Our clients are frequently fighting an uphill battle in their laundry room. Here are the most common things we add to laundry rooms to make them function better.

1) Hanging bar for clothes and to store spare coat hangers. Use a garment rack if your laundry area is in your garage and no wall space is available.
2) Hampers: large and sturdy
3) Trash can
4) Folding surface
5) Hang your iron on the wall to use vertical storage space, and clear off surfaces because clutter attracts clutter.
6) A clock

Remember, laundry is NEVER done so lower your expectations… Just doing one of these tips will help your laundry area work better for you.

Paper Management Tip

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

When we are sorting through papers with a client, so much time is spent re-browsing every sheet of paper to figure out why they saved it. If you find yourself going through stacks of paper and needing to re-read and figure out WHY you saved a certain paper, do your (future) self a favor and write a note about why you are saving the paper. Write the next action required or circle the phone number you need to call. If you want to get real fancy, you can write the date on the paper. When you come across that paper in a stack, you’ll know right away why you saved it and you can decide to recycle the paper or act on it.
