Good Intentions

All day yesterday, I was planning to go home after work and tackle the piles of clean laundry in the master bedroom.  I have no problem doing the laundry…until it comes to folding and putting away.  Sadly, my husband is no better, so we usually just leave the clean clothes in piles in the laundry baskets until we wear them and they make their way to the hampers to be washed again. All day, I was thinking of organizing my closet as I put away my clothes…until about 7pm, after we had eaten dinner, washed dishes, and cleaned the kitchen.  We then decided that we needed an ash bucket for our fireplace, so we ran to a couple of stores to find one.  Then, since we’ve had so little downtime during the holidays, I let my husband convince me to watch a couple episodes of his favorite show…which meant I went to bed later than planned, without hanging up the clothes.

If it had been any other chore, I probably wouldn’t have put it off, or if we had a tv in our bedroom, I could have multi-tasked it.  But such is life, and I am now planning to tackle it this afternoon, since I only work until noon today.

In my planning, I found this tip on Pinterest that I would like to implement:

I was really hoping I would be sharing a picture of my closet with all the hangers backwards instead of the original tip, but I really like this idea.  I did a big closet purge this past August after our wedding to make room in the master closet for my husband’s clothes, but I know there are still items that I rarely or maybe never wear.  I am pretty excited of the idea that by this time next year, they will be out!

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I have the same problem but it has gotten a lot better since I do at least one load of laundry a day. It is easier when there is just one basket to put away. My phone app is really helping. I have completed most of my lists this week. Planning to catch up on a few items this weekend.
