Spring Cleaning Day #1

This week begins my Spring cleaning & purging! I have made the vow to serious declutter and get organized this year if it kills me, or my husband, which ever comes first ;-)
As you know, my husband and I live as caretakers in a museum, so we have an apartment as well as a laundry room and a storage room, also known as "Joe's Room."
We decided to tackle these two rooms first and we were able to accomplish everything we set out to do in one day!
These are photos of the laundry room after out cleaning/purging spree, I forgot to take before pictures, but trust me, it looks soooo.... good compared to how it looked before.
This is my nicely organized laundry detergent. See all of those Purex detergents, all FREE!!!
This little cub board I purchased several years ago, and it has held everything from scrapbook supplies to stationary. It now holds my extra dryer balls, all of my FREE dryer sheets, and my $ store Oxy clean. And of course, the glass wash board is for decor only -- I thought it looked super cute in there!
These are my 'using right now' laundry supplies. This way I have everything I need right at my finger tips.
This is a view of the whole laundry room looking in from the door. And, yes, I do know that the light is taken down and not neatly where it belongs, we are still in the process of finding a replacement. I'm not even sure they make this kind anymore. But then again, we do live in a museum...
