I will fold 1-2 pieces of clothing at the dryer and walk them down the hallway to the bedrooms to put them away. Then I walk back down the hall to the laundry room and fold a few more and keep doing this until the whole load is done.Good exercise and I'm getting my house work done at the same time.
By the way, my 4 dogs get exercise too, because they follow me everywhere. Back and forth, back and forth.

Fold one, 10 jumping jacks, fold one, 10 arm curls, fold one, you get the picture. Sometimes it gets me motivated to do something more sustaine - but at least it breaks the monotony of both folding clothes and working out.
When I am folding clothes I walk in place, I take each thing as folded and put it away, not a stack individually. It gets the job done and really doesnt take much longer but I get lots of steps and walking in doing it.
