Five Minute Makeover: Laundry Room Shelf

I'm slowly re-organizing parts of my apartment. There's a multitude of reasons for this, including time management and appearance.

The first spot I thought I'd tackle was the shelf above my washer and dryer in the small laundry room I have. It had become quite a mess since I first moved in. It used to look neat, even with all of the cleaning bottles on it. It's easy to make it look neat, however, it's not as easy to keep it neat. I set out for a solution. The solution I came up with cost a grand total of $6 and five minutes of my time. It will save me a lot of time in the future as I can see everything and put everything back in its spot.

After much thought and random Pinterest browsing, I finally came up with a solution. I headed to Dollar Tree to purchase a certain basket I'd seen there before.  Unfortunately, they didn't have them at the Dollar Tree I went to. So, I had to look around and improvise. I finally came up with these purple baskets, which worked perfectly:

 
 
It took me $6 and five minutes to solve my laundry room organization problems. Each basket is themed, which means I only have to take down one or two baskets when I complete a task. Talk about a time saver when I don't have to search for my cleaning products! 
 
What needs organizing in your place? I've still got a list and a half of places to tackle this spring...
