Small steps lead to big accomplishments! Tackling a tiny area can make a difference in your home or office. This summer we are taking a tour of these projects and creating a plan for you. This project is the laundry room.
Laundry is an important process in our homes and for ourselves and our family. Having a well stocked, efficient space makes it easy to get this job done.
Set your timer for one hour. Eliminate trash first, then recycle plastic containers. Pull out the items that are unused and donate these. With the items that remain, group these together by categories, such as lightbulbs, cleaning, glue and tape, pets, and laundry. Decide if items truly belong in the garage and distribute these at the end of your hour.
Even a laundry room can be a place of beauty! Uniform, attractive containers make the difference. Label the containers to help you and your family maintain order. Think about painting the walls a color you love too!
Laundry stuck in this room forever? Invite your family to the “laundry party” and purchase one laundry basket per person. This way you can distribute laundry to each person’s room effortlessly, with each person putting away their own laundry. If laundry is leaving and not getting put away in your kid’s room, have them watch a movie, fold and put on hangers, and then set a timer for 5 minutes to put it away. Give your family a deadline and a date to get this done every week.
