One of the most fun things about not buying stuff is that it requires you to get creative.
Today, I had to do laundry. Generally, I confess, I tend to toss my clothes in the dryer, but frankly our building's dryer kind of sucks, and every time I put my laundry in it, I end up kicking myself for wasting energy when my clothes aren't even getting dry. So, this evening, I decided, No More!
Which left me with a slight problem. You see, I don't own a drying rack. And I couldn't run out and buy one.
So ... I thought to myself, What Would MacGyver Do?
And I came up with this:
For those of you wondering what exactly that is, it's the base of my papasan which I have temporarily converted into a drying rack. (It'll resume it's operations as a chair tomorrow.)
It's not perfect, but it'll get the job done. And anyway, whatever MacGyver would have done, you can bet that he wouldn't have just driven to the Target.
