I Want a Hamply

Laundry - I don't enjoy doing it but it's one of the requirements for a life of cleanliness and good health.  I especially hate it when I don't have a washer/dryer unit in my apartment.  Oh, I miss my old place.  Currently, I live on the second floor and the laundry room is a located on the ground floor in a small detached building .  It's not that far but it's just a hassle when I procrastinate and end up doing more than two loads.  Lugging a basket full of clothes can be uncomfortable.

Originally, I thought I had solved this inconvenience by purchasing a 2-Tier All-Purpose Wheel Cart from Target  Later, I realized that it doesn't necessarily fall into the "all purpose" category.  I tend to take alot of things literally and gosh darnit this wheel cart from Target was one of them.  Boo!  Try stuffing this wire cart full of clothes including underwear (<--for the record, I hate using the word panty) and socks.  Those can easily fall out during my trip from Point A to Point B.  Embarrassing, right?  Plus, who really wants their dirty laundry visible and exposed for everyone to see?  Don't get me wrong.  I do like this cart.  It's very resourceful when I have tons of groceries bags to carry.   It saves me one or two trips of going back and forth between my car and my apartment.

Two or three weeks ago, I was doing laundry on a rainy Sunday morning.  I had about four loads to transport all the way down to the laundry room.  Since my laundry basket reached its capacity at two loads, I had to make two trips back and forth between my apartment and the laundry room.  It was very frustrating and time consuming.  But then, I spot another resident coming in with this beautiful looking thing on wheels.  It was far more better than my Farmer's Market wheel cart.  It was literally a hamper on wheels.  What a god sent!  As if a dolly and a hamper gave birth to this gorgeous baby named Hamply.  OMG!  "I want one of those!", I said to myself during the deep admiration.   She started to unload her laundry from this hamper with wheels into the washer.  Once her washer was up and running, she left the laundry room without the hamper with wheels.  I was so tempted to steal it and jet but that was just too mean.  I'm sure if she kept that up, some evil resident would have the guts and balls to steal it one day.  She should be careful in the future.  Just looking out for you neighbor chick....just looking out.

So, I finally had the time to look for it online this week.  I was so determined.  I found a similar one at Target but it was like $40.  That's way over my budget.  I looked some more and then.....I found it!  Ain't it pretty?  And what do you know!  It's actually called a Hamper with Wheels!   A tremendous thank you goes out to The Container Store for having this product available.  The best part is that it only cost $16.99.  What a bargain!  I'm purchasing this ASAP!  Life is good.  Who knows.  Laundry can one day be a fun chore for me now that I will soon be an owner of a Hamper with Wheels!  =)  Gotta love life's simple pleasures, right?
