They collect the clothes, gather the towels, strip the beds, and dump everything in the laundry room.

Totally crushing this!

They see the sauce stain on the shirt and remember they might need to add pizza sauce to the list so they go downstairs to check the pantry. The sauce is expired so they decide to inventory everything else. They notice the dishwasher didn't get started last night so they get a detergent pod.

Detergent reminds them of laundry but now there probably isn't time to do it anyway.

They'll sleep on the couch for three weeks.

Totally crushing this.
