Instead of saving it all to do on the weekends, strive to do your laundry gradually throughout the week. For me, this means doing 2-3 loads per day, but that amount will vary depending upon the size of your particular family. If you work outside the home, try to put a load on to wash in the morning before you leave to pop into the dryer when you return home and fold before bed. This is admittedly one more thing to add to your daily routine, but you will thank yourself for it when you are able to enjoy some R&R on the weekend instead of getting lost in the mounds of dirty clothes!

Thanks for sharing! Much needed in our house, and I have been wanting to do a weekly menu! Will definitely be doing this weekend! 🙂
Great tips! For meal planning, I started using emeals.com — It takes the thinking out and I can pick a plan that uses the special items at Aldi each week. Huge savings for us! The paper tip is KEY – especially when you have 3 of them bringing it home every day.
Off to check out your revamped painting to chalkboard!

You’ve hit on each and every one of the places I struggle with organization in! I love your hallway command center! With 4 little boys, that is exactly the sort of thing I need to do! Menu planning is definitely another place I need to step it up, and the paper clutter is never ending! And laundry-ugh. I am the worst! Thanks for these great tips…you’ve inspired me for the day!
