My guest room often doubles as a laundry room. Generally it works out well — we rarely have guests and it’s right by the washer and dryer.
Actually, it was much worse than this. I took this photo a few loads of laundry ago!
It’s mostly my running clothes and other clothes that I line-dry. I hang them on the rack, on a rack behind the door, doorknobs, treadmill, etc …
And then I don’t put my clothes away before the next load of laundry, and the dry clothes start piling up.
But it’s hard to promptly put away your clothes when your drawers look like this:
This is my second dresser, dedicated to running clothes, t-shirts and pajamas. It was definitely time to clean out my drawers and pack away my summer clothes!
First I got rid of about a third of the t-shirts, clearing a little more space for my running clothes. (Winter clothes take up a lot more room!)
Then I dumped everything out of my main running-clothes drawer, packed away the out-of-season stuff, and shoved the in-season clothes in there somewhat neatly. It seems I still have too much stuff!
After all that was put away, my guest room is almost ready for guests!
