Last night we spent about 30 minutes folding laundry and that was a small pile compared to normal.  On our bedroom floor you can generally find at least 1 if not 2 baskets full of clean unfolded laundry most days of the week.  I feel as though I shall forever be haunted, by laundry.  We each wear about 2 outfits a day, 1 to work, plus workout clothes.  Somehow (including sheets and towels), this amounts to an average of 7-10 loads of laundry a week for just the 2 of us.  That is crazy!  It's a never-ending battle.  I have no problem actually doing the laundry, it's the folding that I loathe.  I don't mind the washing/drying, even though that requires just as much work because about 1/2 of our clothes don't get put in the dryer, they get hung to dry.  I simply hate folding/hanging!  I tried to implement a nothing comes out of the dryer without being folded rule but KC doesn't get that.

Laundry is one battle I may never win.  I can't even imaging what life will be like when we have kids and all the laundry that comes with them.  If someone would just come in and fold my laundry (and clean the bathroom, but that's another story), I would be ever so happy and keep the rest of my house spotless, I promise!

Anybody have any laundry (management) secrets to share?!

  1. I try not to let it build up... sometimes I'll just do one load (like whites) if I'm feeling too overwhelmed. Also, if you dump the clean laundry on the couch that your husband likes to sit in, he just may fold it for you. :)


Comments make me smile!

Have a wonderful day!
