Works for me Wednesday

A few weeks ago, someone posted about buying colored undies for her hubby because colors get washed more than whites, etc. (thank you madridmom for writing back letting me know this was your WFMW tip!) Anyway, whites take longer to make a full load for me as well, so recently I purchased a large quantity (I'm guessing 18-20?) of white washcloths from the dollar store. I use these cloths for EVERYTHING - dusting, cleaning bathrooms, daily wiping of counters, spot mopping, etc., etc., ETC. I have so many of them, I just toss them into my whites, and it helps make for a larger white load sooner, since the colors get full fast enough (too fast if you ask me:))! Its also better for the environment! Works for me!

Hey, that was me you were referring to! Too cool to be posted about and it was my very first WFMW post too! Here's my blog link:

Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest;
Home-keeping hearts are happiest,
For those that wander they know not where
Are full of trouble and full of care;
To stay at home is best.

Weary and homesick and distressed,
They wander east, they wander west,
And are baffled and beaten and blown about
By the winds of the wilderness of doubt;
To stay at home is best.

Then stay at home, my heart, and rest;
The bird is safest in its nest;
O'er all that flutter their wings and fly
A hawk is hovering in the sky;
To stay at home is best.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
