Dat laundry flow

Because I've got my eyes straight up, all up on that prize, I just revamped my laundry flow.

You're on the edge of your seat, I'm sure.

We want to start working towards the girls handling their laundry soonish so in an effort to do that AND because it just made sense, I decided to put us on group laundry rotation. Up until now I had just been doing all the laundry 3x a week, but this led to a big pile for everyone to put away those days and a lot more sorting for me. Now our schedule is as follows:

Monday/Thursday: Girls
Tuesday/Friday: Boys and misc laundry room shiz
Wednesday/Saturday: us

I realize this gives me more laundry days overall but the amounts are much more manageable (maybe only a load a day compared to the 3 or more that I had been doing). I also was needing to come to grips with the fact that I needed a laundry day over the weekend and, as much as I hate laundrying on weekends in general, our grown-up clothes are so much more appealing to wash on a Saturday than my kid's. No offense, kids.

On the days that we are home, or if afternoons are chill, I am having the girls manage their wash. They can pop it in before school in the morning, I can switch it out midday, then they fold and put away in the afternoon. Not only is this THE BOMB, but I'm hoping to God it inspires them to wear only 1 measly outfit a day and stop stuffing clean things into the hamper when they "clean up." So help me, baby J.

Anyway, is this post a SNOOZE or is it a snooze??

The most exciting thing of all is that I got a new washing machine and it comes on Friday. My current machine is from 1972 and while it works like a horse and is cute, it doesn't give two shits about stains. When Kirby told me to just go ahead and get a new one I actually cried. And then I went and bought the biggest, most gigantic machine I could squeeze into our laundry room. And I can't wait. (***the things that make me happy cry w/ 7 kids LOLOLLLLLL***)

It's so big I could probably stuff 4 children inside of it. Don't worry, I won't.

Another revamp I'm trying to get at is a little folding table set up with a basket for each family member underneath. I'm thinking maybe a situation like this?? So that I can fold > place in bin > that's it. Love this industrial hamper, too. I currently have one similar to this but in the XXL version which is... a lot. Also, how cute are these?? (So much cheaper than the West Elm version). What to do... what to do...

ANYWAY THAT'S THE STORY OF MY LAUNDRY. I'll keep you posted bc I'm sure you can't wait.

    1. THIS IS NOT A JOKE. TRUST GREAT DR KUMAR. My names are Gina Tom from United States. Great Dr Kumar is really powerful and knows how to do his job perfectly. If not for him i could not imagine what would have happened. My ex was always picking up an argument with me and was always beating me. He started acting strange and funny and left me for no cause for another girl. I thought all hope was gone. I searched for help on the internet and i came across Great Dr Kumar. I saw so many testimonies about him. I was delighted and i contacted him on his email and told him what was going on. He laughed and assured me to calm down that he will help me and that my ex will come back begging me. He did his work and cast the spell for me and in 3 days time, my ex came apologizing just as he told me. Today we both live together and we are even more in love than how we use to be before he left.

  2. I have 6 kids ages 10 and under (plus 1 more due in a month, yay!). And I love posts about practical things like how to deal with laundry without losing your everloving mind. :)

    I sort the kids clothes as they come out of the dryey. Immediately tossing them into the basket of the person they belong to. No folding. I make the older three fold and put away their own clothes on their "clean laundry day" (boys on even days of the month, girls on odd) and I help the younger three fold and put away their own clothes. The key to making all the baskets of clothes fit on my sorting table is to find square baskets. I found some really great ones at Walmart actually. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mainstays-Flex-Square-Basket-White/37645733
    They are just the right size. not too big for kids to carry, not too small. rectangular so they don't waste space. Love them.

  3. Definitely need a better system. Yours seems doable.. I do all of it in two days. Wash all on Monday. Fold/put away / cry. Etc on Tuesdays. It's getting to be too much but as of now I don't sort light and dark. So bad. Don't tell my mom..

  4. If you decide to go the seagrass basket route, check out Homegoods. I have some just like that (from there) in a couple of different sizes. I got them for cheap, cheap, cheap. (I love Homegoods.)

  5. I'm so jealous of your washing machine. #thingsmomssay

    No, but really. I've been researching because Kevin does all the washing/drying/folding of the laundry in this house (praise hands) and I think he deserves the equivalent of power tools to do it. We've had the same washer for a dozen years and had to replace the dryer 3x in the last year (used, obviously) and this 4th one needs replacing too. Wahhhh. Anyway, what did you buy?!?!

    Also, SYSTEMS. Systems are amazing. I really like the ideas you have and the comment above about the baskets. Love.

  6. I just do laundry for myself BUT I have a gross, dirty job and an oldish washer ...Persil gets out any stain and smells so good! BEST detergent I've ever used!

  7. We assigned laundry baskets and it's been LIFE CHANGING!!!! I just bought cheap sticker letters and put their names on it. I;ve thought about having my boys do their own laundry but since they are boys I have an awful feeling they would just wear dirty clothes all the time ;)

  9. We had our own laundry baskets growing up, and it sorta turned out laundry room into a closet. Just a fair warning. Mom probably could have just gotten rid of all the other clothes in our closets, lolz. Currently I don't have a laundry room so sadly I cannot employ systems and tables! Good luck!!!

  14. After being in relationship with markiss for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: drosemudiamenspellhome@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. I CAN NEVER STOP TALKING ABOUT HIM, HIS EMAIL ADDRESS IS: drosemudiamenspellhome@gmail.com CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEM
