ahhhh  {sigh of relief}

I have just been given permission to be a slob.

WHAT?  Could you repeat that please?

I just read an organizing blog that gave me permission to be a slob, in areas that don’t count.  I wish I had saved the address!  I should have figured I’d need it to provide proof!

O-h, k-a-y…

How does that work for  a slob in recovery??

I can wad up the washcloths, and towels, and toss them into the linen closet.


I don’t have to fold my underwear.  (I had figured that one out on my own l-o-n-g ago!!)  I will spare you the visual on this one.  You’re welcome.

Don’t fold sheets, just stuff the set into the matching pillow case.

Folding the dish rags?  So last year.  Just toss them up there, willy-nilly.

There ya go!

There ya go!

Ahhhhhh! and the angels sang!!!

That’s one reason my clean laundry piles up.  I don’t want to spend my time making neat little folds, when it’s just gonna get unfolded soon.  (The same reasoning I use to avoid making my bed.)

So, now, I’ve been given permission to just do it like I wanted to in the first place!

It’s MY apartment!  I need to do what works for ME.  An AMAZING, and freeing concept.  Who woulda thunk?

When people come over, would they rather see a cleared off love seat?  Or a pile of clean laundry there, waiting to be “folded”?


Yes, Shirley, it's really empty!

Yes, Shirley, it’s really empty!

I’m thinking they might would rather sit down.

Now, to figure out what to do with my shirts that I don’t want to hang up….

  1. Ha! My daughter would so agree with you! I on the other hand have a pet peeve about linen closets in particular…everything has to be just right. Piles straight, folds and edges lined up, everything turned the same way… drives Rory crazy. LOL Thanks for sharing at the #HomeMattersParty – we’re looking forward to what you have to share next week. 🙂

  2. Ha, love it! When life gets really busy, I have been known to toss the clean towels into the cabinet and shut the door quickly!! Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday with us.
