We will have laundry facilities in our room. The hotel gives you enough detergent for one load but then you have to pay for more. I don't want to BUY laundry detergent down there because it's liquid and I don't want to have to carry it home.
So, for $5 I picked up a package of the Purex all-in-one detergent/softener/dryer sheets. There are 24 sheets in a package and you can throw a sheet into your washer and then transfer it to your dryer with your wet clothes. It's certainly more expensive than buying a large bottle of detergent, but it's convenient, efficient, and super easy and compact enough to throw into a suit case! And I believe it's a financially sound decision because I can easily bring the rest home to use...but for some reason I feel like those things CAN'T be good for your washer and dryer!
This will allow us to pack less because we can do laundry easily and for free while there.
I also borrowed some Cascade dishwasher capsules from my mom for the same reason...well, I didn't borrow them I guess...I TOOK them...or she GAVE them to me :)
Lastly for money Monday I have to say I'm SUPER GRATEFUL for a student and his family for scoring us 3 FREE Universal Tickets!! That rocks! It saved us $300! Thanks guys!
I have been feeling so overwhelmed and stressed lately, so thinking about vacation is moving me a long. If you think about it, please say a prayer for good health and safe travel for us, as well as good weather and a refreshing time away. We really need it!
