We have a cat, a dog, and 2 bearded dragons.

Our cat, Maisy, spends most of the day on my windowsill, and my bed is right next to it. So as you can imagine, there's always a tonne load of white hair on my bed.
She then sleeps on my mums pillow on a night, yes she has to share her pillow with a cat! So more hair there!

And our dog sleeps on my mums bed. More hair!!!

The bearded dragons are the only things that don't leave a mess. Oh wait they've just pooed. I thought I could smell something :-/

The penny dropped--I have too many pairs of mated socks--who really needs 52 pairs of socks (and those are mated socks--not the odd ones whose mates have disappeared). Why do I have so many clothes? I work from home--I go out 1-2x week. Why do I have so many clothes (and why do I have 18 sets of scrubs--I love wearing them, but I'm not in the medical profession...).

I don't know why you have so many, but having so many is why you have too much laundry. If you can keep changing clothes without running out, the laundry tends to keep piling up.

Instead of having a load to do every so often, you end up with a whole day to have to devote to laundry. If you don't mind that, then don't worry about it.

I do mind--I have to hang my laundry because I don't have a dryer (that's another story--started on fire). So in the winter, I redocorate the house with laundry...I just didn't realize I had so many clothes! I just thought I had too much laundry.

Even I don't have that many scrubs...

I might have that many pairs of matched socks, counting my work socks and my winter socks. I have two underwear drawers, one for work and one for daily...the work are all white, for tax purposes.

Pajamas and nighties, that's what I have an overabundance of. Have my priorities right!

I have FOUR drawers of socks. Hmmm....I have more socks than you do PF!

Why do you think I wear scrubs? Great for gardening, painting, and, oh, yes, sleeping! But why do I have so many pairs?

Oh--PF, that explains why I have a PILE of scrubs on what is supposed to be the Lazy Boy waiting for me to haul upstairs (the scrubs--not the Lazy Boy--ouch!)...what should I wear instead? They are so comfy and I don't mind if I splash bleach on them...or if the chickens poo on them...that probably explains why I have 20-yr. old jeans that still look new...

I hear ya, CWS! I have only my own cloths to wash and I still dread doing it.

I've been procrastinating on it now for a week! I'm out of shirts! Tomorrow I HAVE to do laundry!

If you have a laundry basket that will hold about 1 load worth of laundry, when it is full, wash that load. One load of laundry every couple of days is much easier than having to spend a whole day doing laundry.
