Laundry was something I felt could be adjusted, especially since that is one of the last things I wanted to do on the weekend anyway. The following is a system that works for me. Believe it or not, it doesn’t involve wearing the same clothes five days in a row. Yay for me (and everyone around me).
First, I made bags to separate my clothes so they are ready to throw in—whites, darks, delicates, cleaning cloths, etc. Then I assigned each bag its own day of the week. Every day a load of laundry is washed, dried, folded, and put away. The method is simple, but by doing just one load a day, we have saved several hours of work. Now the weekends are a little more restful and relaxing, and a little less hectic and hustled.
Glass of wine anyone?
