|The embarrassing state of the laundry before I purged and organized.|
Prior to beginning purging and organizing, I had a few things that I wanted in this room. A system for the kids to help with the sorting of dirty clothes and a place to fold and stack the clean clothes. The shelves on top were great, but way too cluttered with things that needed to be cleared out or trashed.
Taking only a couple of hours one afternoon, the cleaning process went very quickly, and I even have shelf space for storage if the need arises as I continue to work my way through the rest of this house.
|Much better, places to sort and fold.|
Short of blowing out walls, remodeling, and making this space larger, it is being used to its maximum capabilities. I have a few hanging bags that I would like to have installed under the counter (oh honey!) to eliminate the baskets for sorting clothes. We just need to get the extra hardware and find the time to add them.
So how does your laundry area function? Do you try to keep all the laundry in one place or do you sort and then move to wash? When a load comes out of the dryer do you fold it immediately or does it age in the basket for a time period? Once the clothes are folded do you get them put away in a timely manner?
Me, well... I need to go fold about 3 loads right this minute. Somedays are just better than others for keeping on top of this job!
Have a lovely day.
