A place for everything and everything in its place

The Phrase Finder has the following to say about the title of my post.

A place for everything and everything in its place

Meaning:
The notion that everything should have a place to be stored in and that it should be tidily returned there when not in use.

Origin:
Samuel Smiles (1812-1904) in Thrift. ‘A place for everything, and everything in its place.’

Some people might say there is no “correct” place to have a cordless phone because always storing it on the base defeats the purpose of being able to have the phone wherever you are. That being said there are places that most people would agree are not good to put a cordless phone.

  • In a sink
  • In the fridge or freezer
  • In the microware
  • In the dishwasher
  • On a stove element

Burnt Phone

I won’t name the person that melted the crap out of our phone but what I can say it wasn’t me, Isabelle or Erika. The funny thing is it still works. It is a little painful to use though because the ear piece is so badly melted.

Warning: Do not try this at home

  1. Remelt it so it’s a little more smooth and nice on the ear!

  2. Not a bad idea. Might be better to go with a direct flame though… maybe have a little more control :)
