On the subject of not being bothered, I was reading something recently on time-saving ways to keep your house tidy. Although, for me it would be energy-saving ways. My energy has to be rationed out throughout the week, y'know.
One piece of advice was something like this:
"Replace all of your clothes hangers for the wooden ones with rubber ends. They may be more expensive, but it will mean that you never have to waste time picking up all of the items of clothing which have fallen to the floor as a result of slipping off the hanger..."
Replace all of your hangers with wooden ones?! If I had that much money, I'd pay for a house-keeper! No no no. I have a much better (and much cheaper) way of getting your clothes to stay on the hanger. Ready to hear it?
That wide-necked jumper which just won't stay put (I had to basically tie it to the hanger because it fell to the floor for each photo attempt):
Rubber bands. Put them on the ends of the clothes hanger:
Wrap them around so that they cross over, covering more of the hanger:
That jumper will now cling to the rubber of the elastic bands.
Was this a revelation for you? It's going to change your life. Just like this video has changed my life. Please don't tell me that you've all been doing this for years and I'm the last one to catch on...
