Back when I had a sweater that actually fit, I used to smile like this too…

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 f@¢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.

But it was going to be hilarious. (No it wasn’t.)
