Laundry Room Organization

December 21, 2010
Join me today and link up your favorite projects or organizing posts. I would love to see what everyone has done. Please inspire me!

My laundry room was a disaster area, a junk closet, and a depressing place to be.  I needed organization in there and fast!  So, I went shopping for some in-expensive storage to organize this space and found some great stuff at Big Lots! 

Here is my before picture.
I don’t even know what all I had in here.
This was a lot of “get rid of” stuff that needed a place to live until my garage sale this spring.
Here is the after shot!  I found these great “Febreeze” bins at Big Lots for $3.00 each!
They were perfect for this space.
I labeled each bin with the necessary category…

Dry Clean
Over the dryer storage for more hangers & Clothes pins
Easy to use pump bottles for my Get Clean detergent & softner, go on my dryer for easy access. They smell so good!
Baskets are great for storage and look pretty too! I use this one for rugs.
Over the washer storage bins for Stain Removal & Delicates care.
More bins for bleach & extra detergents/softners.

I love the end result here.  Its amazing what some container-izing can do to a space!  

One more time…



A fabulous laundry room re-organization!

If you are wondering where all the stuff went… What we didn’t want/need went to the garage for my spring sale!

    I love this! I am a new follower and love your blog. Very inspirational! I have alot of these projects in mind for after christmas.

  2. Awesome! Think I can make my laundry room organized and attractive even though it’s in my basement?! I am so inspired! Thanks.

  3. Toni says:

    Flannery I KNOW you can make your basement look attractive. Start with uniform storage. IT does wonders!

    Colleen. Thanks for following me. Im so glad to have you.


  4. I am a small walkway where our laundry “room” sits. We rent but I have a feeling our landlord wouldn’t mind if we put up this type of shelving. Love the baskets!

    Oh, I love all your white shelving! What a transformation! I definitely need to rethink my laundry closet.

    Your laundry room looks beautiful! I am happy that my pantry is more organized, but it doesn’t look too pretty! I struggle with the “prettiness” factor quite a bit. Would love to make it prettier, but my brain doesn’t seem to work that way, lol! Something for me to aspire to! 😉

  8. Toni says:

    Kim, I am new with the “pretty” look too… I have found that uniform storage makes things look much prettier. SO, if you find a lot of the same storage boxes, etc. That can help. Thanks for joining my link party!

    Im getting so inspired.

    I like the idea of using a nice basket instead of the bulky plastic thing i carry around. I have a closet laundry room in our bathroom. I have seen some good ideas.

    I didn’t have anything to join your link with but I hope to soon. I love all your ideas for your laundry room.

    you did a wonderful job and have inspired me to try as well

  12. Oh I love it. Everything looks fabulous. Can you come do mine. lol Such a great job of not only organizing, but it looks wonderful. Thanks so much for joining TTT and I wish you a very Blessed Christmas. Hugs, Marty

  13. How nice!
    Although I have to say — your “before” looks like my “after.” My laundry area is in our dungeon — I mean our old stone basement — and only our resident ghosts are happy there!

    wow Toni looks so new looking. Wow I love your flooring. Sorry I know not what your post was about. But in the new year we are getting new floors, so I can’t help but check out everyones.

    Know I have to ask, are you just doing this organising now with the lead up to Xmas or are they projects you did awhile back. you are keeping me so motivated. When do you fit in the orgainising. Something I am struggling with?

    Are you a routine person?

    Sorry lots of questions.

  15. Toni says:

    Jill I commented on your link. Thanks for linking up!

    Hey Toni…I’m back…better late than never…but then I’m always late…lol I always post the same day that I do things and I’m a morning person so I tend to get up early and go crazy and then blog all night…lol Leftover habit from my corporate days as a Controller I guess. Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful evening. Fondly, Roberta

  17. looks great! love the glass bowl of clothes pins! Oh, and the metal Laundry box!

  18. Your room looks great! My laundry room needs that treatment!

  19. bearcatfan1 says:

    It looks awesome! Where did you get that laundry tin?! I love it 🙂

  20. Toni says:

    My laundry tin came from Walmart last year!! $10.00

    Toni; Anybody who spends as much time and brain power thinking about organizing a laundry room as I do is a true friend of mine! I love your bins – shop at Big Lots frequently so I will have to see if I can find those! I have an ugly basement laundry space so mine will never be as pretty as yours, but I keep trying… I found you through Met Monday and followed you and entered a post (not sure that it totally qualifies as an ‘organization’ post – but maybe it’s close enough?)… I hope you’ll stop by my blog for a visit and maybe consider following me too 🙂

  22. You did a great job containerizing your laundry room. Amazing what a few containers can do to tidy up a room. I especially like your glass container for clothes pins. Do you take the container outside like that when you use them on the line? I’m looking for something to contain mine better but also be transferable to the outside when the season arrives.

  23. Toni says:

    They are a decoration since I live in a community that has a home owner association.. and they dont allow clothes lines. 🙁
