Advice, Anyone?

This is the part of the program where we include audience participation. Ready?

Okay. Here at Smockityville, we have laundry issues. Extreme issues, friends.

Here is the scenario.

  • Our children are very messy.
  • Thus, we have lots of laundry.
  • Our children are very many.
  • Thus, Smockity is busy.
  • Our washer and dryer (“Canyon Capacity” ~ Thanks, Hon!) are located in the kitchen.
  • Thus, there are always clothes that need to be folded and put away on the couch.
  • Except when relatives call to say they are 2 hours from Smockityville and would we mind if they drop in.
  • Then there are clothes that need to be folded and put away behind Mr. and Mrs. Smockity’s closed bedroom door.
  • Any Smockity child under 8 cannot be trusted to deposit clean, folded clothes into the correct receptacle.
  • Thus, Smockity finds clean, folded clothes in the laundry hamper.
  • And the toy box.
  • And under beds.

    Need I go on? I think you get the idea.

    So, for a while I’ve been dreaming of a place I could house all of our clothes, a family closet, so to speak.

    That way, I could go directly there with the clean clothes and sort, fold and put away clothes all in one location.

    The only problem with that is we don’t have an extra room just waiting around for me to think up a use for.

    But, Mr. Smockity and I do have a large master bedroom with a very large walk-in closet. So, a few weeks ago when the Mr. came home with a set of old lockers, those gears in my noggin started turnin’.

    What if I put the lockers in our closet, label them, and house all kids’ clothes in there? There are 18 lockers, total. The size of the unit is approximately 6 feet by 6 feet, I think. I am too lazy to measure don’t know where the measuring tape is am using my keen observation skills.

    This would also allow for more space in the children’s bedrooms because the dressers would be taken out.

    The question I have is for moms of many. Do you think this could work? Are there drawbacks I am not thinking of? Have any of you experimented with anything similar? Is this idea completely crazy?

    Let the commenting begin!
