FastTrack – Not Just for the Garage

So, here it is – our previously disorganized laundry room (a.k.a. utility closet, first floor storage facility, and dog room.)

One of the main issues with this room was that we couldn't use this really cool laundry chute.  If we used it, the clothes would drop onto this shelf and then drop into the middle of the floor.  The shelves are great, but the laundry chute was not usable with the shelves there.


Problem two – we had a ton of different things stored in here and there was no rhyme or reason as to what was stored where.  Dog food/treats/toys, cleaning supplies, laundry soaps, extra napkins and plastic utensils, citronella candles…you get the point.  The plan was to keep all of this in this room, but just get it organized.


Third issue – dish rags, dog towels, etc. always piled up on the dryer, waiting to be cleaned.  I wanted to have a place for these items to go before they went into the washing machine.

In order to get our laundry room organized, I thought that the FastTrack system could be a great option.  It was designed to work in the garage, but it seemed like such a versatile system, so why not try it in the laundry room?  I heard it was easy to use, quick to install, and that it actually worked.  So, I looked through the FastTrack product catalog, made a few measurements, received my products, and got started.  I also used a few Rubbermaid clear containers to help organize the shelves. 

So here it is – my newly organized laundry room.

We’ve organized the shelves with some clear Rubbermaid containers.


 We’ve made the laundry chute usable and eliminated the pile of clothes on the dryer.  I absolutely LOVE my hanging laundry basket!




We’ve also used FastTrack to organize all of our dog stuff and all of our extra paper plates, spoons, cups, etc.




The best part of this project was my husband’s comments and excitement throughout the installation process:  “I’m impressed. I’m a fan of products that work well."

This project went better than expected.  I'm looking forward to the next organization project!

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no back up.
    Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

    I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    The craft room sounds like a great place to try out FastTrack. If you decide to install it, let me know how it goes!

    Maybe this creative solution would work in my craft room!! I love the way you made it work for you! I live in an old farm house – which I wouldn’t trade for anything – but there are no closets! So, other than putting things in the basement – there is no storage.

    Very clever solution for catching the laundry, Shannon! I’ve always wanted one #jealous (even though I live on one floor 😉

    I’m so jealous that you have a laundry shoot – how fun!! It looks like the hanging basket works perfectly! Very creative use of the FastTrack system. I’m impressed.

    Very cool! Glad to see you’ve got a working system in that “catch all” room. Great ideas,…I might have to steal some.
