  • Getting Organised

    I arrived at Ikea at 10.05am this morning to avoid the crowd. The trip was worth it.

    As part of my mission to get my mess organised, this is what I accomplished.

    For my magazines;

    For my bathroom, my many many creams and lotions;

    And my other purchases, INCLUDING! a liquid hand soap dispenser;

  • Packrat

    I am such a packrat!

    I have magazines dating back to January 2003! But I can’t bring myself to throw them away! I kept them because some of them have really good articles. I read in some Home and Living magazine that we can just tear out the articles we like, file them, and throw the rest of it away. Ok, I guess I am not THAT! organised.

    They have used up my shelf space, and I have nice storage boxes from Ikea. But that’s filled to the brim too. I am planning to go shopping for storage baskets now to store my magazines.

    But really, do I need to? I haven’t touched or re-read any of my old magazines, so I don’t suppose I will be doing so in the near future.

    And I still cant bring myself to throw them away. They must surely be a fire hazard.

    And NO! I am not going to scan my magazines, and archive them as soft copies.
