Tackle It Tuesday...Laundry Room

Tackle It Tuesday Meme
So, yesterday I ran in to some posts for Tackle It Tuesday at 5 Minutes for Mom....and thought, "I need that!" Click on the image to find other's Tackle it Tuesday posts. I try to keep our house reasonably clean, but I am constantly fighting a battle to be more organized and conquer clutter.

My laundry room is one of my worst hot spots. Everyone (including me) takes stuff out and doesn't want to run it upstairs so, on top of the machines it goes. Let me tell you, the mountain can reach unbelievable heights! So for today I decided to tackle it before it gets too out of hand.
I ran all the clean clothes upstairs, ironed the stuff that needed to be ironed and washed the dirty stuff that was waiting on the floor (nice system we have there, huh?). The last load is spinning as I write. I even wiped down the appliances and the shelf and cabinet above. Those wicker baskets are full of socks waiting to be matched, but that will have to wait another day.

If you haven't seen the befores and afters of our laundry/powder room, they are here. See, sometimes blogs do show you the yucky stuff!

Your laundry room at it's most messy is even better than mine! And it's only me and my husband 'cause we're empty nesters. I don't mind doing laundry, I just hate putting it away!

Jan, I wish that was it's messiest...but unfortunately that mountain has been much, much higher! I'm like you. I don't mind doing the laundry and folding it up..I just hate putting it away too.

Your laundry room is beautiful! I have to resort to the garage for our washer and dryer. Hopefully in our next house, we'll have a laundry room. Love the light blue, that's the relaxing color we have on our master bedroom walls - makes me feel like we're in a island paradise.

Yay! High Five! Now if only "I" could get motivated to get some stuff done.
