How big is your laundry that you can fit 7 baskets? Or does Mondays basket live in the guest bedroom and Tuesdays in the hamper by the stairs because if that is the case, firstly it would be annoying to have to remember what day it is and which room the basket can be found! Also why so many baskets if you wash everyday? You’d theoretically need at most 3 baskets. One for whites, darks and colors.
OP, if you are indeed not pulling our leg with your posts, you may need some professional help. OCD tendencies you have mentioned are counterintuitive to well being. Sleep schedules, regemented behaviours surrounding food and housework are not healthy and especially so when in combination with other forms of strict routine and behaviours. I think you might be a lot happier if you spoke to someone about all this.
If you are indeed pulling our leg then you should seek help also because getting your jollies writing fake posts is just as unusual.

She is very clearly making this up. If she’s doing a load of laundry every single day, there would be no sense at all in habhavseven baskets, as you would only ever need a clean basket and a dirty one, or perhaps a whites and a colours. You wouldn’t need a basket for each day of the week if you are doing all the laundry from the day each day.
Girl, you’re losing your edge. Shoulda stopped with the dinner party.

How do you even finish the laundry before your strict bedtime? #goals

I have 7 laundry baskets, for each day of the week, for this purpose: lets say on Monday I am wearing an outfit I would like to wear again on Friday. So, therefore, I put that particular outfit in the Thursday basket so it can be washed and ready to go by Friday morning. With my husband, if he has work outfits that he would like to wear twice throughout the week he will put them in the correct basket to be washed the night before. BUT if there are outfits that aren’t going to be re-worn throughout the week, those go in the Saturday/Sunday basket-along with the sheets that are washed every weekend. To keep things orderly, my husband and I both plan our outfits throughout the week so everything can be washed accordingly.

I start on it as soon as I get home at 9pm.

why can’t you just put the Monday outfit in a general laundry basket and wash it the same night you take it off and have it ready to go for Friday? You say you wash every day so why wait until thursday to wash an outfit you need for Friday? It just sounds so convuloted and a way of creating unnecessary steps.
OP I like order too and the process of doing things to a structure but I don’t let my natural trait of being OCD minded rule my life. It sounds like you a veering into unhealthy and obsessive behaviour that is ruling your life and how you interact with others.
Your husband isn’t putting his washing away because he is probably unconsciously rebelling against the parameters you are forcing on him.

Not only this, but on top of clothes, but I wash OUR towels on Wednesday (therefore they go in the Wednesday basket), Delicates on Monday (therefore they go in the Monday basket), sheets/towels that are in our guest bedroom on Friday (therefore they go in the Friday basket). I am pretty strict about Friday (guest items) washing in case any dust has accumulated on the items or by the OFF-OFF chance we might have rodents/bugs that have crawled across or what have you. This system really works for us and it gives me assurance to know when things will be done.

That could very well be true. I have never fully accepted that I might be suffering from OCD (I am sure, like you, I don’t like that term just being thrown around) but when I explain things like this to people it’s always judgment and or concern. I appreciate you actually being kind about it, because if you’re a sufferer of OCD you know how it can really make your life come crashing down at certain points.

I think that if you are going to be so specific about the way something is done, it becomes your job to deal with it. For example, I don’t like when my husband tries to put things away, because he inevitably puts things where I won’t find them or throws away something I need. Therefore, I’m the one who does the tidying.
It sounds like there can’t be more than a couple items of clothing to put away each night. Is there a reason you don’t put his away for him, since nightly laundry is clearly your thing?
And then I am genuinely curious – Is there a reason you don’t just rewear your clothes once more before washing? Or why you don’t pick another shirt to wear on Friday so that you don’t have to deal with laundry on Thursday? You would save so much money if you stopped doing laundry every day. It would be cheaper to have one designated outfit per day of the week.
Also, I love that I got this ad. 😂

Seven?! That’s OTT. What if he has a synaptic lapse and thinks it’s Wednesday and it’s really only Tuesday?
The system, as designed, is not workable. You can either choose to change it or keep things as they are.
What you can’t do is change your Dh. If the laundry all went into one basket (like the rest of us), would he get his dirty stuff in there?

when the heck, between your 10+ hours a night of sleep, cooking to suit your extremely rigid diet, and doing laundry every single night, did you have time to even meet and get to know someone well enough to marry?
All these stories coming together just don’t add up.

OP everything you post has been so extreme and rigid. You refuse to see that you are the problem. You rebut every time someone tries to offer you advice. Your personality seems to be contrary just for the hell of it…what are you really seeking? Because to me, it seems like you’re getting some sort of kick out of getting everyone riled up about your strange lifestyle habits.
These posts have been back to back to back…let’s see:
2.) Dinner party 1.0
3.) Dinner party 1.1
4.) Dinner party 1.2 – no significant changes
5.) Dinner party 1.3 – still no changes
all of this has been over the span of like, a week…if even that long. each posts ends with users being frustrated because you refuse to acknowledge your own issues. It’s quite strange, indeed…
