I was out with BF visiting his parents who recently moved into a new home. His mom is busy getting things in order and asked me where I thought she should hang her artwork. I was honored. Being a 1 month old authority on the subject, I was happy to give her my thoughts. I answered each one of her questions easily and honestly and began to wonder why no one had asked me before. I even wondered why I hadn’t put all of this knowledge to work around here. I obviously have solutions to some typical issues.
For instance, she showed me her linen shelf in her custom closet. She described it as messy. She wanted to get doors to cover the shelves and I simply said…”just turn the towels around.” She didn’t understand so I showed her. Turn the towels so you don’t see the folded edges.
Then I think to myself, “WHERE did this piece of knowledge come from?” I came home and went straight to my closet. It’s definitely not how I WAS storing my towels…or anything else for that matter. Needless to say, when I got home, I took my own advice and turned all my towels around. See…
After much thought, I recalled that that’s the way towels are displayed in the stores, but this piece of genius had never come to my conscious thoughts before, because I certainly had neglected to put it into practice. I suppose it was waiting for the perfect time. I felt so smart! She says, “I never thought of that.” Neither had I.”
As usual, I started by removing everything I didn’t want or need. I really hate to just toss so much stuff, but it couldn’t stay here. We’ll, after a little research, I learned that you can take used towels and sheets to animal shelters instead of throwing them away. They are usually used to create a soft bed for the animals. That’s where all the extras are going!
