. Underwear Update
All right, my friends, its time to delve into your underwear drawer and draw out all those pieces of useful clothing. Some of them probably need mending (if you are apt to get to it), some of them are stained and need a little attention or a toss into the trash. Others are ailing from mis-shapenness and need replacing (if only for your self-confidence when wearing a lovely top). Let’s take a minute this week and update our underwear!
Then, take a good look at the underwear other family members are wearing. (Well, almost all other members of the family. Maybe just mention this topic to teenagers and husbands.) What updating do these pieces need?
There is nothing like the security of wearing nice, clean, comfortable underwear that is presentable, even though it is rarely seen. While we are at it, may I encourage you, if you need to shop for more, to buy up on underwear? You see, part of being organized is having the “store” at your home so you can conveniently pull out new underwear without leaving your bedroom. If you do need to make purchases, double your acquisitions and then don’t worry about this need for twice as long. One more place in your life that can be more organized.
So, take a peek and do a thoroughly sorting through your undies. Remember, upper underwear is not for retiring, it is for updating. What doesn’t work any more should be double-bagged with a good knot and discarded. What needs mending should be placed near a phone or the TV so you can get at it while enjoying other pleasures. What you love, double buy so you can keep from thinking about this project twice as long as usual. Good underwear week, my friends. Let’s get our inside and underside clothing looking at nice as the outsides!
