Excuse Me While I Attack the Laundry Situation

these clothes don't clean themselves.

I just dropped off 48 pounds of laundry to the wash & fold, along with my favorite dress that has orange marker all over it, and my king size comforter that one of my kids lovingly pissed all over. Weeks ago! I am also using 8 machines in my apartment's basement (4 washers, 4 dryers) because I was too embarrassed to bring so much clothes to the wash & fold. #richworldproblems

Later dudes!

  1. Oh how I miss New York, I haven't thought of dropping off my laundry in years! They used to fold the clothes so perfectly!

  2. This picture is amazing! And I too end up with obscene amounts of laundry. You have 3 kids. It's totally acceptable. ;)

  6. It's been raining like crazy here in Sydney and I'm in the same boat. The one dry sunny day in 8 days and I was too sick to get out of the house :(

  7. This always seems to happen to me too! Laundry can just get piled up so quickly! I have to say I am laughing out loud at my desk over your comforter situation... Haha!

  8. I am a laundry hater too. What I do to make it less painful is by having two laundry baskets one for colours and one for pants and darks (I don’t do whites shame on me) so I don’t have to do the dreaded sorting. And then I put all my socks and underwear in mesh bags. It’s the only way that I can do my laundry and remain sane.

  10. There are a million things I miss about NYC. Notably: delivery at all hours, unexpectedly bumping into old friends on the street, the noise, finding new shops all the time, good bagels.

    In my new life outside NY, though, I have my own washer and dryer. It's not enough, of course, to make up for the Brooklyn-shaped hole. But on days when I really miss the city, I remind myself what it was like to walk down 3 flights of stairs and cross the street with my huge bag of long-overdue laundry.

  12. good question! i didn't know what it was until i moved here. here's the official definition:
    Wash and fold service is a convenient method of sending out your laundry to be done by professionals. Unlike dry cleaning, this service launders your clothes in a washing machine and dryer similar to those you might have at home. Many busy people take advantage of a wash and fold service to save them time and reduce the hassle.

  14. I live with my boyfriend and we seriously rack up almost 5 loads of laundry a week. It's ridiculous! I hate hate hate laundry! We have no washer/dryer at home so we always lug it over to his parents house. Sometimes I'm so embarrassed about the amount so I take half of it to the laundromat. You're not alone!

    Oh how I LOVE laundry...no really I am one of those very odd people who enjoy the task. Although I do have to say your current load task sounds a bit overwhelming even to a laundry ho like me!
