Open House: How Often Do You Do Laundry?

The weekend's here and that means one thing — laundry. I don't subject myself to loads of linens all weekend long but Sundays have always been my day to tidy up a bit. Unfortunately, I've been finding myself soaking and folding more often than usual. I could almost even justify a daily wash but that might not be so green of me, would it? For now, I'll just stick to my one (and sometimes two) times a week. How often do you wash your wears? Tell me what your routine is by chiming in below!

Usually 3-4 times a week, whenever I've got enough for a small-med load. I'm single & it's easier for me to do it throughout the week than spending a block of time "doing laundry".

Ugh, I have to do it all the time. We suck at putting it away and sometimes end up doing it over again.. any tips?? I have 2 little (muddy) boys usually and one muddy husband. lol

Once a week, usually 2 loads (lights & darks). I live alone in an apartment; saving up and hunting for quarters keeps me from doing laundry any more frequently. About once a month I make a trip to the laundromat to get all my clothes, towels, bedding & floor mats clean.

Once a week, generally two loads--light and dark--usually Sundays. However, thinking of switching to Saturday to free up Sundays for slow-cooker/week lunch prep.

About once a month or once every other month. I get lazy and I too have a lot of clothes.

Once a week, but there will be a third family member joining us in October so it will probably pick up then ;)

Once a week. Then again, I'm only doing my own laundry so I can get away with once a week.

About once a week. We're a family of two -- me and hubbie.

Average about two times a week, that's for a family of six. In the Summer it's a little more often because of the towel usage from the pool.
