Everybody's organizing!

 

My favorite store is the Container Store. I can stay in there for hours! Anything you can think about organizing, a solution for it is in that store. I had a long talk with myself about all my "stuff". I asked myself, "Do I need to keep it, donate it, or throw it away?" Everything isn't worth buying a container to put it in. Sometimes you can organized too much stuff like I did. I had over a hundred pairs of shoes. The exact number is not important.(smile) All the shoes were organized in clear cute shoe boxes. Some of the shoes I hadn't even worn before. I bought them because they were on sale or they were so cute I would one day buy something to wear with them. Who did I think I was, Carrie on Sex in the City? I really didn't need all those shoes! So I reduced my shoe collection down to 50 pair. Now when I buy shoes I get rid of the same number I bought. I really have to work at this in every room in my house. You have to decide how much "stuff" you want in each room. And when you reach that limit, STOP! You don't have to take everything someone gives you. If you don't have the room for it or you just don't want it say so. Clutter is not good for anyone. I don't want to discourage anyone from organizing. I know that shopping and planning how you going to do it can be fun. But organizing can be expensive! So take time to think about the things you need to keep and organize and separate the things you need to get rid of. If you do this first, you will save space and money!
