i see so many of you writing here about that never-ending chore. i remember when i had a mountain of laundry too -- until i started to designate that each kid did his own at about age 10-11. now that all are grown and gone, i usually do laundry on monday morning - a light load, a dark load, towels and sheets. that is it, that is all....for the whole week!!!
i wanted to give you hope for a future that does NOT include daily multiple loads in the washer/dryer.
I don't think I'll let my kids do their own laundry any time soon, I am uhm...particular when it comes to how it gets sorted. But, I do most of it in one day and they hang it up and put it away, and do the socks (he parts I hate and are the most time consuming).
I found just making it my #1 priority 1 day out of the week helps otherwise I just don't get around to it and it ends up hanging over the couch forever.
I dry most of it on the line and thought my 9 yo could handle hanging towels. I mean they are just rectangles! No. All wonky with random clips. Sapphire is 13 and can wash and dry her own clothes but I don't sort hers separately so it is just as easy for me to wash it.
