Is There Such a Thing As Being Too Organised?

Hands up – who amongst you are colour-coding your pegs to your washing?

And even if you’re not colour-coding to the colour of the fabric, can you resist using two matching pegs per article?

Sometimes it pays NOT to take organising TOO seriously!

This particular You Tube video made me laugh (no, I don’t think it’s actually meant to make me laugh).

Personally I think that folding underwear is a ‘little’ over organised. I think dividers or something like a shoebox in a drawer to separate to dump the undies neatly in to stop them getting lost amongst socks, bras, etc. is enough for most time-poor people, unless space is at a real premium or your packing for a trip away then I think rolling your undies is probably a better option.

Organising is supposed to be about creating time and reducing stress, and not about using up more of your time or inducing more stress to create perfection in a drawer that no-one looks in but you. Quite frankly I’d rather spend the time rolling sushi, at least I can eat the food of my labour after the time I put into it, but to each their own I guess.

If you are into some good old undie folding then let’s go with the master Marie Kondo . . . and spark ‘joy’ while you’re at it via this video “Marie Kondo Folds a Perfect Underwear Drawer.”

Go grab your undies, set the timer on your phone and see how long it takes you.

Your time starts…. (tick, tick, tick, tick) NOW!
