The last few months, I’ve been trying out a new way to manage my laundry, and it’s working really well for me.
And it’s a good thing, because my laundry? It needed managing. Before, I was letting it all pile up, and then, overwhelmed and stressed, I’d feel like I needed a marthon laundry day to catch up on it all. It was a constant battle.
Instead, I’ve made out a schedule for myself. I’ve assigned each day one or two specific loads of laundry that need to be done that day. Wednesday, for example, is towels and Adam’s laundry (which he does himself, but a fair bit of supervision is required). Thursdays is for mine and Hubs’ whites and lights.
Each day I try to get only those couple of loads done. I don’t worry about trying to have a moment when all the laundry in the house is finished (does such a thing even exist?), I simply concentrate on each day’s particular “assignment”. The best part is that when (not if) I get behind, I only have to catch up to that particular day of the week, which is much less overwhelming than trying to launder everything. I keep a copy of the schedule taped to the washer, and another copy to my upstairs bathroom mirror, to remind me each morning to get that load downstairs and started at the beginning of the day.
