It’s Monday coming off of a crazy (like stuff going on every day) school week…and there are mounds of laundry to be done. Usually I try to do a load a day, but we haven’t been home much lately, so today is a major catch up day.
I have tried all kinds of systems to streamline the process. Currently each person has their own laundry hamper in their room, which works out nicely for not having to sort everyone’s piles into individual rooms after folding.
Ideally all the clothes in the individual hampers end up back in the same room to be put away, maybe saving a little sorting time. However on days like today when there are easily 8 loads to do, I bring all of the clothes into to my laundry room (which is also the downstairs bathroom) and throw them into the bathtub. Two piles, lights and darks, and start Shouting or Resolving away. It will take me all day but its nice to get it all done and put away the same day. Although is has been know to sit in the laundry basket folded for a couple of days after too…Shhhh!
So really there is no magic laundry system as much as I wish there was a laundry fairy that would come to my house once a week! Dirty clothes will always be there. And just when you think you’ve caught up there is another pile on someone’s floor.
We would love to hear from you. Keep it real and tell us your favorite system for tackling your never ending laundry piles!
