ikea.jpgToday I finally gave in and put away my laundry. It is my most dreaded chore and I am horrible at doing it. Only after traveling to my laundry room for the last week and seeing piles of clean laundry still in the baskets waiting to be folded, I realized the wrinkled mess I have created from my laziness. The thing I can’t stand is I’m one of those people that can ignore a problem on purpose for what seems like forever, but then if I somehow reach a place of awareness, I am suddenly obsessed with correcting it. This means that the unfolded laundry leads to putting it away, which leads to reorganizing my drawers, which leads to cleaning out my closet, which leads to arranging all clothes by color hue, which leads to where did my day go? Seriously, it took me hours. So during my cleaning frenzy, I became horrified at the sad state of my underwear drawer. Even with perfectly folding all my dainties and socks and arranging by color, it still looks too sloppy. By divine intervention, an IKEA catalog arrived in the mail, completely devoted to bedrooms. In it, I found the most perfect solution to my disorganization, the Komplement storage with compartments. It has little dividers to sort your socks, undergarments and other little numbers. Plus it can be washed in the gentle cycle in case you need to be extra clean. I am going to IKEA this weekend and buying some for my drawers, which will lead me to buying some for my husbands drawers, which will probably lead me to try to convince him that we need an entire wardrobe re-haul in our walk-in closet. Have you seen how spiffy their wardrobe storage systems are? Seeing things meticulously placed like that just makes me feel good!

    UGH–putting up laundry is one of my most dreaded chores too. I actually procrastinate so long sometimes that I forget I have things–like they have been in the laundry basket so long–I totally forgot about them.

    What a great idea. The drawer I had been keeping my small things in was far too small so this wouldn’t have been an option. But I might think about it now.
