Works for Me - Sorting Laundry

For me, Saturday is laundry day. And as much as I dread doing laundry all day, I really dread having to sort out all the clothes in the morning to get started. So last week I implemented a new rule for hubby and I: each laundry basket has a color designation - darks in one baskets, whites in another, reds in another. As we undress each day, the clothes go in the designated basket. Simple as this may be, it gives me a jumpstart on the sorting process and makes me dread laundry day just a little bit less. It works for me!

This is a good idea. We have a hamper for towels, another for my stuff, and one for my husband, and then I have a basket that I put sweaters and dress clothes in. I still separate the whites out before washing because the only whites we have are my socks and a few shirts. I'm a big fan of the "pre-sort." It saves a lot of time!
