Are your clothes wrinkled from sitting in the basket after coming out of the dryer? Do you have a hard time getting your clothes from the basket to the closet and drawers? Has your laundry basket become the go-to place for clean clothes?
If so, my friend, you may be suffering from what I call LBS – Laundry Basket Syndrome.
And girl, you’ve got to get a hold of this problem and nip it in the bud!
I know, because this is what I do. I put the laundry in, get it clean and dry, and then I put it in the laundry basket saying, “I’ll get that later.” But I never do. A few days go by and we’re living out of the laundry basket, but the shirt I want to wear is wrinkled. Since I don’t like to iron, I just find something else and the cycle continues. I usually just end up washing all the clothes again because they get dumped out and I don’t know what’s clean or dirty anymore.
Clearly, this is a super bad habit, and I’d really like to quit it. I want to kick LBS to the curb! How about you?
If so, read on…
Mary Challenge: Read Galatians 6:9 – what is the reward for persevering? As you’re doing laundry today, think about this verse.
Martha Challenge: See how many loads of laundry you can do today, but do not move on to the next load until the first is put away!
What is your biggest laundry challenge?
