Remember this lovely sight?
Above are my amazingly awesome, perfectly pinnable hanging laundry baskets in my hall closet. I have six of them. They are better than chocolate. And Cheez-Its. (I’m in my 4th month of gluten-free eating, and it’s been way easier than I expected. Barring the lack of Cheez-Its. I LONG FOR THE CHEEZ-ITS.)
Except that…well, my amazingly awesome, perfectly pinnable hanging laundry baskets don’t look like that all the time. They pretty much look like this.
(And that’s on a good day. A really good one.)
Why does this happen, pray tell? Well, as many of you know, laundry is a beeeyotch to keep up with these days. A family of four keeps those baskets filled every. single. day. Also, my 7-year-old son who’s been reading for over four years seems to suddenly render himself illiterate when gazing at the labeled (P-TOUCH FTW) baskets.
Minor pet peeve. MINOR.
My major pet peeve is stain-treating. I can not deal. I hate it. I spend an exorbitant amount of time treating stains in my laundry room. I mean, you know, KIDS. Messy. Gah, stains. Enter Tide Pods. The little packets available at Target are a triple threat of detergent, stain remover, and brightener in one. Do you know what that means? No stain-treating beforehand. Glory glory hallelujah.
Now, come out with an unscented version and my dreams will come true.
Have you all entered the Little Bit Goes a Long Way Sweepstakes yet? A $300 Target giftcard is up for grabs, folks. I’ve been eating up the comments on how you all relax and enjoy the little things. So much so that I wanted to put together an old school Whoorl pie chart documenting the most popular ways to chill, but alas, I had to use that time to lecture my son on what the words “darks,” “colors,” and “lights” mean. Official rules are here.
