Works Every Time

If your pants are wrinkled and you can’t iron to save your life, tell people they are made of a new type of linen fabric, imported, very expensive, but you can’t remember the name or its country of origin, and then quickly offer them an orange to distract them.

I’ve got an even better idea – delegate those ironing chores! I’ve recently discovered my eleven-year-old daughter loves to iron. This from the girl that wears a swimsuit 11 months out of the year, leaves her clothing – clean and dirty – in a pile on the floor of her room and cannot be bothered to hang up a wet towel. Who would have thought? You never know until you delegate!

I usually go to work looking like I’m wearing a crumpled paper grocery bag. Lately, with this whole green thing, it’s actually kind of trendy because by not ironing, I am saving energy and that makes me a frugalista, which is apparently very chic. In your face, crisply creased and highly wasteful perfectionists, momma’s comin to work looking like she slept in her clothes!Bam!
