Do the Math
We have a family of seven, so we can accumulate quite a bit of dirty clothes fairly quickly. I find it easiest to TRY to do all the laundry once a week. A full day of laundry while we homeschool - starting before breakfast and often folding the last load the next day. My least favorite load to fold is the whites - socks, underwear, and DH's undershirts. So I got to thinking as I was folding: seven family members, seven days of laundry = 49 pairs of underwear to sort! And worse than that: seven family members, seven days of laundry, with two socks/day = 98 socks to sort & match! No wonder that load takes so long!
