The Container Store Laundry Organization Tips!

see more by

I met  The Container Store in Scottsdale last month at the Bosch Home Appliances “From Hamper to Hanger” laundry event where they did a presentation on laundry organization tips.  So, contain yourself. I am about to disclose 5 simple ways to organize your laundry days.  Little things made easier by The Container Store!

1. SORT in the hamper, not on the floor. Use a hamper with different compartments so you are sorting as you go.  These hampers have three separate sections for whites, darks and brights.  Check out this one or this one for great examples.

2. GET THE HANG OF IT.   The faster you can get your clothes out of the dryer and on a hanger, the less wrinkled they will be.  Consider installing some sort of hanging device in your laundry room so you can hang immediately instead of piling clothes in the laundry basket.   The ELFA systems have great options.

3. ASSIGN COLORED HANGERS.  Pick a different colored hanger for each family member so you can quickly grab Susie’s clothes or Bobby’s items and go directly from laundry room to closet.  I personally think this is BRILLIANT!

4. DEFEAT THE SOCK MONSTER! How much time do you spend searching for matching socks?  And, where do those missing socks go?   Defeat the sock monster by using these ingenious inventions.  The Sock Cop & Sock Pro products keep your socks together in the wash to save you time!

5. ORGANIZE YOUR LAUNDRY STUFF! Short on space?  These cool storage systems keep your detergents, soaps & stain treatment items neatly tucked into vertical, easy to pull out drawers.   Like this idea? They have larger ones to help organize your laundry and help with sorting too!

Just walking into The Container Store will make you feel more organized.  Click HERE for store locations or to shop online!

I am very happy to share that I am one of the contributing bloggers over at the newly launched, Orange County Moms Blog!

This new blog is a regional blog operated by the SV Moms Group and each sister site is focused on sharing the ups, downs, outrages, struggles, victories and humors of everyday motherhood.   The posts will make you laugh out loud, shout at the screen “me too!” or sometimes tear up because, as a mom, you just know.   It is amazing to be a part of such a great group of mommy bloggers that truly exemplify just how CONNECTED we all are as moms, regardless of geography!

It has been so much fun (and also a tad cathartic) to share some of my personal experiences with motherhood.

You can CLICK HERE to visit my category “Jennifer S” and find four of my recent posts including  my thoughts on Barbie, my confession of being a germ-phobe, me as a mommy circus act and my upcoming Half Marathon in two days {GULP} and the lessons I have learned in my training journey. Wish me luck on my 13.1 miles.  I need it. Hopefully I survive to be able to blog about it!

On a totally different note, I just got back from a little 2 day trip out to Scottsdale, Arizona where Bosch Appliances hosted an amazing blogger event called “From Hamper to Hanger” – an event focused on laundry and tips on how to make it easier!  Everything from stain treatment tricks to organization tips from The Container Store. It was incredible and came away with a ton of great ideas.  Look for my posts to come!

Happy weekend!  Have a great one, see you back on Monday! xo Jen
