This is already day four of this project. I really need to get to work on some of the projects on my list that will take longer than five minutes. Today’s Pin project was an easy one, but one I’ve been wanting to do for a while. It has taken this project to force me to do even the smallest Pins. Crazy.
My laundry room is a mess right now, but I am thankful to at least have a laundry room. The kids tend to dump items in there that they don’t want to put away in the garage. Plus I was using all my laundry baskets for clean clothes, though most of the baskets are for dirty clothes. They even have labels so the kids can sort their own stuff.
Here’s a look at what is in my laundry room though that really isn’t the purpose of this post:
Behind the door is the furnace. Next to that is the washing machine. Next is an old microwave cart that I use to store laundry items and garbage bags. The labeled baskets go on top. Inside the drawer are batteries and other household tools. To the right of the door is my grandmother’s buffet that I painted years ago. Sitting on top is small cabinet that holds cleaning supplies. Next to it is the towel basket. Next to the buffet is the dryer. And next to that sits the vacuum with the broom and mops hanging on the wall.
Now that we actually have all the laundry folded … I should clean off the top of the microwave cart so that I can use all the baskets again.
Okay, so here is what bugs me the most about this room.
The top of the dryer. I do not like things sitting there! Earlier there were 2 games, a couple race cars, and a few rocks. Have you ever had to dig a rock out of the dryer vent because you didn’t see it and then shoved it into the dryer when putting the vent back. This has happened to me more than once!!! I really needed a basket or a jar or something to hold pocket items. Or even items that I find in the dryer because really I admit I don’t clean out pockets very well.
Here is the picture that inspired me from my Pinterest board Products I Love:
By the way, I’m not sure why I have categories for Products I Love and Must Have when they hold similar items. I should fix that.
Aren’t those dogs super duper cute????
Back to the Pin! I made a jar tonight and I put it up high. It’s labeled “Mom’s Tip Jar” because that is what I refer to found money as. My tips for doing laundry. And look! A dollar already! Items in Mom’s Tip Jar will not removed until mom decides to return them. People in this house might start cleaning out their own pockets!
Do you have a place to put pocket items? Or are you super duper good and immediately put away the found items?
