Is your laundry room just a big pile of piles? Does laundry extend from the laundry room throughout your entire house? Have you ever bought clothes just to avoid doing the laundry for one more day? Has your laundry room become a dumping zone for linens and extra "stuff"?
The first thing you want to do is clear out that room and come up with some system for dealing with clothes that everyone in your household buys into. If everyone follows the system, things will run smoothly. A place for everything and everthing in its place. Placing a hamper in every bedroom and each bathroom is a good place to start. This makes it simple for each member of your family to put their laundry in a single source that is both convenient for them and for yourself. Young adults can get into the habit of doing their own laundry when it's not mixed up with the rest of the family's.
