I am kind of a hot mess most of the time, but I am also super organized most of the time. Total cognitive dissonance, I know, I live it. That being said, I have all sorts of little ideas for organization and tidiness. I am known by some (read: my family) as “The Good Idea Girl” and as I’ve mentioned before, I have plenty of organizational (and life) opinions. I plan to start sharing them with y’all from time to time (or on the regular if I can live in the organized part of my life for long enough). Here is the first idea:
Keep an apron in your car.
I do this. Specifically, in the door pocket thing on the driver’s side. You see, the hot mess side of my life often doesn’t make it out the door in the morning having finished breakfast (which is often coffee, but sometimes legit food). Many mornings I am drinking coffee and eating breakfast on my drive. Sometimes I am just really hungry and I am snacking on my drive to wherever. I cannot tell you how many times I have spilled on myself and been uber frustrated that I will then have to spend the day with schmotz on my clothes.
This is where the apron comes in handy. I wear it while I am driving and eating. If I spill, no biggie, I take the apron in and wash it that evening. Usually though, I never spill when wearing the apron. Isn’t that someone’s law of something?
Now, you have to know that even though I have super cute and sassy aprons, driving while wearing an apron might be almost as uncool as driving with your curlers in your hair (which in case you didn’t know, is very uncool). I only abide by this practice when I care about my outfit making it through the day looking like to organized and with it version of myself showed up that morning. Men: get a manly apron, or rock a sassy one, whatever you are into, but this whole apron to protect your nice tie and dress shirt, it is a pretty good idea. I encourage everyone to try it.
