Not long ago, I did up a couple blogs on our current laundry routine and was interested to hear how others did theirs. I had a couple friends reach out to me to share theirs. Perhaps you will find them helpful as well!
From Samantha, a mom of one little boy:
Under normal circumstances we both work full time outside of the home, and often spend every second weekend or so with our extended family on the South Shore.
Laundry can be one of the most difficult tasks I find! So I created a schedule to follow:
Mondays-Linens and Household
Wednesdays- Mommy’s stuff
Fridays-Catch Up load. Whatever clothing needs to be washed gets thrown in the washer.
Every 2nd Saturday-Bed Sheets & Outdoor clothes
I put a load in every morning at 5:30, and hang it to dry before we leave the house at 7:10. Often it’s ready to be folded that evening before bed!
From Christa, a mom of five:
I make a killer natural homemade laundry soap. I run 2 washers and 2 gas dryers….4 loads every day. I use clothes line as much as possible! I fold all clothes because I am picky. I put into piles on my 14’ dining room table, then all kiddos divide and conquer the delivering to rooms and bathrooms! I take Sundays off!! I also only separate two times. One is towels and underwear washed in hot water. All other clothes get washed together!

Your laundry routine is probably going to look different, but hopefully looking at these examples will give you a good place to start. And if your wardrobe needs a total rehaul and you have a hard time knowing where to start, you may enjoy my Simple Capsule Wardrobe Guide. Some recent feedback on it: “Ahhh Kelly! That was brilliant! I’m going to do some sorting this weekend, more purging, and most importantly writing down what I have vs what I need. Thank you!!!” Want to know more about how I fine tuned my whole wardrobe and follow along the simple steps? You may like my Simple Capsule Wardrobe Guide ebook (new and updated). You can find that guide here.

Hi, I’m Kelly! I’m a mother of four children - three boys, one toddler girl - and our family lives on the beautiful east coast of Canada. I’m a past elementary teacher, turned stay at home, work at home mom eight years ago after I had my second child. I’ve found that the busier I’ve become and as my children age, that it’s become even more important to figure out what is most important to me and us as a family. Living a simpler lifestyle has helped us in so many ways in our home life - from better routines to faster tidying up times. It has been through my children that I have been inspired to learn how to effectively manage my time and to simplify in all areas of my home and life. I enjoy helping busy moms simplify home life by teaching flexible planning methods and skills. Enjoyed this blog and think it would be helpful to others? I'd love if you shared it. Thank you!
