Wasting Time at the Laundromat

I don’t know of anyone who wants to sit at a laundromat while they wait on their clothes to get washed and then dried.  BORING.  It feels like such a waste of time!  Surely there is something you’d rather be doing or isn’t there something that NEEDS your attention?  What many people don’t realize is that there are other options!  Yes, you could go buy a washer and dryer but maybe your situation doesn’t allow for that purchase right now.  Or maybe you don’t have the room for a washer and dryer where you live.  Whatever the reason you find yourself at the Laundromat, if you’re like most people, you dread spending hours of your day doing the laundry.  However, there are other options!

One option is to have your Mom or some relative (or a really good friend!) wash your clothes and fold them for you.  But I don’t know of many Moms or friends who are going to do that for very long!   But my favorite option and the best one of all, is to drop your clothes off at one of the Magic Cleaners locations and let THEM do all the work! They will wash your clothes, dry them and even fold them!  The best part is if something needs pressing, they’ll do a better job than you might have done!  Your clothes will come back to you smelling fresh and looking like new.  You’ll wonder why you didn’t think of this before!

Another important thing to think about is how much time you are saving for yourself.  You don’t have to wait in the laundromat, and you don’t have to iron your clothes!   If you break it down into how valuable your time is, you’ll realize that simple changes like letting someone else do the laundry, can have lasting benefits for your life.  Take that extra 2 or 3 hours a week and enroll in a class!  Learn to speak another language or learn a new skill.  Visit your long-lost family members or use that time to workout at a gym.

You won’t look back and say ‘ugh, I spent all afternoon at the Laundromat again!’, but will say something like ‘Wow I had such a great afternoon after I dropped my laundry off at Magic Cleaners’!
