When we first moved into our house 8 years ago, we had one laundry basket and I sorted our laundry into piles in our master bedroom. And since I am the disciplined, on top of it person that I am, there were times when those piles would take up precious space in our room for *ahem* days at a time. Add a baby to the mix and I had a real laundry mess on my hands!
While shopping at Fred Meyer one day, I bought this little laundry sorter in desperation. It didn't look like much. In fact, I have to admit that it looked a little cheesy to me. All it consisted of was white PVC pipe and 3 white mesh laundry bags.
I had no idea that this laundry sorter would save my life. (Well, that might be a slight exaggeration. At least it saved the laundry aspect of my life.)
Now, as we throw laundry in the dirty clothes, we sort it. One quick glance at the laundry sorter shows me if I have a full load of laundry or not. (And in my home with 2 little kids, I almost always have at least one full load of laundry.) No more throwing dirty laundry all over my bedroom floor to get a handle on the laundry situation. At least twice a week I grab the laundry basket from my girls' room and sort it directly into our sorter and I am ready to go.
I am thankful that the laundry is organized. I am thankful that it is easy to see if I have a full load of laundry. I am so thankful for this cheap little laundry sorter!
What are you thankful for today?
Come join me (and my friends at Adventures Of Raising A Baby In The City )!
Ever y almost every Thursday, I will post something for which I am thankful, and I would love it if you participate as well. It is medicine for the soul to give thanks and, when practiced regularly, results in contentment. It can be anything: silly, personal, or blog related. Just take a moment to give thanks!
