I am sure everyone gets a kick as soon they hear about clothes (well - thats not limited to that only)
Ok so my point was - I do get all excited about the topic as soon as I hear it but only till the point its about buying :)
I hate anything to do with clothes other than buying. I hate washing, hanging theM to dry, wrapping up, ironing, sorting them and arranging them in cupboards. I just cannot do that.
This is one thing which irritates me the most. And this is one thing that I am most embarrased about when i have guests over. Thank God for that attic area where i can dump everything. Its like a laundry house...clothes everywhere. And When I have friends over esp those who are first time visitors and all enthu about wanting to have a walk through of the house, I make sure I do not make any hint to another floor. I just escort them back to groud floor after they have had the first floor round and praised my house maintenance skills. (All for their own beneifit - I do not want them to get a shock and also I do not want to refrain myself from little boost in between all the guilt I live with everyday)
Ok Am spilling all the beans today.....
My cupboards are dumping box. You cannot find anything there - Just cannot!
My attic is like maze. You really need a navigation system to walk there and search something (I so wish every piece of cloth had a chip in it so I could trace it with GPRS - so much for the technology we are used to)
I never can find my socks after they go for washing. I keep buying new ones (Oops....now thats serious - Imagine teh day i will find out all - i will need a cupboard just for socks ;) ok slight exaggeration but nearly true)
There are times when my cupboard has only clothes which i do not wear and all the ones whic i wear are piled up for ironing.
Many a times i suddenly find something in that pile which i had totally forgotten about. i get pleasantly suprised to find it ( Imagine how long it lies there that I totally forgotthat I have somethign like that)
So many times including one today I remember certain tops only when I look at old pictures. And the search begins!
I wish someone would come up with use-and-throw clothes. Wear them once or perhaps twice and throw away. (Oh even the thought is sooo sooo relieving)
I know I know most of you will be saying - How can anyone be that unorganized!!
Believe me i won't say NO to any help offered to change it.
Ok there is one aspect of clothes other than buying that I like. I like stitching. :)
Two is enough - Right?
PS: There is a silk stole I am searching in my house for 2 years now .... all efforts in vain. I know I have it. I have never used it. I know i have not given it to anyone. If anyone has a clue - please help!!
