With renovations complete from the sewer back-up in the basement, our washer is leaking! Luckily it is doing so only in the drawer below the machine, so it’s contained. It also meant an early Christmas shopping trip (that is what I’m calling it). To buy a new washer and dryer set.
Luckily they were on sale, but still a pretty penny as they are much larger in capacity than our current set. In fact the washer is so deep I will need a step stool just to reach the bottom, but it will handle the king-sized bedding of ours. No more trips to the laundry mat to get our bedding done! I just hope I don’t end up upside down in it, waiting for my husband to come home to rescue me.
Aside from that, it will be nice to be able to do less loads of laundry when I get behind, which happens more than it should! I’m not a fan of laundry, and even less a fan of folding and putting away, but it is simply one of those things that has to get done.
One way that I have saved a lot on what gets piled up is purging, EVERYONE’S clothes!. With limited clothing, it makes me more on top of getting the wash done and ensures that I don’t have 6 baskets to do at once because there is an over-abundance of clean clothes to pick from. It has also helped on the space that the clothes take up in closets and drawers.
As as the kids have run out of cold weather pants to wear, it’s off to do a load now! Yay???
