I think I may like laundry more than some, but only because it is getting something clean, but I am always all for something to make anything more efficient. I think I would make an awesome professional organizer! This particular post did not have any new tips really for me until I saw the video. The video is a must watch, I loved how quickly he was able to hang up the shirts. I will be trying this! – Darla Lindauer

I am pretty sure this word is not the first word to come to mind when I get frustrated. Matter of fact, once I move past this post I may never remember the word again. I do not cuss, but I could think of a better shorter, easier-to-use word to express my frustrations. Ha-ha. My grandfather, who I never even heard raise his voice, used to have a huge garden in his backyard and I used to think I was his helper when I was about 4 years old. Once, he was planting his seed and he stepped away for a moment and I messed up the whole row by walking on it. I did not know I was not supposed to. Even then, he did not raise his voice. He simply said, “tin-can,” with a frustrated sound. I was so shocked I remembered it all these years. Maybe if he had said “Filiperndulous” I would have remembered it, too, but probably not. – Darla Lindauer
