Leave a "How to Do Laundry Chart" in Your Control Journal

It's imperative that you've prepared in advance for the event that you are ill or have to be out of the house for an extended period of time. It's unreasonable to expect that anyone will do things the exact same way that you do them, or that they do as much as you do, especially if they're going unpaid. But it isn't unreasonable to ask someone who lives in your household to do the laundry if you're ill or out of town for more than a few days (yet have people left at home who ARE creating laundry to do). If you live alone, contact a trusted friend or family member to help you out in times of need. There's no shame in needing someone once in awhile to aid you with household chores. In times of grieving, loss or upheaval, knowing that you have instructions set aside for others to easily keep up your home will be a blessing. I've created a laundering list for you to help serve your household during these times.

If you have the space, you can also leave a copy of this list on your laundry room door or above the washer & dryer. This can actually work better than sticking it in your control journal. (Put it in a sheet protector to make sure it doesn't get stained & torn easily.) But it's entirely up to you where this list goes. As usual, I've shared my own more personalized list with you, but I know in advance that everyone does things differently. I know that you'll need to tweak my list to suit how you do things in your home & what you own yourself- but this is a starting point & I hope that it helps.

Here's to being an organized minimalist,
