Your Brilliant Laundry Ideas & Our Progress

Post may contain affiliate links, read Coupon Katie disclosure policy here.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for all the laundry tips and encouragement you shared.  Seriously, with five kids, laundry is a whole THING.

At the suggestion of a few people I ordered these little babies:

SimpleHouseware Mesh Pop-Up Laundry Hamper Basket With Side Pocket. Four of them.

Each boy has one next to their bed or in their bathroom.   I wash clothes one basket at a time, so one kid at a time.  Colors and whites together, on cold.  Simplicity was the goal here friends.

It So much faster and less chaotic.  There is no sorting. There are not 27 piles of clothes that are loaded into a basket and carried down stairs only to be rifled through and need folding and sorting again.

I have not gotten fancy and assigned a day to each child. They just bring their baskets when I ask. When they see their basket at the top of the stairs full of folded clothes they take them downstairs and but them away. I have no idea why I didn’t do this earlier.

I love the idea of the older kiddos doing their own laundry but we’re not quite there yet. Baby steps.  🙂

My next goal is to start organizing all my closets. I cannot handle how crazy some of them are. So, bathroom closet, laundry room shelf, toy closet organization ideas are welcome right now. And, before anyone asks, no I am most definitely not nesting. 🙂  With how busy life is I am just feeling the need to clear out clutter and streamline our home.
