    Laundry Thoughts

    wasn't sure where to post this really. But this group almost makes sense because I think it's my lack of putting away my clothes regularly that led to my epiphany today. But whatever the reason, I realised as I hung my clothes out on the line that it was almost the best way to...

    I like to think of this literally.

    Yes, I will wash clothes all day long, but folding? Heh. I've actually tossed a few clothes at my dog and said,"just do your best, try your hand at it." But I also see this in a figurative light. I feel like we as a people can "wash" ourselves in any way possible so that our...

    I Do Put Them In My Drawers Though

    Why should I fold them when It's not like they get dirty just cause they're not folded. Why bother. I have two laundry baskets so it's not like dirty clothes are mixed in with clean ones.

    I try to get as much done

    as I could. There are other events I need to attend to other then laundry. I may put a load on, then hang them later on.

    I chronically do this.

    Laundry is just too much. I can stand to wash the dishes, clean the floors, and anything else, but laundry has too many steps and requires too much maintenance. : /

    Folding Laundry

    Hey group!  I just joined up, and I thought I'd share my thoughts about folding laundry. Most steps involved in doing laundry take a relatively small amount of time.  Gather up the laundry; 5 minutes, throw it in the washer; 5 minutes, put it in the dryer; 2 minutes...

    I thought I was the only one

    who did this. I actually hired a maid for years to do little more than wash, fold and put my clothes away. I have no problem washing them.

    Omg I laughed so hard

    when I saw this!!!! SOOOO me! I actually stopped folding them and just toss them into their respective drawers and even still I have a hard time keeping the clean clothes out of the laundry baskets. Which means all the dirty clothes end up on the floor... Woot!

    Must Follow Through

    This is the part I dislike the most about doing laundry.  Putting it away. I get it washed, dryed, and folded.  But then run out of steam to put it away.
