I like nael's suggestion of getting paper plates and plastic forks and spoons to use until you get things under control in the kitchen. For putting clothes away, I suggest working together. That's how we used to do it, I would wash and dry clothes then ask the dh to help me put away things. Doing a small load at a time will help! If you work together, it can be done quickly. I always put clothes baskets on the bed, so we can't get in bed until the clothes are put away. Works for us. Best wishes, and I hope some of these ideas people have shared will work for you.
