When we first moved into our new place, I had a feeling of excitement for the future. However, as the months went by, that excited energy quickly dissipated. My room was cluttered with toys and clothes that didn’t find their way back to their respective places, so it was hard to find anything! Plus, I always felt like my laundry room was such a mess that it would be hard to do even the simplest task in there. So here are some ways to help you get your laundry room organized and stay organized throughout the year.
What can we do to organize our laundry room?
One suggestion is to use vertical storage to organize your room. This can be done by hanging clothes on the wall with hangers and stacking them on shelves from top to bottom. Another idea is to use plastic bins under your sink that are labeled with key words like “pajamas,” “school uniforms,” and “towels.” These bins make it easy to see what you have and they don’t take up extra space in your laundry room, which is always a plus! You could also invest in an organizer like this one
which fits neatly under your sink. It’s great because it has a large capacity, so you’ll never run out of room for all of your items.
Another way to stay organized is by using an electronic device like this one! All you have to do is input information about each item (name, size, color) into the app so that when it scans items, it will automatically categorize them appropriately. This will help you save time!
Lastly, we need to keep our rooms clean! This means we need to do the laundry often enough for it not be a daunting task for us. We also need to limit the number of things we bring into our rooms so that there isn’t too much clutter in there for us or our guests. If we keep our spaces organized, then we’ll be able to find what we’re looking for easily and efficiently every time!
Add a designated area for your laundry items
When you have less space, it can be hard to find what you need! So, designate an area for your laundry items. This will help you avoid digging through piles of clothes or other items that don’t belong in the laundry room.
Label the shelf with your laundry tags
Laundry tags are a great way to organize your laundry. They make finding what you need quick and easy. Labeling the shelf with your laundry tags will help you keep everything in its place, so that you can quickly find what you’re looking for.
Put Clorox wipes in the trash can
One of the first things I did was to put a big box of Clorox wipes in the trash can so that I could easily clean my hands when I got home from the grocery store. It’s easy to make time for yourself when you have a quick and easy way to keep your hands clean.
Find a laundry game that you enjoy
One of the first things I did when organizing my laundry room was picking out a game to play with. I found this old game that I used to play in elementary school and decided to put it away. Now, whenever I have time, I can pull it out and start playing! It’s a great way to get your mind off what you’re doing for a little bit and makes you feel like you are accomplishing something.
Reward yourself with a new item when you finish your task
Reward yourself with a new item when you finish your task. If you do this, it will help keep you motivated with your laundry room organization.
#1: Start on one side of the room and clean off everything in that direction
#2: Then go to the opposite side of the room, clean that off, and repeat
#3: For every corner of the room that’s left untouched, give yourself a treat
