I just read a wonderful blog post titled "Laundry Problems Start With Clothes." The basic gist of it was that most of us have more clothes in our closets than we need (or at least than we need in any particular season)...and that this hampers (pun intended) our attempts to get the laundry under control.
Now, in Texas (and California too), we can't really put the summer clothes away come winter time...cause even in dead winter there may be need to wear shorts. But we can safely store away our winter clothes during summer (cause here there is NEVER need for a thick coat, turtleneck, or sweater in summer...well, except maybe in the chilly overly-air-conditioned buildings).
So, my question for this week's Aloha Friday is this:
- Have you put away your winter clothes yet?
I'm still in process. Part of the problem is that I tend to let the clothes I don't really need at the moment sit in the bottom of the hamper while I focus on washing the clothes I need right now. This means that a lot of the clothes I should be putting away are still needing cleaning (yes, this does speak to the sad state of my laundry situation). This week, I'm making a concerted effort to get down the the bottom of those hampers so I can finally put those clothes AWAY!
