Person in a laundry basket at the laundromat.

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
Tuesdays-Kids Stuff
Wednesdays- Mommy’s stuff
Thursdays-Daddy’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!!!” If you’d like that guide, feel free to email me at and I can send that off to you.
