I'm a devout "people watcher"... I l-o-v-e people!! In the gather world, that translates into being an avid "lifestyle reader". I enjoy reading the posts about what people have planned for the day, how they parent, what they buy when they shop, how they clean their homes, how they prioritize their to-do lists, how the celebrate holidays/birthdays, etc.
Lately I have seen a lot of articles that include talk about laundry... obviously, it will ALWAYS need to be done, but what is interesting to me is how differently we all accomplish the same task. For example....
Some people have specific days set aside for laundry... not me! I do laundry almost every day! 5 people, 1 dog, 5 beds, 2 bathrooms, too many extra cirricular activities... it all adds up to a LOT of laundry. I spread it out to avoid being chained to the washer/dryer all day long!
I've also noticed that (at least lately) many folks tend to wash and dry their laundry and save the folding for later.... 2, 3, 4, 5 loads at a time. Doesn't it get wrinkled in the baskets? I'm a bit weird on this one... I fold or hang while I pull each piece from the dryer. Doesn't matter if it's jeans, shirts, undies, towels, etc... it all gets folded right then and there.... Well, except for the socks! I can't stand to mate socks!!! Every sock goes into a basket and hubby mates them while he watches TV in the evening. That's his contribution to laundry! As long as he does that, I'm a happy camper!
