Life's too short to have a wedgie!

Next time you go through the day wearing a pair of underwear you don't like, as soon as you get undressed at night (or whenever you get undressed, it's not really my job to forbid you for getting naked at 3:00 PM if you're that way inclined) toss them right in the trash. Don't wash them. Don't harrass yourself by thinking you should save them "just in case."

Think of them as the undergarment equivalent of paper towels. You don't reuse them, do you? Wait, don't answer that.

The world is a big place, with lots of underwear. If some theoretical day way in the future, you find yourself with nary a clean pair at 1 AM when all the local underwear vendors are closed, you can always rinse some out in the sink.

I know someone who takes old underwear on vacation with her, wears them and then tosses them out each day. She comes home with less laundry, and declutters at the same time. And if those underwear are truly too gross or too uncomfortable to take on vacation, what are you doing with them? Out they go! Life is too short to have a wedgie.

NB: This works well with socks, too.
