At my house I always have piles of laundry everywhere it never ends I can spend awhole day doing laundry and still not be caught up.
How many loads do you do a week? Do you fold and put it away immediately or do you end up living out of a basket lol

I do laundry as soon as there is a full load ( several times a week). I have separate bins for for dd's clothes, our stuff, towels, bedding and work attire, which keeps things organized. I do all bedding on Sat/Sun. It's folded and put away as soon as it comes out of the dryer. I can't stand laundry, so I try yo stay on top of it to make it less daunting!

I usually do 3-4 loads a week but I have huge machines. I fold/hang the stuff right out of the dryer, I can't stand when clean clothes get stuffed in a basket to get all wrinkled.

Here, a load is done everyday except Sundays and sometimes Saturdays.  It all depends.  But daily here it is done and it helps keep on top of it.  It gets folded and put away right away!  If it's lived out of a basket then ironing is a must and well, the less that laundry has to be done the better...lol.  So it has to be put away.

I feel like we do two to three loads some days and don't miss many days without a load. I think this is only since my son has been potty training though and our new house has main floor laundry. Before that, we probably did 3-4 in one week. I've tried keeping up with folding, and although the clean loads don't end up living on the couch anymore (thank God!), we're now keeping more in baskets in the laundry room. I'm pretty sure it's a no win situation.
