How often do you find yourself simultaneously trying to cook dinner, help your kids with their art project, sort laundry, get together with friends, take the dog to the vet, and pick up your high schooler from drama practice? This could very well be the daily for you. Every night, you barely make it to bed before 1am and as you fall asleep, you can’t help but notice your husband’s dirty socks all over the floor. You get a few hour of sleep, but feel like your to do list is never conquerable. This is the life though, right? The nice house, the kids, the dog, the friends. You’re living the dream, in California nonetheless.
Years ago, when you were imagining the life you wanted, you probably pictured the house overlooking the ocean, a dog, some cute kids, and maybe even a nice car. You most likely didn’t envision the dishes you would wash, the lawns that would need to be mowed, or the laundry. You didn’t think about the bed sheets, the towels, your son’s soccer jersey, your baby’s blowout diaper onesies, the dog bed, the piles and piles of clothes and household linens that would consume at least a few hours of each day.
Most likely you’ve already outsourced other chores, like lawn and pool care. Many Americans are starting to outsource more unwanted chores, and the benefits extend past just a clean basket of laundry. With The Laundry Room Express, you will find yourself with something more than just folded laundry, you will find yourself with extra time. Research shows that extra time can actually increase levels of happiness. An article from Science Daily mentions, “The study, led by researchers at the University of British Columbia and Harvard Business School, suggests that using money to buy free time — such as paying to delegate household chores like cleaning and cooking–is linked to greater life satisfaction.” The article goes on to discuss that while someone might feel as chore outsourcing could be a form of laziness, they suggest thinking of it as “buying [your] way out of unpleasant experiences.”
Furthermore, the article shows “the benefits of buying time aren’t just for wealthy people.” While spending extra money to have someone else do your laundry might seem like an extravagance, it’s really not. You’re simply allowing yourself to really live the life you spent years in college for. You’ve made it. It’s time to stop folding socks. It’s time to take the kids to Disneyland, to go camping, to go look for dolphins. You don’t have to waste another second doing something so menial.
