After the holidays, our closets have been bursting with fabulous gifts. I’ve spent the last few weeks catching up on laundry, cleaning out the closets, and reorganizing the laundry room.
There’s still a long way to go, but the shelves are looking better, the closets are a little roomier, and I have tons of things set aside for the next consignment sale.
When I sorted out the shelves in the laundry room, I ran across a few things that would probably seem out of place to most people. It makes perfect sense in my head, but the hubby doesn’t seem to understand why anyone would keep a piggy bank in there!
Here are 5 more items you may not expect to find in the laundry room:

Yeah, I know — you wouldn't think I'd need something that leaves permanent marks where I'm trying to remove stains. But, this is a quick way to label clothing tags, though, and to keep track of hand-me-downs. We label everything only with our last name, so we can pass things down through the girls. Something labeled "Sokol I" would belong to the oldest, adding an "I" each time it gets passed down.
