"Idea's of Inspiration from my wife"

Just a little mess, Right?
   This Idea came from me being so disorganized and having stuff scattered in my our way. I just don't understand what was wrong, but I am a man.  I am trying to recycle and save us money on gardening supplies. I am trying to do my part in being a good steward to the planet God has given us. I just didn't understand, just because I was piling all my jugs, (Garden Cloche's), up beside the back door on the patio! I guess tripping over them and being an eye soar may have been my answer.
   I either had to clean them up or they were getting thrown away, so I remembered how my grandma used to store them. She strong them up on baling twine but since I didn't have any baling twine, I used what I had laying around the house and try to kill two birds with one stone by cleaning up other things I had kept to use at another time!

                                                                  
               
  1. I found a piece of old 1/4" nylon rope, I had. I cut the rope to the length I needed and burnt the end with a torch so that it wouldn't unravel. Note: Be careful, I almost caught the garage on fire, please don't tell the wife!
Look like 1 of the 3 used!

2. I tied a spike that I had found laying in the street onto one end of the rope, and look I told you wonderful wife we should keep things cause we might use them one day! :-)

3. I then strong the rope through the handles of the milk jogs and tied a loop on the end to hand them with.

4. And know I can hang them on the patio and we won't trip over them. They are all nice and neat now!

Can u find the toad?


     Well she probably won't like them hanging on the patio, so I guess I will hang them in my garden shed. So, you know the old saying, "happy wife, happy life!" No, really I do want to make her happy, she is my best friend! Because of my organization and trying to learn how to overcome this, I have tried to use some of my wife's organization skills and clean things up.







Ephesian 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.

  2. I can totally relate to this post, Clint. My husband is a pack rat as well. Great idea to keep them out of the way until using them. :)

    1. I will say, If it wasn't for her we would probably have stuff everywhere. She is on the opposite side, very organized. Hay, "pack rat", I resemble that remark. LOL! Anyway, my dad keeped everything and I guess when you grow up around it it is hard to stop.

  3. Well, it's good to repurpose things, but it can definitely take up some space. I have been hoarding tissue boxes this year with some crafts for the boys in mind, but they are getting out of control too!

    1. I am bad about keeping stuff. My wife has every right to get aggravated with me. we would be on "Hoarders" if she didn't ask me to get stuff cleaned up.

  4. Haha. Good for you. Congratulations. I would have hung them on the fence, too. :-)

  5. Great post. This looks like something I would do and I would hear it from my dh. I am sure she is grateful that you are resourceful and a good steward! Blessings and have a super week!

  6. Clint, on our farm we refer to my husbands junk as "inventory" That when when I tell him he needs to take care of his "inventory" he is less offended and I am more likely to see the "inventory" picked up. The hard thing is when I am in need of an item and he proudly pulls it from his pile of "inventory" and I have to eat crow. But, I love him, so I try to be gracious. I try.

    1. I stubbornly keep to many things that I think I will use and then don't. Usually with me I keep it and never can find it again until I go and buy another one! lol

  9. Gotta admit, I'm on your wife's side on this. Just keep the spare jugs out of sight and you'll always have that "happy wife, happy life." How do I know? I spend a lot of my time de-cluttering my husband's stuff. lol

    1. I just need to get more organized. I am on her side too, it's just a decease I think, when you keep stuff all the time. lol!

  10. Getting organized can be very overwhelming, for so long we've kept things out of sight in storage rooms, now the stuff is starting to be too much and we have to do something about it. Piece by piece our home will be completely free of stuff we don't need/use by the Spring.
