Cleaning Out the Pantry (Again)
Cleaning Sounds Fun! (For, Like, 2 Seconds)
I also share how we’ve conquered laundry in our home:
Phantom Laundry – The Laundry Technique that is Rocking My World

Awesome!! Thanks for the encouragement! Laundry is almost done… I didn’t put them away because of a silly thing. That silly thing became a habit… and so I did not get the laundry done. Thanks for opening my eyes…
Ps.. Monday is laundry day here but I usually only get about 5 loads done… mostly of “what we need”. This next Monday I hope to keep up with the laundry and do at least 10 loads. I am slowly donating clothes that the kids don’t like or are to small. Even though I have though I do this I still have a lot and that tells me that I have a long way to go! :O)
This was A-mazing! My laundry is done and entirely put away! It took 3 days and I didn’t yet tackle the build up, but I did put away extra clean laundry from even 3 months ago! Thank you!
Dana White says
Yay! So glad to hear!
While doing laundry, our overflow pile was next to bedroom trash and in the trash was a seemingly good pair of jeans, after a quick hubby call, the jeans have a strategic hole, hence the trash. I was quite impressed with hubbys quick declutter. His response: just call me Toby-the-slob-comes-clean. (I may have mentioned your blog one or twice.. maybe)
Dana White says
I LOVE this!!! Go Toby!!
Thank you for this! We are trying so hard to get control of our laundry and have just 1 day to work on it. For years we have always done what we call the ‘rotation.’ Like you said, this is the clothing that we wear on a regular basis. We never get to the other things. Trying hard to get it all washed and get past that rotation!

Hi! I love your podcasts. One thing though–they are very quiet, even on max volume (I listen on my laptop with an extra speaker and if I am doing the dishes I can’t hear you over the water!). Any way to turn up your max volume?
Dana White says
Hi Brooke, I think I’ve fixed this now. I didn’t realize that my microphone was dying on me! I apologize!
Just found your podcast and I’ve been binge listening. I’ve decided to start implementing a laundry day and am very excited.. because the only person that runs out of clothes is me! All I ever do is the kids laundry it seems. Which is crazy because they have tons of clothes! So we’ll see how it goes.. my husband will probably fall over that I’m doing all his laundry too.. we married in our mid 30s and I’ve never done his laundry before =) I will be interested to see how much laundry we go through in a week. My twin girls are almost 4 and we are still getting through the potty accident phase with one of them. Plus they seem to want to change clothes all the time.. rambling now. anyways, loving your podcast!
So–I just found you about 4 months ago and I am on Podcast #69!! You have been motivating me in my quest of cleaning my home. I feel like we are two peas in a pod! So, after listening to this podcast, I realized that having one laundry day definitely works best for me. My laundry day is on Friday (with a little into Saturday AM) My kids wear uniforms so it is so nice to know that all of the uniforms are washed and clean once Monday rolls around and I don’t have to scramble mid-week trying to wash shirts and pants!! After officially announcing that my laundry day was Friday, my 10 year old son came up to me a few days later and said, “Mom, I know that you said that laundry day is Friday but there are a few things that I would love to wear more often so I was thinking that maybe I would learn how to do my laundry. I was thinking that Tuesdays might be the best for me because I can wear some of those things to Cadets at church on Wednesdays.” He had it all planned out! We went downstairs and I gave him a little tutorial. 🙂 He doesn’t do his laundry every week but I think that it is definitely a step of independence for this kid! Thanks again for all that you do!

I LOVE this!!! So great!!

This is one of my favorite podcasts so far; I have others. With this one, I really realize just how much we think alike. I always say that I work best with an end time. Thus, your project-based thinking speaks to me.
I would love to binge on your podcasts, but I don’t want such a good thing to end (this is not the same as doing laundry or dishes). ☺ I truly enjoy listening to you because what you’really talking about directly relates to where I am. Not to mention, I feel like we are in a conversation with one another.
Dana, I know my discovery of your podcasts and my comments are years after the fact (from when you recorded them). However, I pray you are doing well today.
Thank you for being obedient back then, because you continue to a blessings to many others today…and years to come.
I have really enjoyed listening to your podcast over the last week since I found it. I chuckle every time you explain one of your ‘hang ups’ for not completely finishing a task or chore because it is my exact thought process, so much so that I can usually finish your sentences.

I have been listening to your podcast for about 6 months and it has pretty much changed my life. I live with an “invisible disease” called PCOS and one of the worst things for me is pretty much constant brain fog (there is also chronic pain, but that is not as bad anymore because of some diet changes… but the brain fog is terrible).
I had just always figured that I was doomed to be a bad house keeper because I was always overwhelmed with all the work to be done, and just didn’t know where to start. I tried elaborate routines to help me remember, but just couldn’t ever keep it up. I no longer have large piles of laundry all over my house, and the dishes are usually under control, and I have decluttered about half of the garage that was piled high with boxes from 2 years ago when we moved in. I connected so well with your explanation of the slob mentality. It was just what I needed to know that I could do this, and then you gave the tools to use to do it!
I am starting a blog (the website is below, but I haven’t launched it yet because I’m not quite ready) related to living life with PCOS, and wanted to know if you would mind me linking to your blog/podcast occasionally when I talk about things that you have taught me to help me cope with this disease. Thank you so much for everything that you do!

I know you probably don’t get many comments on these anymore since they’ve been posted forever but I just found you in the summit earlier this month and I wanted to listen from the beginning. Laundry day in our house has been wonderful. We don’t sort because we don’t care and my husband will get the clothes from the hamper to the dryer and my job has been getting them away. Of course he does a load every Sunday so the folding part has always been our challenge. I took your advice and sat on the floor in front of the dryer last night and it was amazing how much faster the putting away went. Also, as a childless household, you blew my mind to think you get that many loads done in a day when I struggle with just one!
