I'd been putting off laundry for weeks. I don't have a washer / dryer in my apartment so have to lug the heavy load to the laundry mat (though it is only across the street).
Feeling particularly lazy today, I discovered Alabaster Cleaners. (http://www.alabastercleaners.com/index.html) I gave them a call and 5 minutes later they picked up my load promising to have it back by 6pm!
Amazing. A little afraid what the final bill will be but once in a while this stuff is so worth it :)
