Organizing Challenge Focus on the laundry This week’s Mini Challenges focus exclusively on the one area that drives so many people crazy...the backlog of laundry. Accomplish these challenges this week, and you’ll instantly see a lot of that stress vanish, and you’ll save time too. 1. Save time matching socks: Purchase a mesh lingerie bag for each member of your family, so dirty socks can remain paired together through the entire laundry process. 2. Stop folding and putting away everything on your own: Place small laundry baskets, one for each family member, by the dryer. As you pull the laundry out of the dryer, sort the items by family member. Then each person can swing by the laundry center to pick up their own clothes. They can fold them (if applicable) and put them away on their own. (In fact, most kids over the age of 8 are capable to do laundry by themselves, especially if it’s pre-sorted.) 3. Catch up with the “heaps”: Do you have a mountain of clothing to wash? Are you spring cleaning and have several heavy items to wash like comforters, blankets, etc.? Then consider taking it all to the local’ll get your laundry done all at once. 4. One, two, three: Aside from undergarments and socks, most clothing and towels can be worn more than once or twice before laundering. Unless you’ve spilled something on your clothes, or you didn’t hang up a towel, you can get more uses out of these items before washing if you wish to do so. 5. A load (or two) a day: Most people are behind on their laundry because they don’t do it daily...then it gets out of hand. Do at least one load a day completely (wash, dry and fold), or two a day if you have a family of 4 or more. We’re lucky, as a society, these days...the machines do most of the work!
