So we are a large family and we are about to be even bigger in a few months (no references to my size Caleb) I need some help from moms of many or even just organized moms on how they accomplish laundry.
My current system of “hope I got some underwear in there for everyone.” is just not cutting it. My bigs know how to do laundry and I have been having them do their own but they forget, or the day is full of activities and we aren’t home to get any done etc. So that hasn’t really been great, except for the fact that when I find their clothes tossed on the floor I don’t take offense because I wasn’t the one that washed and dried the clothes.
I welcome any and all ideas on this matter….my husband will forever be in your debt if you can help me find something that works.
The next thing on my list is how to move from complete and total chaos to our day to a flexible routine. I have a 3yo that would benefit greatly and I want to enjoy my day and not feel like all we ever do is clean. We need to do more with our unschooling pursuits and it just isn’t happening because I start everyday in the negative. I have tried to ignore the messes and to some extent I can, but we are in a small space and I feel closed in if all the small spaces are cluttered. I have tried FlyLady and would try again except I can’t keep up with all the emails.
Do you do this by the week, month, day, not at all? I need to have a plan in place so we avoid eating out when we shouldn’t or quick $30 trips to the grocery store. I get an organic produce share every Tuesday and I need to incorporate what I will be getting each week so that it doesn’t go to waste.
Bottom line is
I NEED HELP BECAUSE I AM STRESSING ABOUT ADDING ANOTHER INTO THIS CHAOS!
