Is anyone else’s new years resolution to be more organized this year? I definitely don't think I'm alone in this! I am not at all an organized person by nature. Take one look into my work bag or into my closet and you’ll quickly find that organization is not my strength. To be honest, it’s never bothered me that I’m not an “organized person,” I'll admit I'm pretty type B, and because everything still has a place and I can typically find it. However, I really do want to create the discipline of organization in my life. And because I work from home it is hard to work in a cluttered space it almost creates a sense of anxiety.
I want to be more organized in 2018 because it helps to declutter not only your space, but also your mind. In order to start getting organized, I attempted to take on a couple projects this January (which turned out to be just one project after all), and with the help of an amazing husband, incredible and servant-hearted in-laws, and The Container Store we made it happen. First up, we organized Kyle and I’s laundry room, and I'm talking a major upgrade here!
My laundry room before picture is a site to see-- there was zero organization and the shelves above our washer and dryer are too high for me to reach which is pretty annoying when I’m trying to pull down the dryer sheets or detergent. I'm not sure what the builders are thinking when they put these shelves in.
Our laundry room is now super organized and functional and I wanted to share with you all how it all turned out.
We now have our very own folding table so I won’t be folding socks in the open for Gus (our 75 lb goldendoodle) to grab. My favorite is a space for sweaty workout clothes so that we can separate them from our other dirty clothes. Our house has plenty of closets, but I still never found a great place for storing towels and cleaning supplies so the drawers and shelves now in our laundry room are a perfect place for storing these things. It is my very own laundry room dream come true! AND great news you can now get 30% off of Elfa products at The Container Store and 30% off of installation!
Stay tuned for the organization of my closet, the building of our home office and my pantry in the coming months!
