Yes, I don't own a washing machine, but there are times that I would really like to have one. Most of the time, I'm okay with not owning one.
Aside from saving electricity and saving water, here are some of the reasons why not owning a washing machine suits me really well:
- I have become very conscious with what I'm wearing, how I wear my clothes and how I used them.
- It's so easy to just take off your clothes and just put them in the hamper. Since I don't have washing machine, I do the "smell test". If it passes the test, then I can reuse them.
- I don't own much in terms of clothes. I don't shop much since it's hard to find an eco-friendly shops in Cebu. I don't support fast-fashion and I have become a full-pledge minimalist. You should see how empty my house is. I got rid of so much stuffs and I'm very happy with it.
