No one loves doing laundry, well there may be a few people who find it relaxing and therapeutic, but the majority of us only do it because it’s necessary. If you do the laundry in your home then you know first hand how quickly the laundry room can become cluttered and disorganized. With everyone dropping their clothes off  things tend to build up and spiral out of control.

If we just described the scene in your laundry room we want to share a few tips on keeping an organized laundry room.

  • Add organization solutions and accessories by Closet Factory Richmond such as shelving, cabinetry and hooks to optimize all the space in your laundry room.
  • Maximize shelf space by placing the items you use most often in the front on the shelves closest to your workspace. Organize remaining products in order from how much they are used, with the items used the least in the back.
  • Use a collapsible drying rack that is easy to put up and take down on hand for items that aren’t dryer friendly.
  • Use a laundry sorter so family members can separate their clothes as they drop them off, eliminating clutter and cutting down the time it takes to complete the laundry.

January 21st, 2011

medicine cabinetHow many times have you opened you medicine cabinet in search of a much needed item, produced a blank stare and then proceeded to close it? Probably too many times to count. The medicine cabinet is much like the ‘junk drawer’ except it is found in the bathroom. It is one of the most convenient places to throw random items that you use in the bathroom. Because we know the majority of people have disorganized medicine cabinets we are going to share a few tips for cleaning it out for Get Organized Month.

  • De-clutter your medicine cabinet by removing any hygiene related items or things that simply do not belong and move them to the correct place. Only keep prescriptions, band aids, rubbing alcohol and items of that nature in your medicine cabinet.
  • Throw away any items you haven’t used within the last six months or anything with a past expiration date.
  • Reduce bulky packaging by arranging cotton swabs and balls, bandages and other small items in small apothecary jars to keep them dry and for space optimization.
  • Keep the medicine cabinet organized by not adding additional items that do not belong when you are cleaning in a rush, and by reorganizing it every few months.
