If you own clothes , which I am certain you do, you’ll know that laundry is a part of daily life. Which is why I am a big fan of making, and using, a laundry schedule.
Schedules Lead to Less Stress
Using a schedule, for many household chores in addition to laundry, is a way to ensure we know what needs to be done, and don’t let important household chores fall through the cracks. When we get behind in our usual cleaning chores, our home lives immediately become more stressful as all we need to accomplish begins to weigh on us.
Laundry is an especially important chore because if you put it off, eventually you will run out of clean clothes, most likely at the most inconvenient time.
Let’s face it — when you have a family and a home, there are always going to be household tasks, like paying the bills, cleaning, cooking, and laundry that have to get done. Therefore, I believe keeping a schedule is a way to keep life in order and keep stress at bay.
Finding An Ideal Schedule
Each person’s circumstances are different, so each person’s schedule is going to be different. If you only have one or two people’s laundry to tackle, your laundry schedule is going to be much different than a family of six’s schedule.
First, keep track of how many loads of laundry you typically do in a week. Then, you’ll know how many loads you’ll need to schedule throughout the week.
Once you know this figure you can think about your weekly schedule. Are you incredibly busy on weekends but tend to spend weeknights at home? Or vice versa? Take your life into account when planning a laundry schedule.
Ask yourself some hard-hitting laundry questions: Would your weekends feel less stressful if you knew you had a closet full of clean clothes to choose from? Do you enjoy lazy Sunday afternoons with a washing machine churning in the background? Would you prefer to go into your work week knowing you do not have to worry about running out of underwear on Thursday?
I suggest devoting one or two time slots a week to laundry. That way you’ll know how much of your time needs to be devoted to cleaning your clothes and de-stressing your life. You’ll be amazed to find that knowing when and how your laundry is getting done truly does make a difference in your life.
