Ever want in on a big idea early?
Like who was the damn genius that came up with the sliding doors on minivans? Or washable markers. Or DVRs.
Well, my dad is pretty sure he’s got the next big thing. You are going to need a visual.
I was recently at his apartment and I noticed this…
So I asked him, “Why exactly do you keep your clothes in garbage pails?”
But he insists they are not garbage pails at all. According to my dad, they are post-modern clothes containers or a mobile closet.
He came up with this brilliant clothing storage system while strolling through IKEA. He was about to buy a boring old dresser when he came upon and these are his words… “stacks of beautiful containers complete with handy-dandy handles.” No assembly required!
If you have ever tried to put together anything from IKEA or a Barbie Dream Townhouse for that matter, you can appreciate the desperate desire to avoid such a situation. And my dad had stumbled upon the perfect alternative to building a dresser.
Now every clothing item has its own place and when it comes time to move, he can just pick up his garbage pails, I mean, his mobile closet, and he’s out the door. (This must be a very popular storage system for fugitives.)
So there you go. I’m sure this idea will be sweeping the nation soon. Get in early!
Now as to why my dad only buys things in black or navy….
I still haven’t quite figured that out.
