My husband joined the Army at the end of his senior year of high school and spent six weeks of that summer right after graduation in basic training.
Of course that meant he was 18 years old and not very domestic. As I'm sure was the case with the rest of the guys too. They also didn't have much money.
So when it came time to do laundry for the first time, him and a buddy come up with a plan to try to save some money. They didn't have much to wash individually so why not wash it together?
Good idea, but how do we keep our clothes from getting mixed up?
I know, you put yours on the bottom. Then we'll put a couple towels and I'll put mine on top.
Another good idea, why didn't I think of that?!
I'm guessing those of you reading this know what happened when they ran the washer! They did not and were quite surprised when they opened it back up to find all their clothes had mixed together!
Live and learn......
