How do I best manage laundry? (5 loads a week)

Malthe A.
I personally like to get up super early in the morning and throw the first load in immediately. Then, I set my watch or phone timer for the time remaining readout on the washer, helping me to make sure I return to the machine at the instant it finishes so I can be sure I'm getting each load done in the least amount of time possible. Seems like a little thing, but makes laundry time run like a well-oiled machine.
