MOM Tip - Dish Pan = Laundry Basket


MOM TIP : We moms wash, Dry and fold the laundry only then to have to put it all away. With 5 kids that mean a lot of trips from the laundry room to the kids bedrooms until I decided it was time to add this to their daily To Do (chore) list. First problem was I did not have room for 5 more laundry baskets in my laundry room so how would I divide up the laundry into their own organize piles that they could easily take to their rooms for the new chore of putting away their own clothes.

My solution was to purchase 5 dish tubs they fit perfectly on my counter and could only hold a few days worth of clothes which meant they would need to be sure to empty these out often. These are small enough that even little ones could handle carrying them to their bedrooms and are stackable when not in use.

Love your idea. Dish pan is perfect size for little kids. This is a good lesson for little ones to learn how everyone can help and do his share of work. Thanks!

Great idea. You should also let them try doing there own laundry with the wonder wash from laundry-alternative.com it fits a kids size oad of laundry and makes it more of a game than a chore.
