“We keep a potato masher in a drawer because sometimes it’s fun to not be able to open that drawer.”
Beware of Catch-All Rooms
- Sort like things together – gather all the cleaning supplies, lightbulbs, batteries, picture frame hooks, rags etc.
- Don’t worry about what containers you’ll store them in – wait until you see how much you have of each category. (Yes, that means NOT going to Target until later on in the process)
- Figure out what items do not need to be in the laundry room (once a year Thanksgiving turkey platters, George Foreman grill that you never used, thermos sets from 1965 that are too cruddy to use now are just a few examples).
- Once you identify what isn’t worthy of being in the laundry room, toss or donate or dedicate another space in the house for those items.
- Now that you’re left with the most worthy laundry room items, decide what you use the most and place them in the easiest to reach spots.
- Now you can decide what containers will work best because you know what shelf or area they’ll be in so you can better determine size and type of container that will work best.
