Putting away laundry is one of my most dreaded chores. To make things easier I decided to try doing a load or two per day. I know what you're thinking...wouldn't that make things worse since I have to put clothes away daily instead of weekly? That's what I thought at first. But so many other moms I respect were doing it, so I figured there was a reason and I should give it a try.
And...after having tried it for a couple of months I have to say it IS much better! I am way more motivated to put away a few stacks of clothes each day rather than 20+ piles once a week.
It does create one problem though...I can't keep sock pairs straight all the time. Especially those little socks that get stuck in pant legs. I end up with a consistent little pile of single socks waiting for their mates to get washed so they can be put away.
Then I saw this project and thought...that is what I NEED!
So this is my version. Just a white frame with some raffia covered wire, hot glued into the back. Add some white clothespins and it's all ready for my little pair-less socks.
And you know these other pictures with just three cute, itty bitty Reid socks were just for show. This is how it's really going to look most of the time. :)
