Works For Me Wednesday: Taming Laundry

March 10, 2010

Are we ever really caught up on laundry? In my house the answer is no! We used to each keep our own laundry baskets in our closets. The problem with that? Out of sight out of mind! When I did go to collect laundry baskets on "laundry day" they were overflowing.

A couple of months ago I moved laundry baskets to the laundry room and out of everyone's closets. The new rule is to bring dirty laundry to the laundry room and put it in the appropriate basket. There are baskets for each of us and one for towels. Since I am always going in the laundry room to add dirty laundry I can better monitor when I need to throw a load in the washing machine.

I no longer have a "laundry day." I instead do loads as needed, before the laundry is wildly out of control and takes an entire day to do. I have found that this works for me because I am not a huge fan of laundry, but I can handle it in small doses.
