Why The Frau’s great laundry bag is not so great

The Frau’s mother-in-law gave her something for Christmas that she thought was really great.

It’s called the Sort a Sack. It’s a laundry backpack. You sort your whites and darks in the bag’s two compartments and then you wear it down to the laundry room.

It’s really great because it allows The Frau to easily carry both her baby and her laundry down from the fifth floor to the third sub-basement where her neighbor may or may not be washing clothes. But not to worry if she is because the Sort a Sack also makes it easy to take your laundry and your baby back to where you started.

If you look at the Sort a Sack closely, you realize it was primarily designed for American college students who are living in dorms. There are instructions on how to wash whites and darks right on the bag.

So here’s the problem with the bag: The Frau is not in college. In fact, she’s more than a decade out. And that is why The Frau’s great laundry bag is not so great. Because she is still living in a situation to think that it is. That is all.

Oh man, that is cool! Right now I do the baby on the hip in a Moby Wrap and then the laundry basket behind me on my other hip, but that's hard! Does it stand up on its own?
Is it okay if I think it's cool when I'm only 8 years out of college? :P

That's amazing! I want want. I've been out of university for a while (okay, that's a lie: I just finished post-grad studies), but still. It's neater than a laundry basket.

I lived in Europe 3 years ago and also our apartment building had the laundry room in the basement. Even I didn't have a baby, I think one of those would have been great!

They are easy to use when traveling or camping and can provide convenience as well as space saving benefits for your laundry needs. Some styles have pockets for detergent, fabric softener sheets and even coins for the Laundromat.

However, one day, this douchebag whose clothes I had put in a hamper before took out my wet (still drying) clothes and threw them behind the machines. My clothes were so dusty/ covered in lint and whatever the hell else is back there I had to wash them again. I knew who the bastard was because he had an Ed Hardy/ TapOut looking shirt in the drier that he wore around campus all the time. To get more info please visit

Hi Yodel, very funny blog, got me a big smile. Am quite used myself to use a backpack for the heavy laundry, but that is a deuter hiking backpack. Yours is much more elegant for that purpose and it also fits Frau very well, quite trendy!! :-)

Before I used to order pick-up-services for my laundry via servics on websites like cosmobutler but I became independent and decided to take control of that again (and save the money :-) Quite smooth that service, however.

Hello guys

Well, in the winter time, individuals must wear more clothing to keep warm and protect themselves from the cold and rain. This is also good for our business because winter clothing will fill more washing and drying machines compared to summer clothing.See more at- Coin laundromats in Toronto
