Tackle It Tuesday — Loads and Loads of Laundry

by Susan

SusanI remember when I was in my early twenties and I lived alone.

One evening as I tossed a load of laundry into the washing machine and then settled down on my Ikea couch with a frozen dinner and an episode of Ally McBeal, I thought to myself, laundry is such an easy task… why does everyone complain about it? You get to watch TV and feel like you’re doing chores.

laundryOhhhh, such a looooooong time ago.

The laundry of a single girl (whose work clothes go to the dry cleaners) is such a different task than the laundry of a family with preschoolers who generate wildly dirty, massive piles of laundry.

I loathe laundry now. It piles up and takes over my home. I walk by and feel defeated and the stains mock me.

Eventually we run out of socks and I have no choice. I must tackle laundry.

So what have you been tackling?

Tell me what you’re up to with all your other tackles… housework and otherwise… add your link to your tackle in the Mck Linky below!

Each week on Tuesday, we are posting before and after pictures of a project or trouble area that we tackled this week.

Find out more about Tackle It Tuesday here.
The project can be little or big – whatever you want.

Basically, Tackle It Tuesday is about giving ourselves incentive, deadlines and satisfaction in getting our household tasks done.

(It doesn’t even have to be housework… just whatever is on your To Do list.)

If you tackled a project this week, just add a comment and add your link below.

Happy tackling ladies…

Oh tell me about it. With a family of six it’s on the verge of ridiculous. But, then again it was way worse when the twins were in their baby year.

We are tackling folding and ironing the washed clothes! I wonder at the example this sets on the younger ones whom we constantly tell to complete their chores on time!

Laundry is the worst! I hate it so much that I do a load or two everyday. It’s usually done by 9 a.m. and then, I don’t have to worry about it until the next day.

OmGOSH girl feeel you! Laundry is The Bane of My Existence. We have 6 kids and in some strange twist of irony they absolutely LOVE the thing I hate most. Mud. The dirty kind. I could use an entire bottle of Shout in 1 day.

I am beggining to see the other side of laundry I remember the early days without any little clothes and then the loads of laundry with 6 children and now that 2 of my 6 children have moved out and the laundry piles are starting to disappear slowly
