An added benefit to having these buckets is clutter management. When my kids bring down a toy from their rooms and leave it lying around somewhere, we can stick it in the buckets and it is brought up with the clothes and put away at that time.
Now, if I could just figure out what to do with miscellaneous stuff like towels and sheets. I guess I should just fold them and put them away! Novel idea!
On another laundry note, here is a little tutorial on a neato way to fold underwear. My mom always folded them this way and I thought everyone did until I was married and gained a husband who did it differently. I have had friends see me fold clothes and ask me how I do it, so I thought it might be a good idea to share with my fellow laundry doers...
After that, you fold the waist band side a third of the way down.
and stick it in the pocket.
There you go. You now have created a little under- wear roll. It goes nice and neat in the drawer and stays folded.
Try it! You'll thank me, later, when you have a nice, organized underwear drawer. I promise this will be the last post about unmentionables. Maybe. And thanks to my Mom for teaching me neato things that make my life easier!
