one of the ways we could’ve raised money for the house, was by starting a laundromat. why a laundromat, you ask?
well, when i lived in raleigh, i first bought a washer. then i tried to buy a dryer. my roommate had a friend who was trying to get rid of a washer and dryer. apparently he couldn’t sell them in enough time, so he sold me the set at the same price as i was going to pay for the dryer. so i had 2 washers and a dryer in raleigh.
nick needed to get a washer and dryer when he moved here. so, he too got a washer and dryer. then his dryer broke. and remained broken for 6 months. when i moved in, i fixed it, but found the capacity of his set to be lacking. on a separate note: how does one survive without a dryer in a townhome with no clothesline? i don’t know. maybe nick can guest post about that.
when we decided to move all of my stuff down, we just hauled down everything, including my washers and dryer. i planned on swapping my set in and selling his set. we had 5 washers and dryers in our one-car garage. i did have a picture of it, but it has since disappeared. it kind of looked like one of those low-budget appliance warehouses. at that point, we should’ve known that it was a start of a true business opportunity. alas, we were short sighted and sold 3 of them on craigslist.
two months later, we close on our new house (currently a duplex). and what comes with the house? oh yes, more washers and dryers.
yes, dear readers, nick and i could have been proud owners of 9 washers and dryers. definitely enough to start a laundromat, yes? if only we would have waited another month or so. as of right now, we only own 6. not quite enough to get that cash cow going. oh well.
anyone need a slightly used washer and/or dryer? i’ll give you a great discount.
