How To FINALLY Enjoy Doing The Laundry. I hate to do the laundry, and I avoid it at all costs. This is a great idea for helping to motivate me to do at least one load of laundry a day!

The problem…

I used to hate doing the laundry. It was the worst of the homemaking tasks in my opinion. I often put it off until I became overwhelmed by the sheer volume I had. Needless to say, this was not a good system.

I needed a change and I wasn’t sure how I would find it. I read articles on other people’s laundry systems: do one load all the way through or sort this way instead of that way. It all sounded good but I knew it wasn’t going to be the life changing system for me.

The change that made all the difference…

Every year at Christmas time I have a tradition when wrapping gifts for my children and husband. I sort the gifts into piles for each person. As I wrap the gifts for each one I pray for them for the coming year. I ask God to guide them and to guide me as a mother and wife.

This year as I was doing this it hit me; why was I waiting an entire year to do this? I seek God 365 days a year do I not? Why not meet him in my laundry room?

How one change has helped me to enjoy doing my laundry.

So I tasked myself with spending time in prayer as I fold each load of laundry. I started with my usual large load of laundry at the end of the week, I sorted into piles for each person and began.


I found myself wanting to fold laundry on a stressful day and enjoying getting the clothing out of the dryer and folding each morning. I began doing laundry daily instead of becoming overwhelmed. I felt relaxed instead of stressed out. It took me a while, but I was able to find the system that worked for me.

Laundry made easier with one simple trick!

Now on a daily basis, I do a load of laundry, sort the washed clothing into piles by person and as I fold I pray over it. I ask for help guiding their hearts in our home. I ask for patience as their teacher in our homeschool. I ask for God to use me to help encourage you! I go to him and I find peace with my laundry.

  1. This reminds me of when I am driving to work! My commute is 45 minutes and at 6:40am, it’s so dark and I’m tired, but after awhile, I made it time for me to have alone with God and it is something I look forward to now 🙂 Maybe I will had my laundry time to that too!! 😀

  2. Thank you for sharing this! I too hate laundry and seem to wait until we’re out of laundry to do it and it’s so overwhelming and time consuming that they mostly sit in baskets until we use them. I will definitely be trying this approach!

  3. Hi! Glad to learn from a fellow mom! I am a motger of 6, currently living in Sweden , and will be homeschooling my 4-year-old twins next year. Looking for tips and ideas!
