bombs away....

Turning the knob to open this door leads me to the scariest places in our house.  What's behind door number one you may ask...

..it is what I refer to as Mount Laundry.  This is the pit that all the dirty laundry lands in after it is tossed in from the floor above.

I have to admit, of all the things we did when we built our house, I think this is one of my favorites.  Even though I hate seeing the mound of laundry in this closet {I honestly don't even know how it gets so big so fast} I love that there is no dirty laundry anywhere else in the house. 

We built the closet in the laundry room so it makes it easy to sort, wash, dry and fold all in the same room.  On the down side... we do wish we would have made this room a little bigger since this is also the mudroom, but we could always change it in the future if we wanted to.

Before I end this post, I need to give a huge shout out to the things that actually do most of the work.  Without them the laundry would probably be spewing out the top of the laundry chute.

Thank you washer and dryer I truly do love you.  And you give me about five minutes to let my dirty laundry basket be empty {smile}.

Happy laundry day !!  {p.s. I can't help but think I'm going to open this door one day and see one of my boys sitting in this basket !! }

  1. Putting a laundry basket in a closet was one of the smartest things I ever did as well...it used to be everywhere!!! So jealous that you have a laundry chute though...mine only ends up in the baskets when I gather it up and put it there myself.
