In the snap, the basket was stacked with piles of clothing and a stuffed animal. 

The Counting On alum is married to her husband Derick Dillard and they share sons six, Israel David, and Samuel Scott, four. 

The reality star mentioned that her family was “living out of the laundry basket” season. 

She jokingly added that this “actually kinda happens a lot around here.”

Jill asked her followers how they simplify their struggles with their dishes and laundry. 

In the comments section, Jessa, 28, wrote: “Capsule wardrobe helps cut down on laundry!

“We do about 10 outfits per person and it works great!”


Fans mocked Jessa’s response as many asked what was a capsule wardrobe – which is to keep only the clothing that a person loves to wear – and attempted to disprove her idea in the comments. 

One fan admitted: “I honestly would rather deal with laundry. It’s a bit sad at the thought of my kids having limited clothes just because laundry can be a chore. 

“My husband had limited clothes as a child and he has an issue now wanting too much because he didn’t have enough, a variety, etc when he was a child. He remembers how that felt.”

Another person added: “We are a household of capsule wardrobes I still have a basket of laundry…I now embrace this!

Another person said: “I wish I had the drive to do this but everyone else would have 10 and I’d have 50 lol.”

Another commentator added: “I never had more than 5-7 shirts and wore the same thing constantly. I hate the laundry but I’m grateful to have the ability to provide myself and my kids with more now.”


Recently, Jessa defied the family patriarch’s strict rules by allowing her two young sons to dance at a family wedding.

Jim Bob, 56, and the matriarch Michelle, 54, have stuck to strict rules for their Christian lifestyle while most of their kids, such as Jinger, have been rebelling against them.

Other stern Duggar rules included avoiding birth control, using parental chaperones while they go on dates prior to being married, no modern music, and enforcing home schooling.

She shared various photos of her sons Spurgeon, five, and Henry, four, at a family wedding.

Spurgeon held a balloon in his hand while busting out his skills on the dance floor. 

The TV personality captioned the pics: “Sweet time with grandparents at a family wedding this past weekend!”

Jessa also shares her daughters Ivy, two, and Fern, 1 month, with her husband, Ben Seewald.

Ben also shared a video of himself dancing with Ivy as the clip showed them holding each other’s hands as they rocked side-to-side.
