Show Me Your Laundry Room

Getting Organized in Your Home and Homeschool:

 

Dear Friends,
The Laundry Room is a well-used room in my home. To make it easy to wash laundry and fold it, I try to keep it open and decluttered. I ask the boys to put away their laundry as they do it, but I do allow them to leave their church clothes hanging in the laundry room.

Laundry rooms come in all shapes and sizes. Some washers and dryers are tucked into a closet. Some are in an area that only has room for a stacking washer and dryer. Some of you have large laundry rooms. It does not matter how big or small it is, but it helps you if you keep it clutter-free.

When you have sick children, sometimes dirty laundry gets stacked up. A trip out of town can cause a back-up in the laundry room when you get home. A child cleaning his or her room can cause a back log of laundry.

What I have learned over the years whether I am doing my normal three loads of laundry per day or more, if I fold or hang the load and put it away, my overall laundry process goes more smoothly.

I remember how my life was when my children were little, and I just included them as much as I could in the process. I would sit in the floor with them and fold towels while they played with washcloths. When I folded regular clothes, I would have them stand with me in the laundry room and hand me clothes from the dryer.

If you have children who are age 10 or older, you can teach them how to do their laundry. Remember that many hands make light work. You do not have to live with mounds of laundry – clean or dirty.

Send me a picture of your laundry room at Tami@TamiFox.com.

Today’s Zone Mission is to sweep and mop or vacuum the Entryway and Dining Room.
