Here is something from the so simple you forget to do it department. If you have a young child and if that child is male then you absolutely most every single time check his pockets before you put his clothes in the washing machine. I always forget and I always regret said forgetting. We are talking about pennies, Matchbox cars, old cellphones now used as toys and stickers. However, the real reason that you must always check pockets is the rocks. You want to destroy a pair of pants and a high efficiency front loading washer, you put a bunch of rocks in it. And if those reasons aren’t good enough the noise alone is worth decluttering those pants pockets. It’s all fine and good to say, boys will be boys but do yourself a favor and take the ten seconds to find those playground stones before its too late.
