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 hampers..one 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.
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!!!!!!!!!!!!
