Airing my clean laundry!

A nasty flu bug has been making its rounds in our house for the last week. It started with Taylor (and really hit her hard!!!) and then I got it on Sunday and am still recovering today. I wasn't well enough to go back to work or to leave the house but I managed to gather enough energy to get caught up on some laundry. (Desperately need to catch up!!) So, given I haven't been very productive in any other way, lately, I thought I'd show off pics of all my freshly folded laundry and my day's accomplishments!

The pile of clothes between the two baskets above is Taylor's "too small" pile. I keep a plastic bin in her closet and as I do laundry if an item is too small it goes into the bin in the closet, then I sort through the bin and see if there's anything I can recycle, or pass on to a friend or donate to charity.

All of the hangers in our closet are white plastic. I started buying white plastic hangers when I left home to go to university. I've only bought white ones since then and it makes my messy closet look a little less messy!

I am terrible at keeping up with laundry. My laundry room usually looks like a clothes bomb went off. I have no problem sorting, and throwing clothes in the washer, but they don't always get transferred to the dryer in a timely manner and they don't always get OUT of the dryer in a timely manner and they almost NEVER get folded and put away in a timely manner. Every once in a blue moon, I get all caught up and I swear I'm going to turn over a new leaf and keep the laundry under control. And then, I have another basket of laundry that needs to be washed, and then another and another...and you can imagine how it goes from there.

Sigh. Maybe this time will be different.

How do you feel about laundry? Do you keep it under control or is it total chaos at your house? What's your system for keeping it under control?
