With five people in our family, there is no shortage of laundry. It's time consuming and never ending.
I know I post a lot of pretty pictures with my house looking all neat and tidy. Now, don't let me lead
you wrong, I am a very neat and tidy person, but seriously, my house doesn't look like that all the time.
This is what it looks like on a normal afternoon.
In an attempt to make my life easier, I once went so far as to hide a ton of my four year old's clothes so he wouldn't change his outfit four times a day. Worked like a charm until he found them in my closet.
I do laundry just about every day and usually more than one load a day. I put it in the washer, put it the dryer and then throw it on our bed, wait for my husband to fold it and then I put it away. Works out well for us. Since there's nothing too exciting about our laundry room (no great before and after pictures),
I might as well show you.
Here is the lone sock graveyard. Underneath this bulletin board is an ugly electric panel. I couldn't come up with anything else to cover it up with, so why not display our single socks. I swear my dryer eats socks. These things have been hanging here for a long time and the mates just never seem to appear. I'm sure I am the only one this happens to, right?
The best part about our laundry room is the location. It's not a huge room with tons of space and storage, but it's located right off the master bathroom with another door leading to the 2nd floor landing. It's easily accessible to everyone in the family. In our previous house, we moved the laundry room from the basement to the 2nd floor. When we were house hunting, another 2nd floor laundry room was always at the top of our "Wish List". During the renovations of our current house, we were able to squeeze the laundry room into the new master suite.
So there you go, now I've aired all my
dirty clean, but unfolded laundry for you.
Feel like you know me a little better? How about you, does laundry seem to consume you?
