I’ve talked a bit about our laundry system before, but I’ve never really fully described the whole cycle (pun intended) for you and thought I’d take a moment to explain how we handle laundry baskets around here.
Next to my washer and dryer is a 3-tiered shelf. On each level sits a laundry basket. The top level is the basket I share with my husband. It is the largest (for several reasons I’ll explain in a moment). The second level is the basket that goes to the Boy’s Room and the 3rd level is the basket that goes to the Girl’s Room. We labeled the bottom of each basket with the initials of each child who’s clothes go in that basket (and Emily’s “E” is still there).
Labeling this way is particularly helpful if you don’t have a designated boys and girls room.
