I used to dread laundry day! I have to admit, it always seemed to drag on to laundry days....clothes would get washed, but not folded or put away.
Recenlty I started using FlyLady's method, and it has really worked for me. It makes laundry not seem like such a chore, and it never gets piled up or out of control.
The hub below addresses FlyLady's method of doing laundry.
