Get rid of most of your clothes. We only have about 1/2 to 3/4 of a load per person and that is a huge help. Make a list of what you need and shop for it in your closet and laundry. Everything else goes to goodwill. Even if everything is dirty, we can get it done in 4 loads (clothes for 4 people in 2 loads, sheets and towels in another load and diapers/cloth in another load)
Like the family closet idea but we have no such space for one anywhere in our tiny house.

This is my new system but seems to be working for me:
1. Get completely caught up on ALL laundry. Use an entire day if you must. Get everything washed and dried and put away.
2. Have one laundry basket outside the bedrooms. Every morning, everyone puts all dirty clothes into the basket. That basket is the load of laundry you do that day.
3. On change-the-sheets day or diapers day you'll have extra loads, but you should be able to keep your clothes laundry to one load a day. That's manageagle to wash, dry, and put away for me.
