…. all of hubby’s clutter that is….. But I bet I got your attention! :-)
I was going to post about something completely different today, perhaps more vacation stories, or about hubby’s “work out” digging holes this past weekend but….. I decided that I would take a moment to solicit a bit of help from all of you.
As you may have previously read if you’ve been following this blog for a while, hubby’s definition of clean and my definition of clean… do not necessary overlap.
If this statement is not sounding familiar, please take a moment and read this post: Clean Is Not Always Clean.
Ok, now that you’re back.. as you read that post, maybe you had a few moments where you gasped, or sighed or possibly even chuckled because either:
- You can’t believe that hubby could stow away that much crap in his drawer
- You wondered why anyone would have that much nasal spray
- You have your own secret drawer in your house that looks almost exactly like hubby’s
- Or, – and if this is you, I’m sorry – your spouse has a drawer somewhere, that you’re now thinking about opening, but you’re afraid because you are seriously worried about what you might find!
If answer #4 applies to you, I truly feel your pain.
As I mentioned, hubby like to employ the “sweeping method” of cleaning.. meaning if he rids a surface of items (no matter where or how they disappear) the surface is now “clean”. This method of course, carries no concern about the condition of the area where the items have been “swept into”. You saw from the drawer that the consequences can be significant.
Why am I rehashing old posts?
Well, it’s because hubby’s closet bears a certain resemblance to his drawer. Please see my evidence below:
And, more importantly, I have found a possible solution to this issue:
Custom Closet Organization.
Imagine my elation if we could have a storage solution in our closets that would provide “a place for everything”. This way all of hubby’s items would have a designated spot. I’m sure even hubby could put items away if he felt that there was a special place for all his stuff.
Now, you might be thinking.. but you have a “place” for the recyclables and hubby still puts the soda cans in the sink. And yes, you’d be correct with that statement. So, while I’m not certain that custom closets will solve this little marital challenge… I can only hope that it would take us a step closer to a solution!!
So my dear blog readers… I’ve entered us into a contest for a full closet overhaul for our home… And, I need your help!
If you have an account on Facebook and a free second … can you please click below to vote for us to win customer storage solutions from California Closets (you can click on the link below or the picture of hubby’s closet above). And, if you’re so inclined, you can actually vote once every 24 hours….since I know you have nothing better to do than think of me every day :-)
This contest has ended.. and unfortunately we did not win.
But THANK YOU for voting & trying to help us out!
And yes, I realize that I just used my blog to pimp us out for a contest… but if it’s any consolation, winning this contest is directly related to our marital harmony! And, hopefully I at least provided you with a little chuckle for the day!
