Can I live without in-suite laundry?

Help. I no longer know how to make decisions on my own without the internet.

I am going to be moving in February. I have never lived without in-suite (private) laundry in my life. I am not quite big-timer to justify sending socks and gonch out to be done. I am generally on the road about 30% of the time although this may increase. My laundry is made up of primarily undershirts, tees, socks and underwear, since I do send out my shirts and suits and slacks to be washed, of course, and I don't wash my denim, cause they rawz and all that.

Should I forgo the extra cost associated with renting a pad with in-suite laundry for a year until I buy my own place? Is it easy to adapt to not having a washer and dryer?

Cost in my city is generally a couple hundred more, because it means you're probably getting a renovated bathroom, kitchen and floors as well as the washing appliances, thanks to the real estate boom over the last decade and sheer number of apartment-to-condo conversions.

Sorry to hear that, boys. Someday you too will own enough underwear and socks that you need to worry about how you wash them.

If there is a common laundry room somewhere in your building, you will be fine.

If you have to go to an outside laundromat, it really sucks.

Having an in-suite laundry and going out to do laundry is like night and day.

Yeah, even communal washing machines are generally fine, unless you live in the projects or something. Going out to do laundry is a waste of time, avoid.

Depending on the building regs and available unit space, you might be able to install your own stuff if it matters that much to you.

Sharing a laundry is a recipe for someone else, or the crappy communal machine, to destroy your clothes. How many T-shirts must come out stained with rust or the fat old dude's mystery goo before you get tired of that business?

Sure, you can live without. And if money's tight, maybe you should. But I'd rather not.

Most people in the world would consider in-suite laundry something for rich people. FACT.

Is your new post count a foreshadowing of the likely effects of Obama's tax compromise?
