Making Me Happy This Week

I am always looking for ways to maximize space in our apartment. Every little bit helps me feel more content with our decision to delay buying a house. For the most part, I am content-then comes laundry day.

We are fortunate to have a laundry room on our floor. Still, I dream of the day when I have my own washing machine. It's not the cost so much as the coin. It's a hassle to come up with six quarters for a wash and another four for the dryer.

I have a very good drying rack that works well for large loads, but it takes up a lot of space to set up.

For small loads or hand washed items, I installed a Grundtal towel holder over my shower. It's a quick, out of the way spot to hang hand-washed fabric or a wet swim suit. This bathroom has a southern exposure and gets very warm. Things dry pretty quickly in there.

I love finding an easy, affordable solution to sniggly problems.

This is a great idea! I'm an "apartment dweller" and also long for my own washer/dryer :) I have an extra shower curtain rod. I put it up on laundry day for extra drying room.
