    Another two house problem:

    Apoarently DH’s underwear is migrating to Hermann. He barely had enough underwear to take him five days out of town.


    This seems strange, and needs further investigation.

    Organizational challanges:

    In Hermann do I keep a set of sheets in each bedroom, or do I keep sheets for the house all in one place? Neds are on two floors. So the choices are centralized or distributed storage. Hmmm? See, at home I only have two beds, both on the same floor, so it isnt such a dilemma, I keep sheets in the linen closet in the bathroom.

    I may have found the answer to DH’s underwear problem. He appears to be packing clothing for every trip to Hermann. You may say “wait, you JUSt noticed this?” But cut me slack, people! I pack for dogs and kitchen and gardens, i do not notice what my husband puts in his backback.

    anyways—-

    He may be taking more underwear to Hermann than he brings back. He seemed surprised that I never take clothing to Hermann (because I have a stock of clothing there) and he needs to learn thatbconcept.

    I have battled that question for years--all linens in the linen closet, or an extra set in individual bedrooms? (First world problem for sure) The verdict for me is, extra set in each bedroom. That also makes it easier to ensure you have the right size sheets if you have different size beds in the bedrooms, and it's so much easier to just reach into a closet and drawer and re-make the bed right after you've stripped it.

    I am not a big fan of more sheets than you need, however. Here in VT, I have one extra set of sheets, and I'm using that one extra for the convertible sofa as well.

    When I figure out what to do in my office/guest room in terms of type of bed, I'll most likely have only one set of sheets for that bed--But I might change my mind if my son continues to come up EVERY weekend as he's been doing, just in case I get backed up in laundry.

    But the beauty of this tiny house is the stacked W/D is only steps away at any given time, so no excuse for not staying on top of it.
