Helping You Add Minutes To Your Day: Part 4 – Fold Laundry At Night

Folding laundry at night will help you add minutes to your day.

  Tip number 4: Fold your laundry at night. I am definitely a morning person. By 7 pm, I am DONE! It's a standing joke that by 8 pm, I am in my hot bath. One night, we had the family out at a friend's house until 10 pm. Our neighbor was seriously going to call the police. We had NEVER been out past 8 pm. You should all feel for my kiddos! It's true. We are home at night. It was a … [Read more...]

5 Weeks To The Holidays: Gift Wrap Organization

Gift wrap organization is a quick organizing task you can tackle in less than a day. Here are 3 gift wrap organization ideas.

I have a few rolls of gift wrap and a few … [Read more...]

No More Stinky Towels

No More Stinky Towels | Organize 365

NO MORE STINKY TOWELS! I love the efficiency of starting a load of wash every morning. Hubby doesn’t mind if I leave the house with the washer running, but the dryer is a NO, NO!  Might start a fire! SO, when I get home at 4 pm, I put the wash in the dryer. Which leads to STINKY TOWELS. I have tried a lot of things, but last weekend I devoted HOURS to figuring out how to get my towels … [Read more...]

How Long Do You Keep Lonely Socks?

How Long Do You Keep Lonely Socks? | Organize 365

Today, I am declaring sock amnesty day. This is the sum total of our mismatched socks. Shocking? We don't have lots of clothes, so when I do the wash it all gets done.  Yet we STILL lose socks! I have no idea how this happens. These black socks stay because I have bought a bunch of these... so that when one gets a hole, I can pitch it and save the other one to match up later to another … [Read more...]

40 Days ~ 1 Whole House – Days 38 & 39 The Laundry Room

Laundry Days I LOVE my laundry room. I spend a lot of time in there. But it needed a serious overhaul. I wasn't even really sure where to start, or what I wanted my outcome to be, but I knew what I had wasn't working. Over the years I have added storage to this room...until two summers ago I added all these cabinets. Which I quickly filled! I have been working on the laundry … [Read more...]
