Oh, and we do NOT fold laundry in our house!! No way am I messing around with that. We hang up a few things that need to be, and iron here and there as needed, but that's it. Putting laundry away is super easy because each of the kids have their own bin! I dump their clothes out on their bedroom floor and they all grab their stuff and put it in their own bin.
Here they are all lined up in their closet. On the opposite side they have a jammy bin, a couple laundry bins, and an underwear and sock bin.
Each bin easily holds the amount of clothes that 3-4 dresser drawers would typically hold.
With the three of us, I try to get to the laundromat once every two weeks and use the GIANT 6 load washers because it is wayyy cheaper than a bunch of single loaders and takes way less time. If I am feeling like punishing myself, I go to my dads and just do a load that will last about four days or so (but I dislike going there, so it doesn't happen much.)
I always wished laundry folded itself and hopped into the appropriate drawers... Sigh.

I do laundry every time I think the basket in full. So usually 2-3 times a week. But I don't always fold it right away. Sometimes it can sit in the dryer for a couple of days. Doing laundry isn't the hard part. It's folding it and putting it away with two toddlers at your feet constantly!!
