This first picture has nothing to do with The Laundry Monster, but did you see the moon this weekend? It was spectacular!
Not having a system was yielding me one result-the laundry was always out of control, unmanageable and a source of frustration.
At first, having a certain day of the week (for me, Monday) to do laundry was not easy. It did not come natural. But, by the 3rd week of tackling the main load of laundry on Monday I began to notice some things.
For starters, Monday rolls around each and every week. Like clockwork. It has become routine. I don't even have to think about it any more. At my house, when Monday morning rolls around, I unearth the hamper, sort into piles and get the hot water and good times rolling.
My laundry is always kept manageable. For me, Friday mornings are also a mini-laundry morning. For you, every day may have at least a load or two in it's horizon. Having a day or time to do the main laundry is helpful. If you try it for a few weeks, I think you'll like the change of having the mound kept at bay.
Do you know that this last picture means? It's our little signal that someone has already put in the fabric softener. At our house, if you put in the fabric softener, you leave the jug on top of the washing machine so we know it's been taken care of. I know, sheer genius, what can I say?
