The Fabulous Laundromat!

Today on my "to do" list was "wash sleeping bags" which I knew would require a bigger washing machine that I don't have.

So with my quarters and sleeping bags in hand I trudged off to the laundromat dreading the whole experience. Well, was I wrong... I discovered that the laundromat is an amazing place and why didn't I go sooner. I know some of you will laugh and think I'm crazy, but hear me out.

Remember the days when a laundromat was filled with old, yellow, top loader washers that you put quarters in to make run? Well, not any more. Now they have really nice stainless steel front loader washers that can hold 2 sleeping bags at one time. Wow! - AND it's so handy because I didn't have to put my quarters into the machine - all I had to do was load money on a credit card type thing and use that at the washer/dryer, so slick.

I was so amazed (and yes, I am easily amused). So within 30 minutes my sleeping bags were washed and dried (oh, yeah, they also have these amazing huge dryers too) and it all cost me only $7.50 versus $40 I would have spent at the dry cleaners.

So that's my story for the day - signing off until next time...j


  1. I need to know where this laundromat is!! :) I have to do the same thing, and I only know of two around here and they are in scary areas of town...
    do tell!

  2. That's so funny!! I've been dreading the laundromat too. I guess it's time I checked ours out around here to see if they're as high-tech as yours!


I LOVE getting feedback on my posts...please leave me a note. Thank you!
