Do you do a bit of laundry every day, or do you set aside a certain day of each week to tackle this task?

I do a load a few days a week. Sometimes I'll do two loads back to back and combine them in the dryer (I have a lot of things that air dry so 2 wash loads often makes 1 dryer load). Its just dh and me so not nearly as much laundry as in the days when my kids were young. Back then I typically did a load every day.

Every single day if I don't want to spend all day Saturday and Sunday doing laundry.  We finally got DH enough work pants that I don't have to do his laundry every other day (HVAC tech and very dirty clothes!)  I also have a teenager that changes clothes at least 2-3 times a day that no, does not do her own laundry, only puts it away.  I do have 2 little ones and the littlest one loves to help me do laundry, so at least I do have some help once in a while.

I do a load every few days.  Usually not more than two in a day.  When I still had 3 kids at home, I used to wait and it took an entire day over the weekend.  So partially because Flylady, I try to stay on top of it, even if the loads are small. 

My bad habbit is leaving it all folded in the living room.  I hate putting it away.  And Aryl, get that teen to wash her own clothes!
