Organizing Has Really Gotten Me Down

February 3, 2012 00:43 by ehouston

Actually, my inability to do it effectively is what’s the matter here!  I guess that’s the conundrum of the unorganized person, right?  I type this while simultaneously holding up piles of junk on my desk with my elbows.  Hey, I have to make room for my arms and hands to type somehow, ya’ know?

I challenged myself a while back (will I ever learn?) over at Chic Tweaks Alterations to organize my craft and sewing supply closet.  It’s a mini-walk-in with hanging bars and shelves on each side; the contents of which had begun to spill out into the floor area making it almost impossible to get to the large shelf of vintage fabrics I store along the back wall in between said hanging areas .  After trying to get to some pieces and fearing an avalanche that would have me buried for days with my family wondering where I had disappeared to, I decided it was time.  Time to pull it all out and start over.  Of course, with it being the holidays when this epiphany hit me I knew that task would have to wait until now.  Well, now is here and I have since added two more closets, my desk and the garage to that organizing list.  I know I will get there…eventually.  ;o)

In the meantime I am curious about how other people organize their spaces and keep them that way.  I have found myself gravitating toward pictures of these masterpieces on Pinterest and dewy-eyed dreaming of the day that I get to live in such uniformly stacked and labeled bliss.

Cough it up now folks!  How do you stay in the know with your piles of junk?  Do you somehow avoid the mountains and keep a nice cleaning rhythm throughout the year?  Not me!  I’m a pile until I can’t find it any more kind of person. 

I’m sure there is a therapist out there just dying to talk to me.
