A friend of mine came over and gave some great pointers which have helped A LOT. They're so simple but I would have never thought of it on my own!
As soon as clothes are washed and dried, they go in a basket. And eventually (working on a better system for getting this done sooner since my baskets of clothes tend to sit on the couch longer than I'd like), it gets sorted into piles.
Both of my older girls can help do this. They can find their own clothes and make a pile for their stuff. I've made everything accessible for them to put away clothes except shirts and dresses which I hang for them. After they're done with that, they can usually sort through mine and Septtro's clothes. Although I have taken offense before when they thought his shirt was mine. :)
I also read a blog post not long after my third was born that helped me see laundry differently. Seriously, take a look.
This is Logann's drawer for onesies and leg warmers. I know it looks like organized chaos...well, I guess it sorta is. But it's out of sight (once the drawer is closed). :)
I use these bins for bottoms for my girls (skirts, shorts, leggings, and some pants). They can easily put things away themselves and find something to put on when I need them dressed.
There is still a lot of laundry but it doesn't take me as long to get through it now. I've basically stopped folding anything and everything I possibly can. Washcloths, underwear, shorts, pants, leggings, etc just get put in a drawer...or basket.
