Laundry schedule

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. 
 I separate the days into colors. I do the kids clothes on these days.
  Monday= white 
  Wednesday = dark
Friday's  lights
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.

I do laundry every day, just not quite with a schedule like that. With 5 of us, there's always laundry to do!
