It’s Monday and we all need a little Motivation to get the laundry we put off this weekend, done quickly for the week.  If we don’t, next weekend is going to be a sentence to the laundry room!  That might not be so bad if we had a laundry room like the one above featured on an HGTV episode.  But wait…we’ve got a laundry room for “real” people!
