I have a confession to make.
I'm really, really bad at laundry. I know, I know, unless you're a 20 year old college kid, how can you really be bad at laundry?
I don't know the answer to that question. I just know that I'm bad at it. I think the main problem is that I don't do it. And then suddenly I have nothing to wear and the baskets are overflowing and I'm overloading the washer and it's all a bit of a disaster.
And then the problem gets worse because I finally do a few loads and then they sit. In baskets. Around the house. For days. Like this.
And instead of putting it away, I just kind of rifle through the basket every morning looking for what I need and leaving everything else to become even more intimately acquainted with its wrinkles. Sometimes I even ADD to the laundry basket. Like if I take a shirt out of the closet and then decide I want to wear a different shirt, instead of hanging the first shirt back up, I'll just toss it in the basket of clean laundry.
Sigh. I can't believe I'm admitting this on the Internet.
Anyway, about a year ago we hired a wonderful nanny who started doing our laundry for us. We didn't ask her to, but she just started doing it anyway. And she wouldn't just do the laundry, but she would fold it and put it away. So, for a whole year I haven't had to deal with these baskets sitting all over the house. In fact, for a whole year I haven't even done any laundry. It's been marvelous.
Unfortunately, due to Greg's recent unemployment status, we've had to let our nanny go. Besides this being sad in a million horrible ways because we love her dearly, it also means that, yes, I have to start doing laundry again.
So, tell me Internet, I need your help! Tell me how to organize my laundry! Seriously!
