In my pledge, “Please, Organize Me!”, I made to myself for this summer I have learned that it is not an overnight success. It will be a journey of baby steps. I started with the great purge in our bedroom. Boy it is amazing what can accumulate in one room.
I moved onto my kitchen. UGH! How many junk drawers does one need? I am low on the number of drawers as it is, so to have 2 as a junk drawer is a little ridiculous. I was able to clean them out and sort into one. I thought why should I go out and buy “pretty” drawer dividers when I had a stack of old check boxes downstairs that I had been saving for something. Well that something happened Tuesday. They have purpose, a calling in life! Now instead of a junk drawer I am calling it the multi purpose drawer.
I sent a text of my success to the Deacon, she was my inspiration, to let her know that after a week with them a little of her rubbed off on me. Her house has to be one of the most organized homes I have ever been in. I don’t know if I will get to that point but I am at least making an effort to make some sense out of our little world we live in. I am not going to go off the deep end, after all that would go against my inner Jimmy Buffett.
“I don't want that much organization in my life.
I don't want other people thinking for me.”
I vow to be the same Fruitcake I always have been but with a little rhyme and reason in her home.
Today I attack the pantry cabinet in the kitchen and the medicine tote on top of the fridge. Wish me luck!
