Laundry Room Organization Tips
Laundry rooms come in all shapes and sizes. There is no “one” right way to organize your laundry room. So here are some laundry room organization tips to help you get started.
I found containers at K-Mart that fit between your washer and dryer or between the wall and either unit. Slim and clean looking, they will help keep things organized. Use them for those single socks that have lost their mates. Then, every week or two, take about five minutes to match up the pairs you thought were lost forever. It DOES work most of the time! Use the other drawer for laundry soaps and/or other laundry needs, however I use mine for a trash can. It’s right near me, doesn’t show, and is very neat.
Also, if you have shelves that go all the way to the floor (you need this for shorter children), get some baskets, or buckets, like the ones that go on sale for a dollar at drug stores or K-Mart. Put one on each shelf and label each with a family member’s name. If you fold your laundry in the same room, this is a great organizer! Fold everyone’s clean wash but leave their socks in the baskets. Even a three year old can take his basket and dump the contents in his drawer. And, if you know who’s socks are NOT coming out in pairs, put the unmatched socks in the owner’s basket. For your little ones, keep the mismatched socks in the slim drawer until YOU find the match. With younger children, you may never see those socks again if you don’t.
Now go plan time to map out what you need for your laundry room, organize, and simplify! Come back here and let us know how you did.
