Saturday is laundry day. Some families do one load every day, and that's how they keep their laundry situation under control. For us, Saturday works. For one thing, Chad is usually not on a "normal" weekend schedule, so Saturday is hardly ever a day when we're too busy or out of town. For another, our electric plan allows us a cheaper rate on weekends, so we can run all our appliances all day long on Saturdays and save money.
