It’s time for an organizing party.

Our house has become a storage facility for various ‘piles’ of things. There’s the ‘wedding memories’ pile. There’s the ‘beautiful wedding presents’ pile. There’s the ‘laundry’ pile. It’s time to clean house.

First on the agenda is my closet. I want a beautiful, perfectly organized closet. My current closet looks a lot like that, except completely messy and half on the floor. Well, it’s not that bad…I gather up all floor items on a daily basis and throw them in the laundry basket. But this often includes perfectly clean pairs of pants and heels that won’t do well in the dryer, so my system is not working. My purses have also taken refuge in a rather torn American Eagle holiday 2006 shopping bag. It’s not pretty. The way I look at it, the more organized my closet is, the more room I have to store new shoes. You see, in the end, it really is all about shopping.

Here is a visual checklist for our next Ikea run.

Another major organizing project is going to be our bathroom. It may appear to be pretty tidy, but lurking behind those few cupboards of ours I am hoarding makeup in far too many dollar store baskets. I wish they still made those Caboodles things that were so cool in middle school.

The wedding presents are also on the agenda. Right now they are all still in their boxes and gift bags. I think it’s time to pull them out and find a place for them too, because they are really beginning to call my name. The bedding. The towels. The kitchen gadgets. It's definately time to make some pancakes on the big fancy grill. Mmmm.

  1. Caboodles.....lol....what a memory you have. I think yours was a purply-pink colour.

    I agree though - I also have too much stuff.
