Laundry is taking over my life

This is why the GTD system is not working. Right now, there are two loads of laundry sitting next to the couch ready to be folded. There are two more up in the bedroom and there's a fifth down in the dryer. Oh, and there's a random basket of somewhat folded clothes in there too. And there's at least one or two more loads of laundry that need to be washed in the first place.

I've tried a number of different systems. Washing a load every day. It's the folding that breaks down. There's not enough time during the week. What happens then is the random basket. It doesn't take much for it to break down. Too many clothes to hang up and I'll give up. I actually don't mind doing laundry, but if I get too busy, then it piles up (literally) pretty quickly. The kids are almost old enough to pitch in and Mr. Geeky does help, but there still seems to be too much of it. I think we should limit ourselves to 7 outfits, then we'd just always wash at the end of the week because we'd have to. Sigh.
