Laundry Closet Love: Planning Edition

If I haven't mentioned it before, I'm a Pinterest addict.  There's just something my visual loving brain loves about it.

However, it can make me less than happy about my things.  While this is definitely a downfall, it also gets my behind moving.

A Slob Comes Clean
I've been thinking about my Laundry Closet lately.  See, I'm a slobaholic.   I've been learning and trying to declutter little by little.  Nony from A Slob Comes Clean advocates for cleaning the most visible spaces first.  That's why I focused on a couple of visible areas in my kitchen earlier this summer (see them here and here). 

Now I am ready for a *bit* of a bigger challenge. That's my laundry closet.  I didn't stage this picture at all-- that's how bad it looks.  It does have doors that can shut.  However, it is in the most busy hallway and gets looked at about a million and one times a day.  We leave the door open too often.  So it's my next cleaning/ organizing project.

Here are my planning thoughts:

I like the idea of containing all the mess in baskets.  These are from the Dollar Tree which is good because I don't want to spend a lot of money for a closet.

This is a similar idea with the containers.  I like how it's not too matchy-- especially as I will need some big and some small containers.  I also like the green.


I am not lucky enough to have just a laundry closet though.  My room is a laundry closet/ kitty litter box closet.  I like this little sign about the kitty door.  (Super bummed the Etsy shop doesn't sell these anymore.)


It may be a bit overboard but this post is making me rethink my entire kitty litter system.


Won't a cute little gallery wall make me want to do more laundry?

I am in love with this printable-- everything about it the design, the colors, the meaning.

I am hoping to get this closet looking significantly better in a week.  Stay tuned for my update! 


  1. I saw so many cute laundry prints at Hobby Lobby yesterday! I decided to wait and see if they go on sale first.

    1. Oh wow, I will have to look there. If you are only wanting one, they usually have a 40% or 50% coupon in the paper and digitally.
