I Have a Dream…

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:41 am by chasingtoddlermom

On to the subject that is keeping my mind ever preoccupied.  This deserves its very own entry.  I need more organization in my life!   I have Rubbermaid bins.  And bins, and bins, and bins, and bins, and I ran out of bins so I have bags, and bags, and bags of stuff in my house.  I bought more bins, but the stuff is so buried that I can’t get to it to put it in bins.  Or at least not in any kind of orderly way.  Ugh!  It’s driving me nuts!  The baby’s room is currently a play room and it is packed to the gills with toys–80% of which I’m sure LR never plays with.  And the closet is filled with suitcases, guest bedding, unused home decor.  You get the picture.

I have a dream.  A dream where unnecessary toys are purged and the rest are sorted and stored by age-appropriateness in tidy bins that I can retrieve from storage for baby #2 at just the right moment.  A dream where LR’s old clothes are sorted, some purged, and stored by size and season.  Aah…it’s a beautiful thought.  I just need to tackle it.  I’ve decided I’m going to take over my front room and turn it into my organization combat zone.  I have a feeling it’s going to be ugly but well worth it.  And to think, that’s just getting started.  I have new incentive, though.  I’ve ordered more plantation shutters, some of which will be installed in that room on the 21st.  So I need to get the room cleaned out and repainted by then.  I think I’m up for the task–if I can get over this dumb cold!  And that assumes I can make a decision on paint colors in the next few days.  I have about a million paint chips, but I think we’ll take another trip to Sherwin Williams today for more.

Then there is the subject of my closet.  It’s a complete disaster, which makes me marvel constantly since 90% of the clothes don’t currently fit me.  But at least I can keep that hidden.  We all get to have our “Monica” closet somewhere, right?  That will be my project after the kids’ rooms are finished.
