Delegating the laundry

Last week I shared a couple ways I delegate the dishes around here. I also palm-off as many of the laundry tasks as possible. I've discussed this before, but here is another thing we've done to make things easier for those helping me out.

We label our sorting bins with color of laundry and washing instructions. With a little instruction, a child can sort the laundry and start a load. Ahhh! Freedom! We've had very few laundry tragedies, only a couple of debates on where to sort turquoise.

Even with our 15-20 loads per week, with help from the children, laundry is not an insurmountable task.
