Is there a certain way?

Is there a certain way that you like to have your laundry folded?
I like my laundry folded very neatly and in a particular way. Needless to say, my SO does not fold my laundry or our son's. I think maybe I am a little obsessive about certain things.

  • OMG, too funny, I have been called all sorts of names by my sister who thinks I am "spastic" about the entire laundering process. Everything has to be done a certain way, down to the stacking of the folded laundry, I know sounds a bit OCD!?!?!

  • yes I do too! My hubby and I have a totally different idea of what organized looks like. Both of us are particular about the laundry but we like it different whoever does the laundry gets to pick how it is put away which is totally fine by me because he does more laundry than I do so I cant complain!!!

  • Well I'm too embarassed to not be anonymous....... my hubby does most of the laundry and i don't care squat how its folded..... sometimes when I do it, I just throw the clothes in the door and just close it. I have been things to do that fold laundry.

  • Lol, I do it as well. I'm so bad about it that if my hubby fold the laundry (which is rare) I go behind him and refold it my way and put it up...I'm lame I know. I just have to have it a certain way and he's a sloppy folder of laundry. :)

  • On the rare occasion that I am the one doing the laundry ( I am good at starting and switching but I HATE folding) I am picky about the way they are folded. SO ends up hanging most of his clothes anyways, but like his socks a certain way. I Fold my Tshirts in half longways and then in thirds the other way. He will not fold them this way. Oh and I match up my socks, but dont like them rolled together.
