Organization: That's Where It's At!

 This is going to change my life.

 Because, I will finally have a place for this...

And this.... live until I'm done with it. But not the grapes, they don't need to be filed.

No more loitering around on the table or buffet - advertisements, receipts, lists and misc items I need at my finger tips will NOW have a home and know who's boss (proudly points to self).

Yup, this is gonna do it. This one little basket (she's a beauty, isn't she?)... going to turn me from Clara the Cluttered into Zelda the Zen: Organizer of Paper and Creator of Calm.

I could start an organizing business and make MILLIONS - this organizing stuff can't be THAT hard, it's not like Food Blogging or anything. I'm sure my lack of organizational skills and coordination won't be an issue, I mean baskets solve everything - who needs more skills than knowing that?  Besides, if my clients get all fussy then I could just give them links of organizational blogs. That's how I found this idea! That's what inspired me to create this organizational marvel!

Y'all, I feel as if the weight of the world has been lifted. I'm not even going to look around the rest of the house, I'm going to sit in my dining room for the rest of the week (it's close to the kitchen...SCORE!). If I need to go to the bathroom, I'll just close my eyes - I've lived here 20 years, I should be able to make it without walking into too many walls.

Oh, I'm brilliant I am...just freaking' brilliant! Small thanks to the Container Store for having exactly what I needed. Oh...My...Gawd, so much cuteness contained in that store - I almost cried.

I guess I should give a shout out to IHeart Organizing for coming up with the idea that  I may have copied inspired mine. (I can't find the post, but no matter...much to discover on her site, you won't be sorry.)

Stay tuned - I'm full of all sorts of amazingness that I'll share later!


  1. I love the blue and white! Great photos and idea too. Inspiring!

    1. It is so pretty! I love the container store, too bad it is so expensive! :-(

  2. hi, hi hi, love your stick figures
    you just made my "not at the conference" a lot more fun

    1. Thank you!! I'm glad you liked it. It still amazes me that people like my Wordless Wednesdays, but I'm soooo thankful they do!

  3. I adore your blog! You crack me up. I love that.

    1. What a lovely thing to say, thank you! I really appreciate the comment. :-)

  4. That closing your eyes thing really works. Well, unless your dogs aren't completely housebroken, then it can backfire. At least that's what my friend told me.

    1. Hahaha...well, yeah...been there/done that with my geriatric dog who lived to be 19. He sort of got inside and outside confused and when the urge hit? Well, it sort of hit AFTER he did his business. Growing old sucks!
