how high is your dirty laundry pile/ basket??
post #2 of 27
3 feet. But the only reason it's so small is cuz were having my DD's birthday party here tomorrow and I had to tone it down to one hamper :LOL

Pretty low, it is always the clean clothes that are piled high. Like 6-8 loads on my love seat.

3 feet :

Concidering how far the entire pile spans across the laundry room floor, it could, potentially, be twice as high.

well, i chose 3 feet, but thats 2 3' piles in the bedroom and a variety of smaller piles in the kitchen, lr, and bathroom. plus the diapers.....i hate doing laundry. i thought it would be better with not going to the laundromat, but i still hate it.

well, i chose 1 foot .. because all that's in the laundry pile in the washroom is one set of my clothes, one set of DD's clothes, and a pair of DH's jeans .. Although I'm sure sometime today I'll round up a ton of the rest of the kid's clothes while I'm picking up before my parents show up.

My laundry pile is only a foot to two deep....... by another 8 feet or so!!!

Too much housework, so little time, even less motivation. No wonder our wardrobes are so extensive! It's like having a stash of 48 dipes so you don't have to wash them until the next week!

(I am so ashamed.)

Well, mine isn't that high but it's pretty wide. We seriously just open the garage door and throw the clothes out there. We have a couple of hampers but they fill up so soon....I do 2 loads a day and it still stays like this!!

I have many 3' piles. I am ashamed, and I have no excuses for it, either.

I have about five huge piles right now but today is laundry day so three of them are sheets or towels.

Um....4 feet plus... : we keep our dirty laundry hidden in our spare bath tub - with the shower curtain pulled, of course! I would die if anyone pulled it back and saw Mount Dirty Clothes!!

In our defense... ...at least a little - we don't have a washer or dryer...

I put 5 feet, but that's if you include everything in the house including dirty diapers for two. Our dryer is broken, someone ran down our clothesline and we're waiting for a repair so we can put it up again and I don't want to go to the laundromat, so it's slow going. I did pick up another drying rack last night, so maybe I can pick up the pace a bit :LOL

Are we twins?? :LOL Seriously- until I got a couple of extra laundry baskets, I would wash, dry, dump on love seat. Repeat until washer/dryer are empty. Pluck clean clothes off the love seat to wear. Now, I bought a few extra baskets, I have clean clothes in baskets all over the house.

hehehe, it was 4 feel high and 5 feet wide, but I did five loads yesterday and thee the day before that. ~whew~

I would say it is about two (including stuff DH keeps washing even though it hasn't been worn) but your post has inspired me to get it don.e Nothing like accountability to motivate a person to clean!
