August Habit #17 My Biggest Challenge

Dear FlyLady,

We have 4 kids ages 9, 5, 3, and 21 months and I am 27 weeks pregnant.

Laundry in our house is one of my biggest challenges. It always seems to be piling up.

Here is my best laundry idea to date!

I hung a small cork board near my dryer in my laundry room.

As I am folding my laundry I pin any unmatched socks on to the board. This keeps me from putting odd socks away in drawers and never finding a match, and if I haven’t found their mates within 30 days they are recycled into rags or tossed out.

Helps keep our sock drawers nice and tidy too.

Happy flying everyone!!
