Allow me to share my project for the day...

The laundry room. Ugh. It's a disaster. And it usually stays that way.

Ridiculous. That is just a pellet gun, BTW. Simply for fun target practice.

I am the queen of clutter and I can't stand it. I have been this way my entire life...and have NO idea how to break the habit. It's like biting my nails, which has also been a nasty habit for years. (Currently, I'm doing well with that and they are growing nicely at the moment. I am proud.)

Anyhoo, back to the disaster room. As you can see, we have quite a bit of shelving in there but I am NOT a fan of the rack-type shelving. Cabinets to hide the mess would be fantastic.

We are in a rented home, so investing in nice shelving/paint/cabinets, etc., is not top priority.

I need to figure out a way to work with what I've got and get organized. Not only in the laundry room, but in the entire house. Laziness has something to do with it. Not knowing where to start is also takes part.

There just isn't a lot of storage space in this house. Our closets are all stuffed full. Christmas items and such are in the attic. That will be project for cooler get up there and lay plywood down to create more storage area.

Like many others, our budget is tight. What creative ways do you come up with for storage? What new, inventive ways have you found to be organized? By all means, share away. I could use all the help I can get! :)



  1. I just try to remind myself that my apartment didn't get this way overnight so there is no benefit to stressing about it and trying to fix it all in one day. I also read a lot of stuff at - she's on fb too. She teaches you what she calls baby steps to regaining control of your house. And it's nice to read about other people out there who are looking for ways to balance work, life, household chores, etc.

  2. I will check out that link now! It is such a hard thing for me to learn to put stuff back where it belongs after using it, lol!
