The necessity of doing excessive loads of laundry.
So here is my habit. The habit that keeps me pretty centered and sane where laundry is concerned.
~GET TWO SETS OF BASKETS FOR LAUNDRY~
Set One is for clean laundry. Set One is rectangular. These are the baskets that receive clean clothes – and only clean clothes. These are the baskets full of bounty and beauty and find their way into bedrooms. They hold folded laundry neatly and carefully. They have a special spot – perched atop the dryer. I have 4 in this set.
Set Two is for dirty laundry. Set Two is round. I have always preferred round for dirty laundry. I have 4 in this set and put them near the washer so that I can sort and separate into: White, light, dark, and cold water loads. I never really did think much about why I chose the round to do the dirty work – until I read The Nester’s blog called Square, Not Round – and then it was all so clear to me. Round baskets are well … awkward.
So it’s down with round.
And up with rectangles.
