Every so often, my OCD runs rampant and I feel the need to organize everything in sight.
I mean, not to say that everything isn’t already organized. But something will nag at me and then once I start…..OMG. MUST…..ORGANIZE……EVERYTHING!!
It started with my books.
As I’ve mentioned, I have more books than square footage. And because of some design features in my apartment, I don’t have room for another bookcase.
What that means kids, is that I have to get bloody creative in my organizing.
Because of the books I got for Christmas, I have officially maxed out the places I can strategically put books in my apartment and still have it look ‘decorative’.
I’ve got large art books on the tops of my bookcase, I’ve strategically stacked books on my shelf to be not only decorative but to utilize the vertical shelf space as well as the horizontal, I’ve got books on my mantle, I’ve got books on my desk.
In order to accomplish this, I bought cute bookends. A few decorative boxes to store things in and that’s where it began.
Once I start organizing. Things tend to get a bit out of control.
|Owl bookends. Like my hooters?|
All of a sudden, I needed shelves in my linen closet to organize things. I need a new shower caddy to hold my shampoo and various hair related products.
I needed a new trash can in my bathroom.
I needed this can organizing thing for my kitchen cupboard.
Ooooo. Look at the cool thing they make to organize your sock drawer!!!!
And did I mention I need something to organize the shoes by my front door?
Ya see where I’m going with this?
Once you start. It is almost impossible to stop. And I’m not really in a position to drop $300 on organizational STUFF for my apartment.
But now that I know all this stuff needs to be done. I can’t help but focus on it. Now all I see, are the shoes at my front door. OMG why do I have so many shoes?
And this my friends is why going to stores like Solutions, when you have OCD and a hankering to organize is a BAD IDEA.
Looks like 2013 is going to be the year of CRAZY.
BTW…..for a good laugh, check this list out from Buzzfeed.
Honestly, #15 kills me. There are 2 microwaves in our office and it drives me crazy. I have been known to do this at friends houses. It hurts my head.
