Can't you just walk the basket into their room and pop it on their bed?
im a strange person because I have always actually enjoyed ironing. when the children were small I would wash each day, now there is only the two of us, I wash once a week. I would always fold and put away each days washing that same day. I would do any ironing at night after the little people were in bed. I never had enough baskets to allow for a mt foldmore to grow. I think having too many baskets is allowing too many bad habits. I have two clotheslines, one in the open yard and one under cover. they are both used often. a small clothes horse, and a dryer. the dryer is used only when needed. marie
I hate the way dh doesn't fold properly. I like things folded up neatly and he just doesn't do it to my liking so it's just easier on everyone if I put the washing away.
This is our routine too, almost everything dries overnight it's great, and I also don't iron unless it's hubby's uniform (I deliberately buy fabrics that don't need ironing!). Also, lately my Sard Wondersoap Bar has saved my life, rubbing the bar on under warm water on white school shirts = brand new school shirts Beats any 'soaker' out there!
ETA: I wish we had access to an outside line. There's one in the backyard that we are supposed to have access to, but a different family lives in that part of the property.

Reading this thread, I must be an environmental-vandal, because I have a massive Kleenmaid dryer which I use every day.
I am rather obsessional about laundry, and iron most things. I don't like how stiff and crunchy clothes are when they are line-dried. I throw in a few scented dryer-sheets, and they are soft and wrinkle-free. Much easier to fold nicely or iron then.
I just rotate the days between the 4 of us. I am probably more obsessive about my 2-year-old's clothes, because I like putting all her pink and girly clothes neatly in her wardrobe! It's fun!!
I handwash cardigans and jumpers, and little dresses, and hang them in her room on a clothes-horse. There's a heater in her room, so they dry quickly.
The beauty of a dryer is that clothes are ready to be put away 80 minutes after they're washed! I can get multiple loads done a day, then relax in the afternoon (and play on BubHub).
