Week 20 of the Weekly Organization Challenge

This is week 20 of The Good Wife's Weekly Organization Challenge! This week focused on laundry baskets and hampers. I grouped this under the laundry room but in actuality we don't keep hampers in the laundry room. We keep them in the master bedroom closet. 

And there is a legitimate reason for this.

If we kept the hampers anywhere other than the bedroom and maybe the bathroom, clothes would never actually make it into the hampers. They would gather on the floor until laundry day and we would look like a house auditioning for Hoarders: Buried Alive.

Like I have said before, you have to work with your natural habits. No one in our family would take their clothes off, walk into the hallway, open the laundry room door and place their clothes in the hampers. No one. And to try and force us to do it would just result in someone screaming at 8:30 on a Tuesday night, "Sweet fucking, 8 pound, 4 ounce little baby Jesus, lying in his manger, can't you pick up your damn clothes?!?"

Not good.

But I do think hamper systems like this one I saw on Pinterest, is a good idea. I even think if we had something like this in the bathroom or bedroom, we would put our clothes in it all the time.

But for now, we just have the hampers on the floor in the closet. When we re-do the bedroom closet, we might update our system then but for now, this is what it is.

I am working on perfecting our family's laundry system. With such a large household we have to get it down to a bit more of a science. Laundry also ties in with green cleaning. The more I streamline it the less resources we use
