Now that summer is ending and our lives are kicking back up into high gear, it always helps when every space, like the laundry room, is organized. Even with just the two of us, it seems as if we have way more laundry than just two people should.
So, I came up with a new system for organizing the (ahem)
dirty soiled clothes. (This is a first here on The 2 Seasons. We are literally airing our dirty laundry).
When Jordan and I first started blogging, I made four of these tags labeled whites, darks, pastels, and delicates to hang on the dirty clothes baskets that we use. They were cute, but they really didn’t work too well. They hung down too far, and it was hard for us to see.
Since we use four baskets for our dirty clothes and keep them in the laundry room, I decided to just paint the handles to color code the baskets. For instance, this one is for the whites.
I used this medium blue for the pastels.
And of course, the baskets for the darks received a black handle. I have a basket for my own delicates and didn’t paint that handle at all.
Even though this system is great for us two empty-nesters, it would be a great system to use with small children.
