Save laundry time, money and wear on towels by hanging them up to dry after baths and using two or three days. Washcloths are the only thing that really gets dirty when you bathe, so buy multi-packs at the dollar store for fresh washcloths for every shower and face wash.
Using a towel twice instead of once can cut laundry in half! You just need a towel rack for each person in the family. Color coding towels can help kids remember theirs. I've found washcloths at Dollar Genera for 18 for $4 so it's easy to keep a big supply, just toss in rag bag when they get worn.
