HOWARDS ORGANISING PHILOSOPHY
WHERE DO I START?
Following the Howards STOP, SORT, SOLVE process can make any organising project easy.
GROUPS OF ITEMS TO BE STORED & “WORKFLOW FUNCTIONS” to MAKE YOUR WASHING EASIER
Laundry’s come in many shapes and sizes. At heart, they all perform the function of “the place you wash your clothes”.
However, you may want your laundry to store more than your washing machine.
With a little clever planning, try to also include:
- Pre-sorting station (for your colours and whites)
- Folding station (next to the drying machine)
- Distribution station (baskets with labels)
- Cleaning zone (up high away from children)
- Drip Drying zone (over the washing tub)
- Mending station (hanging behind the door)
- Ironing station (including storage for your iron and ironing board)
- Storage for your vacuum cleaner, mops, brooms
When designing your system, think about the items you need to access most frequently and creating a workflow that is efficient on your effort and time.
