Laundry Day! (Free Printables)

Happy Monday! Typically Monday is my Laundry Day around here. Actually, let me rephrase that…Monday is my STARTING Laundry Day. I usually finish it sometime the following Saturday afternoon at which point I have ONE WHOLE DAY before I have to start laundry again. I tend to lose momentum after about two loads.

These dang kids…they just KEEP getting dirty.

Anyhow we have a BIG laundry room in our new house and it’s right off the kitchen. That’s kind of a big deal for me because it means no more basement creepy crawlies to deal with while doing laundry (I may have abandoned a load or two in the in the past upon seeing a Camel Cricket lurking…do NOT Google them).

Since we have a lot a space I made a few pieces of artwork for the walls.

LaundryPrintables

The first this handy Laundry Cheat Sheet. As a former shrinker-of-clothes I think this may come in handy (although now I tend to just hand-wash, dry-flat when in doubt).

I made a matching piece to keep me on track.

 I suppose I should have made it say: “Wash, Dry, Forget about it for three days in the dryer, Fold, Then leave in the living room till a kid needs something to wear”…

….but that didn’t fit.

So, if you struggle with staying motivated then download
these FREE printables for yourself!

They are 8×10. If you use them let me see them in action!

Any laundry tips you care to share?

    You really should be writing in a larger public context. Your writing is brilliant humorous and practical! Love it!

    Hi! love the printables. I wanted to print them at Costco but they have to be a jpeg. When I tried to convert them they said they are password protected. Any help with that??

    Hi there! I just stumbled on these gorgeous prints and I would love to make a few others in the same mint colour. Is there any way that you can tell me what the RGB is for this colour?
