I take laundry slacking to a new art form. I stopped sorting socks and underpants ages ago. That was the gateway. And then it turned into refusing to turn the clothes right-side-out. I'd fold them neatly in whatever form they appeared out of the dryer. And then I refused to put the clothes away - gave that job to the owner of aforementioned wrong-side-out clothing. When I saw that most of the time, the clothes ended up on the floor, I gave everybody a hamper, shoved the clean clothes in, and said, "HERE! Thank me for cleaning your grubbies and deal with it! . . . tomorrow. Let's go eat ice cream!"

So my kids have clean, fresh smelling clothes with a prolific amount of wrinkles. And ice cream stains.

A long time ago I tossed all my socks, bought one brand in white, one in black and never bought another different pair of socks again. Boring, I know, but there is never a sock issue here. If one goes bad I toss it, the other still has a bajillion matches in the drawer.

Now if you read my blog, you'll know I'm totally lying because of my multiple mis-match sock posts, BUT I did do this once and it was really successful while it lasted. :) A year or two, now I think socks are going to go up on the chopping block this week on my blog.
