I really hated doing laundry, especially as a little kid. Just because it needs be done, doesn't mean it needs to be a complicated procedure. This is how I've found peace with my laundry and other chores.
Recently, I put together my own "how to" manual for keeping track of car maintenance, and I thought I'd stick it here in case anyone else wants to put it in their "home management" notebook. Some of this you do DIY, e.g. engine and cabin filters, windshield wipers, etc. to save on shop costs.
Keep in mind the price guide provided match my car and chosen shops.
