Frugal Friday

Why do I have such a hard time coming up with Frugal Friday posts?!?! I do consider myself 'frugal'.. I guess it's just hard to come up with something 'new', something people haven't read before!!

This is what I came up with: Laundry hahaha sounds interesting right??

We have one hamper in the bathroom, all of the dirty clothes are supposed to make it there. I do find myself doing a quick check of the house before I start a load though!

By the washer and dryer I have this 'thing' I'm not sure what to call it.. Maybe a tri-hamper, or a laundry sorter. One bag is for whites, one is for towels, and the other is for 'clothes'.

On the other side of the washer is my 'laundry station' The hamper holds all of the dirty bedding and there is a shelf behind it that holds laundry detergent, fabric softener, bleach, stain remover, etc...

After everyone takes their baths at night I bring the hamper into the laundry area and sort it. Most of our clothes get hung up to dry so I usually do that load at night before bed so they can dry overnight. I used to hang clothes outside but our landlord decided to put COWS in the field behind us.. Needless to say, our clothes started smelling a little funky!!! Now I have an indoor retractable clothes line that is strung across the laundry area. I hang the clothes up at night with the hope that they will be dry in the morning and I can take the line down! Also, I wash all of our clothes in COLD so there is no need to sort by color.

First thing in the morning, I start another load of laundry, I usually wash which ever bag is fullest! I am pretty good at getting the clothes washed, now if only I could get folding and saving down!!!

  1. I have a hard time coming up with them too which is why I have not done any recently.

    I have been wanting one of those hampers as it would make life so much easier.
