Keeping It Simple Saturday

A simple solution I learned this week:

Organizing dirty clothes as you go makes laundry SO MUCH EASIER! 

Earlier in the week, I read an interesting blog post which gave tips on easing into a laundry routine.  I made a trip to Wal-Mart and bought a few extra laundry baskets.  So, for the rest of the week, clothes were immediately sorted as they were taken off into their own little "color" basket.  All I have to do now is grab one basket a day, throw it in the wash first thing in the morning, and put it away at night.  I've been doing this for a few days now and I gotta say, wow...  This was a small but beneficial adjustment for me and my ever-growing loathe load of laundry.

Have a great weekend and keep it simple!

I'd love to hear more simple solutions or tricks that you've discovered for making housework a little more bearable.  Please email me your thoughts or comment below.  Your advice will be used in future blog posts with your permission.

We've sorting as we go since the "beginning" as it never made much sense to me to sort all at once. :P Let's see: Do I have a simple tip? Maybe this counts: I keep my kids' kitchen dishes within their reach so they can learn to serve themselves. I also do this for pantry food items, too.
Oh, and since I have a 2story, I keep a laundry basket upstairs too and it comes down and is emptied into the proper bins each morning.
I wish I had more, but maybe my life should be simpler first. :)
