There are three of us in our little family but only two of us wear clothes.
Well...other than Lucy in her occasional hoodie but that should not be a ton of laundry...right?
We have a ton of laundry. We each change clothes three times a day...I don't get it...either.
Work out clothes, out and about clothes, comfy relaxing at home clothes!!! And there is still dry cleaning.
My original system was a bin for every category...fine washable whites, fine washable darks, towels/ sheets, darks, lights, and kitchen towels.
Just a bit bin crazy...so much so that the bins...which were actually tall meshy basket like things were taking over an upstairs guest room. And I wouldn't do laundry until a bin was full and then it would take all day to wash, dry, fold, carry back upstairs, and finally put away! In addition to hanging all fine washables on hangers. Add to that the crazy fact that my washer turns everything inside out so I have to uninside out everything to hang. And even if I spent all day doing laundry it was still only one category!
Then...folding takes so long because when Lucy hears the dryer go off...she literally races me to the laundry room, waits for the dryer door to open, races me to the family room where I dump hot clean laundry on the floor. She claims it as hers until it's cool or the next batch is ready. I delicately pull out whatever I can to fold as she desperately hangs on to it. Until the next batch and we start all over again...
Anyway...a new system is now in place...everything in one bin...when it's full I do little loads...and I am done for a few days...love it!!!
So far it's working...I sort as I do it and everything is finished in one day...the only dissatisfied family member is LucyGrace...her hot piles of clothing are a teensie bit smaller.
Hopefully she'll get over it.
