My landlord decided to replace the washer and dryer (the 1 washer and dryer for the entire building). I was excited until I saw he had also raised the price. Before- in machines that take only quarters-it would cost $1 to wash and 75c to dry- pretty reasonable but also half impossible to get the laundry done with so many other people vying for the 1 set of machines. Now it costs $2.00 to wash and $1.75 to dry- MORE THAN DOUBLE!!!! And still in quarters!!! Which means with an entire roll of quarters you can only do 2 loads of laundry. PAINFUL. Seriously. So last weekend I took Lily for her first visit to the laundr-o-mat which will have to do until the end of the month when we move into our new place.
I am not a huge fan of laundr-o-mats- mostly because I have to sit around while I am waiting for my laundry to be done rather than doing one of my million and one other chores at the same time- I love multi-tasking!!! Scratch that- without the skill of multi-tasking I would not be able to survive Hurricane Lily (and her best friend/partner in crime Hurricane Kendra). But it was kinda fun with Lily- she was my big helper- and believe it or not the laundry was done in just over an hour- so overall win win- oh yeah- and it was cheaper than doing it at the apartment- so win win win.
