Laundry Room. Chaos to Order
New York City via the iPhone + Instagram
I’ve mentioned on the blog a time or two that I’m messy. It’s just my nature.
I also despise doing laundry.
So it would make sense that my laundry room was a messy and neglected place in the house.
*The clothes and tablecloths on top of the dryer have been sitting in that exact spot since before we moved. I think it’s been almost 6-8 months. In fact, when packing up the laundry room at our old place, I simply added those items to the box titled “Laundry Room” since that is where they lived for so many months. Then, when I unpacked the laundry room, those exact things went right back where they belonged.
On the dryer.
But when I saw these numbered wire baskets at Home Goods a few weeks ago, I snatched them up to organize this very room.
I left the detergent out since it’s the most frequently used item. The #1 basket is full of stain removers, fabric softener, and other laundry-related products.
Basket #2 has light bulbs, cords, lint rollers, and other extra stuff that was in the room previously. The small basket to the right of that one has the dryer sheets in it.
The wire basket on the very end has two rolled up tablecloths (from Target) that I’m not using. They are doubling as “art” in the laundry room for the time being!
All I really needed was storage in order to organize the laundry room. Well, storage AND the will-power to fight my natural tendencies.
Are you a Home Good’s shopper? I seriously could spend hours in that store. I love the kitchen, stationary, and small home accessories sections.
