For me its every other week and I feel like that's excessive.

I try to every week.
Emphasis on the "try"...
Which is why my hamper is almost always full. And whenever I wash clothes, I only wash the top layer, so I only wear that shit. So it's like I'm wearing the same five things every fucking week.

We have 5 people in this house, including 2 young athletes and another younger soon-to-be-athlete... and one of those weird-o eco-friendly front-loader washers. (California drought, y'all.)
So... our washer is ALWAYS running.
Four of us -- everyone except the 5-year-old -- are competent, so, literally, the washing just "gets did". It just happens.
We don't use the dryer nearly as much, though. Basically nothing goes through there except underwear. We hang everything else so that it doesn't fade, shrink, rip, or deteriorate in whatever other way.
Oh, and, nice denim? NEVER wash it. Never ever ever.
A true fashionista puts her denim in the freezer.
Yes, I'm serious -- that's how you clean "nice" denim that's just been subjected to normal wear. I shit you not. Google it.1
