My family of five creates mountains of laundry. As soon as I finish getting a few loads folded, there's a pile of dirty clothes waiting to be laundered.
Any tips on how I can get ahead?

I have the same problem. Our family of four also has an endless stream of washables. And, considering that at times I have three or four loads waiting to be folded, I haven't found the answer.
The mother of eight has laundry baskets for different groups — one for the little boys, one for the little girls, one for the twins and another for the parents.
That way once a wash load comes out of the dryer, it doesn't need to be sorted before it is folded and returned to the bedroom it came from.
As someone who spends a good deal of time sorting, I think investing in a wash bin for each member of my family seems like a logical way to eliminate that portion of the task. Perhaps, you'll try it too.
