Tomorrow is the last day of August, which means it’s the last day of our Organize Back To School Challenge!  I am still in shock that September just appeared out of nowhere.  I am so not ready for fall, but am looking forward to getting back into a routine.  I think our family needs that structure more consistently then we had over the summer.

For the challenge, your task today is to get all the clothes put away.  We started the weekend by washing everything.  Yesterday we folded everything.  Today, we put everything away.  For us, it was an incredible amount of clothes.  Early this month, I shared how I organize the kids’ drawers, kid’s closets, and our drawers and closets.  Check out those posts for more tips on how to get things organized in those spaces.

So, before you get to putting away all the clothes you have washed and folded, I’m sharing some of my favorite inspirational ideas from other bloggers.  It’s my laundry round-up!  You can find more laundry inspiration on my Pinterest page!

To start, I love these printable tags to help act as a cheat sheet for getting stains out!  Such a cleaver idea to print off the tags from Better Homes and Gardens.  Attach to a binder ring to the laminated tags, and use when you have a tough stain to get out.  I love how they are color coded.  Just subscribe to become a free member, and you will have access to all of Better Homes and Gardens free printables like these tags.
