31 Days to a More Organized Life ~ Day 17 (Laundry)

Laundry is sometimes a tricky little beast that you think you have control over and then BAM, somehow you have no more undies and 10 loads to get done! As we plan for the new house, I am excited to have a room dedicated to just laundry and cleaning supply storage. Similar to the entry way, I am so excited to be able to use some of the inspirational ideas I have found on Pinterest.

First, is a laundry organization system that looks as cute as it organizes! This is a simple project that Rob assures me can be done in a few hours. It has gone on my wishlist for projects in the new house. I am doing to make plaques that tie to each of the baskets so everyone knows what goes where. I plan to have a separate basket for whites, lights, darks, baby, towel and special wash items.

This is such a cute idea for lost socks!

I have something like this in our laundry room currently but didn’t get a chance to take a picture before I left. We have one container with Charlies Soap which we use to all of P’s cloths. Once we finish the current liquid laundry soap we have, I will be replacing it with powder.

I plan to have four of these hanging on the walls for drying cloths. I like them because they are out of the way when you don’t want them but are easy to use when you do.

31 Days to a More Organized Life ~ Day 16 (Electronics)

Now-a-days, electronics are a part of my everyday life. I carry my iPhone around with me and use it to stay in touch with loves ones, track P’s eating and sleeping habits, take hundreds of pictures and more. I have a computer, two cameras and video camera that all require the use of a different power/charge cord and cord to connect with the computer.

For me to say that items so important in my life need to be organized would be an understatement!

I saw these two items on Pinterest and will be making one or the other for myself and others for Christmas. It is so convenient and I am constantly charging my iPhone in random places. The only thing that would make it better is if it folded to make a pouch for the charger and cord.

I always feel like I have won the lottery when I see and idea, or come up with it myself, where I can reuse something I already have to help organize something else. Reusing TP rolls is one of these! I came across the original idea on Pinterest where they used them in a shoe box to organize cords. Genius I thought! Now I no longer need to frantically search through a box to find something.

With all of those electronics, you need a space to charge everything. I always like for everything to be neat and organized, go figure. One of my biggest annoyances are cords. I hate when they are showing. This isn’t quite what I had in mind but give you an idea. I will be sharing more when I start posting all of the organizing I come up with in the new house!
