I know I am not the only one who feels like she is always doing some sort of laundry task. I mean really, it seems like I just finish putting all the clean stuff away and I already have another load to wash. So lately I have been trying to streamline the boring chore of laundry. Real Simple has some great starting tips for busy families. Probably the greatest tip of all, and the one I have been using successfully, is to spread out the task over the week. Instead of trying to do one massive laundry day, which means I am tethered to my laundry room for hours and hours, I have put our house on a laundry cycle. I do clothes on Tuesday/Wednesday, sheets on Thursday, towels on Friday, and a miscellaneous load or two on the weekends. This has greatly decreased my laundry related stress, and made it easier to manage the linens in our home.
