Instead of tossing towels into the hamper after each use, hang them up to dry and use them again tomorrow. Buy robe hooks or re-purpose an old coat rack to hang in the bathroom, and designate a hook for everyone; most younger children can hang a towel on a hook much more easily than trying to fold and hang one over a traditional bar (which usually results in a mess of bunched-up towels everywhere.) 3. Be mindful of your other laundry. Those jeans from yesterday? Chances are they could probably be worn again before needing to be washed.

What the hell did that mean?
