We all have some strange habits; little things we do around the house that seem perfectly normal to us until someone else points out how weird they are. Mine involves the dishwasher. My Grandma had the same habit. So does my mom. I like to think it was passed down.

The other day a friend was at our house and asked me for a napkin, so I reached into the dishwasher, got one out and handed it to her. She looked at me stunned and asked, “Where did you just get that?” A little confused, I looked back at her and said, “From the dishwasher.” I had a similar conversation with Anderson when he first started coming over and with numerous other friends since then. But somehow I always forget that everyone doesn’t do it this way until someone new asks me for a paper product then watches in shock as I reach into the dishwasher.

  1. That is so cute! And it’s a really good idea … storage is always a problem in apartments! Do you do all of your dishes by hand!? You are wonder woman!

  2. ha! i do the dishes by hand out of habit. i’ve just never really used a dishwasher. maybe when we are in a house i’ll start using it or just replace it with actual cabinets!!

  3. This is so funny! It makes sense if you wash by hand… it’s like people that store stuff in their ovens. I wash certian things by hand, but love the convenience of my dishwasher.

  4. In reply to the comment you left me. πŸ™‚ You’re welcome for the tips, but you don’t need any of those! You’re already great!! I’ve just been having a lot of like, 17 year olds ask me, “omglolbrb!!11!! i wanna buy a camera and be a photographer!!!11!!!” and I’m like, ‘Reaaalllyyy?’:p

  5. since we’ve been in Montana (and without a dishwasher) I’ve realized that it actually takes LESS time to wash by hand…my DW at home blows so you have to pre-wash everything anyways…so I think your storage idea is BRILLIANT!!!!!!

  6. My dishwasher issue is that in the silverware caddy thing, I cannot have only ONE utensil by itself. They all need to be in pairs so everyone has a pal LOL. There can be 3,5, etc. together but not just one lone soldier.I cook way too much and use way too many dishes to wash them by hand though. My mom always did them by hand and NO WAY JOSE!

  7. Wow thats odd and hillarious at he same time! My Grandma here in ermany refuses to buy a dishwasher so we have t do all the dishes by hand and I hate it! So I would love to have the dishwasher that you store your cups and napkins in πŸ™‚
