A Happy Life: Small Luxuries
For me, there are some good hacks for making sure I remain a happy individual. A lot of these are what I call small luxuries. When I spend so much time working and dealing with personal projects, I really value services that let me skip responsibilities or save time. This may mean taking a taxi, hiring a PA, or my most recent find: Wash and Fold Laundry.
I HATE doing laundry — it requires that I set my leisure time to a schedule. I can’t recommend highly enough delivery wash and fold. I call the day before, a really nice guy shows up the next morning and takes my bag full of laundry. The next morning the same guy comes back and gives me my laundry, clean, folded and packed so neatly.
The best part about this is the guy who runs the Wash and Fold I use is clearly running this himself and is incredibly nice. He has done same day turn-arounds for me (and my roommate and co-workers), he has brought laundry to my office and my house on a last minute change, and he has gotten to know me.
I can’t recommend his company enough, Alabaster Cleaners is AMAZING. If you want a wash+fold service in SF please give them a try. Tell Anwar that Tyler Willis sent you! You can call him to set a pickup time: (415) 368-9006
Hope you make use of this service, I literally couldn’t be happier (and I’ve heard the same from friends I’ve reffered).
