So how do you all deal with laundry?
Well, I do have to tell them to do it (as in, "You have been in that shirt for two days.
My older kids all put away their own laundry (7,9,10,almost 12) and the 7 and 9 year olds are responsible for loading the dirty laundry into the washer when the basket gets full.
ha ha ... no i use my ancient machines and just go to town.
oh i wish i was one of those that had 3 sets, but i have 1 set of circa 1997 kitchenaids!!!
Lets see ~ I try to do at least 2 loads of laundry a day. My three oldest kiddos each have thier own baskets. My 16 year old does his own laundry from start to finish. I wash and dry the laundry for my 13 and 11 year olds, they are responsible for hanging and folding and putting away their own clothes. I wash dry fold and put away my 3 year old, DH and my own clothes. Though my 3 year old does help fold towels and washrags. :)
I have found that each of the older children having their own baskets has been a real time saver when it comes to sorting clothes and them being put away.
I was 1 of 6, and we always helped do the laundry.
I have certain days for certain things, and do laundry pretty much every day.
Monday is sheets; Tuesday is bathroom laundry; Wednesday is kitchen laundry; Friday is HS's laundry and DH's work clothes; and several times a week I wash the diapers, the little boys' clothes, and my and DH's everyday clothes, but that's on an as-needed basis.
