Oh how to manage LAUNDRY? My least favorite task is this never ending chore. I’d rather mow the grass or shovel snow. At least that stays done for a while. Every time I turn around I find a dirty sock or a shirt that is shed when some one is hot.
Kids = Laundry
I don’t like having a bad attitude about this chore but how to make it more joyful? How to turn a chore in to a blessing? I do love having clean laundry when I need it but how to not feel like it is a heavy burden? I needed a plan.
A very wise friend shared with me over a year ago how she keeps ahead of the accumulating loads. She has 8 kids, so she should know right?
Each child gets a day to do their laundry & at their house one other load—whites. She only buys white towels by the way.
We’ve arranged it a bit differently but it works for our family.
Monday—Mom & Dad
Wednesday—Joshua—yep my 8 year old does his own laundry
Friday—Mom & Dad
Weekends? Michael brings his home some or we don’t do any.
The kids share the whites/towels/sheets on Wed & Friday. It is part of the chores that they do.
I love knowing when they leave the house they will be able to handle their laundry. When I couldn’t do the stairs they girls did my laundry as well & handled it wonderfully!
It is awesome to not have the entire responsibility of the family laundry on me. I don’t refer to the basement as the dungeon quite so often now!
So that is how we roll with the laundry here.
How do you do get it all done?
