Lesson 6

Q: What is the secret to keeping the laundry caught up?

A: When I was growing up, my mom taught me to set aside one day a week to clean house and do laundry. Saturday was usually that day. That didn’t mean leaving all of the dirty dishes until that day or ignoring the messy spills, extra dirt tracked in, and clutter. It meant doing laundry in between stripping the beds and washing the sheets, scrubbing/cleaning the bathrooms, vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, mopping, emptying the trash, and remaking the beds. Phew!

The thing that made all of this doable in one day was the fact that she kept the house tidy the rest of the week. Because of this, she didn’t have to straighten everything up or wash a week’s worth of dishes or clean messy/sticky/yucky spills along with everything else. It worked! For her… and lots of other women… and me, for awhile. 

Then things changed, and I realized that I couldn’t do all of that in one day along with my other responsibilities. I loved being able to do it the way my mother did it, and I wanted to keep doing it her way, but it stopped working for me. I finally came to the conclusion that my life and marriage was so different from hers that I had to reorganize. It took awhile for me to get used to it and for her to admit that our lifestyles were totally different. 

Let me try to explain in a nutshell. My dad went to work early each morning and returned home in the evening. My mom had that time, and while my brother and I were in school, to get the house in order, run errands, cook supper, prepare Bible classes, sew, etc. On the other hand, I married a man who eventually worked from home and I helped him with a lot of his work. Then the boys were born and we homeschooled. For over 20 years, we traveled together as he spoke at Gospel meetings, youth rallies, and Bible camps, and for 20+ years, we directed a nonprofit organization. Both my mom and I were busy every day, but in different ways. 

I’m thankful for all that Mom taught me about taking care of my husband, children, and house. She was my Titus 2 and Proverbs 31 woman. I’m also thankful that she recognized that I could still follow her example without doing everything the way she did them.

What I’m trying to say is that it takes time to find out what works best for you and your family, but it’s always a good idea to learn from other women who are good at being a wife and mother and keeping up with the housework. Try their tips and adjust them to your family’s lifestyle.

I’ll share what works for me at my stage of life, but I have a feeling that some day I will go back to my mom’s routine. It really was a good one. 

Life is continually changing. We must make the best of our current circumstances!

My laundry routine:

I have a 4-bag laundry sorter with labels (in the laundry room) and a clothes hamper (in the bathroom). Once the hamper gets full (2-3 times a week), I sort the clothes into the sorter.

Usually, I wash a load 3-4 days a week. Occasionally, I have to wash 2 loads in one day, but rarely do I have to wash more than that in one day, even before we leave on a trip. 

I try to do a full load every time, on a day when I’m not overly busy with cooking, cleaning or errands, and oftentimes when I’m doing computer work or budgeting (for three households) since it makes me take a break and move around a little.

I have all of my supplies in the laundry room including clothes hangers and a rod to hang up the clothes.

I remind myself that we are blessed to have clothes to wash and a washer and dryer to get them clean!

One thing I don’t do well is take the clothes immediately out of the dryer. I don’t know why. It’s one of my downfalls, though. 

What is your routine? Do you have one? Do you like it? Do you know some women who will share their tips with you? Have you asked them?

Thought Question: What do Proverbs 31:10-31 and Titus 2:3-5 have to do with keeping the laundry caught up?
