Then I let my mind run, as I usually do. What the heck was that salesman thinking anyway? Twelve pairs of jeans? We are a two person family, me and Brad. I thought more. I would have to be pretty unorganized to have to wash twelve pairs of jeans at the same time.
Ok, what if you’re a family of six? Ok, each member goes through two pairs of jeans each week. I get it now!!
So, if you have to wash THAT many pairs of jeans each week, chances are you have lots of other things to wash that are just as important; say socks and underwear for starters!
Ok, enough rage. Issues with laundry seem to be a common complaint among most people I meet. So, how do you prevent “laundry overload”? Lots of ways! First, do it often. Second, have a system for sorting. Third, time your loads so you know how long each one takes. Fourth, fold it immediately. Lastly, enlist other family members to help put it away.
Remember, a little bit goes a long way. This is where you nod your head and say “Yes, Carleen, I believe.”
