I heard the angels singing this week when my husband said, "Hey, why don't we keep my work clothes and running gear in the basement?" You see, he's self employed and cuts down trees all day long. He has these icky, dirty work clothes, loads of them, that I wash and schlep up two flights of stairs to put away.
Well, most of the time, I bat my eyelashes and ask him to carry the laundry baskets. He must of got tired of it. So win win for me. The clean work clothes stay right in the basement and I've gained a whole dresser in our bedroom.
Since I cleaned house and got rid of a car load of junk at the yard sale, I had freed up shelving space.
All the totes were previously owned and filled with junk that I no longer have. They fit nicely on the shelves and contain work jeans, sweatshirts, shirts and shorts. The clear bins contain work socks, running socks, workout pants, shorts and shirts.
Now I have the organizing bug bad. Do you think he needs labels on those totes? :)
