Organizing My Laundry

So by now you are probably sick of hearing about my laundry {if you are sick of it, you don't need to continue reading}!!!!!!  I know it is just laundry, but it seems to be such a huge issue {I have issues}.  Now that spring is here {I did hear the S in SNOW...not Spring in the weekend forecast} my kids seem to change clothes three times a day.  They wear their jeans in the morning, then switch to a tank top and shorts {they have asked to put on their swimsuits too} when they get home from school, and then they grab a hoodie toward evening when it starts to cool off.  Of course, all of that is dirty and they can't hang them up and wear them again {duh}.  Thus, my GINORMOUS mountain of laundry continues to grow at a faster pace than my washer and dryer {and I} can handle.  I can't tell you how many times I have climbed Mt. St. Laundry, but I am pretty sure I should have a medal for it.

Once again, I am trying to come up with a solution to my laundry issue.  I have the new hooks in the bathroom which have helped somewhat.  However, one of my girls would rather accessorize the hook with a fashionable belt, scarf, or handbag rather than the towel I intended them to be for.  I just yell at remind them to HANG up the towel.  My latest laundry helper is small baskets that the kids can take to their rooms and put the clothes AWAY {this is another issue}.

A is for Alivia.  Each kid gets their own basket with their initial one it.  This adds a "cool" factor for the kids and they seem to be excited about their "own" baskets.  I used a piece of cardboard that I cut into a square and then covered it with scrapbook paper.  Then I used a sharpie {I love sharpies} to write their initial on it and punched a hole in the corner.  Then I attached it with a piece of ribbon to the basket.

And when the baskets aren't in use {like that will ever happen} they still stack with the tags on them.
