Aug. 23: Daily Challenge To Keep Your Home Organized & Clean!

Come on!!! This will only take 15 minutes, and it will be well worth it! Post and let us know when you have completed the challenge! Please click the "Thanks" tab at the bottom of this post if you are participating in today's task! I am wanting to see how big the interest is for this kind of thread.

Today, we are going to head to the laundry room! The first thing we are going to work on is decluttering this space! If you are using your laundry room to store random junk/other items and find you don't have enough room to be able to easily launder in this space, then your job is to move the stuff out that belongs elsewhere in the house! Don't worry about organizing the whole laundry room today, we will be in this space for the next several days. Today, I just want you to focus on getting items out that do not belong here!

Items to declutter from this room include:
  • Empty bottles of detergent or other laundry supplies or items which have expired. (For example, did you know chlorine bleach expires within about 6 months?)
  • Clean clothes - They should not be stored in this room!!! They will soon be confused with dirty ones just making more work for you when you rewash them over and over.
  • Stray socks that haven't found a match in longer than a month!
  • Anything not serving one of the designated functions in the laundry room that should be stored somewhere else in your home.

Remember, our goal is to declutter this space! If there is anything in this room that you no longer , then let it go! Donate it, yard sale it, or throw it away! We are taking small steps each day to make our homes a clean, organized, happy place for our families!


Set your timer for 15 minutes, and Go, go, go!!!

Newbies: Jump right in and join us! You are not behind!

*These daily challenges are taken from FlyLady.net. Just 15 minutes a day helps to keep the clutter away!

Perfect, this is our catch all room and I have planned on cleaning the whole room this week.

Mostly it's getting things organized in there and move a dresser in there to store out of season clothes & blankets.

Or laundry is in our mud room/entry area so I took care of a lot of stuff when we dd the entry challenge a few weeks ago. Since then it's stayed in decent shape but the top of the washer and dryer have been collecting items.

I'm changing the word "room" to "area", simply because my laundry "area" is in my HUGE sunroom, which is a total DISASTER!! LOL!

I will take care of the clean clothes, wipe down/dust the shelf/items, and tidy it up.....in that area.

I did take a "before" pic, but so not sure I will publicly show it!

Done! Not too much stuff to move out of there but I gained some valuable flat space back.

I had a bottle of Tide turn chunky and gross after several years.
