Do I really HAVE to put away the clean laundry? Can't we just get it off the top of the dryer when we need it?

I hate putting away laundry. My least favorite household chore.

  • I'm sitting on a bed covered in clean, folded laundry right now - dreading the thought of putting it away! I don't know why, but putting it away is the WORST part of the job. Same with dishes... I have no problem doing the laundry or dishes, but once they are clean, the idea of putting them away turns my stomach... Don't know why.

  • I use down right trickery to get the kids to put the laundry away. I wash it, dry it and fold it and then who ever is on laundry duty for the week thinks they are getting it easy when they only have to put it away. LOL Really, I don't mind doing the rest so it's no big deal to me.
