TIP #99: Add folding and putting away time when you do Laundry

How much do you need to do one load of laundry? In general people consider that it is approximately 30 minutes to wash and 30 minutes to dry, so One hour.
The problem is in that hour it is not considered the time that you will need to fold and put away that load, what always create piles that simply accumulates and in general never get processed for the simple reason that we did not stop for a moment to think on how much time we need.
Think about the following:

  • Washer: 30 min
  • Dryer: 30 min
  • Fold: 15 min
  • Put Away: 15 min

That it is the difference with the initial calculation, 30 minutes. Many times may be even less than that, but in reality unless that we take that time in consideration what we are going to do is continue generating piles of clean laundry that are not going to be put away by themselves. The next time that you need to do laundry, remember to consider the third part of the process: Fold and Put Away.
