Laundry: Do you drown in it?
If only doing laundry were child's play, but unfortunately it's my least favorite chore. No matter how hard I try, the laundry situation can spiral quickly out of control especially with dirty little boys who rarely will make it through the day with nary a stain on their clothes. On top of this, there's the extra laundry created by the adults who sweat especially in the summer because of the daily bike commute or exercise. Let's also not forget the nighttime accidents that occur on top of towels for baths, showers and swimming. Yes, not everything worn once needs to be be thrown in the wash, but few items pass the "smell" test which leaves little that can be worn more than once without being offensive.
Alright, it's time to air your dirty laundry. We want to know how you stay on top of laundry. How do you avoid moving piles of clean clothes from the bed, back to the laundry basket, and then to the floor several times before they get folded? How do you avoid having piles of clean clothes dispersed all over the house that never make it to drawers or closets? Do you have any strategies for not having laundry take over your lives? Have you found any way to make it less of a chore to do laundry? Photo credit: cafemama.com
