I favor projects that are free, produce zero waste, can be completed in under an hour and significantly optimize some part of our home. Turns out, there isn't an abundance of these projects. Or, any.

Aaron was away last week on business, and while he was on his five and a half hour flight home, I devised a perfect project. We were going to re-arrange the shelves in the laundry closet, to make space for a bar for Aaron's dress shirts to hang dry, thereby getting those shirts off of the shower rod of the hallway bathroom (excellent), and reducing our waste and expense from dry cleaning (also excellent).
I drew up some plans.
While Aaron reviewed my plans, I photographed the problem:
|A second bathroom that had become a semi-laundry room. How unsightly.|
|I wouldn't say this is a FEMA-scale disaster, but it needs improvement.|
|I wish it always looked like this!|
Step two, add husband with screwdriver.
Thrilled! It's a pleasure to wash Aaron's dress shirts now; they're so easy to hang up, and I'm elated we're not creating mounds of dry cleaning waste.
What do you think of the improvements? Any projects you've done recently that have been both free and wonderful in every way?
