How I Simplify Laundry

Remember when I shared my big goal for 2018? Turns out that goal has been easy to manifest in a lot of small but powerful ways. One of the home tasks I think gets completely blown out of proportion is laundry. I hear so many woman complain about the ‘mountains’ and ‘piles’ of laundry taking […]
