The mound of clean clothes on your bed or on your family room floor got you down? Take five minutes to fold and put away clean clothes when they come out of the dryer. Not only will your clothes be less wrinkled, laundry will be less of a chore as you’ll be processing it as you go along.

Have others at home with you? Enlist their help in the folding! This is a great way for kids (even little ones!) to participate in household maintenance.

If you’re doing a number of loads in a row, fold as you go, but hold off on putting the clothes away until you’ve completed your laundry marathon. That way, you’ll only be putting clothes away one time instead of multiple.
