Organizing small spaces are hard enough, but a high-traffic room is much harder. The laundry room which connects the house to the garage is the highest-traffic room in the home. Not only do we use that door as the main door, but also it is a catch-all: shoes, keys, mail, cleaning supplies, and tools.
The room is 58 square feet, which is about the size of a bathroom. It is narrow and allows a bit of walking room in front of the washer and dryer. Formerly, I was using the one wire shelf above the w/d to store detergent and other supplies. I had a hard time reaching for these items, so I purchased a six-inch, four-tier rolling cart for $21 from The Container Store. To keep from compulsive shopping, I only go the TCS for certain items. This cart was a must have. It is perfect for so many rooms, such as the laundry rooms, bathrooms, and garages. Since it is very light weight, heavier items should be placed at the bottom.
I am still working on organizing the wire shelf. I purchased two stackable shoe racks from Walmart for $20 each. They are perfect for beside the door.
How are you organizing small spaces on a shoestring?
