When I got back to Baltimore after a long holiday visit with family, my bedroom greeted me with its disarray. The issue? Clothes everywhere.

I am only good about putting clean laundry away if I do it when the clothes are fresh out of the dryer; otherwise, they sit in the basket in my bedroom. My husband, who does his own laundry, completely avoids putting his clean clothes away entirely. So, as organization took a total back seat to the holidays this year, the clothes just never made it from the laundry basket to the dresser or closet—although some did make it to the floor.

While of course there’s another end to this organization game (i.e., putting things away once they’ve been worn), in 2014 I want to be more on top of getting things from dryer to drawers. For my bedroom’s sake, I’m committing to taking ten minutes whenever a laundry load finishes to put that stuff away—right away.
