How often do you do laundry and how many loads do you do at a time?
Do you separate colours, or divide by person, or are you a 'stuff it till it's full' kinda gal?
I am thinking of adopting the FLYlady's a load a day schedule, especially with cloth diapers (once every 3 days) and so much baby laundry!
I used to do a few loads one day every couple of weeks... but I think my plan of attack is changing! I used to separate colours, but since baby's been here, I just throw all the 'adult' clothes in 1 load and baby clothes in another.
Thankfully I have a big front load, that helps a lot.
I think I do about 12-15 loads a week. I do 6 loads on monday, and then I do about a load every day, that I hang to dry in my furnace room, jeans, dh's work clothes, just the stuff that I hate to put in the dryer because it takes so long.
It's great when the weather is nice, I hang a lot of laundry outside, and actually get all caught up.
I'm pretty particular with my laundry, I seperate the like colors. Also, on monday I fold and put away that day, otherwise it hangs over my couch until thursday.
Cam's clothes probably twice a week on random evenings whenever his basket is about half full.
Then weekends...one white load, one load of shirts, one load of pants, and then either a towel load or a sheet load (alternating weeks).
So total 5-6. I have it REALLY good!
When we were cloth diapering, add 2 more loads in there
I don't sort colours either, I do ours and the kids seperately, then towels, diapers, and bedding.
I wash diapers every second day, so 3-4 loads/week.
At least 3 loads of kids clothes.
At least 2 loads of ours.
DH's work clothes.
Bedding (works out to about 3 loads/week because I wash every second week on a rotating schedule)
So at least 13-14 loads/week, and that's if we haven't had any huge messes
