Don’t get too excited boys, the image to the left was just to get your attention.  That, and it’s really hard to find a good fluff and fold image.

So I’m really lazy when it comes to doing laundry.  My guess is that you are pretty lazy too.  The solution to all this laziness?  Fluff and fold laundry.

What is it?  It’s a service provided by almost every dry cleaner where they do your laundry for you and they charge by the pound.  At first I used to think it was a crazy idea, but when I broke it down it really made sense.

First off, laundromats kind of suck.  I know you probably harbor that fantasy of meeting a super hot chick while you are doing laundry.  In reality, however, the only people you meet there are either smelly, homeless or straight-up weird.

Second, trying to get quarters is a bitch.  Sometimes the quarter machine works, sometimes it doesn’t.  You just end up having to go to the grocery, withdrawing money and waiting in line for them to give you a roll of quarters that somehow doesn’t get saved for the next time you do laundry.

Third – folding.  This is the most time consuming part about doing laundry in the first place.  Spending an hour folding your underwear in front of the crazy, smelly, homeless people is not my idea of a good time.

The last reason?  Pure economics.  I usually spent about $30 using the fluff and fold service.  Subtract the $10 that you would have spent anyway in quarters, that leaves roughly about $20 more than what you would have spent if you did the laundry yourself.  If you spend 2 hours doing laundry, that translates to about $10 an hour of your time cleaning your clothes.

Now isn’t $10 an hour a reasonable price to pay to spend that time watching the game instead?
