August Habit #29 Get A Head Start

I have finally figured out what works for my family (3 DC, DH and fur baby). I wash DH and my laundry at night and move to dryer in the morning. My DC’s (Dear children) laundry gets washed in the morning and moved to dryer in the early evening when we are all back home.

Sheets are washed on Sundays so we start the new week in clean bedding and a more restful sleep. I wash our fur baby’s bedding every other Sunday when she gets a bath.

One tip I have figured out that helps me so much is I reload the washing machine with detergent, softener, vinegar (I use it as bleach in all loads) and I put new dryer sheets and the dryer balls into the dryer as soon as I take a load out. This lets me be ready to start washing or drying without the possibility of forgetting something!

Hope that helps some FlyBabies!
