Laundry is a big chore in my house as I’m sure it is in yours. Five people, plus cloth diapers, leads to almost daily laundry loads. I would like to say that I have a system but I really don’t.
I do try to get my older boy’s clothes done over the weekend. They have certain uniform type clothes they have to wear for school and if I didn’t wash them once a week they wouldn’t get through the next.
As for the rest? When the laundry basket gets full in that room I know it’s time for another load. Or when the diapers have run out, or even worse, start to smell.
I think it would help if I had some more space! My laundry “closet” is in my kitchen and there is no room to hang anything so it all overflows out the door. My poor family is usually jumping over laundry baskets or dodging piles.
I have trained my boys to fold the towels which is a big help! This is the help that P’Diddy gives me.
He takes the clothes out of the basket for me. Even when I’m not ready of course. You will see his favorite toy…the remote control right there with him!
What is your laundry situation like? Do you have good helpers too?
