5 Ways To Be More Organized With Your Laundry

Life always seems to find a way to be hectic. Doesn’t matter if you’re working from home, an essential worker, or wrangling your kids night and day — we can all use a little more organization in our lives. 

That’s why we wanted to take some time this month and talk about laundry organization. With the right scheme, you can easily turn laundry into a fun, quick activity that doesn’t take up a lot of your time or effort. All you’ll have to do is grab the right stuff and head to the laundromat!

So to make your life a little easier, here are five tips you can use to re-organize your laundry:

#1: Pin Your Socks

Tired of losing socks? Us too! That’s why you can start re-organizing with a simple trick: grab some clothespins and immediately pin your socks together when they’re not on your feet. It’s a simple trick, but you’ll find you lose fewer socks in the long run. 

#2: Sort On The Go

Every laundry blog ever (us included) has sung the virtues of sorting your clothes before washing them, but it’s easy to skip this step when you’re busy or stressed. That’s why creating a system for yourself to sort instantly is such a good organizational tactic. Grab a few hampers, label them “lights”, “darks”, and “linens”, and then toss your dirty clothes in the right basket. Instant win. 

#3: Use Labels In General

Families with lots of kids know the hassle of mixing up everyone’s clothes, which is why labels are so vital to keeping laundry organized. Give everyone their own mesh bag or hamper, and be sure to write names on clothing tags when you can. Just don’t block the care instructions!

#4: Get A Clothes Line

Hand washing delicate clothes at home is necessary sometimes, and often the trickiest part isn’t the washing — it’s the drying! A simple clothing line can fix this though, especially if you have a balcony, patio, or a big window that draws a nice breeze. You can keep your wet clothes off the banisters, prevent wrinkles, and get fresh, dry clothes easily. 

#5: Plan Your Laundromat Visits

If you have a neighborhood laundromat that you go to, it’s worth giving some thought to developing a regular, scheduled time for laundry that fits into your life. It’s far too easy to find yourself out of clothes and running to the laundromat, and a schedule (usually weekly, maybe bi-weekly) can help you circumvent the mad dash and keep things on track. 

Conclusion

Your level of organization with laundry can help you keep life on track and hopefully find some calm in the midst of all the craziness of your life. If these tips helped, we’d love to hear from you — or you can share some of your favorites with us!
