September Savings: Do Laundry Once a Week
Unless you cloth diaper or have a large family, you can probably stand to only do laundry on a designated day. This way, you can wait until you have full loads. Also, you can take advantage of residual energy from each load.
I do the laundry on Saturdays, usually, but only after I've gone through the house and collected every item that needs to be washed. I only do between two and four loads of laundry a week, but it's just the two of us. I know some people find a weeknight works better. I don't like to run the wash machine or the dish washer unless someone is home, so I find the weekend works better for us.
