Oh, and they were old. Really, really, old. I'm talkin' hand-me-down-free-for-the-taking-old.
And really, if you do a load of laundry a day, it is not fun to carry all the laundry down two flights of stairs, only to wash them and carry them back up two flights of stairs.
We have a big closet in the first floor bathroom. I ripped the doors off a few years ago to do this.
It is the perfect place for my new loves.
My husband cut the shelf that was already there in half and made two smaller shelves to store the detergent and other cleaning products.
A friend even pointed out how nice it will be when the kids come in all muddy, and they can just strip down right there, and throw their clothes in the washer. I had never even thought about that! I feel so spoiled.
Is it strange that I have wiped them down everyday since we got them?
