My elbow is better which means I couldn’t sit still yesterday.
I found the above pretty mint colored containers at the local Dollar General. Elbow in fine working order, I decided to tackle the problem of my poor overly cluttered office closet. Through the years I have simply thrown items in there with full intent of “one day making it nice”. It’s embarrassing how bad I had let the situation become. Stuff was all over the floor in various unmatched “containers” (i.e. loose bags). I’ll bet I had 20 years of junk thrown in there. It consisted of, but not limited to, power cords, electrical plugs, telephone equipment, old cell phones, projects, yarn, needles, cloth scraps, paints, brushes … well, you get the general idea. It was a mess for which I am dutifully ashamed. 😅 I grumbled and fussed and pulled everything out which piqued Steve’s interest. Sweet man that he is he volunteered to wade through the old cords and such because he knew what most of them where. I kept these items thinking, “Well, I might need it some day!” Like, I’d been through the Great Depression or something. But of course that day never arrives. While Steve was busy with the cords, I sorted the paint, brushes, cloth and so forth. Bag And Tag I call it, like deer hunting. Now that they’re all sorted, some will be properly recycled or used by someone who will use them. Some are burned in the trash debris out back. Some that are beyond help and or won’t burn go in the trash. The remainder are kept, thus the pretty boxes.
I’m so proud of myself. 😉
Alas, because I was distracted and I dragged that sweet man into the impromptu organizational frenzy, the Master Bedroom redo is still on “hold”. Sorry. He does have all the wood cut out. Steve said all he needs to do is put it together then stain it. Then it will be ready to be installed. It supposed to rain and become bitter cold this weekend. Maybe we’ll get to it by then if I don’t injure something else or get distracted again … 😁 giggle
