#365 Getting dressed out of the dryer or laundry basket

Hands up if you’ve ever been a bachelor.

People, if you’ve been there you know the lazy-boned joy of sleeping in a bed half-covered in clothes, eating breakfast over the sink to avoid using one of your three plates, and getting dressed straight outta the dryer or laundry basket.

Yeah, you know how it goes: Alarm clock buzzes and you’re suddenly grog-sliding around your cramped apartment as a Bedhead Nude.  Next it’s time to pop open the dryer door or eyeball the assorted clump of clean clothes in a basket and start fishing through your wrinkly clothes for a wrinkly wardrobe.

Balled-up underwear, twisted T-shirts, and crumpled jeans that are still a bit wet fit you jusssssst fine and before you know it you’re looking hot to trot.

Now just make sure when you pull off this classic move you take a second to nod in the mirror and smile slowly while congratulating yourself on saving some valuable time. Ironing shirts, rolling up socks, folding underwear?

No thanks.

We’d rather fill our days with an extra five minutes of

      1. Same style? Try just grabbing the first two socks you get your hands on. If you set the bar low enough, you’re sure to succeed!

  1. I JUST talked about this last week! Well, I Tweeted about it, but whatever. My dryer definitely serves an unofficial double-duty as a dresser. I don’t even go to my drawers/closet half the time, I just wander through the kitchen to the laundry closet. I’m glad to hear that it’s considered AWESOME and not just … lame. Thanks for the lifestyle validation! ;)

  2. This technique is also frequently employed by grad students. You can tell which days I had to be the TA for a class by the degree of wrinkled my outfit is.

  3. Love clothes from the dryer!

    Completely missed the last couple days as I’ve been down with stomach flu which means I missed out on Thanksgiving turkey dinner and the trimmings. :( So, for me, awesome will be when I’m feeling better again and can eat something besides crackers and jello.

  4. I hate folding clothes. I don’t mind doing the laundry, but folding it is just boring. I currently have the whites still in the dryer due to my laziness. As the week goes by, we will get our socks and whatnot out of the dryer…until I break down and fold em or until its time to do laundry again and I need the dryer.

  5. “The lazy-boned joy of sleeping on a bed full of clothes” <- this is SO PERFECT! I love that feeling, somehow. It makes the bed more comfy. More MINE. It is almost certainly going to happen when I return from my semester abroad and have to spend days preparing all my clothing to move back to campus…

  6. Oh, definitely awesome. This is one of the things I miss about university! Just grabbing my laundry from the dryer and putting on an outfit straight from there. Now that I’m older, all of my clothes seem to require ironing once they’ve been washed. :(

  7. I’ve been doing this for the past month. If somethings very wrinkly, I just stick in a damp washcloth and run the dryer again—steam magic!

  8. I’m female and have been married for 6 years and we still get dressed out of the dryer or laundry basket on a fairly regular basis. Of course, I’m also a grad student, so maybe that explains it. :)

Even though this is certainly brand new , nevertheless soon after registering your site, this intellect has exploded extensively. Allow all of us to take hold of ones rss to help keep in touch with at all probable messages Sincere understand but will pass it on to help admirers and my individual are living members

  10. Especially can’t wait for the favs to be clean. Why own so many choices anyway…ridiculous, really!
