Recently I posted a tour of my living space in the new house. Several of you have asked some really good questions about my living situation, and here are the answers!
Courtesy of our lovely Fiona:
1. What clothes do you own? Surely those two baskets don’t contain all your clothes & underwear?
In short, yes they do! My clothes are in the far left basket, and my underclothes in the smaller one next to it. My husband has the same setup on his side of the closet. Our hanging clothes are all on the far right hand side.
And here’s a representation of my current wardrobe:
2. I love love love your bed! Where is it from?
3. Where do you keep your paperwork? Like insurance /medical records etc?
The vast majority of my paperwork is digital and stored online or on a hard drive. Very sensitive items are scanned and stored on a flash drive, which I keep in a fireproof box along with things I need in hard copy (birth certificates, passports, etc). The fireproof box is stored in my trunk.
4. How do you do that with your books?
I bought these amazing little bookshelves from Barnes and Noble. I love them!
5. Where do you keep your spare bedding/bath towels/wash stuff?
We really don’t have any! We have two bath towels, a hand towel, two dish towels, one set of bedding, and we use loofahs instead of washcloths. Once a week I do one load of laundry, which includes all of our clothing and all the towels. I can do a second load with our bedding as necessary. We’re considering getting a second set of sheets and one more towel, for guests. Those will get stored in the trunk as well!
6. What about your kitchen stuff?
We have a handful of kitchen items, including a pot, four plates, two bowls, two glasses, two forks, two spoons, three knives, a cutting board, two coffee mugs, and two travel mugs. We share a kettle, a pasta strainer, and a couple of other things with our roommates. We don’t really use many of their things.
7. What’s in all the little boxes in the corners?
One has games and cards, another has jewelry and our few photo prints. A third has my incense and the last holds love notes.
8. Do you have your own bathroom?
Yup! It’s that door to the right of the entry door.
