Do you fold your laundry daily?

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

 

 

Dear Friends,
On Wednesdays, I like to talk about things you tend to put off. When I talk to some of you, one thing that has been hitting high on the list of things procrastinated is folding laundry when the dryer buzzes.
Many of your families are living out of laundry baskets. They search around each day for clean clothes. Sometimes things end up on the floor and scattered about. Then you collect them and wash them again.
It only takes a few minutes to fold a load of laundry. Sometimes during the live BINGO game I host with FlyLady Premium, I will fold or hang a load of laundry in 5 minutes. I know it is possible! I do it all of the time.
Each night, I check out dirty laundry bins, and I start a load of laundry if a basket is full. Usually, it is a load of towels. I get up at 5:00 every morning, and I put the wet load of laundry in the dryer. Sometimes I start a load of darks or jeans after I switch the towels over. This way I can get two loads of laundry washed, dried, and folded before lunch.
If I don’t have a load to start first thing in the morning, the boys wash one of their loads of laundry.

Sheets are often overlooked in your Weekly Home Blessings. Assign a day of the week to each person in the house to wash his or her sheets.

Teach your children to sort their laundry and put dirty clothes in the bin assigned. If your family has been used to living out of laundry baskets and dropping dirty clothes on the floor, you will need to be consistent daily with checking their rooms and reminding them to put their laundry away.
Clean laundry needs to be put away daily. It does not need to stay in baskets in the laundry room or in the bedrooms.
If you do not have enough room to put all of the laundry away at one time, declutter some clothes. Each person needs a place to hang clothes and a drawer to put away folded clothes.
You can do this! Use the Do It Now Principle and don’t let your laundry pile up.
Your Zone Mission today is to clean out the stuff that does not belong in your closet.

Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe your windows and mirrors.

My menu plan for Wednesday is pasta for the boys and a salad.

Have a great day!
