We all know laundry is a pain. It’s the last chore we want to do and the one that ALWAYS needs to be done.
And with kids in the house who wear something for five minutes then chuck it into the hamper, it seems like there is so much laundry, there must surely be people living in our house that we don’t know about.
If you’re like me, your laundry schedule usually looks something like this…
But I’m on a mission to tackle it before I lose my mind. Here are some suggestions:

1- Have a hamper in the laundry room that all family members add their dirty clothes to.
This can help alleviate the great expedition to pull dirty clothes from around the house… scouring the closet floor, under the bed, the bathroom floor, etc.
2- Have cubbies in the laundry room for each person’s clean laundry.
They brought their dirty clothes in, they can also take their clean clothes back out. Each person can be responsible for emptying their cubby weekly or bi-weekly. It’s like the saying, “they’ll eat when they get hungry”… they’ll come get their clothes when they need some.
3- Make the laundry room a pleasant place.
- Keep it organized
- Keep it clutter free
- Hang a cute sign
- Make it smell nice
4- Make A laundry schedule.
Whether you prefer to do laundry on the weekends or during the week or spread the process out over a few days… a schedule will help you and everyone else stay on track.
A customizable schedule like the one you see below will help your little family helpers know what day they need to have their dirty clothes in the laundry hamper and when they need to come back and pick up their clean clothes.

5- Stock up on the best detergent at a great price.
