I don’t know about you, but laundry is my least favorite household chore. I don’t really mind the sorting and washing, or even loading the dryer. The part I hate is folding it all and putting it away. I may re-start the dryer 3 times to “take the wrinkles out” before I get around to folding. Making my kids do their own really helps, but between running a business and a household, I still end up with piles of stuff to wash for my husband and I. If you hate laundry or simply don’t have a lot of time for it, here are 10 ways to at least keep it organized.

What is it with socks? Does the dryer actually eat them? We have a dog who likes to steal and eat socks, and then we’ll find them a few days later after they’ve gone through her inner works — and back out again. Ewww. But if you’re just fighting the battle of the sock-eating dryer, try this: grab some clothespins and clip socks together before throwing them in the hamper. Get the rust-proof kind for best results. Clip several pins onto the edge of each hamper so they’re always handy. Now your socks won’t get lost and mis-matched.
