    I’ve been doing #6 with the sheet sets for years now. People at the local laundromat smack their heads as they watch me fold up my bedding. More and more of them are now folding that way.

    I do love the idea of the tubes for cords! I have a very messy bin that has all my cords…going to have to start saving the rolls from t.p

    I wanted you to know that after reading about your father, I decided to adopt his “Choose Joy” philosophy in my life. I recently shared his philosophy with my Sister-In-Law when she was stressed out over her daughters wedding. When problems were encountered on the wedding day, we just smiled and said “Choose Joy”. We said it often that day and it made the stress go away very quickly. Thank you for sharing.
