How much laundry do you do?

Posted by   + Show Post
We have 3 people in our family right now (baby #2 due in August!). I do diaper laundry (cloth diaper) 2-3 times a week, clothes laundry 2-3 times a week (more now since we to to the pool a few times a week), and sheets or towels 1-2 loads a week

So basically every day I do 1-4 loads of laundry. I try to have 1 or 2 laundry free days a week.

I feel like I do a ridiculous amount of laundry for only 3 people! We do it once a week and end up with anywhere from 3-6 loads depending if Mini is having a "model" week with outfit changes 3x a day.

We don't have enough clothes to last that long - DS has 5 pairs of pjs, I think, so that's when I do his laundry (out of pj time).

I'm pregnant & only bought 5 maternity t-shirts - I just can't imagine having a huge amount of t-shirts just for a few months. So we do the parent laundry every 4-5 days.

T-shirts are the one thing we have a lot of. Pants? Not so much but my husband and I double-wear pants.

A load a day keeps CHAOS away...we do several loads a day. Generally the washer and/or dryer are always running.

I do an average of 8 loads a week. More when I do all the linen (curtains, etc). It helps that my husband and I both war uniforms for work. Having three boys the laundry piles up fast!
