Laundry

Burning question for you today gals. What's your laundry schedule?

I used to do it when it piled up and I had no underwear left. Which for me was about six weeks because I have a bit of a thing for undies. Mr. Bella and I both had cushy desk jobs and our dress clothes didn't get laundered with each wear. Therefore I really could go for about three weeks.

When BB moved in and I was no longer an executive the schedule had to change. I made Monday and Thursday my laundry days. Monday is clothes and sheets, Thursday is clothes and towels. But sometimes I wonder if it's the best system. Thursdays are normally a busy day for me so it's a rush to get it finished. But moving to another day doesn't give it adequate spacing and I don't want to do laundry on the weekends. I also don't want to do all laundry on one day. Ugh!

So I'm thinking of adopting a daily system. Laundry isn't my favorite chore but if it's just a load a day maybe it will be simple and routine like loading the dishwasher and cleaning the kitchen. Let's see now:
Monday: Sheets
Tuesday: Brights
Wednesday: Darks
Thursday: Towels and Whites (bleaching day)
Friday: TBA

I was thinking Friday could be nothing, or it could be a potluck load of whatever clothes are in need and can be washed together, or, because I am one fantastic wife who deserves two carats in each ear I could do dress clothes and actually wash my husbands work attire.

For those of you who don't remember Mr. Bella and I used to do our own laundry. It was our own little secret to marital bliss. However I took over doing all of his non work attire when I no longer worked outside of the home. I suppose I could start laundering all of his clothes because again I am a fantastic wife who deserves two carats in each ear. Ahem!

So spill of all of your dirty laundry secrets. How do you keep up with it?

I'll let you borrow my hubby... he does most of the laundry for me to help out around the house and the baby. Just an idea!!!!

I have this bad habit lately of waiting until the weekend, which is silly but I use to do one load per day that way I was free on my days off to do whatever in clean clothes.

I do it all on Saturday and/or Sunday. And if the weekend's super busy, it may go into Monday or Tuesday. I do 3 loads of clothes (dark colds, dark warms, and white), then a load of towels, then a load of sheets. To save time, I dry a couple loads all at once. (washer takes about 30 minutes, dryer takes 1.5 hours).
