One year my sister bought me a damn-near-perfect shawl collar sweater.
It was awesome: a neutral color that went with anything, warm as hell and – best of all – a perfect fit.
It took me less than a month to shrink it in the [email protected]¢king dryer.
After that I vowed: no more.
I went online and bought a separated laundry hamper to make sure I NEVER accidentally threw a valuable delicate in with my everyday t-shirts and underwear.
With the holiday (and thus, sweater) season upon us, I recommend you do the same.
Separate Your Shit
I dedicated one basket for delicates, one for gym clothes, one for darks and one for lights – and never looked back.
Since then, my wardrobe has continued to grow, rather than – well, I’ll spare you the pun.
But it was going to be hilarious. (No it wasn’t.)
