Oh, sure, I'm the crazy one.

I keep mulling over something my mom said while she was visiting over Christmas vacation. I was hauling up a sizeable basket of clean laundry from the basement and she started folding it.

Then she suggested I narrow down my clothes and have fewer of them. "Then you won't have so much laundry to fold," she concluded.

I'm still shaking my head. By my calculations, if I have half the pairs of underwear, aren't I doing laundry twice as often? How is this a benefit? I seriously do not get her logic.

And no, I'm not throwing out half my underwear.

how about you just not fold the laundry? then you wouldn't have to fold so much!

See, Andrea, you're just a problem-solver! I do like that idea.

You could just not wash it, but we don't want to go there.

Oh honey. Your mom sure comes up with some doozies. Please don't throw out underwear - unless it's ratty, doesn't fit, or is otherwise ugly.
