Think this is my laundry room? Well think again. But I do love the design, minus the black cabinets. LOL
But let's face it, nobody likes the thought of running our of socks or underwear, but if not maintained, or unless you have a super supply of clothing on hand for your family, if you don't keep up with the laundry, that is exactly what could happen. But I must admit, unless my laundry room is clean, the last place I want to be, is in another messy room in the house. So, although the next area I wanted to tackle doesn't usually get seen by anyone visiting our home, for me it truly is essential to maintaining organization in my home.
Let me give you a peak of how I have things set up. I don't have the most beautiful laudnry room, but it is clean and functional. I'm hoping to start taking care of the beauty portion of my laundry room soon.
Yes, I am very blessed to have 2 sets of HE machines. It's like having my own mini-laundry mat in my home! (Both were purchased used. The middle set was a returned clearance from Sam's Club while I picked up the side units on craigslist from a family that was moving. I ended up paying less for both complete sets than one runs new. Now that's a bargain.) :)
Behind the machines, you can see the drywall where we worked the plumbing to fit in the extra fittings for the second set. Hopefully I will be able to post updated pictures of our fully remodeled and finished laundry room soon. I'm thinking cabinets over the end washer and dryers? LOL
Although my hampers are a bit beat up from years of use, I picked these generous sized hampers from walmart for about $20 a piece. Not too bad, since they fold down to be stored away when not needed. I don't have hampers in the kids rooms, just the laundry room, because I found my kids tend to hoard clothes, then complain when they run out. LOL So this is what works for us. Each hamper holds it's designated load until there is enough to run, which usually doesn't take more than a day.
Some of you may be asking, "why so many?" Let me label them for you. They hold, from left to right: Linens, Military Uniforms, Darks, Jeans, Towels, Whites, & Lights.
Now, if your laundry room doesn't look like a show room, that's okay, but it can at least be clean and organized, to help you complete your mission. Want your own detailed cleaning list for your own laundry room? Check out Mission Organization: Laundry Room, and print off your own FREE copy today!
