I honestly do not know how a laundry area gets so cluttered up unless it’s because this room connects the garage to the kitchen. On way in or out the room becomes a total catch all for every scarf, every shoe and every thing else that gets flung off and missing in action.
This was such a simple and inexpensive fix. You can purchase these fold up containers at any Wal-Mart or Dollar Tree. They are perfect for this particular space holding light bulbs, sheets and linens.
