Confessions of the Flip Fold

I have a confession to make.  I made it the other day in public and so I will now share with all of you.

I own a flip-fold.  You know...the as-seen-on-tv "device" that helps you fold your clothes?

It was a gift that I love and yes, I do use it.

My OCD knows no bounds.

There were plenty of giggles and are you seriouses, but then one of the women said something that was spectacular and the epitome of why it's good to neatly organize your clothes.

She said, "While I'm putting my clothes away, I'm not in a hurry so I do it neatly.  It takes more time, but when I'm getting ready in the morning, I'm always in a hurry and need to be able to see what I have.  By taking the time to put things away neatly, I save time while I'm getting ready which is where I really need it. "

YES, YES, YES!

THIS is why it's important to take the time to organize, give things a home and put them back when you're done with them.  Your things should be readily available to you when you need them, it makes your life easier.  You aren't flustered by not knowing where things are when you need them quickly at hand. 

Does this mean you need to use a flip-fold?  Nah...but it sure makes finding my t-shirt a little more effortless while I'm groggy and grabbing something to wear for my morning  work-out.
