Since March kicked off our Laundry Organizing Challenge, I thought it would be helpful to actually know how to organize the laundry room or space where all the laundry get’s done!
In this segment of Organize Your Life, I take you through 5 steps to creating a functional, pretty, and cost-effective laundry room!
1. Once you have pulled everything out and cleaned, SORT through the stuff that was in there. Decide what NEED your laundry room to have in it and what you WANT to have in it. No matter the size of the laundry room, create zones or areas for different types of stuff you will have to store and organize.
utility supplies like batteries, lightbulbs, tools, etc
extra household items
2. Create “kits” or bins for each of these categories.
Using small and large containers, organize supplies and label clearly.
3. Use wall space-
Hang shallow baskets, storage bins
Buy a small tower of shelving and use containers
Install cabinets or shelving above washer/dryer all the way to the ceiling
Consider a wall-mounted ironing board to save space
4. Install a hanging bar
Tension rod across a small space
Rolling cart station
Brackets with bar
Retractable clothes line
5. Decorate it!
We spend so much of our week doing the task of laundry, so make your space pretty and enjoyable to be in. You don’t have to spend a ton of money to do it.
