Laundry Confessions ...

It's been a LONG time since I've blogged,  and while I've got several topics I want to do (and pics to go with them, even!) extra time has not been plentiful lately...

Time for me to be really honest ... I struggle with folding laundry and getting it put away. (Might have something to do with adding 3 children to the family, then again, who knows why)

My previous method to make sure that the laundry got folded and put away was to dump it on my bed as it came out of the dryer. That way, I had to fold and put away the laundry before I went to bed! While this works great in theory, the problem is that, often, there was still laundry piled on the bed until after sweetheart got home from work. While this doesn't bother him, it drove me crazy because I was trying to accomplish all my housework/laundry before he arrives home from work so that our evenings can be "family time," not "chores time."

My latest solution that I'm trying and is working so far ... no more laundry on my bed ... instead, I fold it in the kitchen and sort it on the kitchen table... since I'm in the kitchen a lot more throughout the day, it drives me crazy to see laundry stacked in my kitchen, so I put it away! And, since it's on the kitchen table, I have to put it away before we can eat dinner ...

I guess I'm tricking myself into getting it finished earlier, but, hey! You can't argue with what's working!

How do YOU get this accomplished?
