Gabe and I both wear full suits for work, which creates for lots of acquired costs at the dry cleaner (*insert blah face here). Our world was changed when Brooks Brothers starting making non-iron shirts that eliminated the $1.99 fee after each and every wear with the convenience of washing them at home. Then, my checking account LOVED when Arrie told me about the non-iron shirts from Costco! Great material and shirt designs that Gabe loves and a third of the price!
It wasn't until a year of being married that I knew I even had an iron. My aunt was in town and she asked to borrow our iron ... and I said, "Hmm, I know we have one, but not sure where it is." I found it in THE PANTRY!! LOL. After finding the iron, my aunt was polite and used the bed to iron her clothes since I didn't own an ironing board probably thinking to herself ... This girl needs an ironing board!
Then, I started copying my aunt, and it became comfortable to just use the guest bed as an ironing board for the few shirts I attempted to iron myself and not take to the dry cleaners.
Here's where the confession comes ....
In actuality, I feel like a crazy lady for
never investing (the whopping $20)
on an ironing board!
SO, Gabe decided randomly last night that he was going to purchase one for the Smith household! He called on his way home from work and said, "Hey, I am buying an ironing board." I thought to myself ok ... and asked if I could buy one the following day so I could pick out the cover/pattern. His response was, "Nope, you've had four years to do that!" True.Story.
HAHAH -- Good point.
Well, there you have it. The Smith's now have an ironing board,
and we have LOVED it!
