When you buy wardrobe systems for your home, you know what your needs are, so you have a fairly good idea about the kind of systems that will work for you. However, through the years, you acquire things, dispose of others and your lifestyle changes. As your lifestyle changes, your needs for organizing your things also change. Unfortunately, most homeowners do not realize this, so they continue to use the same wardrobe systems that they have used for decades.
You know it’s time to change your wardrobe systems when there’s not enough place to put everything; when your drawers are so full you can hardly close them; and when it’s getting harder to find things because it’s no longer possible to organize them in a systematic manner.
Ideally, all your shirts should be in one place, shoes in another, craft paraphernalia in their own little corner, and your husband’s ties should have their own space. You know the signs when you see them – and you know that not having an organized home is a waste of time. You spend a considerable amount of time searching for things you need when they are scattered all over the place and this is time you could have spent doing chores.
How do you convince your husband to agree with you and therefore happily give you the funds to buy them? First, you must convince yourself fully that you can organize your home and that you will spend the time to do that once the right systems are available.Timing is of the essence because you will convince your husband to buy something which he may not want to buy. You can wait for a special occasion to come around – such as your wedding anniversary, your birthday or Christmas. Then you can ask him to buy what you want as his gift to you. He may flatly deny your request if the timing is not right.
Show him the benefits of buying new systems. Point out the things that are no longer working and give him an idea about how the new purchase will benefit him. Don’t push. If the preceding tactics don’t work, let it go – for a while. Don’t push it. But the next time he asks you where his things are, help him look for it and casually mention how nice it would be to have a more organized home.Negotiate. If your husband refuses to agree to the purchase, it’s probably because he’s being cautious. Find ways to cut back on some expenses so that you can save up and buy what you need.
Everyone wants to come home to a clean and organized house. Your husband will appreciate it if his things are properly and neatly arranged, and he can find what he needs without going on a treasure hunt. Every member of the family will greatly benefit from having wardrobe systems that suits your family’s needs, so convincing your husband to change your current system is a matter of presenting the idea at the right time and in the right way.
