Organizing Fool

Those that know me will surely attest to the fact that it's safe to describe me as "type A" personality. I won't deny it. That's me to a tee!

Althought I've purged and organized and purged and organized, I still feel like the walls are closing in on me sometimes and I'm constantly mulling over ways to rearrange our remaining things so they are the neatest, most organized they can be. This has led me on a LONG search for a cheap but totally awesome computer desk. It's been a battle. Everytime I find something on craigslist, it's taken by the time I call or email. (I swear some people must sit in front of the computers 27/7 and just wait for things to pop up!) Alas I have been successful!!! This weekend we picked up this totally awesome, totally cheap desk and I've spent Ella's naps organizing and rearanging the house!


All office stuff is in this desk and filing cabinet...no more office stuff all hodge podge out and about driving me nuts!!! Oh man I'm feeling good. Here's a shot of the new "OFFICE" (really just one end of the long living room....but so it goes in a small...but adorable...apartment!) In addition, the window bench that used to be in front of that window has been separated and each one placed under each upstairs window creating the perfect little window seat and storage. And lastly, the bookshelves in the dining room are going to go upstairs. They are not kid friendly and it will look so much cleaner and more open with them out of that space. Seriously people...organizing gives me a high.

Looks great! I especially like the decorative cat on the trunk by the window. :-) Looks like you got your new computer, too! Want to come to my house and get high? -- I mean ORGANIZE STUFF, of course!

Oooooh Baby! You are I are two peas in a pod. Your post got me totally pumped! It runs through my veins, as well. There is not a day that goes by that something does not get organized, purged, or put in a yard sale box. STUFF stresses me! We still have to get a roomful of stuff out of Peter & Shan's barn, and I told Kev I want to just get rid of it ALL!! If we haven't used it for four years, do we REALLY and truly need it?? He assured me that we do need the lawn mower and the snow blower. Details, details.....
