Mindy and Billy's Laundry Room, After
After moving mountains of laundry, Peter sets up an organized laundry room with a simple system. "Imagine your laundry room's a factory," he says. 

There's now easy access to the washer and dryer, a clear folding table and three hampers. "Two for colors, one for whites," Peter says. "When you decide to wash, straight here to the washing machine. Straight here to the dryer. When things are dry, straight out here onto your folding table. You fold. You throw it in [a basket] to go upstairs. "

Mindy loves her new laundry room. "As much as you could enjoy doing laundry, I do," she says. "It's just so much more efficient, and it's just not overwhelming anymore."
