That is the question. I have no problem washing clothes. As a matter of fact, I would be happy to wash clothes all day long. That’s not the issue. The issue is folding & putting away. This is my least favorite chore and one I would be happy not doing, ever.
I will be the first to admit, my clean clothes will stay in the baskets after they’ve been washed… for quite a while. Hey, I’m not giving numbers here, I know how you guys like to judge.

When mentioning the fact that I actually got some clothes put away tonight, not just put in baskets… I almost felt like cheering or doing a little dance. Why is it so hard to wash, fold & put away. All in the same day?
Are you a laundry slacker? If not, what are your tricks and tips to successfully put clothes away – within the week (or two) that they’ve been washed.
When mentioning my laundry issue today, here are some things I got in response:
“I had clean clothes sitting on my bedroom floor for 2 WEEKS. Okay, maybe it was 3 but seriously.. it was a long time.”
“Dude… I am ASHAMED to show you guys the laundry pile in my bedroom. I am ridiculously behind. But hey, at least it was clean, right?!”
“I always tell myself I need to hang up clothes right after I get them out of the dryer but I never do. They stay in the laundry baskets until I’m so beyond frustrated from not finding anything.”
So maybe I’m not the only one who hates laundry. Please tell me you dislike it too…
