Washing Machine goodness!

12 posts in this topic

The local laundromat here closed a couple weeks ago and the next closest laundromat is a 20-30 minute drive away. x_x Well, this finally motivated us to get a washing machine. We always held off on getting one because of the hard water here and the fact that the house we rent has no washing machine hookup/drain. But seeing as the prices at the other laundromats are .50 cents to $2 more a load than what we are used to paying, plus the gas needed to drive to the laundromats, we figure as long as a washing machine lasts us 6 months it will pay for itself. Long story short, we got a washing machine! Yay! Bad news, landlord wouldn't come out for over a week to hook it up. Boo! chelle's dad came over this past weekend and we got it all set up and going. Yatta! We can now wash our clothes in our own home. ^__^ This will be the first weekend in 8 years in which I have not had to drive to a laundromat. :D

Lucky... I haven't had that convenience since 05 when I left my mom's trailer... The closest laundry mat to my place was closed down last year to make way for Walgreen's. The next now isn't that far away & cost half the price... ($4>$2.) Still I'll end up spending around $5 on munchies just because the vending machine is there...

You go girl! You go and do a load of Laundry. Its a lot easier at home, only work is loading and unloading, then folding. As for not doing yard work, I dont, whats the worst that could happen, more mice for fuzzyLOL

.....says the woman who obsesses about her plants and landscaping. *G*

And who says you have to do the laundry? Make everyone else share the job. If nothing else, do what my mom would do. We'd end up having to put loads from the washer to the dryer a lot, but when they came out of the dryer, she'd sort them and only fold hers and dad's clothes. We had our own piles and had to fold our own. And if they're too lazy to fold their own clothes and they get wrinkled, then they either learn to iron or wear it wrinkled. *nods*


Yesterday was the deadline for all complaints!

I agree with that. My parents did the same thing. Have family have involment, instead of classic blind eye, if you see laundry needs to be loaded or folded, help, dont leave it all up to Mom. Same thing with dishes.

The kids will do their own laundry. I always forced them to go to the laundromat with me whenever it was their clothes to wash. And yeah, they've already gotten used to wearing wrinkled clothes because they're too lazy to fold them.
