Laundry Room Clean-up

My oldest niece was here from London last week. I was so busy having a great time with her that I didn't take a single picture. I could have kicked myself over that. Oops. They come home in December for 6 months, so I'll be sure to get plenty of pictures of her and her sisters then.

But hey, I did take a picture of this:

I know; it's so not the same. But it still made me happy. I finally got around to cleaning out the shelf in my laundry room closet. I don't think I'd touched parts of it since we moved in. I found a box of cat toys that I'm pretty sure pre-date Doogie--and he's 11 now. I also discovered 4 boxes of chandelier bulbs. Guess I just kept buying them, then they'd get buried in there. Oh, and those extension cords we could never find? Yeah. Found 'em.

I had grand visions of Martha Stewart-esque organization. Pretty glass jars lined up with cleaning supplies. But reality hit. Glass jars are expensive; plastic bins aren't. Besides, the plastic tubs fit the space better.

But I did give them Martha Stewart labels.

I always feel so much better when I clean and organize an area in the house. Congrats! It looks great!

Hi Anne Marie,

Thanks for the Baylor fan love!
I wasn't fortunate enough to be born under the Texas sun, but my aunt and my cousin are Bears! I grew up knowing the Baylor cheer from day 1.

Awesome. Very inspiring too! I'm sure I have some "interesting" things hiding in my laundry closet as well!

I love it! I keep my cleaning stuff in plastic bins too! :)
