Thermal underwear

I decided that this winter to buy thermal underwear and wear it under my regular clothes at home so that I can turn the thermostat down a couple of degrees. I’m concerned about the high price of heating the place this winter, and I think that by investing in some thermal underwear that I will be doing a good thing for the environment and a good thing for my checkbook! I’ve found some thermal underwear that is smooth and silky to the touch that is only $10 for a top, and $10 for the bottom, which seems like a very good price at the local big discount department store.

I don’t like the waffle-weave thermal underwear because it is always too small, no matter how large a size I buy! The pants only come down about half-way between my ankles and knees; I like the pants to come all the way to my ankles. The kind that I like used to be called “Cuddleduds” but now it seems they’ve been renamed to “WarmWear.” I don’t care – they will be comfy and help keep me warm!

Washer/dryer combination

My brother is renting a studio apartment and has decided that he needs a washer and dryer. Well, you can imagine how limited his space is – so I told him that I’ve seen washer/dryer combinations that are specifically for small spaces. These machines are a combination machine that first washes, and then dries the clothes without having to move the clothes from one machine to another – you put the dirty clothes in, and when the clothes come out they are clean and dry. I think that is really cool! If you are the type of person that wants to only do one load of laundry a day, that would be a major convenience to have!

Life would be so much easier

Have you ever wished that your employer would provide a company uniform for employees to wear at the companies expense? And by that I don’t mean a vest to wear, I mean an entire outfit, shirt, shoes, pants, the whole nine yards. Life would be so much easier if I could simply obtain a work outfit from an online scrubs uniform store and have the company reimburse for the expense. Scrubs are both modest and comfortable to wear. If everyone wore a uniform to work, you would never be having to suffer the bad taste of the person who wears their skirts or shorts way too short and their shirts way too low in the neck.

I know that a lot of people would object, saying that they want the freedom to choose what they wear, to be able to express their individuality, but I think it would be a great benefit for people to not have to spend a lot of money on work clothes. It would be even better if the company had a uniform laundry service. My uncle used to work as an automobile mechanic in a well known shop and his company provided the mechanics with work clothes and even had them laundered. I think that would be a wonderful benefit to have, don’t you?

To donate or to take to a consignment shop

I’ve decided that it is time for me to clean out my closet. There are some very old clothes that I will probably never wear again that is just taking up valuable space that I need. I recently gained about twenty pounds and I have a hunch that new weight just might be here to stay. I now have clothes in my closet that are at least two sizes too small and more than ten years old, so I really should get rid of them.

Hopefully I’ll find some time this weekend to go through my closet and weed out those clothes and determine whether to throw them away, hand them down to a friend, or donate them to a charity, or try a local consignment shop. I have a good friend that told me that there is a new consignment shop in town that she has taken her old clothes to, and she has bought a few things there as well. I think I’ll check that out – if I can get a little bit of money out of these clothes that I can’t wear anymore that would be awesome!
