I'm Karen from Washington state, USA.
Do you know any tricks for those of us in older homes with only one bathroom? I have a teenage son and a disabled husband who spends 2 hrs in there each morning. I can't get up any earlier (5:30am to let the caregiver in).
Karen, here's what I'd do to organise the time better:
- Allocate each person set "bathroom time" daily. The fastest person goes first so that the schedule is not thrown off if there are delays :)
- Everybody doesn't have to have their main bathroom time in the mornings. Can someone not do theirs in the evenings?
- To make the time more efficient, dressing must be done in the bedrooms.
- Have a bathroom caddy for each person which they bring into and take out of the bathroom when it's their time. This way the bathroom doesn't have to store unnecessary things.
Do you have one or more bathrooms family members have to share? How do you get everyone in and out quickly in the mornings?
