warning :)

Sorry for any typos. I mostly blog from my iPhone lying in bed nursing a baby or sitting on the couch nursing a baby, or wearing a baby nursing. In between home schooling and laundry and diaper changing. Oh did I mention I might be nursing a baby? The point is, I rarely sit down at the computer. Thanks for understanding. You're the best!

Going green or, Lots of kids

Reusing bath towels is just part of having 5 kids (or going green) whatever your deal is. Mine, it lots if kids and no desire to have 5-7 bath towels to wash daily. No thank you! 

We have had a problem with, how do we store that many towels after bath time?

Well her you have That Crazy Moms 5 minute solution. 

Labeled hangers. 

Each child has a color. After a bath we hang them over the hanger and on the shower rod. 
It's been working really well. 

Do you have a special way you hang towels to reuse?

Today I'm linking up with mommy monday The modest mom and moms the word, go check them out. Really great stuff! Thanks ladies, I am always inspired.


  1. I grew up in a family that always re-used towels, even with just two kids. We used the same ones for a week, then washed. Washing towels after every use is just weird and excessive to me!

  2. We have two towels for each person, and each person has their own color. we use a towel two or three times and then put it in the wash and switch to the other one.

  3. so with 6 kids and our towels end up on the floor and walked on, I decided to limit our amount of towel usage. we have 4 towels the kids share. the baby has her own, so only the toddler boys share a towel. we got one of those coat rack holders with hooks that gets mounted to the wall. it has 4 double hooks. works perfect for our little house and lots of kids.. hey they're clean when they get out of the bath right....

  4. Your hanger idea is brilliant! Thanks for sharing : )

  5. Hey, that's very clever! I love the label idea. We have towels racks that we "share" but they do get a bit crowded even with only the five of us, lol!

    Thanks so much for linking up to Making Your Home Sing Monday! By the way, the new linky party is live and ready for your posts! :)
