August Habit #8 On The Right Schedule

Dear FlyLady,

If there’s one routine that has really gotten itself in place for me, it’s laundry. It’s on a schedule which makes it easy to get done.

As soon as I get up, on my way to plug in the coffee pot, I carry the day’s laundry to the washer and get it going. Within 45 minutes, while I’m doing some Bible meditation, it’ll be ready for the dryer, and within an hour ready to be taken out.

If there’s no time to fold it then and there, it gets laid out to avoid wrinkles, and right after breakfast it’s folded and put away.

What gets done on what day is also on schedule: Monday: darks; Tuesday: lights; Wednesday and/or Thursday, other items as needed; Friday, sheets and towels because I love to start the weekend with fresh linens on the bed and fluffy towels in that shiny bathroom on Friday night

This is such an ingrained routine in my life, that it’s almost dangerous for me to do the wash at any other time of day, since I’m likely to forget that it needs rebooting into the dryer or the folding process.
