Laundry Room Blues on Your Vacation

laundrybasket

The kids are enjoying a little free time at the pool.   You decide to help yourself out and avoid laundry overload when you return home.   You get everything together and head over to the laundry room only to catch the laundry room blues on your vacation!   All the machines are full and you have to wait for an available machine.  Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to know if any machines are open?   Well there is!   All of the laundry rooms at Walt Disney World are connected to the LaundryView System.   LaundryView is an internet based monitoring System that connects the laundry rooms through a Web browser.   All of the washers and dryers will show availability, in use, idle or out of order letting you know when it is the perfect time to grab a machine.   You can even leave your laundry and set an alert, by clicking on the Login link and entering your e-mail address and password.  You can click on the machine you are using and request notification when the cycle is finished.  If the laundry room you want to use is full, no worries, you can set up a notification to tell you when there are washers and dryers available.  Be sure to check out LaundryView before heading to the laundry room on your next vacation and avoid the laundry room blues!

Giveaway: Learn about Dropprice and have a chance to win $100 Target Gift Card

Dropprice Logo

Dropprice is an innovative startup that rewards moms for being social. Essentially, they empower moms to drop prices of kids & baby products with a click. The price continues dropping as more moms click “Drop the price”. Every week new promotions are launched and moms drop prices by sharing them on social media. See the chart below to understand the power moms have and how important it is to share with other moms.

Here is an example of how it work:

Moms can visit the link and click to “Drop the price” of the Fisher-Price Musical Dino. For example, in today’s promotion for the Musical Dino, it started out at $29.99 and for each mom that clicks, the price drops a bit. The price will continue to drop for each mom that participates until it reaches $15.00 (50% off). This promotion also includes free shipping anywhere in the US!

You have the option to share on social media and get others to clip “drop the price” or they can “buy now” for whatever the current price is. I really love this concept, and can’t wait to see all the products that they will feature in the future.

Amazon: Rent Manny on Demand for $0.99

If you want a cheap movie night without the hassle of having to stop at Redbox (and subsequently return the rental) then check out Manny from Amazon on Demand.  It’s just $.99 to rent!

How does Amazon Video Rentals work? When you purchase the movie rental, you have up to 30 days to start watching the movie. So even if you pay for it today (while it is such a great deal; normal rental price is $3.99 per movie), you could wait and watch it this weekend, 3 weeks from now, whatever fits into your schedule. Once you click the play button, you have 48 hours to finish watching your movie.

You can watch Amazon Rentals on your computer, Kindle Fire, Roku Player, TiVo and Select Blu-Ray players (that allow for streaming). I use a HDMI cable to hook my laptop into my television to watch the movie. It works great!

(Thanks SwagGrabber!)
