WFMW - Getting Through the Laundry Pile Quicker

Some days I have a LOT of laundry for my family of 7. When the pile seems overwhelming, I've employed a simple trick to get through it a little easier. The worst part of doing laundry, for me, is getting it all folded. So, I make sure to stagger a hard to fold load (like clothes) with an easy to fold load ( like towels or diapers). Knowing that after folding a large load of clothes my next load will have very little folding helps me to keep at it and not procrastinate. There are days when I only have clothes and this doesn't work, but most days I have at least a load of diapers or towels or sheets. Something so simple helps keep the laundry done and Works For Me!!

  1. Great tip! We have a family of 5 and the laundry is always hard to keep up with.

  2. That's a great idea! I have sheets in the dryer right now for that very reason! :)

  3. My 15 & 12 yr old are in charge of folding & putting away their own clothes.


Let me know what you're thinking!!
