Birthday gifts and laundry money

My parents gave me $50 for my birthday. I decided to go to Dick’s to finally buy a pair of Keen’s that I’ve been eyeing for a week or two. Here’s another example of my shopping prowess:

1 pair Black Keen Ashland Shoes ($90)
1 green Life is Good Baseball Cap ($20)
1 Nalgene Bottle ($10)

How much did I pay??? $50.74. Again, you see I am a rockstar…

However, today was the first time we had to do laundry since we moved into our apartment. Our apartment includes a very inadequate W/D combo…but the dryer does not work and it only holds about 4 items of clothing. We went to the laundromat with $8 in quarters, thinking that would be enough for 3 loads. I was blown away that the cheapest wash load was $3, and the cheapest dry load was $2.50. We had to get whites done for Taylor’s high-speed tonight, so we just did one load. Two hours later, I was dreaming of the days in the not-so-distant past where I could just throw in a load anytime. I’ve gotta come up with a better washing solution.
