Laundry Schedule

I have a laundry schedule.

Every person in our family has an assigned laundry day. Each family member has a laundry basket in their room. They keep all their dirties in there. On their scheduled laundry day, I remind them to bring the basket out to the laundry room. I wash and dry their clothes (and if I'm feeling especially energetic, I'll even fold them). Then I return the basket full of clean clothes to them and they put them away. After I've done the scheduled laundry, I throw in whatever else needs done (towels, sheets, rugs, wrestling gear, etc). Now, here is the payoff of my laundry room is closed on Sunday. CLOSED. What better motivator to keep myself on "schedule" than being able to take a whole day off! That's what works for me.

Cool idea! I think I'd rather do 1 load a day than spend 1 whole day doing laundry.

Wow, that's really cool. I don't think I could do this because we run out of clothes every few days. lol We would have to stock up on clothes more, I guess.
