What’s your motivation for immediately folding your clean laundry? I have four:

1) I don’t want to wear wrinkled clothes
2) I really don’t want to iron to get rid of the wrinkles I could have prevented
3) I don’t want to rewash my clothes to get rid of the wrinkles (again, I could have prevented). This just wastes water, detergent, and time.
4) I don’t want to be subconsciously stressed out by looking at the pile of laundry in the corner that needs to be folded day-in, day-out. This is also a big eye sore.

For those reasons, I try realllllly hard to immediately fold the laundry after it’s done in the dryer. And then put everything away in the closet.
