I was recently asked how I stay on top of laundry. (Some weeks, I don’t, but we’ll pretend I do for the sake of this post.) My washer had a time delay setting on it which means I can load it before I go to work in the morning and it will be kicking off and ready for the dryer when I get home. I also often do the same with towels before I go to bed. If they are not folded before I leave for work, it’s not a crisis.
The other thing I do, which isn’t necessarily frugal, but is a time saver- I take almost all my ironing to the cleaners for press only. I dress business to business casual most days, so I have dry cleaning most weeks anyway. I also have my husband’s shirts pressed there.
Finally, I believe in chores. My child is responsible for folding the towels and helping put her clothes.
What do you to do save time on laundry?
