I do my laundry about every 2 weeks. This works out well for me because I have almost run out of underwear by then but not completely. I am very lucky to have laundry machines in my building and very many of them.

The one problem with the machines was the price $1.80. I can barely afford to live there and now I have to pay that much to wash my clothes. I sucked it up for 6 months until last week...

They raised the price to $2.00! I am not a happy Bean about this. I was told that sending my laundry out might be cheaper than doing it at my place.

Now I have a dilemma. Should I:
a) suck it up and wash my damn laundry already!

b) carry it on a bus and then walk an Ave. with it to go to my grandparents where it cost .25 a load.

c) bring it all the way out to Long Island for free laundry.

d) send it out and save time having to do it myself.

Please vote for your favorite choice.

Moral of the Story: Doing laundry sucks enough without having to pay an arm and a leg for water and a spin cycle!

D) send it out... life's too short to sit around waiting for your dryer cycle to finish :)

so umm... i am poor. i used to take my laundry on the bus from 52nd and 11th crosstown to 52nd and park ave. take it inside to work, then haul it to penn station, get on the train to seacauc nj, transfer to a train going to cornwall, get off, get in a car, drive home... all to do my wash for free at my convience. sadly i don't think i can do this anymore... so my vote:
take the bus to your grandparents. :)
