Laundry Room Shelf Organization

Our laundry room is a laundry closet.  Above the washer and dryer, I have old shelves that I use to store cleaners, toiletries, and all kinds of odds and ends.  My shelves were a mess (I didn't take a before shot!), so I knew I needed to do something to organize it better.  I have big dreams for this room, but if they ever happen it won't be for years and years and years.  So, for now, I must make do with what I have.   This summer we might try to paint the walls, but I have a pretty big to-do list for the summer, so I doubt we get to it.


So, on to the organization!  I bought these black bins at walmart.  I was hoping to find what I needed at the dollar store, but they didn't have the size I wanted.  I tried to organize everything into different categories.  In case you can't read them, my categories are:  Kleenex and bathroom buddies, Laundry, Heating Pad and Light Bulbs, Misc. Cleaning and Chemicals, Cleaning, Toilet Paper, Toiletries, First Aid.


I put the things we need to access frequently on the bottom shelf and reserved the top shelf for things that I don't use as often.  I then printed labels, laminated them, and tied them on with ribbon.  Voila!
Everything is now organized!

  1. Hi! I found you through "One Project at a Time" over at A Bowl Full of Lemons. I love this idea for the linen closet too! Mine has very deep shelves and items tend to get lost in the back. Sometimes you just need a fresh set of eyes to see the obvious solution. Thanks! :)


Let me know what you're thinking!!
