A small step for laundry room organization.....

Now that summer is here, I am looking forward to some serious pool time with the kids. Our neighborhood pool opened a few weeks ago and so it was time to move the beach towels down to the laundry room from the upstairs linen closet. A sure sign that summer is here!

Our laundry room is right off the garage entry, so it's really nice for the kids to come in wet and take off their suits as soon as they enter. The towels are on a shelf right above the dryer.

I also have a set of hooks that hang on the door where I can hang towels and wet swimsuits! It also functions well for the wintertime, when we can hang wet snow clothes.

Recently, I was looking at the walls of the laundry room, trying to figure out a place where I can hang my purse. I love utilizing wall space for organization. I had been keeping my purse on the counter or hanging on the door hooks. Or.....on the washer. Not so good when the spin cycle is going.

Here is the spot behind the door where we keep a few utility items out of sight.

I had a double hook that came with the house in the master closet. I took it down, since it didn't work for us there. It has since been living in the bathroom drawer. Doing nothing!

I decided to put it to use here. I wanted to put it on a stud, since it would be holding a (sometimes) heavy purse.

Luckily, the hook covers the holes where I missed the stud.

And here is the hook, set into the hardware.

And with my purse....

I'm glad it ended up as a double hook. It's really nice to have a spot for my purse (or two) and even a scarf or other accessory.

This room is slated for a little paint and upgrades. Why not make the laundry room a space you enjoy a bit if you have to be in there?

This is a step in the right direction. : )

The rugs! How can you forget the RUGS! They make it so nice to stand there when you're doing the laundry.
