One of the biggest keys to an organized laundry room (and a smoothly running household) is implementing a weekly laundry schedule...and sticking to it!
Start by listing out the number of loads of laundry you do each week. For example:
Next, assign each load a specific day. The above example may work for a family of 3 but a family of 7 may have 14 loads a week. In this case, assign each load a specific day giving each day a 'Morning' load and an 'Evening' load. The above example may look like this:
I 100% believe that it is easier to spread laundry out over the week as opposed to having a "laundry day".
Let's say your laundry day is Saturday but the kids have a sports tournament on Saturday; your laundry day gets pushed off to Sunday. Say you have church, a family lunch, and a birthday party to attend on Sunday; your laundry day gets pushed off to Monday. You get to Monday and you have work and school and every other household responsibility to handle and laundry day can't be fit in. Next thing you know, no one in the family has any clean clothes and you're all drying off with beach towels. I'm not saying that has ever happened to me, but...anyway.
If you stick to a weekly laundry schedule, that Saturday sports tournament simply means you do all the bedding on Sunday. No big deal. And you are right back on track Monday morning.
Try it out and let me know if you've become a believer!
I love a cleaning schedule. Well, I love any schedule. From time to time I like to switch my schedules up a bit. You know, just to add a little excitement to my life. Here is one of the weekly cleaning schedules I like to use from time to time, especially on busy weeks. Instead of cleaning based on the room, I clean based on the type of cleaning product. I just grab one product and clean everything I can in the house with that one product. The next day I grab a different one. And repeat.
