I learned something about myself this morning…

Here's the fastest way to iron a shirt.

…and it’s wrong on so many levels!

Lynnette... age 4... proud as can be with a new ironing playset on Christmas morning.I am perfectly content to get the wrinkles out of my cotton shirt (by holding a blow-dryer on the wrinkly spots WHILE I’m wearing it) rather than take the time to press with an iron.

And we’re talking a shirt for WORK here… not just something I threw on to go run errands!

Creative Laziness?
It just seemed easier this morning when I was blow-drying my hair, and I noticed my far-too-wrinkly shirt needed ironing. But who has the time???

So I just moved the blow dryer a few inches lower, and the wrinkles came right out! (…so long as I stretched the shirt at the same time I was applying the heat)

…Laziness, taken to a whole new level?

That, or multi-tasking at its finest.


I like to help people find unique ways to do things that will save time & money -- so I write about "outside the box" Household Tips and Life Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I'm super-organized. And I LOVE to clean! I even enjoy doing laundry (but not ironing). I’m also a lifelong dog owner -- so I often share my favorite tips for living with dogs inside your home (like smart home design choices and dog-friendly cleaning & decorating ideas). Career-wise, I've been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started... and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). Prior to that, I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I'm truly passionate about instead. For example, I've worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo -- to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. When I’m not cleaning, organizing, decorating, or fixing something… you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I've personally written over 200 articles about cleaning, organization, DIY repairs, and household hacks on this site! A few have over 2M shares; many others have over 100K shares.
