Laundry Organization Tips to Make Life Easier

Laundry. We dread it and loathe it and procrastinate doing it until, suddenly, we have a mountain of clothes and an empty closet. Stop delaying! Try these 10 hacks and take some pain out of the laundry. You won't believe how easy it is.

Sort your clothes as you change.

If you have the space, designate labeled laundry baskets for each type of clothing or color.

Use mesh bags and never lose underwear or socks again.

Give each family member their own bag and have them put their individual undergarments and socks in their bag. Throw the bags in the laundry, and when it's time to sort, give them their bag back to sort

Install an adjustable system.
