Lots more laundry in the winter

It’s hard to miss the fact that I have to do a lot more laundry in the winter.

Now that I’m retired and living full-time-naked out in the country, I can get by without having to wash clothes for over a month.   During the winter it has to be done once a week or the laundry basket gets rather full.  All that unnecessary clothing in the summer just sits in my drawers taking a break until winter comes back.  Since Summer in Central Texas lasts for 8 months that leaves only 4 months of having to do the laundry.  It certainly saves on the energy bill.

  1. Same here (also central Texas). Going out in summer is generally just shorts, shirt, and sandals, with a hat for shade. Winter can be anything from the same as summer to shoes, socks, pants, shirt, sweater, coat, gloves and warm hat. Sometimes in the same day! At least I can still generally be nude around the house, and even do some outdoors work nude during the winter months.

  2. I obviously own too many clothes, as it takes me about three months to get through them before I need to wash them, but then I’m not wearing them out either, so I still have too many… Yes it is more in the Winter though.

  3. nods in agreement. I observe the same fun fact here in Spain. Winter is full of laundry and log fires, I think most people don’t notice this as they do a wash load every few days. Summer for me is full of hiking with the dog and forgetting where the socks even live.
