I’m hoping we can have a little meeting of the minds today. With the arrival of the twins quickly approaching, I’m feeling the need to bring some organization into our house—fast. One area that could use some improvement is our laundry situation. This is how thrilled I currently feel about the whole process:
It’s tedious, spanning over several days and by the time I’m finished, it’s time to start again.

I confess I’m not a laundry sorter. I don’t sort by color, I don’t sort by kid. It’s all thrown together, which makes the folding process a chore in itself. Little white socks are my worst enemy. With five kids, I’m wondering if each one should have his/her own basket, and then I wash just that kid’s clothes when individual basket is full. . .
I also don’t have a designated laundry day. It’s more like survival mode. When you’re out of underwear, momma washes your underwear. (Although I’m looking for good advice, please tell me I’m not alone!)
I’m lucky to have good storage in our laundry room, but I’m definitely not taking advantage of it. Reorganizing those cabinets is also on the “to-do” list.
Alright, those are my laundry confessions. Feel free to share yours, or any great tips you have for becoming a more efficient “laundress.” I would be especially interested to hear from those of you with multiple children if you’ve got this all figured out. . .
