It Works for Me: Ironing

In my very first “It Works for Me” post, I mentioned how awesome I am at washing, drying, and immediately folding and putting away my laundry.  NOT!  So I guess you could consider this a follow-up tip of sorts.  🙂

When you have mountains of wrinkly laundry, you get really good at ironing.  Every day.

I actually prefer to have freshly ironed clothes (I’ve been known to iron my workout shirts, and if you happened to attend a certain MOPs leadership retreat last summer, you may or may not have witnessed me ironing my clothes on my sleeping bag.  With a crafting iron.) so the fact that I have to iron every day doesn’t really bother me.  What does bother me is the need to set up and put away the ironing board each time.  So when we moved back to California and redesigned our closet, we made sure to leave room for a full-time ironing station.

***In case you’re wondering, we’ve used the Rubbermaid Home Free closet system to redesign our master closet, my craft studio closet, and our laundry room; and the boys’ closet is next on the list.  This is not a sponsored post, just my honest opinion… I can’t say enough good things about this system!  It’s easy to install, sturdy, and easy to change the configuration as your needs change.
