Laundry, Laundry, Laundry

it never ends! Laundry and I have always had a love hate relationship, I love to have nice clean clothes and I don't mind putting them in the wash and then into the dryer, the hate part comes in when they are done drying and the clothes need to be folded and put away. I can never seem to stay on top of the folding a putting away of the clothes. My old plan to tackle the laundry was to wash every time the laundry basket was full. I would also do every ones laundry together, sorted into colors, of course. I was doing laundry everyday and still having trouble getting it done in a timely manner. So, I have come up with a schedule that I think will help me stay on top of everything.

Monday: McKay and Bryce's
Tuesday: Carson and Randy's
Wednesday: Mine and towels
Thursday: Boys Sheets
Friday: Our Sheets
Saturday and Sunday: NO LAUNDRY! YEAH!

I am also going to wash each persons clothes separately so I don't have to spend so much time sorting everyone's clothes while I am folding. And because I am doing everyone's clothes separately I can fold the clothes right in their room and put them away right then and there.

I think this plan is going to be very effective and help me stay on top of my never ending laundry. I will let you know how it goes.


  1. Wow! I'm very impressed! Think it's going to be a timesaver in the long run with the schedule you have come up with.

  2. I see the beginning of a stay at home mom (AKA Domestic Goddess) Book deal!!!
