I don’t know how families do it. With just two people, laundry feels never ending. I don’t mind doing laundry (I love my washer and dryer); I hate putting it away. I’m bad at folding; I don’t have enough drawer space for t-shirts as it is. I certainly don’t have room for another piece of furniture to put clothes in.
On laundry day, I am seriously tempted by the six item clothing diet, or something similar, just to cut the work down. If I only had six items I wore to work, I’d only have six things to hang up.
