I'm stealing a few minutes with my computer and a cup of tea, and I thought I would share my latest break through in....
Ever present, never stopping LAUNDRY.
One day I stumbled upon this post....Do you feel like your house is always messy?
How could I resist it?
Here's a quote from the post...
"doing laundry from beginning to end is a cycle. When you start a second load of laundry before you complete the first one, you’ve broken the laundry cycle. Then it gets harder to complete the cycle (i.e. put away the first load of laundry)."
This concept is revolutionary to me. The end of the cycle is putting it away, my least favorite part of laundry. I'm good at pushing loads through and piling small mountain ranges of clean clothes on our bed. I even get as far as folding it most days. But putting it away, I loathe the task.
But by not putting it away, I'm never done. I continue to fold and fold, and then I have so much laundry to put away it's no wonder I dread it so much.
So because I had nothing to lose, I dabbled in a little laundry experimentation last week. I washed, dried, folded, and put away a load before I started another one. I'm not going to lie, it was little bit magical. There was a sense of done-ness with my laundry that I've never experienced before.
Do you do this? Put laundry away before starting a new load?
P.S. The blog post is about more then just laundry. It's about finishing jobs staying on task. Truly inspiring.
