Dammit Martha Stewart!

Yesterday, I was working with a client with the same problem a lot of us share--mounds of clothes and not much storage space.

The master bedroom closet must look large to be a great selling feature. I have no problem mentioning to sellers that they might want to consider hiding some of their stuff out of sight.

I found these nifty storage containers on wheels that you slide under your bed. 

How perfect are they? It was love at first sight.  Well, of course, they are a Martha Stewart product!

So as fast as my fingers could fly, I went to the Martha Stewart website.  I figured I'll buy a few for my client and couple for me. 

Wrong-y Dong-y.  Martha doesn't SELL these ingenious little units.  Noooooo....she wants you to BUILD them. This was a ruse developed for DIY-ers!

Dammit Martha!  I need immediate gratification!  Give busy people a break! I don't want to make it; I want to buy it.

After I threw my fit and settled down, I found a similar product on

At a hair under a hundred a piece, I may have to reconsider my options.

Now, where is my hammer and tape measure?

    1. Jim, How DE-light-Ful to hear from a dude! Of course, your lovely wife is invited to our wine and cheese build an under-the-bed-rollar-storage party.

      Gentle Reader, I must advise you that the Honeydoo list is an angry, self-perpetuating monster than cannot be tamed.

      Carry on Good Man!

  5. Also shampooing the hair often is important as well as the stability and efficacy has stayed.
    I had to start training myself every day on avoiding them.

    so much that June is declared as National acne killer Awareness Month.
