…. 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 need you all to go forth and find me someone who wants to make over my closets…. FOR FREE! Yes, I said for free. Since I can easily make a direct correlation between closet organization and marital harmony, I thought perhaps there’s a company out there who wants to use me as a great example of the benefits of organization??!!! I’ve even thought of a new slogan… “Saving marriages one closet at a time??” No?
Oh well, if you can’t help me out…..hopefully I at least provided you with a little chuckle for the day!
