We've got you pegged
JV: Natalie, what do you live with?
Natalie: I live with a husband who hangs the clothes out for me, which is lovely, but he must colour co-ordinate the peg with the item of clothing he is hanging up.
Natalie: So much so that when Aldi put out some pegs that were pink and green, he was very excited about that.
JV: What had been his solution before if he had to put up pink or green clothes?
Natalie: He’d get close, he’d put up red pegs, green would have blue pegs.
JV: This isn’t uncommon Natalie. The various hanging out clothes habits are the colour coordinating pegs to clothes; there are those who have to put the sheets on the outside, working back to underwear in the middle if they have the hills hoist type line; there are those who can only use the one colour peg, all the pegs have to be red for example. So there are a few who have these issues.
Natalie: He tells me I shouldn't iron clothes... that I spend too much time ironing clothes, but I wonder how much time is spent choosing the right colour peg?
JV: Oh right, yeah... I don’t know, I like to imagine he has like a tool kit that he hangs with the pegs already sorted ready to go.
Natalie: No, he has to search for the peg. Finding the right colour peg takes time.
