I read that the average American spends 7 hours a week on laundry.
Since DH and DD aren't doing the laundry, I do an extra 7 hours for each of them! That brings my grand total to about 20 hours, which is probably about right when you add up all the time spent gathering/sorting/washing/drying/folding/sorting/putting away laundry.
2 loads each day during the week gets it all done, or else it takes ALL weekend.
I don't have a washer or dryer in my condo, but there's a laundry room down the hall with one washer, one dryer, and there are 9 other condos in the building, so I can't just do the laundry whenever. Since I pay per load, I am accutely aware of the number of loads I do.
I've been taking advantage of the wash/dry/fold service at the laundromat down the street lately. It costs me about $35 for a week's worth of clothes - it's 85 cents per pound, and worth every penny! I do the sheets and towels myself though - that's the easy part.
DD is almost 13 months and quite a mess... I don't bother with bibs because the food is everywhere.
DH wears a lot of clothes; he bikes to work, then changes into work clothes, then changes back to his bike clothes, changes into casual clothes at home, then something else to sleep in; he also has special clothes for running, karate, hiking, etc.
My goal for myself is a minimalist wardrobe - if I only have 2-3 loads worth of clothes, how out of hand can it get?
Our kitties leave hair everywhere, but I'm getting better at getting the clothes put away (or at least high up) so I don't have to rewash everything after the furballs have slept in the hampers full of clean clothes.
