My small laundry closet was not doing anything for me when it came to organizing and storing my toiletries and cleaning products. I needed some sort of way to give everything its own place and a better way for access with such little space. So I came up with a fairly cheap way to do just that.
First, I took inventory of what was in my laundry closet. Then I categorized everything. So I have spare towels, extra toilet paper, extra cleaning products, daily/weekly cleaning products and laundry products. Then I purchased canvas bins with front pocket labels and metal wire baskets to put them all in. I labeled all of the bins and baskets of what I put in each one. That way I know which bin or basket I need and it's easy to pull down.
Of course everyone's laundry room is going to be different but I have found that this was a perfect way to make things work. Plus, it gave a great look to everything. I kept with the same color scheme when I bought the bins and baskets. I think when it comes to organization in tight spaces keeping with the same or similar colors it gives a clean, fresh feeling and catches the eye. Watch Fred Meyers on their sales they usually offer 50% off their baskets and bins. Walmart has a good selection as well.
