Laundry can be a evil thing and can overwhelm a person quickly. It has me.
I decided to break down my laundry into days, vs, all in one day.
I thought I would share why I choose to do laundry everyday.
Wednesday = dark
Saturday's = sheets and towels
I do it this way because it seems like I am Keeping up with it and I do not have 10 loads of Laundry to do.
Tuesday and Thursday's = my clothes
I also break the loads up white and darks
Ryan does his own clothes on Sundays and that helps keep down the Mountain of clothes that may pile up.
The schedule I posted above could vary. I could have no laundry on Monday because I caught up on Saturday, but most of the time there is a load to be done. If we have a busy week it may not get finished on the day it is suppose to. Don't sweat it, it will get done eventually.
I try to keep sunday laundry free. I prefer to not spend my last day of the weekend with laundry.
Get the kids involved! My kids put their clothes away, even my 4 year old. Now, it may not be perfect, but it's finished and one less thing I have to worry about.
This schedule is what works best for me and keeps me caught up, but doing a load every week may be the best for you or the only solution.
A little tip for all those working moms like me, is I put a load in before I go to bed and set the time for 4/5 am (if that is an option for you) and then I will put in the dryer when I get up and fold in the evening.
I know laundry is the worst thing ever to do, but we need clean clothes right? Hopefully you find a system that works best for you. I would love to hear about it.
