Do you have a guilty pleasure that you use that you're too afraid to admit? Like something you purchased from QVC or those As Seen on TV ads? A gimmick that makes your life easier? While yours may be The Bumpit or The Magic Brownie Pan, mine is the Flip Fold.
Go ahead, snicker.
A year ago, while I was still working fulltime, I desperately needed my kids to help with the folding of their own laundry. When I stumbled upon this at the Container Store, I somehow knew this was the answer. It seems silly (and potentially lazy), a tool that folds your laundry for you. But to them it was a fun toy. To me it was a means to an endless pile. Did I mention that it creates perfect folds, like the shirt shown above? I must admit, I use it more than they do and I'm not about to kick my habit.
