I was at Target and I noticed it was on sale for 97 cent.
NINETY SEVEN CENTS?!?! That is better than you can get at the dollar tree! (see I can be good at math sometimes)
I decided that I couldn't pass up plastic bins for 97 cents. I didn't know what I would do with them, but I'm always up for an organizing project so I snatched them up.
I made sure to quiet that voice in the back of my head. It wasn't the holy spirit but instead it was the voice of Luke reminding me that while I was gone he didn't spend any money at Target yet I seem to spend money there everyday.
Different strokes for different folks.
I brought the 97 cent tubs home and set them aside for the moment when the organization bug hit me.
I was sitting in the living room when the moment struck me. The credenza in our living room needed to be organized. It came to me like a vision.
Good thing I had those handy dandy tubs to fulfill my vision.
The credenza had become my "catch-all" and was in need of some special attention.
After spending about 30 seconds fulfilling my vision I quickly realized I was going to need more plastic tubs.
Again, I quieted the Luke voice in my mind and made a plan to go to Target and buy tubs and ONLY tubs.
Several 97 cent tubs later (followed by coco puffs, Gouda cheese, lemonade and other necessities) I headed home to please my organization yearning heart.
I'm happy to say that I got the credenza organized.
I'm not so happy to say that I got a little over zealous and started organizing various areas in the house all at the same time.
I emptied every drawer of my desk. I dumped out the drawers on our bookshelf, and I cleaned out the junk drawer in the kitchen.
Please tell me everyone has a junk drawer in their kitchen. Or just lie to me.
So now I have an organized credenza, an organized junk drawer and piles of CRAP all throughout my house.
The Credenza before (of course I had to include a pic of my sidekick)
And the junk drawer. I SO wish I had a before picture because it was bad bad bad. Full of papers and coupons and just nonsense:
Where is that vision when I need it?
I now have more objects that need organization than I have organization tubs and also organization ideas.
I have no idea what to do with all my sentimental cards, instructions manuals that need to be saved, old bible studies that I don't want to get rid of and so on and so on.
I feel like that was the opening scene to an episode of Hoarders.
Some of my piles that need a home, is this the beginning stages of hoarding?
Now I just need to figure out how to convince Luke that a trip to Target tomorrow is necessary. Until then please excuse the piles of random papers scattered throughout our house.
Maybe I don't need to go to Target everyday, if this is the result.
