New Laundry System

Have you ever noticed how quickly laundry can pile up? Especially if you have to carry it across the house to get it to the washer and dryer. Especially if you are pregnant and you have to carry it across the house to get it to the washer and dryer. Especially if you have two toddlers who need to help and you are pregnant (therefore afraid of tripping over them) and you have to carry it across the house to get it to the washer and dryer. Need I go on? Do you get the point that my laundry skills are in sore need of repair? This being said, you should also note that of allllll the household chores there are, I would rather spend the day doing laundry!

So, I entered this perpetual state of having to tell my husband where to find clean underwear and socks, because they were not in the obvious place. This routine went on for about three weeks before it occurred to me that there was a simple fix. Get a laundry hamper for the utility area. Four of them, actually. Whites, darks, colors, and linens.

So far, it is working out wonderfully. There is always an empty basket. Sort of. One that is void of dirty laundry, anyway. And this is what happens when the clothes are out...

Aw, poor baby. She has to go traipsing all over her house to get her clothes to the washer/dryer on the SAME FLOOR. Not feeling much sympathy, my friend. But your system is cute, although I think you may have mice in your baskets.
