    My Money-saving Masterplan

    No i do not seperate my laundry. To be fair to myself, this is mainly because each wash and dry is one pound each and if i were to seperate meticulously into whites, lights and darks that would be four pounds out of my alcohol fund (including drying). So when I'm doing laundry...

    Even After Pink Socks...

    I have been doing good lately though, after my girlfriend talked to me about it, I always seem to do things better and/or the right way once she mentions them. (Please keep being a good influence, honey<3) I've done like the last three weeks of laundry seperating it each time...

    Not Practical For Me (or Logical)

    If I've got a massive amount of wash to do, I'll separate out the linens and let them have their own load.  Otherwise, I don't bother.  Aside from the whole not-wanting-to spend-energy-sorting thing, I've got some reasons to not sort.For one, I'm doing wash for one.  I can see...

    Whites? Darks? (bet I Got Your Attention!!! :0)

    Who's got time? Cold water works fine too. Just don't overload.  Who can actually afford materials that will bleed into others anyway?

    No Need to With Cold Water

    I never separate my darks/colors and whites. I just throw all of it in to the super capacity washer, use cold water and then I only have one load to deal with. Works just fine. Clothes are still clean LOL I only occasionally use hot water for a load of sheets/towels...

    I don't have many clothes anyway, bc mostly I wear my work clothes... The stuff I have doesn't give out color, so I just throw everything in one set and wash. My clothes aren't any Armani or Gucci anyway, so it doesn't matter. Besides, it's a waste of electricity and water. I'm...

    Just Get It Over With

    I keep up with it - but only because my distaste for stinky clothes outweighs my distaste for laundry-ing.  Just throw it in and get out of there.  I usually end up all wrinkled because I hate going back to get it - but again, my distaste for walking around without...

    I Don't Really Separate...

    I don't really separate or fold my laundry.  There is a "clean" pile by my bed and a dirty pile in the bathroom.  I just sort of turn the clean pile every couple days like compost to keep it fresh.
