Somehow with a semi-clear schedule filled with house duties, there always seems to be time for catching up on some Z’s. Also, there could be some super important news (that is never ending) on social media that you have to read and comment on. Or it could be anything else the world has to offer, right?
Laundry day in particular has drawbacks when you procrastinate getting to them when the clean clothes are getting low. Aside from the obvious that you’re playing with a potential “nude day out,” here are 3 major problems with delaying laundry day:
It is always in the belief of the procrastinator that there will be enough time to get to the task at hand. The problem with that theory is it doesn’t take into account the exorbitant amount of stress it puts on your life. For example, once you put off laundry for another activity, you are most likely not going to also factor in the amount of activities that are created during the day. Parents of young children, especially, (we know adults, too) have the most unpredictable schedule possible, considering the most volatile variable that a child possesses: the ability to learn the hard way.

If a spot stain remover was not used on stained clothes before they were put into the laundry basket, the longer you delay, the more likely those stains will be permanent. Permanent stains will mean one of two things: You or the kid(s) are going to find a way to act like the stain doesn’t exist, or you are going to be spending some extra cash on some new threads.
For these reasons, I’d say stay as stress free as possible and get those rags clean!
I will not bore you with technical terms of how electric voltage works. I’m sure all of you science buffs out there already know Ohm’s Law. So, when you want to save money on your energy bill, it’s easier to think Watts. In essence, the amount of money you save on energy depends on the...
