Constantly having laundry piled around the house can be overwhelming and really drag you down. I want to share just a few tips that I know can really change things around your home and help you keep on top of that laundry!
#1 Reduce the Stash!
This is the number one cause of laundry clutter and piles; HAVING TOO MANY CLOTHES. A child really doesn't need more that 10 shirts and 4 pairs of pants, besides the special Sunday best and sport clothes ect. This is a two week supply and is really plenty.
I just had a client who struggles with laundry clutter say that her kids really don't have too many clothes and that they just got rid of a bunch. We counted. Each child had 40 to 50 shirts and she didn't even realize.
When there are fewer clothes, it isn't as easy for piles to build. When the drawer starts getting empty, you have to wash. When you put the clothes away, they fit easily into the drawers and closet. There is no over flow. There is no shoving to get things to fit. Nice, huh?
Just keep the clothes you love and the ones you actually wear. You DON'T need 10 kick around shirts to work at home or the yard in. Get rid of what you don't wear!
