Buchanan laundry roomIs your laundry room a chaotic mess? Does it make you want to run and hide from your family’s laundry? Here are some ideas and tips to help you tackle your mess of a laundry room and keep it organized!

1.    Organize alike items!

Organize similar items to help limit over-buying and signal when items are running low. Doing so also aids in keeping items in one place so you always know where it is. Cubbies, bins or baskets can serve as organization tools to hold alike items. Similar items can be grouped together by cleaning supplies, rags and towels and detergent and dryer sheets. Laundry itself can be divided into baskets such as lights, darks and others.

2.    Create zones!

Create set up zones to keep specific areas for a chore. Specify the laundry zone, ironing zone, mudroom zone, cleaning zone and utility zone. Each zone aids in keeping things organized and clean in the laundry room. Zones should be equipped with baskets and proper labeling for laundry items such as detergent, dryer sheets, bleach and more. Each zone should be in a convenient and easy to access area. Read More→

USDA Financing Available You are probably sick of hearing it, but record low interest rates continue to abound. According to many sources, they may not last a whole lot longer. For those who are just entering the home market or starting to think about their first purchase, this can be a serious dilemma.  Save up 20 percent for the down payment and risk that interest rates rise dramatically or take a lesser home in order to take advantage of the most affordable financing rates in years?

What if you didn’t have to take either risk?  Wouldn’t you prefer to live in the house you really want, but without having to wait to save up your 20 percent down payment?  Read More→
