40 Weeks 1 Whole House: Week 5: the Laundry Room

40 Weeks – 1 Whole House: Week 5 Goal - Deep clean and organize the laundry room | Organize 365

Second only to my kitchen counter office, my laundry room is a major household organizational base. When we bought this home 18 years ago {wow – I feel old!}, one of my “must haves” was a first floor laundry room. We do not have an office, so this room really does serve that purpose for […]

How Long Do You Keep Lonely Socks? | Organize 365

Today, I am declaring sock amnesty day. This is the sum total of our mismatched socks. Shocking? We don’t have lots of clothes, so when I do the wash it all gets done.  Yet we STILL lose socks! I have no idea how this happens. These black socks stay because I have bought a bunch […]

Today’s Household Repair Project is another quick one that I put off for far too long. I like to buy concentrated laundry detergent.

No More Stinky Towels

No More Stinky Towels | Organize 365

NO MORE STINKY TOWELS! I love the efficiency of starting a load of wash every morning. Hubby doesn’t mind if I leave the house with the washer running, but the dryer is a NO NO! SO, when I get home at 4 pm, I put the wash in the dryer. Which leads to STINKY TOWELS. […]

Organizing Bug: Laundry Room Tips!


Sherry is a laundry goddess.  She likes her clothes separated and puts a lot of thought into how she does her laundry.     I love how these black laundry baskets are put UP out of the way so she can sort her clothes until it’s time to wash them without tripping over them.   […]

Helping You Add Minutes to Your Day ~ Part 4: Fold Laundry at Night

Folding laundry at night will help you add minutes to your day.

  Tip number 4: Fold your laundry at night. I am definitely a morning person! By 7 pm I am DONE. It’s a standing joke that by 8 pm, I am in my hot bath. One night, we had the family out at a friend’s house until 10 pm. Our neighbor was seriously going to […]
