Don’t fight the small stuff
So my husband has a lot of ball caps. A whole big pile of ball caps in fact. He wears most of them and then of course he has some he never wears but could never part with either.
He has a bin in our front hallway closet for his caps but soon they started to spill over to the space beside.
(Just for the record he also has another stash in our bedroom closet but that’s another story)
Anyhoo I could have put my foot down, pouted, whined, pleaded with him to get rid of some of them but I decided not to do any of those things. Instead I simply added another bin and hid them all away.
I could have perhaps gone ahead and tossed a few myself, I’m almost certain he would never have missed them but that would not be respectful. They are his things after all and so what if he has a completely unhealthy attachment to his caps. I’m pretty sure he would say the same thing about me and all my hair supplies. So we live in harmony. Me with perfectly coiffed hair and him with his hair all covered up.
It’s all good.
Don’t fight the small stuff, it’s just not worth it.
PS: As you can see I also added some fun labels to my bins. They are part of Martha’s new line at Staples. I pretty much went crazy for it all and bought up a whole pile of the stuff the other day. You know, in the name of “research”. They called out to me, I couldn’t resist :) The blue part is elastic so they were so easy to attach. Read my blog post about where I got my bins here.
