Tackle it Tuesday–putting laundry away

So, here we are on Monday, and I have a mountain of laundry, plus three other loads that need to be done.

Well, I know what she’s NOT going to do: ignore it for one more day.. especially since she’s out of underthingys, AND there is no path to the bathroom.

First things first.. Set the timer.

I force myself to work undistracted, without taking a break for atleast 37 minutes, preferably more.

Separate the clean from the dirty. All the dirty goes in the laundry room, and all the clean goes up on the bed.

Start the next load in the washer.

In the meantime, start sorting the clean into piles.

My piles are based on where they go when they are folded. Sort BEFORE folding.

Once all of the clean stuff is in piles, I just work around the room. After a pile is folded, I immediately put it away. If I have to take a break, none of my folding gets undone.

So, finally at 11:20 last night, all the laundry was folded and put away. We have sick kids also, so it was a huge accomplishment. And I’m seriously thinking of changing my sanctified laundry day to Monday, instead of Thursday. I have officially decided to drop my Monday pilates class so I can be home more. Now, if I can keep from filling the slot with something else! Is there help for people like me??? perpetually overcommitted, overachievers club?
