This Tuesday's Tip is about my favorite chore... folding laundry. Ha! Is there any other activity more filled with monotonous boredom than folding millions of pairs of underwear? I know none.
So, I stopped.
Well, I stopped folding all those little things that our grandmothers ironed, like underwear and socks. Bibs and burpies went by the wayside as well. I purchased plastic tubs, drawer dividers, and cute baskets so each item has a contained home whether it is visible on a shelf in my living room, or tucked away in the closet. I buy one brand of white socks, and one brand of black socks for both my husband and son. This frees me from finding and pairing mates since every sock matches every other. The girls have chosen to spend a few minutes finding matches in order to have cute socks. Hey, more power to them *wink*. But honestly, when was the last time you thought to yourself:
Man, am I glad my underwear were folded because the time I spent doing that REALLY improved my day!
