An Organized Laundry Room Reveal

Welcome back, I hope you had a great weekend!  I had to work, but there was also some time for fun too.  We have also been cranking things out around the house trying to get ready for our Housewarming Party, don’t worry you’ll see a full recap of that over the next few weeks.

Our new construction house doesn’t need much improvement, but we definitely could use more organization.  I am tired of our “stuff” not working for us.  Some of our things have literally sat in the same spot after unpacking them, so it is time to get organized!

One place that was in desperate need of organization was our laundry room.  It constantly had stuff all over the floor, brooms crashing down, and not enough room to move around.  All that plus piles of laundry meant it was time to get some organizational systems in this little room.

I love the way Cassie from Hi Sugarplum organized her laundry room and thought a similar solution would work great for ours as well.  The Elfa system from The Container Store was perfect to corral all of our laundry room items.  However, I didn’t think the price was perfect.  After a quick google search, I found an almost identical organization system on Wayfair.  The best part is it was less than half the price!  Score!

Here’s a full cost breakdown:

The total cost was $100.95.  Not much for all of the use it’s going to have.  What spaces do you have that need a little organizing?  I definitely have a lot more that still need a system in place to stay organized, but I’m going to ignore them and just hang out in the laundry room for a while.  If you need me, I’ll be doing laundry, folding laundry, and sweeping!

    Looks great! I really want to have a permanent drying rack someday. Right now, my drying rack is the shower bar. Good find on the Wayfair deal!

      Thanks! Yeah I feel like a real grown up with my drying rack and ironing board storage.
