were closing in on her, she made the decision to fight like hell.

This journey’s been a tough and uncertain one. But if there’s one thing I’m sure of, it’s that I wouldn’t change a single thing ❤️
  • My world came crashing down on April 28, 2016 when my beautiful baby girl was born still. The next year was a blur spent hiding from the world with the worst moments of my life playing on a loop inside my head.
✨
But then something clicked — I decided to live fully. For HER. I wanted to be the woman that Emma Rose would have been proud to have as a momma.
✨
And so, I put myself first — and as a result, I found healing through my health and wellness journey.
✨
If you’re in the midst of hardship or grief, working on yourself is probably the last thing you want to do. But I can assure you that IT IS WORTH IT, and you might just find healing along the way.
✨
I promise that the only thing you will regret is not starting sooner 💖

It’s not your finances.
It’s not your crazy schedule.
It’s not your current circumstances.
It’s not that it “just wouldn’t work” for you.
It’s not even your lack of motivation.
—
It’s YOU.

It’s time to stop watching, get out of your own way and JUST DO IT.
