Sort laundry into personal baskets
Cut down on laundry piles and eliminate small, water-wasting loads. Give each family member two laundry baskets. Keep one in their bedroom for dirty clothes, and the other in the laundry room for clean. As clothes come out of the dryer, fold and sort into each person’s basket. Every other day, switch bins so that the dirty items make it into the wash and the clean ones are put away in a timely fashion.
