Ditch Your Laundry: When Giving Up Makes Life Easier and Simpler
June 22, 2020
Household chores as a source of stress? It may sound funny, but it happens in every household. Some people are so busy, they barely have time to finish even the simplest of chores. Their houses in disarray, they become bothered by the clutter and the niggling knowledge that there are things they should do but couldn’t. Then we have the chronic procrastinators who flat out don’t want to do chores. They keep delaying having to clean up or do laundry, unknowingly building up guilt for behaving irresponsibly.
Chores (or more specifically, the uneven distribution of it) also cause immense stress and tension between couples, especially for those with children. Wives get stressed when husbands do the bare minimum when it comes to housework. Arguments emerge when one isn’t satisfied by how the other carried out a chore. These seem petty on the surface, but resentment could build up over time and lead to more serious outcomes.
So when the issue of who should do the laundry or when to do it becomes a recurring thing, you really ought to nip the problem in the bud.
Ditching the Problem Is Okay When the Problem Is Laundry
To be clear, we’re not talking about throwing out your dirty clothes because you can’t be bothered with loading the washer. Only that if you don’t have the time or desire to do the chore, take it off your to-do list and let others complete the work for you. It will come with extra cost, of course, but you get so much more in return.
- Time for yourself.
As home appliances, washing machines, and dryers are highly convenient, aren’t they? Correct. They make the work go so much faster, don’t they? Yes, they do. When you use washing machines, laundry is a cakewalk! No, that’s not entirely true.
Washing machines only serve to cut the washing time: it still takes time to complete the chore. In reality, it could even make laundry a much longer affair because you’re more likely to let your laundry pile up to warrant a load or two. So instead of getting the washing and drying done in two hours, it takes three or more hours of your weekend to complete the chore. It could take even longer (up to six hours) if you have a washer-dryer combo.
Whether it’s two, three, or six hours, you can free that up when you use a valet laundry service. The most you need to do is prepare the laundry for pick-up, which you can do in 20-30 minutes max. What to do with those two to six hours? You can catch up on some much-needed sleep, go to a spa, complete personal errands like bank runs or grocery shopping, and do other things you don’t have time for on the weekdays.
- Time for family and friends.
Another excellent way to spend your free time is spending it in the company of family and friends. Think about it. How many times have you told your kids you couldn’t join their play tea party? Before the pandemic started, how many times do you pass on driving them to the park or their weekend sports clinic because you needed to do laundry?
If given a choice, surely you’ll choose leisure time with the people dear and near you instead of counting the minutes until the next load and the next dryer spin. Your time is better spent getting to know your friends and creating happy memories with the people you love.
- No more arguments with your roommates or spouse and children.
People living together and married couples with children will agree that not having to fight about who has to do the laundry is a satisfying return on investment. The money you spend for a pick-up and delivery laundry service is more than worth it when you also get peace and harmony in your home.
