Several months ago, I asked on my Facebook page what one thing my readers found extremely difficult about homemaking. Laundry made the top 3. Not surprising.
In a large family, laundry is mega-sized. The typical organization advice to do laundry once or twice a week, or even to do one load of laundry a day is laughable (and slightly maddening) to the large family mom. That’s why I put together this mega post on large family laundry solutions with systems I’ve used and systems other large family bloggers have written about on their blogs.
Time to tackle Mt. Washmore!
1. Teaching Your Kids to Do Their Own Laundry – This is the system we currently use. It keeps me from doing all the laundry by myself. In a large family, it isn’t ALL the kids doing their own laundry, but older children assigned to do certain “groups” of laundry. Read the post, it will make more sense. 😉
