How to get the family laundry organised

August 1, 2018

How in the world does it seem that the laundry seems to duplicate itself overnight? What was one pile when you went to bed has somehow turned into two, with no signs of slowing down? What’s even worse is trying to figure out a system that actually works for everyone in your family to put their laundry someplace that states, “I’m dirty and need to be cleaned.”

Sorting at the source

Thankfully, one great solution to help cut down on the laundry clutter is to have laundry baskets in each and every room. Just by adding that one simple addition to all the bedrooms and bathrooms in the house, there is no excuse for anyone leaving clothes anywhere else! Put one in each child’s room, all the bathrooms, and even the mud room when you’re entering the home.

PLUS, not only will it stop people from dropping dirty clothes everywhere they go, but it will also help when sorting as well. Picking up the laundry basket in your son’s room where it’s all nice and neat also means that that load of laundry will be taken right back to that same room! 

Laundry Storage

Finding a way to afford laundry storage options isn’t always affordable or stylish. Luckily, there’s a company out that that understands how the real world operates! The Holding Company is an amazing online retailer that focuses on stylish and affordable storage products and home décor. They offer so many amazing products that could really fit in well with your style and your budget! Not only are they taking the laundry game by storm, they’re doing it in a way that adds some fun features to your home interiors.

Clothes Storage

The next time that you’re feeling as though you don’t really have a grasp on the laundry game in your own home, it’s time to switch things up a bit. We all know the definition of insanity, right? “Trying the same thing over and over again yet expecting a different result.” Don’t drive yourself mad because you feel like you don’t know what to do with the mounds and mounds of laundry. Instead, take the storage options into your own hands and organize each and every room.

And remember, you don’t have to handle this alone! You aren’t the only one in the house wearing all these clothes and getting them dirty! Enlist the help of your family and have them take part in this process as well. If they are an active part of picking out their own laundry basket to have in their room, then there’s a good chance that they’ll take more of an active interest in making certain to fill it full of their dirty clothes.

It’s always a good time to make laundry time a family event!
