Has an older family member ever told you about the first time they heard about washing machines? The 18th century invention was popularized as a household appliance following World War II. Many mid century housewives thought there couldn’t be anything better – finally, there was a solution to aching shoulders and long days hand scrubbing household linens and family clothes.
Now, in the 21st century, there’s something even better than Grandma’s favorite invention. Now, you don’t even need your own machine to have clean laundry. With the click of a button on an app, your laundry can be picked up from your home and delivered within 24 hours. It’s like having your own personal butler! The best thing about this system is that not only are your belongings laundered to your specification and request, but also, you save time and consequently increase life satisfaction and overall happiness.
Recently conducted research shows that increases in time has correlative relationship to levels of happiness. An article from Science Daily says, “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 further mentions “the benefits of buying time aren’t just for wealthy people.” You don’t have to be rich to save time, and everyone deserves to find satisfaction. In fact, think about how much money and time you would save and the hassle you would avoid if you didn’t have to worry about the constant washing machine and dryer maintenance and upkeep. You don’t have to worry about buying laundry detergent or stain treatments. Folding laundry will be memories fo the past.
Instead, you’ll be less stressed, and ready for whatever each day brings. You might finally have time to tour the Ronald Reagan Library, take a joy ride along the ocean and smell the citrus trees, maybe you’ll take a hike with some friends, or simply sit at home watching Grey’s Anatomy.
Many people can only dream of living in California, we’re all super lucky to be close to the beach, Hollywood, hiking trails, and even great deals at LAX. Make the most of every moment in one of the world’s most idyllic locations. Forget the laundry, and bring on the life enriching adventure.
