A precious friend of mine posted this poem that she had written on FB several years ago. She’s a busy homeschooling momma of 6 kids (5 boys and 1 girl), which means she knows a little something about laundry. I loved this idea so much, but got busy with life and forgot about it until I found it again recently. Since then, my laundry has transformed! After almost 20 years of marriage, I have found a system that works for my family. The very best thing about my system is that my laundry no longer stresses me out because it no longer piles up.
Are you ready for my ingenious laundry system? It’s not rocket science, and it’s certainly not jaw- dropping, but it has made such a huge difference in my family. It’s so easy it’s ridiculous. I simply do one full load of laundry each day, which means I wash, dry, fold, and put it away. My favorite part about my laundry time is praying over my family as I fold our clothes. I know this sounds crazy, but I treasure this added time of calling out my family members in prayer. Plus, by using this method consistently over the past couple of weeks, my laundry hasn’t piled up once! I can’t tell you the peace of mind that this one simple daily discipline has brought to my day.
