Monthly Mission - Laundry

Laundry is something we all must deal with, or hire someone to deal with it for us.

When I lived in an apartment and had to use the laundry room in the building I pretty much hated it. I would try to do it once a week if I could find the time and a machine. My laundry basket would pile up in the meantime, frustrating me. I did love the end of laundry day, when everything was clean, put away, and my laundry basket was empty. Jump to now… though my laundry machines are in the garage (not my first choice), I am very appreciative to have them in my home. And now I have laundry down to an easy routine that isn’t too terrible at all. It’s actually one of the household duties I hate the least. (I could say “enjoy the most” but I’d be lying because chores in general, to me, are not all that enjoyable. Haha)

Until next time, happy organizing!
