I should correct that - I don't hate stuffing dirty clothes into a giant washing machine drum. No, that's the easy part. I always think to myself, "I could be beating this against a rock...washing machines are awesome." It's the folding that kills me.
I hate folding laundry so much that I attempt to outsource at every given opportunity. Brian does a fair share of folding, and our once-a-week-babysitter has proven her worth by diligently and peacefully taking on this task. I cannot emphasize how much I love Sierra, and it's not just because she takes great care of the Bear. It's mainly because she makes my yoga pants seem crisp and new again.
So after the Container Store Blogger Party on Thursday, I noticed that in our bags 'o' swag they had given us something called a "Flip Fold Jr." It essentially is a giant piece of molded green plastic that promises "the perfect folded shirt!" I hate molded plastic. I kind of looked at it, considered throwing it away, and then on a whim, decided to find out if my dislike for molded plastic is greater than my dislike for folding t-shirts.
And what I found is...I no longer dislike either. In fact, I'm kind of in love with my Flip Fold Jr. I love it so much I spent Mother's Day reorganizing parts of our dresser. I was like, in the zone. The folding zone.
Let me explain.
This is a Flip Fold Jr.
This is what it looked like before:
Thank you, Container Store!
The Flip Fold Jr. retails for $21.99 and can be found at your local Container Store. Don't have one in your area? You can buy it online at www.containerstore.com.
Despite what you may think, I was not compensated for this blog post in any way (other than scoring a cool swag bag.) I'm just so darn excited about loving laundry again that I wanted to share it with you fine people.
