do you ever find yourself……….UPDATED

Do you ever find yourself focusing on a problem that needs to be solved and ignoring everything else because you are so stuck on the problem? Did that sentence even make sense?

UPDATE at the end of the post!

Everyone on the planet knows I have a problem………okay so that was a total exaggeration, but my followers know what I mean…I have been attempting to find a solution to our vastly growing dirty clothes problem.

Oh, I know dirty clothes are not of great importance in this world…especially with all the political wagging the dog by the pseudo-president, the fallacies floating from the mouths of Faux Newscasters…the trauma of having your television programming interrupted by crazy weathermen ridiculously excited by a possible tornado……….but at the moment the dirty clothing situation is at the top of my worry list. Yes, it is shallow of me to be focused on dirty clothes…whoever decided I had a complex thought ….ever?

See, the problem is……….I created a nice laundry room.  Now I want a rational and out of the way area for the clothes to go pre-washing-machine. That isn’t too much to ask for, is it?

I already have two crappy plastic used to be in the bathroom behind the door so whenever you entered the bathroom you’d have to squeeze by……..and one in the bedroom “closet” which seriously is no one’s idea of what a closet should be. It’s 2 feet across and sixteen feet high and only a foot or so in depth so of course you can’t put anything in there…well, except a 1 1/2 ft by 1 1/2 ft laundry hamper.

But I’d have to drag both hampers through the house to the laundry area each time I had to do laundry.

So, I had the brilliant idea of putting them into the laundry room…where they don’t fit.

So, now there is a hamper in the doorway between the kitchen and the laundry room.

I need a system.

I want this……………

but I don’t have the room for it.

So, I have spent the past few days measuring the space, measuring baskets, measuring hampers and basically loosing my mind over it all.

Nothing fits.

But I am stubborn. It is one of my nicer qualities…………and I WILL find a solution that not only works, but that I can live with.

After all, a clothes hamper in the kitchen doorway just isn’t going to cut the mustard.

July 29, 2018: After searching online for ideas, after trying multiple bulky ways of fixing the “laundry problem” it only took one trip to Wally World with my buddy, Angie, to finally figure out what to do.

Two small curtain rods, four folding “crates ” in various colors, and four “S” hooks later, I have a solution!  TADA!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Good Gaaaaawd, Suze. Millions of children starving in East Bumphuck and you have a laundry problem. Just store your dirty laundry under the bed like I do. When the stench keeps me awake, then I know it’s time to do laundry. EEEEEHAW

  2. Have you got room for a mesh, hanging hamper? I use one, and at least it’s up off the floor and don’t take up floor space.

  5. On top of the washing machine, maybe? Then you could have a stool to reach up when you need to, and sit on when you don’t.

    1. lol………..oh how funny.


  6. I put the dirty clothes in a rolling hamper. Mine is round and metal. I’ve had it for at least 15 years. I had a plastic one too but Dear Son took it with him. It doesn’t take up much space and I don’t have to carry a heavy basket of dirty laundry across the house.

  7. Bags that you can see into, fabric if you need it for strength, and then you can carry them or even drag them through the house. Or never do laundry, which works in my house.

      1. It works for me. Laundry is about the only thing I don’t worry about, since I have bags and bags of clothes from the past decades, so all I would have to do is fish around in them until I find something that still fits, and if it needs to be washed, at least we have some good rain lately so I can go out in that.

  9. Mine hangs on a hook on the back of the laundry door – made by me, small enough but big enough (two hooks so easy to hang open – or not; no further req for the floordrobe of a prior respondent (under the bed!).

  10. How much laundry do you have. 😊 I will give you the answer to your problem, put your dirty laundry straight into the washing machine and when it gets full wash it. I buy colour run papers so if I have a mixed wash the colours don’t run. Simple really buttercup 🙄

    1. hummm, i kind of like that! except. George wears scrubs to work and we need to keep them separate from the rest of the clothing, so I’d still need one hamper or something for his work clothes…
