Laundry

The laundry room and the bedroom are undoubtedly connected. Janine Adams, professional organizer and owner at a Peace of Mind Organizing in St. Louis, Missouri says when she sees piles of laundry, it’s typically because there is too much clothes.

“It’s hard to put it away when there is no room,” she says. “The first step is letting go. It’s not doing any good clogging up your closet.”

  • Purge those closets and dresser drawers. If you haven’t worn it for a year, or you don’t absolutely love it, toss it or donate it. This allows plenty of space to put away your clothes, eliminating the need to dress out of your laundry baskets.
  • Since socks seemingly defy laws of physics and become lost despite the best efforts, one way to wrangle single strays is to hang a clothesline near the dryer. Pin unmatched singles to the clothesline with a clothespin to find its mate when it appears.
  • If you don’t have cupboards to stash the detergent or liquid fabric softener, use clear decorative beverage containers with spigots at the bottom (as you would use to serve iced tea or lemonade). These are functional and nice looking.

Bathroom

Also connected to the bedroom is the bathroom.

  • Use dividers in drawers to keep items separated. Clear bins keep items together in a cupboard.
  • Use clear jars or containers for items such as cotton balls or cotton swabs so you can replace them before they run out.
  • Roll towels to create more space and add visual appeal on open shelves.
  • Shoe racks with clear pockets work great to store everything from bandages to extra shampoo since it’s visible and easily accessible.
