Waiting for your laundry to wash at the laundromat can be about as exciting as watching paint dry. However, as more laundromats offer cable television and free wi-fi, people are finding more and more creative ways to pass the time. There are those who swear by catching up on email or work while they wait or streaming the latest episode of their favorite show on their phone. For those who aren't ready to give up a little downtime for work on the weekend, here are some creative ways to spend your laundromat time. For the best prices on coin operated washers and dryers in Raleigh, NC, call a distributor you can trust. Call T & L!
1. Check machines for coins that are stuck in the coin return. Who knows, you may find enough to grab a snack or soda from the vending machine.
2. Challenge bored little kids to play the arcade-style video games with you.
3. Call your mom or your grandparents. Phone calls to your extended family probably don't happen often enough. Besides, your mom will be excited you're doing your laundry.
4. Read a book or the newspaper. Catching up on what is going on in your area can be fun. You may find a cool festival or event to check out after you've finished your laundry.
5. Take a walk. If the laundromat is near your favorite coffee shop, take a quick walk to get a cup of coffee and squeeze in a little extra exercise.
6. Make your weekly grocery list. Multitask your way to domestic bliss and get the meal planning for the week done while you're doing your laundry.
7. Write out birthday cards or thank you notes. Taking the time to send a note always seems to fall to the bottom of the to-do list, but using your laundromat time to get these small chores done can help you stay on top of them.
8. Do some people watching. You never know what, or who, you may see.
9. Take a deck of cards along and make a new friend. Learn a new game or just play solitaire.
10. Help someone out with their laundry. Whether it's carrying a load of clothes to the car for a senior or helping a busy mom out with her kids, small acts of kindness are always a welcome distraction.
