    One Week: A Laundry Laundry List

    Four people, seven days.

    Seven days of socks = 28 pair or 56 socks
    Seven days of undies = 21 panties and/or boxer briefs
    Seven days of bottoms = 24 jeans/sweats/yoga pants
    Seven days of tops = 28 shirts + 10 sweatshirts/sweaters (roughly)
    Seven days of pajamas = 10 pairs (roughly - if we get more than one night out of anyone's)
    Seven days of towels = 8 towels (roughly - again, re-using before washing)
    Seven days of washcloths/hand towels = 14 washcloths + 10-15 hand towels

    Not even listed: jackets, linens, tablecloths, rugs, blankets, dog beds, clothes being laundered for garage sale, extra clothes used for accidents, spills, etc.

    So, what have we learned here?

    Seven days of laundry listed here = a clear, nauseating, painful understanding of why I am NEVER caught up on laundry. Ever.

    Feeling your nausea my dear. This week I'm adding in lots of extra bedding and a couple of pillows to boot. Just may be tossing those pillows though. Ick. Not to mention, my DH changes out of work clothes, so he goes thru two outfits per day. And the two that work out, add two more outfits on those days. I need a tylenol.

    Good luck with your laundry!! :)
