I was also inspired by some of the Spring Spruce Up blog entries I read earlier in the week. I was shocked to find there was a blog all about laundry! I actually don't mind laundry, but when the laundry room gets cluttered, it makes things rough, so that's where I decided to start.
After many long years, I have a laundry room that is actually a room--not a closet, not a hole, not a walk-through room from the garage, but a real room with a window and everything. I love it. When we moved, we got a new washer and dryer and they are both top-loading, which means I can't sit stuff on top of the dryer, like I used to do in the last house. And every apartment we've ever had.
But never fear! There is a counter top to clutter up! I am working on it slowly, and believe it or not, this picture is an improvement over what it has been lately. The cabinets above hold all the art supply stuff the kids use; the cabinets below hold Bobey's litter box.
Now I'm on to the school room--I got inspired by Amber's notebooking post and I have some other ideas to work on to cut down on clutter.
