Works For Me Wednesdays - Hotel Curtains



It's been a while since I have participated in WFMW. Not for any particular reason. I just don't feel like I have any ground breaking - linky worthy knowledge to share.

However, I've got one now. And I feel like it would be a travesty to keep this little piece-o-knowledge to myself. And since I'm all about the sharing, and since my dad thinks I'm a genius, pure genius, for figuring this out, I'm going to share my knowledge with you.

Ready?

Have you ever been in a hotel when the curtains don't close all the way? You can pull and tug and beg and plead with the curtains to close. But they will always have a gap. And you don't realize how annoying the gap is until about 5:30 in the morning when the blinding sun comes through the tiny gap like a drill sergeant holding a flashlight in your face and you can't sleep in on your vacation because of all the sun. And then you wake up cranky and the whole day is ruined.

So, I have the solution for you.

Use this.



They're in your closet in your hotel room. Just grab em and clip those curtains together.



See?

However, by using this idea, I no longer get to see my dad build a tower of suitcases, chairs, and luggage valets to keep the curtains closed.

I guess I'll have to sacrifice that bit o' joy for my dad's sleep sanity.

You're welcome.

I can't believe I've never thought of that. Always wished for a clothespin and never connected the dots.

You are brilliant.
