If you are doing laundry and have more than a load

If you are doing laundry and find you have just too much left to squeeze into the washer, do you run a second small load or save the remaining items until there is enough to fill the washer again?

I will split the load into 2-3 smaller, even sized loads. My washer cleans better if it's full but not stuffed.

Just wait for a full load unless there's something in particular I need washed then. I have at least a full load to do every day, so it doesn't take long to make that extra load.

I run smaller loads. If the load is too big, things don't get clean or rinse wrll. I also gave He equipment.

 I save until I have a full load.  Around here it doesn't take long.  I am always spilling stuff or falling.

In my old washer I would have said split it and make even sized loads, but last month I got a new washer and dryer set and the washer drum is a TON bigger than my old one, so I would wait until I had more laundry (unless it was something that had to be washed right away)

this is our exact strategy as well. Most days of the week we are doing a load of laundry..clothes, towels, or linens.

I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.

I am sorry to hear you fall all the time. I do tend to spill a lot. :)

Very nice about your new washer and dryer!  Front or top loading washer?

 My mom had a front load and had nothing but problems and then they got a top load and didn't have a problem at all! So we went with the top load
