Laundry Routine

I'm all about routine. I love the idea of it...but I'm terrible about executing it. I get lazy, or give up because it's too hard. Plus, with two kids aged 2 and 6 many things can disrupt any routine that we might have. BUT, one thing that I have to keep as a somewhat consistent routine is our laundry. For the past month or two I have really struggled to keep our dirty laundry under control. My word...there were days where I couldn't even finish washing it because there was too much. As a person who has a tiny bit (read: SERIOUSLY LARGE AMOUNT) of OCD, I hate having wrinkled clothes, or trying to pull clean clothing out of a hamper every morning. That was what I was doing, until a friend told me about what she does...she washes, dries, folds, and puts away one load of laundry each day. Holy cow. Game changer! For the past week I have been trying to do that (yesterday was an exception because we were gone to out Bible study in the morning)...and it's been going so smoothly! We have clean clothes in our drawers, AND I don't feel like I can't keep up. Win, win!

What are some tidying up/laundry/organizing tips that you have?
