I use half a colour catcher in each load and no longer separate. Wash each persons sheets in their load too. I find it super efficient and I never ever have a build up of washing anymore.
    I do my 8yr old DS on Saturday, 6yr old DD Sunday, Monday 3yr old, 10 month old Tuesday, DH & myself on Wednesday and Thursday I do towels & bathmats.

    How do people get away with one jumper? My kids think they're disposable and we go through about 50 billion jumpers (and hats) every year.

    We're changing our kids rooms around in the next few weeks...and they're now all getting their own laundry hamper so I can do this. I am so glad you shared! I am so sick of the 'these aren't my undies/socks/shorts' arguements, and this system just eliminates that completely. I feel like you just changed my life 😂

    I'm a bit of a cheap skate so I only have the kids one set of uniforms each. They wear the same clothes every day, I just wash and dry them ever night hH

    Our hat count this year so far is 6. My son has 2 of each uniform. It's not enough but they're not cheap!

    My DS is now grade four and he has two sport uniforms and three formal, one jumper and one hat. We don't need winter uniforms here as it doesn't get cold enough.

    We would be down to our granny undies and holey socks if we only washed out stuff once a week

    Great thread idea!

    We start school next year and im lost with how much to buy. I was thinking 1 or 2 logo tops shirts and jumpers with a few cheap plain ones incase. Pants/shorts are black so that's easy!

    I have a uniform for every day of the week so I do t have to worry about washing. They only have one type though (polo shirt and footy shorts). I also have two hats for each of them (but started with one and then bought a new one each year as they tend to lose and find their hats regularly). I have two jumpers for them in winter and my youngest has tracksuit pants (eldest won't wear them but it's never extremely cold here.) I bought two 5 packs of socks for them but they always seem to be searching for socks!!!
