My kingdom for the perfect container!
I LOVE plastic containers, actually, I will rephrase, I am crazy about anything that holds Stuff....have been since I was tiny, love all kinds of bags, trinket boxes, storage boxes, even painted styrofoam boxes! Chests really light my fire and a wooden crate...I can hardly breathe!
This week's evidence for the prosecution: because, if you are cleaning off your benches and trying to be better organized (witness Marty Robbins singing "that's the story of my life") then you have to have pretty little boxes to put the stuff in from now on.
I even labelled them, I started well, "General receipts", then "Important" and then fell to that bottom one that you can just see the sticker to, yes, you are correct, it says "Stuff". Now which do you think has the most in it already! The theory is then that it all goes from there to the office files. Another good theory!
When we go to Melbourne next week I have Howards Storage world and Ikea at the top of the list! Not sure they are the top of my daughters though but for the sake of the perfect container sacrifices sometimes need to be made! I love finding new and exciting ways to make better use of space. But maybe after the purging that has gone on here this week I mightn't need any more containers....NAH, I'm going anyway.
I wonder what a psychologist says about women who are always looking for the perfect container?
My Junior psychologist theory is that it is an entrenched desire to be completely organized and therefore some kind of hypothetical "Good" housekeeper.
Another great theory, (if I do say so myself!) but what a pity I can't stick to it-you see so many more exciting things (read quilting here!) occur on such a regular basis that my house is only ever completely tidy for about an hour...and you can guarantee not one person will visit during that hour...and that DH wont call in for a coffee...and it will be like a tree falling in a forest that no-one heard-did it really happen?!
Enough organization, DD home fairly ordinary today so I only managed a little patchy play; a doll's quilt in specified (pale) colours. If you look hard enough you are meant to be able to read Millie in free-pieced letters. It still needs another row of checkerboard and to have the strips sewn together, then I think 2 hours or more work will probably be sufficient. much bigger jobs to finish. Have a great day, Tracey
