Day 10 Challenge---Laundry Room

...or in my case, Laundry Area. I live in a condo and it did not come with a laundry "room" but a kitchen with a laundry AREA! But...I'll take it! I have, again, tried in the past to organize this area but it has been a while and now looks like this:

A laundry basket with just junk...not laundry, cat food and a tub of snacks. The shopping bag has plastic grocery store bags that I use for garbage sacks in bathrooms.

Ohhh... those cabinets. They are on my To-Do List. I really want to paint them but for now, just organize.

I forgot to take pictures during. It was actually early in the morning (as in after midnight)! Here are the 'afters'.

The cabinets still hold a lot. But I did get rid of all the 'junk'. The first picture is of the "tools and supplies" cabinet and the second is the laundry and cookbooks and recipes. The laundry area also stores my paint...both on the dryer and in the cabinet. I will try to find another spot for those but for now, this will have to do.

It is definitely clean and paired down...I even got rid of the junk in the basket and it now has one dirty dish towel. Notice the small tub next to the cat food...

I posted a 'Quick Tip' on organizing our snacks for a week. This week after I went to the store, I bagged up enough snacks for 2 weeks (saving money in the process...no buying snacks next week!!!) and put them in a sealed tub to store them. Since being out of school for 2, going on 3 days...my daughter is antsy to dig in...but so far she as forgot that I now have them in a tub and not int he cabinet. Score one for Momma!


  1. You made a big difference in your laundry room! I also like your tip! Keep up the organizing...you're going to love having things straightened up! Great job!
