Return to Home Organization Tips

Anyone remember when I gave some household tips on the old blog? I'm currently testing a pantry inventory list, but until then you'll have to make do with this: how to handle a husband who finds it impossible to put away pajamas every morning.

I finally gave up trying to persuade him to put his pajamas in his dresser. I could see it wasn't happening. We then came up with this gem: just put them in bed and I'll make the bed on top of the clothes. The pajamas must be laid fairly flat, but otherwise, no one can tell that there's a deflated, pajama-clad man in there!

When Chuck is ready for bed at night he knows exactly where to find his clothes. It's a win-win for sure.

(Obviously this works if you have a wife who refuses to put away pajamas, or maybe you hate doing it yourself.  It's fairly adaptable to every household situation.)


  1. Hmmm you should be grateful he's willing to go that far...I have to scoop Al's off the floor. But then I don't make the bed, EVER. I can't imagine making the bed daily, we're just happy to straighten the sheets and comforter :)

    Glad you found a great compromise!

  2. I am so behind that I just realized that you started a new blog....where does the time go? Great to see your updates:)
