I read a book on organizing once that contained a bit of wisdom that has stuck with me since. It suggested that BEFORE you go out and buy even one container to begin organizing, you sit down and evaluate what your needs are in the space that you are attempting to clean up. Hmmm. Such a simple idea, but it is one I think a lot of people skip. If you take that advice, your satisfaction with the finished product is guaranteed to sky-rocket because the space WORKS. When you are beginning a remodel, your first thought is probably improving the aesthetic value of your room, but this is also your chance to put your room to work for you as well. Who couldn’t use a little of that?
So you saw the room that I am going to be improving in Post 1–our laundry room/”entrance-for-many” to our home. I’ve had a lot of time to live in the space and think about what it needs, and the problems in the rest of the house that the remodel can help solve.
There you have it. The laundry room list of problems that I hope to incorporate solutions to when I work on this room.
