That is my voice coming from under the piles of junk in my house. Now that I'm not working full time I have more time to realize stuff. Like the fact that when we moved in to this house four years ago, I had no idea how to organize a household. Ergo, it was never really organized. Now before you imagine a scene from hoarders, it's not THAT BAD - I just can't ever find stuff. I have also come to realize that I am married to a wonderful man, but he is a packrat. He has the "we might need it someday" mentality, and when I was teaching full-time I didn't have the energy to argue. But now that I've started to try to clear things out, I've come to the root of the problem - I have no clue when it comes to organization. My poor Momma tried, but I must not have listened (stop laughing, mom!) So in the past, when I've gone through a closet or drawer, it quickly becomes messy again because I had no system in place to KEEP it organized. But now the question becomes...HOW??
These are the things that drive me crazy: I bought some felt circles to stick under the dining room chairs to keep them from scratching the floor. Now I have some left over, but where do I put them so I can find them again? What category do sticky felt circles fall under? They're not cleaning supplies; they're not hardware....what else can I store them with?
So I turn to you, interwebs.....any suggestions? Help my solve my sticky felt circle crisis!
