Super Sorting!

Remember this massive pile of now-clean laundry in my living room???
I took it down!!!

I started by sorting it into piles.

I had one pile for each person in our family, plus one extra pile for
"linens etc", and one pile for socks and underwear.
It really didn't take very long. Maybe 15 minutes to sort the whole pile.

When I was done sorting, I put each pile in a laundry basket or
trash bag and labeled each accordingly.

Do you love how I have my pile of clothes is twice the size of every other pile? ;-)

So our laundry is still a big mess, however at least if you know who's clothes you're looking for you know which pile to go to. I'm working like mad to organize our closets and get our laundry put away for the Closet Powwow! Ahhhh!

Never in my adult life have I kept our clothes clean and put away. It's been a long journey to get this far with my laundry. I really hope I pull this off by the Closet Powwow!!!

*Reminder* March 5-8 We're having our Closet Powwow! I'll post a Mr. Linky so you can all show your closet posts off. Old or new, and feel free to post as many as you like! See you here then!

Wow - I'm amazed that you find clothes. I'm also glad to know that I'm not the only one who doesn't get the laundry put away.
