The laundry room is now back in working condition. I previously dished about the makeover and the gallery wall details but never gave you a peek into what was inside these newly white cabinets that make up this organized laundry room!
My Organized Laundry Room Cabinets
- You can never have too many bins, boxes or containers.
- In order to stay organized, every single item (literally everything) must have a specific place to call “home”
- Bins, boxes, and containers offer those places – utilize them as often as possible.
- Labels are important but don’t necessarily have to be perfect… just informative and clear. Cute doesn’t hurt
- When your organized area is “pretty”, it’s much easier to stay organized. So don’t feel guilty about making it a little extra “pretty”.
Corral All the Loose Change
While you’re doing the wash, if you’re anything like me… you stumble upon some generous tips from your family members. If you don’t have a place for these tips (other than your own pocket, of course), it’s harder to keep the space organized. By having a place to quickly put these items, it’s much easier for me to stay organized- especially in a hurry.
My clients have been pretty generous this month!
As for the soaps and laundry must-haves? I keep those in this “wash” basket from HomeGoods with my dryer sheets in the silver box below the clothespin jar. I find that with the jugs close and easy to access, it’s less of a hassle to get to work on a new load.
Regardless of what I’m organizing, I try to give everything a SPECIFIC home. When everything has a specific home (or holding place), it’s a safer bet that I’ll continue to be organized. So bring on the bins, baskets, crates, boxes… I can always use ’em for my organized laundry room.
